Location,service, proximity to the railway station & friendly staff all make this a great place to stay when in Lucern. We had room 124 with a large balcony overlooking the famous Chapel Bridge and the beautifully lit harbour with all the Christmas lights. Breakfast was great with a lovely atmosphere and outlook, especially on Saturday with all the market stalls...

Yes, they have a good, well-priced dining room, and an excellent included breakfast. Please note, that as in many smaller, European hotels, the bathroom is a little small. Other than that, all my room...

Just a 10 minute walk to the station will get you to the hotel. The Location is bang on the lake of Lucerne which makes all the possible locations very close by. Be it an early morning walk or a late night stroll, the location is great. The rooms are not very big but are hygienic. The breakfast clearly can...

The location of hotel is perfect. It's near train station, old city of Lucerne, boat station for get a tour, shopping centers. But I didn't like my room. It was the smallest hotel room I have ever accommodated. The facilities in the room was like a two star hotels.

We were totally pleased with our stay at Hotel des Alpes. First off, it is a quick, convenient walk from the train station. Our non-balcony room offered a lovely view of the Chapel Bridge and beyond. It was not large (watch those corners of the bed frame), but certainly adequate and we appreciated the in-room coffee maker. The desk person...

This hotel has to be in the best location in Lucern. We booked a room with a large balcony, it was on the first floor and looked over the Chapel Bridge, no need to use the lift except to access with luggage. We sat on our balcony had a drink and watched the world go by. The room was quite...

We stayed here during our trip to Switzerland and were very pleased with the location, right in the heart of Lucerne on the river. The hotel is a little quirky with its restaurant being on the -1 floor and reception on floor 0. Our room was a decent size despite only have the bed and a desk in the room,...

“Ask for a river view if you can. The City view will basically give you a view of another building's wall.”
