The Hotel Zum Rebstock is an extremely charming hotel that is snuggled directly in the heart of Luzern next to the Luzern Cathedral.
The hotel is about a 5-10 minute walk from the train station (across the bridge), which was not much of a hassle at all as the pavements were flat making it easy to roll our bags along the way while taking in the beautiful sights that Luzern has to offer. The hotel is also close to all the major attractions of Luzern and as such we were able to walk to all the attractions easily from the hotel.
Not only does this hotel enjoy a prime location next to the cathedral, it is also extremely beautiful to look at. The architecture and the facade of the hotel was extremely inviting.
The rooms are also extremely welcoming and the hotel has its own unique charm that adds to the value of staying at such a hotel. As we were a family of 8 people, we had taken 2 rooms. One room was in the main hotel building itself, and with the aid of an extra bed was able to accommodate 3 people. It was a cosy room that came along with an amazing view of the cathedral. The second "room" was located in the adjacent building and was in fact an apartment. We absolutely LOVED this apartment. It had 3 separate bedrooms that accommodated 5 of us comfortably. There was a kitchen(stocked with plenty utensils) and a inviting living room where we were able to relax as a family together. The best part of this room, was the view. There was a balcony that offered us a view of downtown Luzern. We were able to see the cathedral, the ancient bridge, the tower, and the Jesuit Church and of course not forgetting the Lake. The only drawback perhaps was the lift that was able to only hold up to 2 people at once. This is quite common in old buildings around Europe, as the lifts were added in later after the buildings construction (often along the stairwell). This could be seen to add to the charm of the apartment and as such, we were not put off by it.
The hotel also offered us complementary breakfast in the morning, which was serviced by extremely hospitable staff. The "old man" as we remember him, was extremely kind and even remembered the name we of my grandmother.
All in all I highly recommend everyone to stay at The Hotel Zum Rebstock if one is searching for a quaint charming place in the heart of Luzern, which is affordable and not overpriced like many other hotels in downtown Luzern.
