Took my son to Lucerne, which is my favorite city in all Europe. Booked the des Alps based on other reviews and was not disappointed! What a great, safe location just across the river from the train station about a 10-15 minute walk. Also great that it's right across from the chapel bridge. Even if you don't get a room...

We decided to spoil ourselves and lash out for two nights in the beautiful Hotel des Alpes. We booked a room with a balcony looking over the river and boy I am glad we spent the extra dollars. The view was exceptional. The staff were great. The room was everything we needed, fairly spacious and good bathroom. Breakfast downstairs on...

My boyfriend and I stayed in Lucerne @ The Hotel Des Alpes in April of 2017. We were very happy here. It is very centrally located, 5 minute walk to the train station, boats and across from the old bridge, close to shopping and great restaurants. The rooms are clean and in great condition albeit a little tight. The breakfast...

This year I spent only night but is was worth doing. My room was fine and they have a good breakfast. The hotel is in the Old Town and faces the river. The hotel is only a 10 minute walk to the train station. Besides the hotel there is a restaurant. Enjoy!

Superb location ! Its in the middle of all activity. Walkable from the station and lovely view of the Lucerne Bridge. Book in advance to get better deals. Its worth paying little higher to get the lake view room.

Fantastic hotel at a great location. Very friendly staff, great breakfast. I'd love to stay again one day. If there is a drawback it is parking. No parking available nearby. Nevertheless, public transport is in near proximity.

Excellent hotel in the middle of Old Town and a short walk from the Train Station. Value for money is significant with great staff and good breakfast. Room is basic but nice but you need to have a balcony to truly enjoy this hotel-one of the best views in Lucerne and well worth the extra money. Do yourself a favor....

I loved everything about this Hotel. It's location was an ideal place to stay in Lucerne, very close to the train station for travelers and also close to plenty of restaurants and bars. The view from the rooms facing the river cannot be beat.

“Ask for a river view if you can. The City view will basically give you a view of another building's wall.”
