    The city is magnificent! Hotel is excellent! It is in the beginning of the historical center, and entrance for the car is conveniently ,is the own parking., the big rooms (we stayed at 305 with the big balcony). In the room all is conveniently - bed, pillows, blankets, the TV, the big bathroom, good speed of the Internet. We traveled by the car and we had a trouble - the windshield was broken . Owners of hotel Margaret and Ernest have kindly solved this problem - they have found a car service and have agreed about glass replacement. We needed only to give car keys and in the morning of next day our car was returned to us with new windshield and even new vignettes. Super! And also they advised restaurant with the Swiss dishes and national show. We have great pleasure from this evening and an excellent fondue! We recommend this hotel for all tourists, because this hotel dont have lacks and you will be surrounded by attention. Margaret and Ernest - you are the best owners! Thanks a lot!!!

    Good lakeview and kind staff

    hotel price is a little high.

    Family suite is huge, clean and comfortable. Staff very friendly and helpful. Location superb, great views and short walk into the centre. Breakfast very good.

    Nothing apart from the cost, would recommend requesting a car parking space when booking as very few spaces.

  • Group of friends

    This hotel was very well located, whilst not right in the centre, it's only about 5min walk from where all the bars, restaurants and shopping is and overlooks one of the walking bridges, it's also perfectly located for a walk along the old city wall which I would highly recommend, probably something many people don't do when you visit Lucerne but well worth it. You get great views over the lake and the city and the wall itself is very interesting and well preserved. The facilities are simple yet stylish and is excellent value for money. I would definitely recommend this to friends who are not wanting to spend a small fortune on accommodation and I'd stay here again. Try to get a river view though!

    Reception staff helpful & very nice. Overall good value for a expensive city!! We stayed in a triple room with balcony facing the river - clean, big room with attached bathroom and nice view. Disadvantage- rather warm (room facing the east) and no air condition - make sure to turn down the blinds during the day!!

    The lady staff at breakfast area rather rude & unfriendly.

    Spacious room and washroom. Clean room. Comfortable beds. Great TV channels.

    No light-protected curtain. Hard to sleep at night.

  • Family with children

    Newly remodeled dorm-like facility with designer bathroom, comfortable beds, desk, and window over the river. Very clean, very modern, very quiet. Ample breakfast in spacious dining room. Lift. Key to hotel after hours. Automatic opening entrance doors to make it easier to get in with baggage. Easy to find, close to train station, Chapel Bridge, shopping and the Lyon.

    Should have signage indicating you must lock your room door from the inside with a key.

    We booked the hotel's Garden Suite, a one-bedroom apartment in back of the hotel in a separate apartment building, for a two-night stay. The suite was pristine -- with comfortable beds, a large, modern eat-in kitchen, flat screen TV, chairs and a modern bathroom. Everything was sparkling, neat and clean. Outside the suite's front entrance is a small garden with a table and chairs to relax outside after a long day of site-seeing. The staff, particularly Peter, who ran the front office, was friendly and helpful. The hotel is very-well situated to Lucerne's Old Town, which is just a five-minute walk away. Coming back to the suite each night was like going home rather than to a hotel room. It is about a 15-minute walk from the city's train station, which could be a bit longer if you have a lot of luggage. Would definitely book again when staying in Lucerne.
