If you enjoy bed bugs and zero air conditioning then this hotel is for you. The food is basic and the bathrooms are like ikea cupboards that you wear shoes in. Located conveniently in a town where beauty is everywhere you look. Disappointing to have bed bugs to say the least. Otherwise I'd say this is a good hotel for... More

Loud, dirty, ugly, uncomfortable. There was one guy on our floor who was drunk and high and was yelling all night long. Glasses dirty at breakfast. Ugh, just avoid it. you are one street away from nice places, but the hotel is located in ugliest street in Lucern.

We stayed there for one night. We got a double room which wasn't big but that wasn't a problem for us. The bathroom is a box in the middle of the room and its ceiling is "transparent" but not clean,you can see the dust trough it. The shower curtains were disgusting with moist over them. There's small curtains on the... More

The idea of it is interesting enough and would be good if well done. There can be no excuse for dirty bed linen. Even the most basic of hotels get this right. The sheets were marked had definitely not been freshly laundered. The mattress was torn and dirty. Beds were something like you would find of a campsite, poor thin... More

The hotel is designed for low budget holidays. It is a jail theme as the hotel used to be a women's jail. It has the bare minimum enough to rest your head. Beds and pillows are uncomfortable, it is noisy with all the people outside and if it wasn't for our tour staying there it would not have been a... More

I stayed here with Contiki - I thought this was a great hotel. The room was small but we were only here for 1 night. The location was convenient and the overall theme of the hotel was exciting. I don't think I could stay here for a long period of time but for one night it was great. Just be... More

The only reason I stayed here was because it was booked by Contiki tours. It was the most horrible experience we all had! Luckily, I had brought bed bug spray and sprayed our room but slept only a few hours and with lights on. Those who did sleep ended up with bed bug bites. There is nothing quirky about this... More

We booked this place on line on the day of arrival. We thought it looked interesting and quirky. It was definitely both of those things! The room we had (there were three of us) contained a bunk bed, and a single bed. Apparently when it was a jail, it was originally designed for 2 cell mates. We were definitely overcrowd!😊... More

Had a triple shared room on the 2nd floor. The beds are clean and toilet with showers are basic. The wifi only works if you're near the reception or 1st floor. For some reason the hallways can get a little creepy at night. There is a club downstairs so and it's free entry if you're staying at the hotel.

I was there to stay for a night and going to mountain the next day, and i am just looking for a bed to stay over. The hotel is more like a hostel, a very simple room with basic bed and toilet with shower. No towels or toothbrush or slippers. I was luckily enough to stay there at weekend and... More
