                  7.0

                  The location is plum opposite Luzern rail station.Good Breakfast

                  Double room does not have a double bed. Two single beds joined together, uncomfortable for a couple, they should either provide a king or a queen bed.

                • Family with children
                  10.0

                  Fantastic and a great hotel to stay. Very helpful staff and very good breakfast and close to station.

                • Older travelers
                  8.8

                  Convenient location.

                  No air conditioning which was understood up front. The street noise was very loud with windows open but the hotel has insulated windows and blinds that shut out all street noise. The ony problem is that the room would become stuffy with the windows closed.

                • Group of friends
                  9.6

                  Perfect location..

                  luckily wasnt that warm, the time when i came.. there is no aircond inside the standard room that i got, tho it was upgraded..

                • Family with children

                  The spacious rooms and bathrooms.

                  The space, design and look of Reception area.

                  bathroom

                  hotel started from 3rd floor, 1st 3 floors were some office n bars.....room was bit small.

                • Single
                  8.8

                  Location is perfect. Desk staff were friendly, helfpful, and efficient. Breakfast was good.

                  Room was small and basic, not a place to spend a lot of time but a perfect base for touring Lucerne, especially if you are traveling by train.

                • Family with children
                  8.8

                  Good staff and nice breakfast. The atmosphere is also nice.

                  No free WiFi or wired LAN in the room even 4 stars hotel, although we could use it in the lobby.

                • Family with children
                  8.8

                  Perfect location. Close to train station and all main points in the city. I got a large room as I was travelling with my 2 kids. Mr. Ivan Sucic from the front desk provided us a fantastic service and support. Thanks.

                  Conveniently located close to the train station with spacious and clean rooms. Friendly staff and great view over the water.

                  There was a bar/lounche on the top floor open until 3.30 and it made the room a bit noicy.

                  Perfect location, friednly staff, Starbucks coffee shop on a ground floor, a really perfect Lounge bar above, among the best I ever observed during my European trips.

                  Havent found any air conditioning device that should by notion be present in such a hotel rated by four stars. Instead, there was a ventilator that's might be some solution for a winter season but not one for summer...
