Positive Reviews

Ideal position in Lucerne

With regards to location, guests say the hotel cannot be beat. Placed in the heart of Lucerne's Old Town, the property is a short walk from restaurants, shops, the main railway station, and many of the central attractions the city has to offer.

Impeccable service from staff

Travellers spotlight the staff members as being one of the best reasons to stay at the hotel. With a welcoming and cordial attitude, the personnel are also said to be really professional when it comes to providing service.

Modern rooms at a great standard

On the whole, the hotel's rooms generate excellent feedback from guests. Well-sized, contemporary in style, and equipped with high-quality amenities, the rooms are also applauded for being kept sparkly clean and fresh. In addition, visitors mention that it is well worth booking a room that offers stunning city views.

Negative Reviews

No air conditioning

In one certain area, the rooms are found to be wanting. They reportedly do not have air conditioning. As a result, it is mentioned that the rooms can get overly hot during the warmer months.

Wi-Fi with room for improvement

Guests are disappointed by the quality of the hotel's Wi-Fi service. While the speed is considered lacking to an extent, the Wi-Fi's range is the main concern. Guests note that it simply doesn't cover the entire building.

Extra fees harm value offered

When judging the overall value for money offered by the hotel, travellers can be quite critical. This aspect is reportedly harmed by extras that are not inclusive with staying, such as breakfast or the valet parking service, both of which are seen as somewhat expensive.
