Hotel Pension Rosli
Ranked #57 of 66 Hotels in Lucerne
Reviewed 22 October 2008

Stayed here for two nights, wish I would've paid more for a nicer place. The previous reviews convinced me to book a room, but I was greatly disappointed. The bed was horrible, lumpy mattress, stained sheets, and I had to keep the bathroom door closed because it smelled like stagnant water. While the location is great - close to everything! - it wasn't worth the outdated, dirty room. The service at the main hotel (friendly staff, free internet) was good, even though it was very smoky in the lobby and internet area.

This little pension is clean and in a great central location,but set back from the noise. It was pricey but I guess that's what you get for staying in Lucerne. We didn't bother with breakfast as at 20 chf each, thought it a bit expensive. The beds were comfy and there was a tv, hairdryer and mini bar/fridge which were handy. We were only here 2 nights, 1 day so it was quite adequate. One word of warning - don't bother with the bar at the end of the street, by the fountain. It's expensive due to the fact that ladies are conducting their business at night from there! It amused us and surprised us as the hotel is in a good area but it may shock some!

I spent one night here during a multi-city trip to Europe, and am so glad I did. Lucerne is such a beautiful little town, and this little inn is tucked right in the middle of it. It's not the most glamorous place to stay; some of the furniture in our room felt like hand-me-downs from other hotels or people's homes. Conversely, the bathrooms are very crisp and modern, like walking into an Ikea showroom. I had no problems with the staff, and was satisfied with the breakfast (an above-average continental breakfast). Overall, the Hotel Pension Rosli is quiet, clean, and a much better value than most other places in Lucerne, so if you're traveling on a budget, but want more privacy than a hostel offers, this may be your spot.

This is a hotel pension not a hotel so obviously the
standards are differnet. It is located in a relatively busy alleyway
in lucern about 300 meters from the train station. There are
a number of shops and restaurants close by with a nice view
of the water within 2-3 minutes walking distance.

Service was lackluster - we waited nearly 15-20 minutes
before a receptionist came despite ringing the bells
and trying constantly to get his attention. Their attitude
was similar to many small places in southern italy - not very
rushed or prompt.

The hotel room we stayed was clean with 2 twin beds, private shower. The TV did have some english-speaking channels, there
was a ceiling fan but the temps in switzerland at the time averaged
close to 35C so without air con (which is common in many places in europe - switzerland particularly since it doesn't get that hot usually) the night was miserable. If we opened up the windows we'd have to deal with the oustide noise which is quite noisy up until 1-2AM as well as possible mosquitoes.

Bottom line: it's a pension, it's not cheap either, if you had other choices pay a bit more and you'll get a better deal.

When we arrived at the Hotel Rosli, the front desk clerk (which was polite to us) told us that they had upgraded us to stay at the main hotel. The room was small but adequate and comfortable. The room was right beside the small elevator but the noise was not a problem. Breakfast was not included so we went to one of the bakeries nearby. The hotel is much easier to find if you approach it from the river.
