    Very friendly staff, beautiful room, nice location (central, park, quiet)

  • Family with children

    We loved the Park location within a few minutes from the Lake. We also enjoyed the ambience n the room and the magnificent service. The restaurant staff was attentive and the black cod with lemon risotto spectacular. We would stay there again should we be traveling to Lucerne. Regards

    The lack of pool or at least a Spa room.

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    Friendliness of staff. Many knew our name even just shortly after arriving. Room was immaculately maintained, twice a day, and staff were totally discreet - room was always made up when we were out. Were not disturbed once by any staff member requiring access to the room. Food at the Bam Bou restaurant was simply amazing!

    Designer room seemed a bit spartan at first, but it grew on us and actually we really liked it after the first night, once we got the hang of light switches and blind controls etc. However, I would have really liked some drawer space for my clothes. Perhaps minimalism has been taken a little too far?

  • Couple
    5.8

    Location was not bad and the interiors were nice

    I don't think the hotel deserves the 5 starts rating simply because of the lack of the facilities usually available in 5 stars like pool and spa. The hotel was good but I don't think it was worth what we paid for it

  • Group of friends
    9.6

    One of those hotels that changes the prespective of the city, that makes it cool to be in Luzern. Next to the hotel, just 1 min walk in the park next door, a nice outdoor cafe. Not just a room to sleep, but lot more.

  • Family with children
    7.4

    Front desk staff is very friendly and prompt.

    Room was very dark. The design by Jean Nouvel in 30 x 10 feet strip seems modern but you do not feel energetic or positive being in there.

  • Single
    10.0

    The hotel staff are very helpful, and attend immediately to my request. The room is quite spacious. I will definitely stay in The Hotel again if I go to Luzern.

  • Single
    9.2

    The Service was excellent and they have an absolutely fabulous restaurant Bam Bou that serves fusion Asian food which was superb.

    The walls of the room I stayed in was painted black and this gave the room a very dark look though lighting was not bad it did make parts of the room very dark and hence could not see the aicon. controls.

  • Couple

    Nice hotel overall but overpriced

    Bathroom leaking :-)

  • Single

    Beautiful Design, friendly staff, excellent location. Just perfect.

  • Single
    10.0

    Exceptionally friendly staff, large and nicely furnished room, great views from windows (had a corner room), very fine asian restaurant in the basement, lively urban bar lounge, best presented breakfast i've ever seen (unfortunately i'm not a big eater in the morning), very central but quiet location: a few steps from train station and lake, but on a quiet city park.

    Everything was really to my full satisfaction! Just one hint to travellers: upon arrival, move the lower table below the desk into a far end corner of the room; I hit its sharp edges twice when standing up from desk chair, and left the hotel with a badly bruised leg ;o)

  • Older travelers
    7.0

    The concept of the hotel, the furnishings and the restaurant were all very good and its location is very central. It is very beautiful.

    The heating was a problem because the temperature could not be controlled in the rooms and it was always very hot and not comfortable for sleeping. The bed was very hard and not comfortable and there was no place in the room for two people to sit except on the bed. I expect a much greater level of comfort at this type of hotel.

  • Single

    Very good food.Perfect place to stay for romantic night.While she will try to find you in bed you can see her in the mirror....

    One women was not treated well I do not know her name but her face close to the face of China

  • Group of friends

    The Hotel was a great exoerience and the description on the website was very accurate. The staff were more than helpful and friendly and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
