We had a lovely room overlooking Kapellbrücke (Chapel Bridge). The hotel is elegant and quiet with gracious staff. We were able to walk everywhere from the hotel. We arrived by train and the walk from the train station across the river was not difficult. Breakfast was included in the room rate. This seems to be rare in Switzerland and was...

This is a great location in old town Lucerne. We stayed two nights and drove here from Munich. If you have GPS you will find it, otherwise it is a challenge. We parked in a reasonable, safe garage about 1.5 miles away, which was a very nice walk by the lake. The rooms are very small, and we probably had...

We just ate at the restaurant. Didn't stay. The food was good. My friend had a dish from Lucerne - pastry with meat, sausage, mushroom and sauce which was very good. I had spareribs with barbecue sauce, fries and ketchup.

If staying there get a room facing the water, the back is an alley and very noisy in the morning. Comfortable bed and a fan in...

We'd booked a Double Superior with Balcony and River View, and were allotted room #456 on the 4th floor. To be able to walk into your room's balcony and see the Chapel Bridge at handshaking distance, the Jesuit Church across the river on one side and the railway station and jetty on the other - against a backdrop of the...

Stayed at the Hotel Des Alpes in April. This hotel is a must if you are in Lucerne. Had a room with a view of the city, river and mountains, wooden bridge was right outside the door. Best view to be had in Lucerne. You can see the train station right from the hotel, no more than a 5 minute...

Room was small as most are in Europe but clean. Our room was on the back with a city view which meant overlooking other roofs. We did have a balcony but nothing to look at. It is in a perfect location only a 5 minute walk from the train station and right on the river front.

Nice hotel, room very small but adequate for one person. Room was spotless and staff very nice. Situated right on the lake, but main entrance is at the back of the hotel, and it was very difficult to get there by car. I thought cost of such a small, small room was too high, but I guess you pay for...

This hotel is in a great location close to the river and the historic bridge! The room was very small but adequate! The bed was comfortable with plenty of pillows. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was good! The restaurant was fair! The food was just ok as was the service!
