I loved everything about this Hotel. It's location was an ideal place to stay in Lucerne, very close to the train station for travelers and also close to plenty of restaurants and bars. The view from the rooms facing the river cannot be beat.

Hotel des Alpes is a five minute walk from the train station. We were in Luzern for the Fasnacht celebration so the town was just crazy, and Hotel des Alpes was right in the middle of the celebration, so it was perfect. The room was simple, bed and pillows were very comfortable, and bathroom was nice. The view from the...

The restaurant in Hotel des Alpes offered us excellent food during our two day stay. Staff, including Sarah Schnell, are worthy of special mention. Friendly service with a smile and a very reasonable rate for the fixed Menu. We would really like to return to try the a la carte menu. The view over the River Reuss is very pretty....

The hotel was right on the lake opposite the Kappelbrucke. A great location. No air conditioning the only handicap as it was still hot in September. Swiss hotels without aircon are going to need to review this as the last two summers have been very hot. The views of the lake from the balcony were great. The room was large...

We were not on the look out for anything other than a pleasant walk along the Reuss River in Lucerne when we noticed a sign that read "Smooth Jazz at 5pm on Thursday". What a delightful find it was. For 15 Swiss Francs one could have a glass of wine and as much to eat from the hors d'oeuvres buffet...

I spent 6 nights at Hotel Des Alpes and it was most enjoyable. The room on the 5th floor facing Pilatus and overlooking the Chapel Bridge, was ample, neat and warm, given that it was quite cold in Lucerne at the time. Breakfast was satisfactory. Staff were friendly. Reception staff were awesome and always ready to assist with enquiries. The...

Staying not in the first time in this friendly hotel. Perfect location with magnificent view. Friendly service with immediate attention. Here come the X factors. Julia in reception was extremely friendly and attentive. The second pleasant surprise was a great tasty food for dinner/lunch with a perfect service. We will come again and again to this lovely hotel

We spent a weekend in this location booking directly through the reservation service; perfect choice! It's location is perfectly located in a walk distance from the central station and in the heart of the old town of Lucerne. Room was clean and perfectly functional with a quite large bathroom with a modern shower. A little balcony allow us to face...

We arrived in Lucerne by train and it was only a five minute walk to the hotel. It's in the Old Town close to lots of sites, shops and restaurants. The hotel is on the lakefront, although our room was at the back overlooking the road. The staff were all lovely and fluent in English which made our stay very...

“Ask for a river view if you can. The City view will basically give you a view of another building's wall.”
