“Excellent value for money, central location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2012

for the price paid, this hotel was very satisfactory.
we stopped ove for a night in luzern, and can only recommend it.
staff were friendly and helpful, rooms were nice and clean (though basic)
very close to the center (we had a car).

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2012

In the captivating and beautiful city of Lucerne, the clinically functional ambience of Etap was a depressing contradiction !! It was expensive, though booked well in advance. The room was extremely cramped and came with a fixed bunk bed above a double bed, which was rather claustrophobic. The minuscule basin inside the room was difficult to use without splashing water everywhere. Toiletries and linen provided were miserly. There was a separate WC and a shower cubicle, both extremely small. While the WC had some privacy, the tiny shower cubicle within the room had a glass door with no lock and translucent strips of screen in the name of privacy !! Quite embarrasing if travelling with friends and kids !! The only redeeming factor was that one could walk to the train and ferry stations in 15 minutes. While we remember Lucerne as the most beautiful place in our itinerary, Etap definitely was the most disappointing stay !! Will look for something with more character next time...

Etap is a budget facility (Accor) with excellent accomodations and decent breakfast. Although it is a walk for sights and groceries, it helps you get to know the shopping district to the south of the train station. I enjoyed walking each day to the lake, and caught the ferry. It is 12-15 min to the trains and ferry on foot. Luzern is a beautiful, clean city. A grocery is next door, with limited hours. No need to spend too much on food. Good choice for first time to Luzern.

This hotel was kind of what we expected- a decent budget hotel. No complaints. Bed comfortable and the room very clean. Nothing amazing here though
