Just a short walk from the main station, the pier, the tourist office... it's the perfect place to crash when you're exploring the Luzern area. Decent rooms, good breakfast (I loved their Bircher muesli) and quite reasonable considering how central it is. As a woman staying alone, I felt perfectly safe. The Picasso museum, the town's old quarter and the Chapel Bridge and many building that are much more interesting than it are in the vicinity.
The staff wasn't that cooperative though. When I arrived, I was told that my room was not ready and would take at least two hours. I decided to leave my bag with them and spend the time sightseeing instead of sitting around the busy and claustrophobic lobby area. My bag was not put into any locker or special left luggage room but was left standing around close to the reception.
On another occasion, when I returned to the room after a long day of sightseeing, I found a strange and disgusting smell in the room. When I called housekeeping to inform them, I was told I was imagining it! When I insisted that someone come up and take a whiff, I was told to just open a window to let it out. The man who took the call was rather rude, something that I had not encountered at all, anywhere else in Switzerland. Finally, I sprayed my expensive French perfume all around the room and opened the windows, covered my nose with a perfumed handkerchief and slept with a pillow over my head to keep the yucky smell out!
Despite these glitches, I think this hotel is good VFM just for its superb location.
