Reviewed July 11, 2012

Stayed here 3 nights in a triple room which nicely accommodated my wife, adult son and myself.
Staff was friendly and helpful. The complimentary breakfast was good and helped save much money on food. Location very close to train station and all the sights down town. The trip to Mount Pilatus was the highlight of our stay there.

They put us in the firs floor, right above a night club. Imagine the sleep quality... Loud music until 3am. Some rooms were very small and with awfull view (you can see the hotel kitchen). The breakfast was too expensive (EUR 34). When we entered the room, it has not been cleaned, so they put us in other room (bigger).
Although the rooms were new and clean and the bed were very comfortable, I wouldn't stay there again. My boyfriend forgot a leather jacket in the closet and when we called the day after, they said no one has find it...

You cannot beat the location. Its just a walking distance to all the attractions, train station shopping etc. Comparately it is a small Renaissance hotel, but very nice with decent size rooms. Very comfortable beds. The front desk was very helpful and made our stay very comfortable. Unfortunately, it rained both days and we could not go to the mountains. However, Lucerne is a beautiful little town and we walked around (umbrellas provided by the hotel) and took the city trolley tour.
I would recommend this hotel to all my friends.

The hotel entrance is small but rooms are very modern and comfortable. We were
upgrade to a deluxe room which was extremely nice. The Wi-Fi has a limit of 20 minutes
so make sure you get couple of vouchers from the reception. The hotel is about 5
- 10 min walk from the central station. When you arrive at the station take left
exit. We could hear some music coming from street but wasn’t' too loud as our room was
located on an upper floor. The Thai restaurant few blocks away is excellent but VERY
expensive. I would recommend it for a special occasion.

We enjoyed two lovely nights here in May and wish we could have stayed longer. The location is extremely convenient to the train station and all the sights of the old town. The front desk was very helpful, giving us two superb restaurant recommendations, candid yet friendly advice on sightseeing, and helping us find our way around town. The room itself was modern yet comfortable, and large (especially by European standards). We did not get to experience the facility's other amenities (breakfast, bar, gym) because we were too busy exploring Luzern, but this was the perfect home base. I have to give a shout hooray for the free internet access and the ability to register multiple devices (we had two iPads and two iPhones). That was a huge help for posting photos to the family back home!

Hated that we only got to stay one night. Great location, wonderful rooms and staff. Hotel is old on the outside and seems brand new on the inside. Loved that all the windows and our balcony doors could be opened. Very comfortable beds - which we needed after a sleepless transatlantic flight and full day of sightseeing. Everything in Switzerland is expensive, but I honestly thought this hotel was good value for the money. Don't miss the watch tower walk - it was one of our favorite things, wonderful views of the city.
