Stayed in October 2014 for 5 nights while vacationing in Lucerne. Was looking for a reasonably priced hotel with free wifi and breakfast and the location and views led us to choose this hotel. We were not disappointed. Check in was easy, we arrived in the morning and the hotel held our bags until we returned in the afternoon. When...

Hotel des Alpes was a good choice for us. It was just a 5 minute walk from the train station. We were with two other couples, one of which had a room overlooking the Chapel Bridge. It was spectacular! Our room overlooked the street at the front of the hotel and was small, but average for a room in Europe....

We were given rooms 123 and 124 and were happily surprised to find decent size rooms with great balconies set right on the river and at the Chapel Bridge. The location and views could not have been better. I would suggest ear plugs although only on a Saturday night was it so so loud. That ended around 1 AM. The...

We stayed here for three nights as a couple with my elderly mother. We booked a double room with city view for us and a single room with river view for her. We didn't intend to spend a lot of time in our hotel room so only paid extra for one room with a river view. The view was very...

We stayed at this hotel for four nights and loved it. Our room had a small balcony overlooking the water with gorgeous flowers. Train station and access to the ferries is just across the street. Restaurants lined the street below us and we could hear the roaming muscians playing. Location and staff were excellent!

This hotel has a great location for visiting the older parts of Luzern. It is within walking distance of the bahnhoff, making arrival and departure by train very easy. It also is close to the docks, if you want to take a cruise on the lake (and you should!). The famous wooden bridge and cathedral are in sight, there are...

Excellent hotel, with amazing room overlooking the bridge. Right in the heart of the old town perfect to see the sights and you don't need a car as ferries, bus and trains are within 2 mins walk. We loved our stay, staff were very friendly, accommodating we had a wonderful dinner at the hotel on the balcony overlooking the bridge....

We enjoyed our stay at the Hotel des Alpes in the "heart" of Luzern, Switzerland. We checked in early and they were great about holding our bags until the room was ready. We enjoyed a fabulous dinner at the hotel restaurant and the breakfast was really good too. Great location with easy access to the train and the town.

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