The hotel itself is quiet, we hardly every heard other people enter/leave their rooms. The staff is exceptionally friendly and helpful; there is cake and tea available until late at... More

Although the hotel location is walkable to train station and harbour, it is about 15 mins walk, however, if you have luggage (even they are small), it is inconvenient because you will walk to a bridge or some stairs. If you travel by taxi, it is CHF 20 per trip one way. It seems near but they have to go... More

I stayed at this hotel for four nights. The location is about a 10 minute walk (or five minute bus ride if you have luggage) from the train station and easy walking distance from the old town, restaurants, shops, etc. The rooms were recently renovated and mine had a beautiful view of the river and bridges. The staff was friendly... More

You need to stay here to get the real swiss feeling, by the lake lucerne, what a beauty! This gentleman, Christoph at the front desk is extremely polite, patient, helpful and very knowledgeable. Talking to him made things really for us! Booked in the name of Radha Bagri, we stayed here on 15 Sept for two nights. Thank you for... More

Nice small hotel at the end of town. Easy to get to by foot from the rail station. The breakfast is good and the staff is helpful. The beds are comfortable, the room a little bit too hot but all together a good nights rest.

Situated right by the river with great mountain views from the balcony, big rooms, comfy bed, a warm friendly welcome by the owners, a yummy breakfast that includes mouthwatering crusty and buttery croisants and an easy walk to the railway station and boat piers made the Tourist Hotel a great choice for our 4 days in Lucerne.

Our experience couldn't have been better. The hotel's location was very good. Clean and good size room with a great view of the river. A very good European style breakfast was included. The hotel has WiFi. A washer and dryer is available for guests to use. Margarit was extremely helpful with suggestions for restaurants and points of interest to visit.... More
