Rooms are very clean and the entire staff has been friendly and helpful.The rooms are typical Swiss small, but very cute with all the expected amenities - minibar, safe, robes, flat screen TV, etc. The bed was incredibly comfortable. Would definitely stay again.

I stayed here for two nights in February 2015 in a single room. The hotel was a short walk from the station and easy to find. The staff, from my arrival to the time I left were polite and helpful, offering to take my suitcase to my room, asking if I needed anything. The waitress at breakfast was very friendly...

Great staff and accommodations. My husband had business's here and we were here for pleasure Just off the Main Street. Very quiet with very helpful and friendly staff.

It is located in a perfect neighborhood, so you will be in a walk distance of everything you have to see in Lucerne old town. The staff were amazing and the breakfast quite good. The room was comfortable, but the beds a bit softer than I'm used to. It is certainly a nice choice to stay in Lucerne!

I always try to find family run hotels and not chains. This hotel has a fantastic location just a block from the lake and about three blocks from the Lion Monument. Quiet street - wonderful church bells ringing in the time. Quirky art work lining the walls --- our room had a baptismal font in it! Lovely staff - Julia...

Very convenient position just one block back from the lake and the room rates are that much less as a result. Excellent hotel with nice rooms and quirky artwork. Staff very helpful and very professional. Breakfast good and the dinner we had was excellent. We were in a roof room with lots of stairs to climb but spacious. Limited toiletries...
