5/5 Excellent

Traveled with family
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The hotel is located at a really central area of old town Lucerne, very close to the Chapel. Ridge, with several restaurants in the vicinity. We took a taxi to get to the hotel from the train station, but on our way back we simply walked to the station. The property is very clean and nice. Check in and check out was really smooth. They also gave us free vouchers for city public transport, and upgraded us to the honeymoon suite, which was Huge.

Location was great. The room was dark. With dust and cobwebs. We had the pirate room yet it was a bit too rustic for us.
