Our family stayed here in mid July. Hotel is within few minutes walking distance to old town and 15 minutes walk from railway station. Staff are friendly. We booked two triple rooms but at last they kindly allocated one triple room and one quadruple room. Rooms seem to be renovated, they are very basic, clean but not spacious. No kettle...

I stayed at a single room with shared bathroom on the first floor. The room was small but not tiny and had a dormitory bed, a table and a sink and was clean. It didn't resemble the pictures in the site - looks like a youth hostel and not like an hotel. My window were overlooking a small backyard used...

I traveled alone and didn't really want to stay with strangers in a hostel, so my teacher who often takes study groups to Europe recommended me this hotel. My room was on the 5th floor, which is cheaper and of course not as good as those downstairs. It is clean and very simple: just a bed and a coffee table...

We were very surprised that this affordable hotel ( for Lucern ) , was so wonderful ! Our room overlooked the river and the rapids lulled us to sleep at night. We could view Mt. Pilatus ( worth the trip up there ), and the breakfast was included, which was delicious and plentiful. Jim, the Scotsman at the desk ,...

Balcony view is great. Hotel is a short walking distance to the "old town" but in a quiet area. Staff was great. The plus.....laundry facility on site!

Tourist Hotel was a surprising find after running through a number of family sized hotels in Lucerne. As we were a family of 5 with a baby, the options were limited (apart from being available the 3 days we were staying). Having arrived after an arduous, almost 20 hours since we left HK, the room was indeed welcoming. There was...

Lucerne was by far the most difficult place on our two week trip to find a reasonably priced hotel. The Hotel Tourist was that place. We arrived at the train station at about 11:00 and took the long walk to the Tourist. There may have been a better way to get there, but we did not do it. You ought...

We wanted to be close as possible to the river and town and the Tourist Hotel filled both. A warm Glaswegian accent welcomed us after a 10 minute walk from rail station and as we were staying for 4 days we had booked the s/c Garden Studio at rear of hotel and we couldnt have been happier with the choice....

We started our stay here with a welcoming and helpful receptionist, and a large suite made up of 5 rooms! But as we stayed longer, my impression started to change. The parquet floor was not done properly, and every step on the floor produced loud squeaky sound. Many times, I waked up my wife early in the morning as I...
