Booked a room for two adults, an 8 year old and 1 1/2 year old, upon arrival we were upgraded to a room with a balcony which was beautiful. We were offered a play pen for our toddler to sleep free of charge, a fan free of charge was available upon request (got stuffy in the room at night). There...

Stayed here for 4 nights, had a corner room looking out toward the river. The traffic can be a bit loud at times, but with windows closed it was ok. The hotel itself is quiet, we hardly every heard other people enter/leave their rooms. The staff is exceptionally friendly and helpful; there is cake and tea available until late at...

Although the hotel location is walkable to train station and harbour, it is about 15 mins walk, however, if you have luggage (even they are small), it is inconvenient because you will walk to a bridge or some stairs. If you travel by taxi, it is CHF 20 per trip one way. It seems near but they have to go...

I stayed at this hotel for four nights. The location is about a 10 minute walk (or five minute bus ride if you have luggage) from the train station and easy walking distance from the old town, restaurants, shops, etc. The rooms were recently renovated and mine had a beautiful view of the river and bridges. The staff was friendly...

Nice small hotel at the end of town. Easy to get to by foot from the rail station. The breakfast is good and the staff is helpful. The beds are comfortable, the room a little bit too hot but all together a good nights rest.

Situated right by the river with great mountain views from the balcony, big rooms, comfy bed, a warm friendly welcome by the owners, a yummy breakfast that includes mouthwatering crusty and buttery croisants and an easy walk to the railway station and boat piers made the Tourist Hotel a great choice for our 4 days in Lucerne.

Our experience couldn't have been better. The hotel's location was very good. Clean and good size room with a great view of the river. A very good European style breakfast was included. The hotel has WiFi. A washer and dryer is available for guests to use. Margarit was extremely helpful with suggestions for restaurants and points of interest to visit....

We visited Lucerne for 4 days before our riverboat cruise. Margaret from the front desk provided us with awesome tips for our visit. The hotel was in the perfect location, easy to walk to from the train station even with luggage. Rooms were clean, great water pressure in the shower and the breakfast was very good.
