        Individual guest reviews

        • Older travelers
          10.0

          We liked it all from the pleasant and helpful staff at reception and in the breakfast room to the very convenient location for transportation and all that Lucerne has to offer. The room overlooked Pilatustrasse but was absolutely quiet with the window closed. Loved the large "rain" or traditional shower option. Very large granite countertop in bathroom. Privacy door on toilet.

          Nothing negative in our experience.

          Central Location

          We had a room on the first floor and for the only night we stayed in the hotel we could hear the boom from the night club in the building to 12:00 pm.

        • Older travelers
          8.8

          Hotel had an excellent location near to the main rail station and a few minutes walk from the old town. The staff were very helpful in finding restaurants, checking weather for us and generally making us very welcome.

          Rooms were really comfortable although they were a little cramped. We were on the top floor with slopping ceilings so although it was very quite the room seemed very small. Facilities in room were excellent though.

        • Older travelers
          9.6

          Staff at reception is beyond helpful. The room is very clean, the bed is huge and comfy. The bathroom is modern. There is an excellent museum right across the road with a huge Picasso collection and very passionate staff. Don't miss it!

        • Couple
          9.6

          It is very close to Lucern train staion. Just 5mins walking. The staff is professional and they provided the highest floor far from street which wast meeting our request. Breakfast is very good that we can choose salmon and beef which is better than other hotels we booked. Of course the prices of hotel is highest one as well. But is very easy to find when you walk out of train staion. just turn left...

        • Older travelers
          9.6

          Clean room and quietness.Excellent breakfast!

          Television lacked movies but simply featured four or five English news channels. If any sports' information it was strictly European and concentrated on soccer results.

        • Group of friends
          7.0

          The location of the Hotel is excellent, it is near to railway station, bus stops and restaurants

          This hotel is not worth for the money you pay. Room was too small and the air condition was not working and it does not have the standards of a 4 star hotel.

        • Older travelers
          3.8

          The location in the center of the city. Very well comunicated. La localización en el centro de la ciudad. Muy bien comunicado.

          - Very old and aged hotel. - We couldn't accommodate the luggage, the wardrobe in all rooms is very small (just 30 cm wide). We couldn't unpack the luggage, even in the Junior Suite and we had to leave them open on the floor. So we decide to leave the Hotel next day. Nothing is writing on the Internet page this Hotel has a very especially small wardrobe size.

        • Family with children
          10.0

          Lovely hotel, that was 200m away from the station, but in a quiet large street (just needed to turn left coming out of the train station when coming out the main entrance facing the bridge towards Old Town, hotel was 200 m from the Old Town (one street to cross, then via shoppping arcade and you are at the famous wooden bridge of Luzern). On arrival, I was upgraded to a Junior suite, which was lovely as I was traveling on my own, yet with my 17 month old daughter and the extra space was very welcome. The bed was comfortable, yet firm, the bathroom had excellent installations (great vanity and fabulous extra large shower and high quality vanity items and the decor was elegant, yet simple. There was a lift ewhich was big enough for the pram, one luggage and myself. Breakfast was included and a buffet with lots of variety. The front desk staff was very friendly and gave me a city map and explained where to go, one of the ladies of the breakfast staff was also helpful with my daughter finding specific fruits for her for example. The dinner I ordered in for my daughter was yummy. Schnitzel and Roesti were perfect.

          Some rooms were on the upper part of the floor you were on, so that with a pram, it isn't always easy to access (help was offered by the staff, I just didn't realise I would need it, so it would have been good for frontdesk staff to mention the steps seeing the pram...being pro-active would be good). Same when I left the hotel to go for breakfast with the pram, yet going to the bar next door at breakfast time is done internally (no need to leave the hotel), again pro-active comment would have been good- Tomato soup on children's menu was too spicy for children, seemed to contain lots of paprika or peppers, probably would have been better to have a potato, carrot and zucchini soup with cream for example on the menu. Lady manager from the Breakfast bar could have been more welcoming and smiling at guests, instead of going back and forwards between kitchen and breakfast area, looking at numbers of travellers arriving, but not indicating them any table, smiling, nor talking to them-

        • Single
          9.2

          The styling was very modern, although the room seemed a little on the small side for American tastes (I am American), it was functional enough for 1 person. The bed was very large (King Size), and the room had both a refridgerator and microwave, which was nice.

          Bathroom with the pocket door was a little close to the bed, and the shower stall did not have a full glass to enclose the shower. I would have liked a bathtub (with shower option), instead of only a shower. However with the glass on one side, a lot of water got out on the floor before I realized it was going there when using hte rainshower.

        • Family with children
          8.2

          The location of Hotel is very convenient.our room is just upstairs of Hotel bar , very noisy at night.All staff are very helpful .i like the Hotel,If I come back to Luzern again I will definitely stay there again.

        • Family with children
          10.0

          Staff very friendly. Room quite small but very clean, well equiped and value to price, breakfast included. Next to the Pont de Lucerne and touristic sites. I asked for a high level room and got it.

          Mexican restaurant at the Ground floor with terrace is a bit noisy and I can imagine that having a room at the first or second floor in summer might be uncomfortable if sleeping with open windows. This is why (having read the comments of other users), I asked for a room at a high floor.
