I stayed at this hotel in Switzerland for two nights in May.
The room itself was very basic, more like a youth hostel than a hotel. The bathroom was very clean. The hotel itself was poorly decorated, the interior reminded me of a hospital in England!! The lift was tiny and slow. The most annoying thing was that the hotel was very noisy. From my room I could hear other doors closing and people talking in the corridors. I could also hear noise from the square outside.
The positives were that I received a warm welcome and the staff all spoke English. The staff were willing to answer any questions. My room was ready when I arrived at the hotel at 13:00, an hour earlier than the 14:00 official time check in time. The hotel itself was well located on a lovely square minutes away from the old bridge. I could not fault the breakfast either.
Luzern was an absolutely wonderful city and I hope to return there next year. I would have liked to have stayed in Luzern for longer as the town and lake are so beautiful and the surrounding area has plenty to offer. I highly recommend the day excursion up Mount Pilatus which involves a boat trip, a train journey and a cable car ride. However, I am unlikely to return to this hotel as I did not consider it to be good value for money.
