Our visit to Lucerne this year included another stay in the Hotel des Alpes. This was out 3rd stay here. The hotel still doesn't disappoint. The location is its best asset. We enjoyed a river view room again with a small balcony. The floors were a little creaky but this is an old building. The bathroom is modern and clean...

Always prefer balcony with chapel lake view & i bet after opening your balcony door ((lol balcony door opening is tricky )) to view the scene you will feel that you got all your money back when you paid for hotel stay. Room & bathroom is not very spacious but decent for couples & i believe thats not what you...

The hotel is in an excellent location for visiting major attractions. It is only a 10 minutes walk from the main train station, which is ideal. It is also very easy to find. The room was small and we would have not wished to stay for a long time in this. However, it was well equipped, and had tea and...

Lovely hotel on the river/lake of Luzern with spacious balcony. Minutes away to shops, restaurants, boats, trains and buses. Highly recommend this hotel and make sure you get a room with balcony as it so enhances the Luzern experience. A great day experience- take the boat to Vitznau and walk up to the 4 person gondola that takes you to...

As someone who has traveled through Europe, I have seen my fair share of hotels,both good and bad. The Hotel Des Alpes exceeded every expectation I had and truly made this trip remarkable. The location is perfect as so accessible to everything, the staff if incredibly helpful and kind(especially Ingrid and Lorena!!) and the restaurant was the perfect way to...

We loved the location of the Hotel but were disappointed with our room. We should have paid the extra to overlook the river but to be advised by the Hotel when we were making the booking that we would be overlooking the old town thought that for the price that it would be good enough. The view of the old...

We booked this hotel based on the location & reviews on Trip Advisor. We requested a room overlooking the water. We had a very spacious room with a double balcony. The view was all spectacular. We were a little concerned that the room might be noisy due to the pedestrian area below. We found this room, located on the 5th...

Lovely hotel in a superb central location. We were on 3rd floor at the river side of the hotel - high enough to get the perfect view out across the river to Mt. Pilatus. Nice big room, with good shower and comfy bed. Substantial breakfast served downstairs. Helpful staff. Had an evening meal one night, booked a table on the...

Our room at 2nd floor is facing the chapel bridge which I understand it's going to be a bit noisy with non stop tourists. However, the 1st night was a nightmare. There was a pub next to the hotel, the drunkers were singing with a microphone/speaker and speaking loudly until midnight. There was no air conditioning in room which means...

The hotel is an old historic building with a lot of charming atmosphere, nicely located in the heart of historic Lucerne at the shore of the river Reuss, some rooms with a perfect view towards the lake, the Alps, the famous Kapellbrücke and the Jesuit Church. We've had three rooms, two towards the Reuss and two towards an quiet square....
