We were at Villa Maria for 2 nights in mid-August - since arrangements were made by someone else in our group, I didn't comparison shop and can't say if it was much cheaper than other places, but I did find it to be quite expensive. Maybe relative to other places in Lucerne at this time it was reasonable.... The owners...

This is a lovely B&B in a great location, just outside of busy Lucerne. It is about a 15 minute walk from the train station along the lake. It is located on a busy two lane street so if your room is on that side of the building, there will be street noise. They provided ear plugs however and they...

The Pension is located abt a 15-20 minute walk from main train station. You can take the 6 or 8 bus and it will drop you off two blocks from the Pension. Breakfast, which was a bit better than continental... Clean, bright room. Shared bathroom...but sink in the room. Staff was very friendly, welcoming and cooperative. They just put in...

We stayed 2 nights in Pension Villa Maria, and chose it because it ticked all the boxes: it is well-reviewed on Trip Advisor, a budget option, and in a reasonably central location. We had a corner room on the first floor which was unfortunately incredibly noisy due to the traffic outside. We were aware that there were shared bathrooms, but...

Reading the reviews just before we arrived I was quite worried about the shared bathroom (my husband made the booking) however was delighted to arrive to a room with a bathroom/toilet included (yay husband for booking it!). The gentleman on check in was very friendly and helpful offering up a map and general information without being asked. The room was...

We stayed in the family room on the top floor with internal bathroom. This room was quiet overlooking the garden and had a lovely view of the lake. I think you experience may differ depending on the room type you book. For us, as a family, this was a cost efficient option compared to other hotels in Lucerne. Esp as...

I was disappointed in this hotel. The noise was unbearable. The street noise was bad enough but what kept me up at night was the noise coming from other hotel guests. Since it was shared showers and toilets people were going in and out of their rooms and you could hear everything. The rooms were fine, the staff was great...

Really good hosts and convenient location near the banks of the lake (though there is no lake view).....It is a convenient walk or a short bus ride away from the train station and boat station. On a day when we had to leave very early in the morning on our trip, we were given packed items for our breakfast kept...

The room was very spacious and clean. The location was very quiet and next to the beautiful Lake Lucerne. The host was very friendly and the breakfast was lovely. It was about 15 minutes walk to the city centre. But you could take a bus right outside the hotel to town/train station. My complaints would be: 1. We found out...

We enjoyed a fabulous 10-year anniversary celebration through London, Paris and 5 cities in Switzerland. This was our last stop and it was the best. The B&B was situated about 30 meters from the lake. It's a 1 minute walk to the nearest bus stop - very convenient. Maybe 8 minutes to the train station. Pros: Excellent staff - probably...

“Choose a room on the back side of the B&B. No air conditioning or ceiling fans so you have to sleep with the windows open in the summer and the noise from the street may bother you. They do supply ear plugs which help a lot.”
