    excellent location, just next to train station, convinient, twin room is great, spacious, but the single room is tiny .

    an ancient building so as the interior design and facilities, but clean.

    Very good

    Top position directly opposite train station. Helpful staff

    Single room very small. Today good hotels should have a 'bigger than narrow single bed, even for single guests rather than children. External appearance of hotel very poor and 'downmarket' - main entrance between McDonalds and Starbucks who share the 'lobby area' with the hotel.

    The staff were helpful and friendly, makes you feel at home. They have city information in hand. Excellent location just opposite Luzern main station and Tourist Info Center. All the main attraction points in the city are within walking distance. Room is comfortable. Breakfast has varieties.

    No free WIFI.

    Location; Friendliness of staff; Cleanliness

    Limited follow-through when we reported a bad odor in the bathroom. After repeated calls and a visit to the front desk, we were finally moved to a different room

    Very good

    Excellent location. Next to train station and lake and 2 minutes walk from famous bridge. There's even a Starbucks located in the lobby! :-) Good range in breakfast buffet.

    Room decoration and facilities very outdated. Not easy to park. Poor value for money. I expected at least reasonable hygiene products from a 4* hotel but all they had was the all-in-one 'shampoo/soap/shower gel' squeezy bottle! Disappointing.

    Guest rating

    The staff was friendly and helpful.

    The hotel was very noisy due to it's location. In addition, much of the hotel space has been rented or leased to other businesses. It was like staying in a crowded and noisy office building

    Great

    Perfect location, very close to train station. Nice bath tube. Very sympathetic staff, specially at the front desk.

    Could hear water being flushed in other rooms, and other guests knocking doors and speaking loudly early in the morning (maybe they thought they were in a Disney excursion). Anyway, didn't hear sound from outside the hotel, what was good. Old small TV placed close to the feet of the bed, so it was almost impossible to watch it without getting a neck pain.

    Perfect

    The location of the hotel couldn't have been better, right across from the station. Breakfast was good and the staff extremely helpful. The views from the room were an added bonus.
