8/10 Very good

Nice Hotel
The hotel is in a great location walking distance from the train station, old town, the lake, Lion Monument and the transportation museum. The breakfast is nice with great breads, assortment of meats, cheeses and fruit, juice and a great coffee machine. It’s a nice hotel with some quirks that we noticed after staying there several days. There was no exhaust fan in the bathroom which made the entire room feel damp to the point that the towels (thin ones) did not dry out between uses and our clothes felt damp. We changed out the towels frequently because of this. Not the best eco friendly solution. There is no heat in the rooms until after October 1 and opening the windows to get some fresh air didn’t help due to it being rainy and chilly the week we were there. There was a floor fan but that didn’t help. They use keys to lock and unlock the door even on the inside of the room. We ended up leaving the key in the door which seemed the safest thing to do in case of an emergency or fire and we forgot where we put the key. All in all the hotel is very nice. In hindsight we just stayed too long (over 6 days) and the room started to feel uncomfortable due to no heater for those chilly mornings and the dampness from the bathroom that permeated the room.

Was not particularly fond of the room size. It was narrow in width and long in length. Bed was kind of small for a single. Nice breakfast room.

Great location. 5 min walk to train station and 5-10 min walk to main Lucerne attractions. I came on Sunday to Monday and most things were closed. Monday was their holiday I didn’t realize but Zurich was only a 50 min train ride. Hotel has a very small elevator, which can take a while with people and theirs luggage. I mostly took the stairs. Got a great work out lol. Breakfast was basic. And the room was quite hot, no air condition just a fan. It’s a nice place if your are looking for basic needs (comfort, close to transit/attractions and safety area).

Our stay at the hotel was great. The breakfast in the morning was fantastic with several different options to choose from. The location couldn't be beaten as it was only a block from the train station and a short walk to Old Town Luzern. Highly recommend
