We stayed in the Egyptian Room. The room was very spacious and had a nice big TV. The downside of the room was that the WIFI didn't reach it (top floor), so if we wanted a connection we had to hang out in the stairwell. It was also a bit frustrating after a trek with luggage to realize that we...

I just was a second time within 2 years in this not so known small Hotel in Lucerne. The rooms are big, some of them have even a huge Sprudelbath in the room. The decoration ist unique. The breakfast in the nearby partner-Hotel excellent. You get the value for your monney!

We stayed in the hotel for a couple of days. It's very near to the train station (10 mins by walk). The check in and breakfast are at different hotels, which close by Magic. For anyone who is going first time, write to the hotel in advance asking for the directions to the hotel, location of the check-in hotel, which...

We used this as our base after finishing up 4 years at our rental apartment, chosen for location and price. Aptly enough, we were allotted Swiss chalet which may not be as exotic as some of the others but we were well pleased with the roominess and how quiet it was, and I enjoyed the company of the themed swiss...

Lion Heart suite, that sounds good, and it is. Not luxury but clean and big room. a bath tub in the room and a separate bathroom with tub too. Right in centertown, close to the lake and the station. Good price.

The hotel has maybe 15 rooms and is centrally located in Lucerne. Each room is a themed room i.e., our was the Angel room and our friends had the Swiss Chalet room. Each was decorated accordingly. The main issue we had with our room was the lack of a shower. We had a tub with hand held shower. The only...

We stayed three nights in mid-September at the Hotel Magic. Checking in at the Best Western Krone was no problem, but keep in mind that if you are arriving by car you CAN drive in the pedestrian zone to get to the Krone to drop off your luggage. The staff at the Krone will then park your car. As others...

Location: it situated right in the middle of the old town across from the old town hall. It is in prime location to both the old town and the new town. It is about a 15-20min walk (with luggage) from the train station. It is literally on the doorstep to Chapel Bridge and Lake Lucerne. Wifi: poor/no connectivity in the...

I was on my honeymoon and stayed in this hotel for 2 nights (25 & 26th August). It is very convenient from Lucerne train station (3 min walking). Hotel has a very unique system of operating. The guest has to first go to Best Western hotel which is in the next lane and do the check-inn formalities. They give you...
