Stern Luzern was clean and comfortable. The staff downstairs was friendly enough, and the room, while small, had just enough space for my husband and I. We brought every adaptor but the Swiss one, but the hotel/restaurant staff allowed us to rent one with a 25 franc deposit. Breakfast was tasty. It's in an excellent location for walking around!

perfect location; on the quiet side of the river with the better shops and close to the Rosegard which is a very special place. the rooms are individualized and have character. It feels like an old style pensione and with intimacy but not the efficiency of hotel. very special but if you want more traditional, this is not for you....

We have been staying at the Hotel Stern for many years and have always enjoyed being there. It is an old family run hotel and restaurant. It changed hands a few years ago and its new owners are less friendly and welcoming than before. The hotel is very well located 2 blocks from the Reuss River and an easy 10...

Rooms have beautiful daylight and a good street view with Fransisken church and old trees. Very short walk to Kappel Brücke and best shops and restaurants..

The Stern Luzern was easy to walk to from the train station and easy to find. Reception at the restaurant was helpful and allowed us to leave our bags until our room was ready since we arrived early. Wifi worked well and the room was clean. The bathroom was small but efficient and overall comfortable for my husband and I...

Very nice hotel particularly well located close to the old town and parking garage. The rooms are quite small but modern, clean and functional. The hotel reception is through the restaurant downstairs but the personnel was very welcoming. The breakfast room is very nice and the food is ok. Overall very happy about this short stay!

Unfortunately, I left a packet at a restaurant in a Lugano train station restaurant that contained my husband and my Swiss Rail Passes. Giselle was instrumental in contacting the restaurant and requesting a scan of our Swiss Rail passes which she pulled up on her computer at the hotel and printed them off for us. We then could use them...
