    Superb location ! Its in the middle of all activity. Walkable from the station and lovely view of the Lucerne Bridge. Book in advance to get better deals. Its worth paying little higher to get the lake view room.

    Fantastic hotel at a great location. Very friendly staff, great breakfast. I'd love to stay again one day. If there is a drawback it is parking. No parking available nearby. Nevertheless, public transport is in near proximity.

    I loved everything about this Hotel. It's location was an ideal place to stay in Lucerne, very close to the train station for travelers and also close to plenty of restaurants and bars. The view from the rooms facing the river cannot be beat.
