We've stayed at this hotel location numerous times over the years. It has recently become Ibis Styles and when we first tried this new brand it was OK. This hotel has never been 4 or 5 star, but still it was comfortable and clean, and in a great location.
We have just returned from our last stay at Ibis Styles Luzern. It has become a mecca for tour groups from all over the globe. There must be people "cooking" in their rooms because the hotel no longer provides a hot pot and coffee and/or tea. (yes, it is available in the lobby for free, but I like to drink it in my pajamas in the early morning!!!)... I travel with a hot pot for this reason, and we have used it in many hotels in Europe, when a hot pot is not in the room or is available for a fee. Never have I been told what was on a note at the Ibis Styles Luzern... the note, in so many words said.."We see you are using a hot water pot. If there is a fire alarm and the firemen have to come, we will charge you for this visit. Please stop using your hot water pot." So we stopped... but come on! Heating water is not NOT ALLOWED? This hotel provides a microwave... imagine burning popcorn.... isn't that a bigger infraction??? Anyway, no more hot pot usage in the room. And then, no more English channels on the TV. Nada. Zip. Zilch. We asked at the desk, and in so many words we were told that the Swiss government is to blame for this one. Huh? We have English channels in Zurich and Lausanne.
We DID have one fire alarm malfunction (before the note appeared in our room) and the elevators were out of service for a while. We had to hike up 6 floors to our room.
The room, by the way, was really one of the nicer ones we've ever had at this hotel.
But no more Ibis Styles Luzern for us. Time for a different hotel for our twice-yearly trips to Luzern.
