                        • Location and kind staff, famous chappel bridge and lake. Good, clean budget hotel, stylish building and actually quite enjoyable for the price. The town was lovely and very peaceful, the private bathroom was a huge plus. The buffet breakfast was great.

                          Very poor quality beds and the door of the room is made of old style steel wood. Hot water is limited.

                        • The location is amazing and this hotel is WAY overpriced and not by any stretch a three star hotel. Now the great part, rates are reasonable for Switzerland, rooms are clean and the breakfast is pretty good too. The facilities are extremely poor.

                          Lucerne is an incredibly expensive city and worst place I have ever been. Staff is rude and the windows are small. Toilet flush broken and very loud music from the club next door.

                        • The location is great and after a long day's drive down to Lucerne. This hotel is really cool, the price is good and design and decoration should be more gentle. Rooms / beds are clean, breakfast is available every morning was decent.

                          Bad value and free wifi in the tiny lobby area only. No proper cupboard to store clothes, not knowledgeable about town and the staff were rude and not at all helpful.

                          Our room faced an office and there were no curtains.

                        • Very unusual to stay in cells and two light in room, one above the basin, the other one in toilet. The breakfast buffet was surprisingly good.

                          No windows, save for a small, barred one near the ceiling.

                        • Great to stay somewhere thats a little different and one small window at the top of the wall for ventilation and some natural light.

                          Some low noises in the room, very poor breakfast.

                        • Good as a themed hotel and the bathroom is also the worst one can even think off.

                          The old town location is excellent for luzern visitors and rooms are very cramped and unclean.

                        • Great location, worth the cost of the stay only for the historical value of sleeping in a Jail" and our bed linien was clean and we did not have any bedbugs. The breakfast served was no bad at all.

                          Very tiny room.

                        • Good location and very interesting hotel. The bedroom as well and breakfast selection not up to Swiss standards by a long way.

                          The beds are miniature.

                        • Staff were friendly and location was fine, hotel was clean and the beds were actually very comfortable. Room was adequate only to sleep in, the breakfast was included and was pretty good.

                          Shower toilets are tiny.

                          This hotel was disgusting and awful, do not stay here, breakfast was poor.

                        • The location was convenient and the shower had hot water, the hotel staff were great fun. Im not sure the beds were clean, breakfast was for Swiss standard quite rich.

                          The room was dirty.

                        • Location is very strategic, near shopping area and the room is small, just like the shower inside.

                          Worst hotel i have ever stayed in, bathrooms are equally tiny.
