    Good

    It was very close to the lake and the train station, therefore allowed quick mobility as well as wonderful views of the mountains ....

    There should be ACs in rooms, also the internet connection was very weak

  • 6.2
    Good

    Upon arrival the receptionist was very welcoming and friendly. Breakfast had a decent variety and the coffee machine was great!

    They did not repait the broken toilet seat however they did repair the leaking and not functioning soap in the shower. The receptionist in the morning was not nearly as friendly as the one when we arrived and really should not be at the front desk.

    Room size was decent for three people. Washcloths!! Very unusual in Europe. Wonderful down comforters. Comfy bed. Very friendly and helpful staff.

  • 8.8
    Superb

    This was a family-run hotel with the owner present every day we were there. The staff was warm and helpful. Good location--we walked to the hotel from the train station.

    It was unusually hot during our stay. There was a fan in our room and we could open the windows, but air conditioning would have been wonderful. (We knew when we booked that this hotel,like most in Europe, has no a/C.

  • 9.2
    Superb

    They had an ice machine for guest use. Breakfast was very good. Had a fridge in room. Beds very comfortable.

    Elevator very small.

  • 8.8
    Superb

    Basic,comfortable hotel.Room nice and clean.Good continental breakfast,good coffee at breakfast.Free computer use in reception area. Lucerne is expensive so this hotel is relatively good value (over £200 sterling difference for the stay compared with a local 4 star hotel).

    Room tended to be rather hot (although there was a fan on the dressing table).Not told about swimming pool on arrival (available at sister hotel next door).No tea/coffee facilities in room which would be nice.
