We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights in September, 2012. This is a beautiful hotel in the old section of Lucerne, with amazing views of the city. We stayed in a double room, with a balcony overlooking the river. Although the hotel is an older building, the rooms are updated in a modern boutique style. The balcony we had was very large, complete with a retractable awning and relaxing lounge chairs with cushions.
The room came equipped with a coffee and tea maker and unlimited supplies for making as much as we wanted. We also had air conditioning in this room, which was absent in many of the other places we stayed in Switzerland.
The breakfast buffet was all you could ask for, which selections of bread, cheese, fruit, hot breakfasts, coffee, tea, meat, juice, etc. The breakfast room was very relaxing and overlooked the river - a perfect way to start the day.
The location of this hotel is superb - within walking distance of the train station and right in the heart of historic Lucerne. This location is within an hour of Zurich airport, so it is an easy train ride to get your flight without having to stay in Zurich.
