“7 Nights in the Summer”
Reviewed June 18, 2014

This is a good Hotel with a good location (only a few minutes by Bus from the Bahnhof). It has good facilities and the computer was free! I have no real criticisms, though if the Breakfast started at 0630 instead of 0700, I would have been even happier. However this is a minor matter which should not overlook the overall experience.

The hotel is in a great, central location. Reception area is quite presentable with a friendly service. Breakfast was good too - for a Best Western. . But the rooms are a total letdown. Old, dated, uncosy, I thought only hostels and youth centres would look like that - so a one star for the room and ugly bathroom. Ours was on top of it overlooking the main street which was very very noisy until morning hours. The price doesn't reflect all this, so next time we will choose to pay extra and stay somewhere better.

The hotel is a little walk away from the trainstation but it's not to far. We stayed in a one bedroom suite on the 5th floor. There was a nice big balcony with loungechairs, a separate toilet and a neat and tidy, but not to big, bathroom. The only thing we missed were the tea and coffee stuff but the rest of the room was perfectly okay, with the sittingcorner and (of course) the separate bedroom. The breakfastbuffet is also good with several choices of bread and yoghurt.

Room Tip: The elevator makes some noice, so stay away from it...

When I opend the hotel door for the first time, all I could think was that awful "old" smell of cigarette. That smell was overwhelming everywhere at the hotel. Hotel itself and the rooms are old and dated. Rooms had no soundproofing at all, so you could hear noice from the corridor all night long. There was no instructions where to find a hotel parking and it was difficult to park in front of the hotel even for a quick stop to unload the car. I would pass the breakfast. They could do so much with a small make over. Staff and the location were ok.

Good hotel in central Lucerne. Included breakfast. Service good, friendly and helpfull staff. Therooms are a bit small but normal for a standard Best western hotel. The price is around 150 francs for a double.

Wonderful location if you want to see the old town of Lucerne. Near to everything. Parking was difficult and had to pay for this. Staff was very freindly and accomidating. Was able to park the car and explore the town on foot, which was nice.
