“Good location, good rooms but can be very hot in summer”
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

The hotel was at a good location, less than 10mins walking distance from Lucerne train station. Hotel is new and rooms, though small, are neat and clean.
Only problem is that hotel has no AC and it was pretty hot. They provided 2 small table fans which provided some relief. As it is, not many hotels in swiss have ACs. May be it was not required a few years back but not anymore!

The hotel is near the train tracks (no noise at night though) and the station. It is rather small but the room size is good. The toilet however is way too close to the washing basin and the wall, which is very uncomfortable for tall people. This is not a big problem, it's just not convenient, that's all.

The reason i gave 4 stars i stead of 5 is because we got woken up in the morning by the staff. It was 8 am and she knocked around 5-10 times at the door quite loudly before we decided to open it. She then only wanted to know when we would like to check out. I replied 10am (the latest time to check out) and she said "ok that's good, that's until when you should do it"... I have NO idea what was the purpose of that visit but it was quite useless. I want to give 1 star but since the hotel was good except for this encounter, I will give 4.

Being one of the cheaper hotels in Lucerne, I certainly did not expect too much from it. It is generally good in every other aspects (staff, facilities, cleanliness etc.) but the lack of A/C during summer makes it way too warm for anyone to sleep comfortably.

My room was located at the top floor and was facing other apartments, hence the noise from the trains was not much of a problem and the 2 small fans in the room also produced quite some noise to mask the train noise. Ventilation / extraction fans in the room / toilet did not work during my stay, so the room stayed very warm throughout the night even with the balcony door held wide open. The air outside felt much cooler but there was no wind bringing the cool air into the room.

The bathroom was also poorly designed. There was no soap holder in the shower (but a cup holder was installed) but 2 soap holders were installed at the basin instead. The toilet was also poorly located, with very limited clearance from the wall at 3 sides of the toilet.

The staffs were friendly, everything was clean and looked new, so those were the only positive points for the stay. I would have given it 4 stars if there's working A/C.

Room Tip: Those facing the back / other apartments might be quieter

Lucerne and Switzerland in general are very expensive. This is one of the cheaper options in town so you get what you pay for. The noise from the trains is loud like others say. Rooms are very small. The wifi would work in the morning and go in and out at night - the network probably can't handle all the guests using it at night. The staff was friendly. The shower flooded the bathroom our first night there and the front desk changed our room right away. The hotel was bearable for two nights. Any longer of a stay in town and I would recommend staying somewhere else.
