We stayed at this hotel for four nights and loved it. Our room had a small balcony overlooking the water with gorgeous flowers. Train station and access to the ferries is just across the street. Restaurants lined the street below us and we could hear the roaming muscians playing. Location and staff were excellent!

This hotel has a great location for visiting the older parts of Luzern. It is within walking distance of the bahnhoff, making arrival and departure by train very easy. It also is close to the docks, if you want to take a cruise on the lake (and you should!). The famous wooden bridge and cathedral are in sight, there are...

Excellent hotel, with amazing room overlooking the bridge. Right in the heart of the old town perfect to see the sights and you don't need a car as ferries, bus and trains are within 2 mins walk. We loved our stay, staff were very friendly, accommodating we had a wonderful dinner at the hotel on the balcony overlooking the bridge....

We enjoyed our stay at the Hotel des Alpes in the "heart" of Luzern, Switzerland. We checked in early and they were great about holding our bags until the room was ready. We enjoyed a fabulous dinner at the hotel restaurant and the breakfast was really good too. Great location with easy access to the train and the town.

My husband and I, both seniors, were traveling with our Swiss Saver Passes on all kinds of public transportation for our two-week trip through Switzerland. We knew we wanted to stay near the train station and Hotel des Alpes seemed to be the perfect choice---and it was! When making the reservation for a river-view room I also requested a balcony...

Stayed here with a friend on a trip through Switzerland. We had a Triple River View room with a balcony. The balcony turned out to be big enough for two people if BOTH people were about half the size of the average human being. The room itself was college dorm like and there was a day they didn't make up...

A few minutes walk from the station, in the altstadt overlooking the Reuss river and the kapelbrucke. A perfect position, ideal for watching the passers by. A small but cut room, clean and well furnished. A lovely breakfast and lunch, but a disappointing dinner. Lovely staff. Hotel clean and well cared for. Don't hesitate.

We satyed for 3 nights. We had a room over looking the river and Chapel Bridge. The room and hotel is very clean and modern. The breakfast was very good. Worth the extra for river view. With the window open a little noisey. But close the window and no noise.

Des Alpes is very handy to train station - about an 8 minute walk. Step out of train station, look across the river to the left and you will see Hotel des Alpes in writing at top of Hotel. We easily walked to the hotel with our 50+ pound roller bags and back packs. While the hotel is handy to...

We arrived in Lucerne on the train. Rolled our luggage across the bridge to the hotel (probably about 5-10 minute walk). Difficult to roll over the cobblestones, but we made it! Very helpful staff. The room was okay. Beds were comfortable. No air conditioning; fan provided. Our room overlooked the square which was noisy, but when the windows were closed...

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