We found our hotel based on reviews on tripadvisor, booked with booking.com and were not disappointed.
We arrived by train from Zurich, and it was a short stroll from there over a bridge to the hotel.
Our room was spacious, clean and the beds were comfortable. Buffet breakfast, which was included in the price was very good and catered to our needs.
We had breakfast on the balcony overlooking the water and Chapel bridge. The view was just amazing!
Although the weather was mainly overcast during our stay, this did not affect the picture postcard beauty of Lucerne, which is truly a most breathtakingly, beautiful place.
We took a boat cruise on the lake to the quiet, charming village of Bechenried, where we spent some time exploring before returning to Lucerne. We highly recommend this trip on the lake, if you want to see the natural beauty of the place with no tourists, and if the weather isn't the best for going up the mountain.
We would certainly stay again at the Hotel Des Alpes if we return to Lucerne, as we feel the location is perfect, in the centre of old town, with most places you want to visit within walking distance.
The hotel offers good value, the staff all spoke English and were very helpful.
