Take a room with a view of the river! It is worth it given the unbeatable perspective on the Chapel Bridge. The hotel has all the trademarks of a high quality Swisss hotel, comfortable beds, convenient bathroom, good wifi (different passwords for different devices though). Check-in / checkout efficient. Friendly and helpful staff. Good breakfast, which is included.

I recently stayed at Des Alpes for a couple of days with my wife and I must say that the location of the hotel did impress me at while booking and during our stay. However, the room that we were given was pretty shady and towards the end of the hotel with no view of lake. It seemed claustrophobic and...

We stayed just one night. The hotel has a great location. We had a noisy room in which we could hear the neighbours comung and going during the night, cleanliness could be improved, old style furniture. Good for a very short stay

Hotel is located within 2 blocks of the train station, directly on the lake and historic chapel bridge. We had a top floor balcony, so views of the lake and mountains were beautiful. The hotel is located on a pedestrian street, so we never noticed any noise at all. The room was larger than many European hotels. The room and...

We were told at 9:55 that the buffet would be cleared. One would expect a bit more tolerance. Being on time in this respect is just bloody rude! Also, for the premium price, the buffet was meagre. I would not recommend this hotel.

This hotel is in a perfect position, on the edge of the water by the Chapel Bridge. We walked from the train station which was one of the reasons for our choice. As a family of 4 we had 2 rooms, a double and a twin. The bathrooms were clean and modern, although the one in the twin room was...

I stayed at Hotel Des Alpes over Christmas and found it to be a lovely older property. The location was right next to the Chapel Bridge, two blocks from the train station and the entrance to the hotel is one block into the old town pedestrian area. Tour boats leave from a dock next to the train station. Round trip...

This hotel is along the river and has a nice view of the chapel bridge. Some of the rooms have a balcony. Breakfast was good with smoked salmon, eggs, cold cuts, cereals and bread. It took us about 5-10 minutes to get to the hotel from Luzern station. The rooms are quite small though.

For the second successive Christmas we stayed at this very pleasant hotel, this year extending our stay by an extra week. Good food, especially the breakfast buffet. A very good Christmas Day evening meal and not a turkey in sight! Rooms warm, bright and with a balcony and glorious view of the river, lake and Chapel Bridge. Good maid service...
