Very clean and friendly stuff, great view to Pilatus, good for hiking and the hotel has a funny playground for children with a true train and animals. Very close to the Pilatus Mountain and cable car, not far from Lucerne and a great view to Vierwaldstaedter Sea.

This hotel isn't located in the heart of Luzern (10 minute drive), but the location is well worth the distance. You have a beautiful view of the mountains, Luzern and the lake. It's also a starting point for many hikes. Breakfast was very good, also because it was served on the terrace with that wonderful view. We shared a bathroom/toilet...

We booked a double room with the shared bathroom/shower. Given the time of year, we were lucky and didn't have to share the bathroom with anyone (so it was nice and clean). Here are the positives and negatives of the hotel: Positives: - Beautiful view/Balcony - Free parking (good for expensive Lucerne)/Good Wi-Fi reception - Clean/Friendly staff Negatives: - Far...

A very cosy hotel with many attractions for the children (a little train, mini golf, ponys, playground etc...) just in front of the hotel. The biggest attraction is the Blaue Bahnli...100 year old little cogwheel train which you can go gratis if you are a hotel guest. The rooms are clean, warm, equipped with coffee machine with every day refilled...

The hotel, standing high above Kriens, combines very smart rooms with balconies offering beautiful views over towards the mountains and Lake Luzern, as does the restaurant and outdoor patio area. The restaurant delivered a very good, though expensive, meal. We plan to return on another occasion.

A booked for my family of four, arriving at the hotel I had the bitter surprise of having two rooms, on the same floor but separated ! So my wife slept with my five month old daughter and I slept with my ten years old son. As a hollyday trip with my family, this ruined a little bit the mood....

We had a horrible two night stay in this hostel (l would not call it a hotel). Firstly, it gives it's address as Lake of Lucerne, which is totally misleading as it is up a steep hill in a town nowhere near the lake. We arrived on a Monday at 6pm to find a deserted place...turns out reception closed at...

The room was clean, big, with balcony, massive bathroom and... Jacuzzi! The staff was helpful and friendly, a credit to the hotel. The breakfast was good too (bread, croissants, cereals, fruit, cheese, ham, eggs...) - Amazing location, quiet and relaxing, with a family of little ponies, cute! Also a few nice walks around, beautiful forest! Highly recommended ⭐️

A very good and clean hotel with breathtaking views. Inexpensive by Swiss standard. Share of bathroom facilities may pose a problem with some people. Used it many times on my way to Italy. It's good starting point for trekking, walking around Lucern.
