So it's my last night at the Hotel Rothaus. I've been coming here for over 3 years in Lucerne. It's been a great place to stay. Apart from being told off for spilling red wine all over the bed. Twice. Or was it three times. Thanks all of you for making my long stay here so comfortable. Having my toiletry...

Hotel location is 5 minutes walk to lake Lucerne, Chapel bridge & city center. Main train station is about 10 minutes walk. Rooms are very noisy especially during weekends (u feel like you r literally in the street in the lower floors room). Breakfast is average however they serve good espresso. Staff are not friendly except for Steffi she is...

A fine hotel which is not at the center of th tourist area but not too far from it either. The breakfast is included which is good. You can see closely the room of the locals from the window but ok for a hotel to staya couple of nights for sightseeing.

This hotel was located near the famous bridges off the Main Street. There were plenty of restaurants, bakeries and great shopping around. We loved the beds, but we really loved the location. The train station was conveniently located too.

The hotel is situated on walking distance of the concerthall and of the centre of the city. The rooms have been partly renovated, partly freshened. Breakfast is included in the price. Price/quality is more than OK!!!

I write here as a coach driver. Staff were unfriendly and unprofessional from the minute we arrived until the minute we left. We had a meal, which was ok. Some passengers decided to purchase some wine with their dinner. Extortionate isn't the word. But, due to the staff's unprofessional form, nobody was billed for it although they were asked. Rooms...

We stayed here for 3 nights in July.The only reason we picked this hotel was its location.You can walk from the railway station to the hotel and Kapelbrucke is also walking distance.The hotel is on a quieter road with superstores nearby.We had taken a suite,it was clean ,big enough with minimal decor.It really needs some decoration.There was a balcony.Initially there...

I had the disadvantage of having stayed in Luzern previously in a nicer hotel, so I will try to forget this as I review the Rothaus. First off, the restaurant is a real gem. Weary from travel when I checked in, I defaulted to dine in the hotel restaurant, and had delicious schnitzel and rosti with white asparagus. The service...
