          10.0

          The hotel staff was the best i have ever experienced, they were always smiling and trying to make your stay more comfortable. location was as you can get, 2 mins walk to schwizerhof hotel where all the riverside restaurants and bars and boat rides are, 1 min to hauptbahnof and a park in front of the hotel where you can play chess with your son or walk with your wife. Bars all round the park.

        • Older travelers
          10.0

          Wow! This is a wonderful boutique hotel. Well trained staff that really appear to care!We loved the cutting edge design and the total feel of the property.

          We loved everything except the shower. The designer/architect has gone for style over substance. The showers are not functional and are ridiculous in a property of this quality!Also, be warned if you are in Lucerne on a Sunday everything is closed. We spent 90 minutes walking trying to find a shop withoutb success. Then we were advised there is a secret society...at the train station all the shops are open all day and you can get everything you need!

          The rooms are awesome and the fusion restaurant is superb.

          The maid needs to put ice in the room each morning after cleaning and when she does the turndown at night.

        • Single
          9.2

          As usual, top level front desk staff, unbelievably professional and friendly. As usual, too, I stayed for dinner at the hotel's own Asian/fusion restaurant downstairs. Lovely food & service again (but please do leave guests their choice of table if the place is nearly empty - and will stay so for the rest of the evening, due to low season ;o) ).

          A slight loss of excellency at the bar/lounge. Unwinding at the end of the work day with some loungey background music and a drink or two is difficult while the headwaiter (?) is holding a loud and endless monologue speech to one guest sitting at the bar (instead of being attentive to potential new orders by other guests).

          contemporary design, comfort, helpful staff, location...

        • Group of friends

          The design of hotel style.

          The bath room makes water really easy to overflow on the floor.

          9.6

          excellent attentive staff , quick to do our room in the morning ,they bring fresh fruit each morning, also bucket of ice in afternoon and a turn down service at night.

        • Family with children

          Location and clean

          Dark room, small wardrobe, bathroom door without lock and some room ceilling has sexual photo which is not suitable for kids

        • Couple
          9.6

          The room was absolutely beautiful! I really enjoyed the "black out" curtains; it was very east to get a restful sleep in a very dark room. The front desk staff were extremely helpful and friendly. They provided us with maps of Luzern and traveling tips.

          The shower did not close properly and water leaked onto the floor. We mentioned this to the staff on the last day of our stay and they apologized; they were going to fix it right away. The Hotel was absolutely fabulous! I would recommend it to friends.

        • Older travelers
          9.6

          The ambiance. Staff were very friendly and helpful. They were professional and caring - great combination!

        • Single
          7.4

          The staff were very nice, location is good. The room is big and comfortable. The hotel was very friendly to write the welcome card. Very nice restaurant downstairs.

          There is a club downstairs, and sometimes you can hear the noisy.

        • Group of friends
          10.0

          The hotel staff were friendly and considerate, and the hotel itself boasted an innovative design and a highly sophisticated look. The room was well-furnished and had a distinctive color scheme that added to its individuality. The hotel's location was very convenient - just a five minute walk from the train station with easy accessibility to the city.

          Breakfast was unfortunately not included in the price of an overnight stay.
