nice hotel close to railway

5 out of 5
by from Melbourne, Australia
Posted Jan 3, 2017
Pros: Clean neat, modern, good restaurant.
Cons: Doonas were a bit hot; had to open window and turn heating off to cope.
Location: Went to Mt Rigi; a must-see; was cloudy in valley but up above the clouds the views were fantastic. Cog railway a great experience.
Handy location hear railway station and not a far walk from main city areas; good selection of nearby restaurants.

Great experience here! Hotel is 5" walk from train station so out of the tourist crush but easy walking to Old Town and Caple Bridge. Room was spacious and immaculate. Bed very comfortable. Bathroom nice sized. Hotel staff,especially Selina, delightful and super helpful - gave us great restaurant recommendations, not touristy places but nice local restaurants.

Further from Lucerne main activity

Posted Aug 5, 2016
Hotel was further from main Lucerne activities. Restaurant is closed for remodeling, rooms are noisy regarding other guests in hallway. There is only 1 iron for guests and one has to go to 7th floor to use it. Free breakfast is excellent.

Good morning Thank you for sharing your opinion on expedia and for the compliment regarding the breakfast! We are located 7 minutes from the train station and 12 minutes from the old town. We are sorry that you were bothered by the r renovation and other guests. We have only one iron because the demand for it is not high, but we will discuss this issue in our team. Thank you for the input! We hope you could enjoy your stay and hope to see you soon again! Sincerely, Your CASCADA Team

Boutiquish Type Hotel By Train Station

3 out of 5
Posted Jul 29, 2016
Pros: Location
Cons: Tie the NY Times to the table so you have to read it there. There's only one copy but many American guests.
Location: Quick walk to just about everything. There's a nice park and beach just a 10 minute walk away called Ufschotti. Cross the footbridge and bear left.
This is a simple, boutiquish small lobby, small rooms, sort of hotel. But it's right near the train station and lake. This location was a positive for me since I stayed several days, had a Tell Pass and was each day on a different escapade catching trains, buses, and ferries. If you like to watch TV, there are several English language channels. Also the hotel receives a small parcel of newspapers each AM. But if you want the English language NY Times, you will need to get downstairs to the breakfast room early before it's swiped away by another tourist. I was a little annoyed that when I would turn down the cold air in the room, shut it off for the night, and open the window, that in the morning cleanup, housekeeping would turn it back on full force and when I returned late in the day, the room was too cold for me. The hotel restaurant is currently closed for renovations. Meanwhile there is a free buffet breakfast on the first floor. But if you're an early riser, you might have to wait 30 minutes or so for the hot trays to appear. You might also find a free re-stockable mini bar in your room. But without alcohol. Don't expect much and this place is OK.

Dear Mike Thank you for sharing your opinion on TripAdvisor. We are happy about the compliment regarding our location. We will discuss the issue "newspaper" in our team - maybe we are going to subscribe one more, thank you for the input! Most of our guests like air conditioning - because our housekeeping team worries about its guests they turn it on full force, so they have an agreeable temperature when they come back. We are really sorry that you did not appreciate it. In such cases, please do not hesitate to contact our housekeeping team if you have any needs. In most hotels you have to pay for all drinks from the minibar - this also includes soft drinks and mineral water. If you like to order alcoholic drinks into your minibar, you can book them by our staff or in advance via mypage site on which you can personalize your entire stay. Although, we hope you turned back with a few good memories about our hotel and Lucerne. Sincerely, Your CASCADA Team

Nice hotel close to the train station. Clean, comfortable and quiet. Got early check-in as we reached early. There were options that were provided to select before hand through website like bathrobes, slippers, night light, woolen blankets, type of drinks in mini bar. But we couldn't change any of the options the next day such as the drinks. So be sure what you select. It rained when we were there - complementary umbrellas helped. Breakfast was varied and good. Few things that bothered me - wish the restaurant was open (it was closed for renovation), half the room had sloping ceiling and I kept hurting my head. Just couldn't get used to it as I thought I should have. Also, I notice in many places that even if we have triple room, housekeeping will only leave supplies for 2.

Great hotel within walking distance to all sites

Great hotel within walking distance to all sites around Lucerne. Lake, Chapel Bridge, Other bridges, old town, the train station. Parking is tough around here and there is not much of a lobby if you want to hang out with your family. Rooms were great and the bedding was super comfy!

Pros: Everything
Cons: Not a lot
Location: As per my notes in the first section
Our stay at the Cascade hotel was wonderful. We found the staff very, very helpful, especially the ones on the reception desk. We went to them with very many enquiries and they were very helpful with the planning of our excursions and pointing us in the right direction for things to do. Nothing was ever too much for them and I would rate them very highly. When we got there, we had a room without a balcony. My husband thought that it would be nice to have a balcony to sit in as we had a great view of Mount Pilatus opposite. The receptionist was very obliging and had arranged to have us moved within 10 minutes. The housekeeping service was daily and there were tea and coffee making facilities in the room. The train station is 7 minutes walk from the station, Lake Lucerne is 10 minute walk and you can take the boat from there to many fascinating destinations around Lucerne. The shops/supermarkets are within 10 minute walk. We were staying there on a bed and breakfast basis and found the breakfast to be well catered for, including champagne at breakfast time! There is complimentary access to the fitness centre opposite the hotel complete with a sauna. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Cascada and would gladly stay there again.
