    it is in the center of the old town of Luzern and makes very easy to walk around this old place.

    A lovely small historic hotel. Originated in 13th century! Great location in the heart of the old city, within walking distance to the train station. Room was clean with comfortable bed / linens. Also clean and modern bathroom. Breakfast was included and was very nice. We also had two meals in the restaurant. The speciality of the house was a puff pastry with meat and gravy - excellent! We were also pleased that the hotel had an elevator to assist with getting to upper floors with luggage.

    The lady waitressing at the hotel was so rude and intimidating we were not game to step out of line. Perhaps the hotel could advise their staff that we are actually paying guests and should be treated as such. When asked if we would like to have a table for two near reception we asked to sit in the actual restaurant. The waitresss took a table cloth from people sitting at another table and set ours with a great deal of drama, the meal was served with anger and unfortunately for us the same waitress was at breakfast. We did laugh but others may not find it so funny. Customer service is not a priority at this hotel and it wasn't only us that earned her displeasure witnessed another guest trying to access internet but that is another story.

    Wonderful, friendly, helpful staff. Very comfortable in a fab location. We ate in the hotel most evenings as the food was so good - traditional Swiss! I can highly recommend this hotel!

    The location of the hotel is very good. It is near the interesting places in lucern. My room is clean and big.

    The hotel had very welcoming staff. The room was quite large, and clean, a good sized bathroom. It was close to the rail station, and a very short walk into the old town. It's located in a little square which is very picturesque. There is a church next door, which chimes, but it didn't bother us during the night at all. There is also a resturant attached to the hotel (where you enter to register), we didn't eat there but it seemed to be popular in the evenings (no noise upstairs though).

    No kettle, and no hair dryer. When we went back to the room one afternoon all the lights in the hallway were off making it hard to see the stairs.

    Centrally located in historical area and 10 minutes easy walk from Railway Station in the old town. Naturally it was Swiss clean and everything worked. English widely spoken, breakfast good too . We had a little verandah overlooking a lovely square below.

    All fine - maybe be prepared for gentle chimes from local bells through the night.

    Great location in a quiet square just a few minutes walk from the centre of town. Good food, September is the hunting season and I had fillet of wild boar on my first evening and roast stag on my second evening.

    Facilities rather basic, no cable or sat TV, just local channels with poor reception.

    Location. Restaurant.

    Old fashioned rooms and bathroom. There was a night club nearby noise until 4 am on our Friday night stay.

  • Single
    7.8

    Close to city centre but very quiet. Nice large shower cubicle! Good breakfast.

    The entrance and reception area are not very attractive. I wonder whether it would be better to encourage people to enter (at least when they first arrive) through the restaurant.

    Location is perfect,near the city center and all the main points, eg.koncert hall, very easy to find, parking house is just over the street.

    Breakfast was nothing special.
