Man at reception during check in was friendly and helpful - I think his name was Daniel from memory. We were in the lotus room. The room did get a bit warm at night and we couldn't leave the windows open due to the noise and cigarette smoke from the square below. There was a fan for use in the...

We stayed here for one night. Positive: - Location - right in the middle of the cobblestone street square - Good breakfast - Reception staff is friendly and courteous - Decent rooms for the price - every room has a theme, ours was the egyptian room. Not bad, not extraordinary. I would have loved to stay at the swiss chalet...

Our room was not yet ready when we arrived so we dropped our luggage with concierge. The lady was friendly and offered suggestions on where to eat and visit. We booked the Hotel Magic but got an upgrade to the Alstadt apartment. It was renovated just 2 months ago. Feel like brand new. We stayed at the first floor with...

We stayed here on our vacation through Switzerland. We booked the hotel through booking.com. We arrived early from Zurich and couldn't check in but they let us leave our luggage, which was very nice! The lady at the front desk was very friendly as well. We checked in later and the room is only decent I would say. The bed...

Every room in this hotel is made to a theme. Ours was a "Pirate Room" Boat shaped bed, Pirate guns, measure chest, Ropes handing from the ceiling.... felt as if we were actually sleeping in a pirate ship! Small but clean bathroom, clean linen...what else can one ask for. Nice quaint hotel in the heart of town, surrounded by shopping,...

The best thing about this hotel was the excellent reception staff at the Krone hotel where check-in/check-out is done. The room was large and it had a marvelous tub big enough for two, but many things were off: drapes were quite obviously very dirty at the bottom hem, the bubble jets in the tub did not work, the table on...

The hotel is in walking area of town. Old heritage building. Nice beds with a bathtub inside room. But the actual bathroom was small. Breakfast was nice but in an separate building in a hotel having same owner. The area is best for staying in the Town.

Great location with a gorgeous view of the clock tower! Quirky themed rooms, capsule coffee machines and a brilliant buffer breakfast (at another hotel around the corner). The Bircher muesli was the best!! A couple of negatives though...the pillows were feather so very soft causing an uncomfortable nights sleep and the curtains were virtually non existent. They didn't fit the...

Great option if staying in Lucerne for a few nights. It is located in the old town conveniently situated by the bridge.Rooma are nice and clean. I was upgraded to the Lion heart suite which has a lovely balcony overlooking the square.
