Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This was absolutely the perfect place for us to explore Lucerne. We walked to the beautiful Christmas market and covered bridge in the snow. That didn’t hurt the experience. We had breakfast included every morning and what a spread! Everything fresh with a staff that went above and beyond. Our room was comfortable and clean. The funniest part of our story is that we searched for a cute bar to have a beverage and walked till we returned to our hotel with the fireplace blazing and twinkling white lights and ended up right back home. What a treat!

I had a great, three-day stay Hotel Anker (Rm 303.). The suite was spacious and comfortable. The breakfast buffet was excellent, with hot and cold items. Everything was very fresh! I had an excellent dinner there as well. The location was convenient for restaurants, shopping, and sightseeing. There was a lot of traffic noise during the day if the windows were open but it was quiet at night.

Beautiful hotel! Smartly renovated combining the old traditional building with fun interior with warm colours and a playful mood. Quirky but enjoyable. It was very clean, and the mattress and pillows one of the most comfortable i have ever seen. Lovely decor in the room and the breakfast, lounge area. The breakfast was amazing in variety and quality, even with honey dripping from a bee hive. And a huge fireplace where you could sit and drink your coffee. The stuff very helpful and polite and kept our luggage when we needed to. 8-10 minutes on foot from the train station and the river and safe area since we were two females traveling. All in all it was a great choice and will stay again if ever in the area.

We booked this hotel based on Tripadvisor reviews and we weren’t disappointed!! Centrally situated within easy reach of the train station, ferry terminal and old town. We were in 510, quirky modern decor, beautifully decorated bedroom and bathroom and a rear balcony. Breakfast was superb, so much choice and all very fresh. Staff were excellent too! Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this hotel!

Great hotel in a good location. Fun design. Ample breakfast. Friendly staff. We walked from the train station and it was fine. The streets weren't crowded. The room was a little small, but it was fine and we loved our balcony. Check out the free Photo Booth in the basement.

I read the review of this boutique hotel and found another good find for other travellers. We stayed only a night but when we arrived we got an upgrade from standard to a junior suite. What a surprise! The bedroom was spacious and clean, coffee making facility and we had a good view overlooking the city and a view of mount pilatus. The restaurant was themed and buffet breakfast was excellent with good variety. Overall highly recommended.

Chose this place after reading reviews online but what a pleasant surprise! Its actually such a chic and pretty hotel! Staff were really friendly, hotel manager Kay (O-kay) was really helpful and funny, had a chat with him and he really makes us feel so welcomed. The room is very well appointed, nice colours, they even let you borrow a trendy haversack when you go out for your trip. Breakfast was amazing! The best bacon I ever had, croissant was really fluffy and light, goes very well with the generous spread of good cheese. The ambience at the restaurant is simply beautiful...at night many locals come and have a nice meal and unwind with friends. Location is superb, just a 5 mins walk from Lucerne main station. Highly recommended!

Nice, modern hotel in a great location. Helpful, friendly staff. Good bar area for drinks. Nice breakfast selection. The room was small but adequate for 2 people for 2 nights. Easy straight walk to the train station. I would stay again.

Es un hotel fuera de lo común, tiene una decoración bastante singular realmente linda, es uno de esos sitios que se debe VISITAR, ESTA MUY BIEN UBICADO, BASTANTE CERCA DE EL CENTRO, el servicio es excelente, las habitaciones muy buenas, yo llegue un poco preocupada por que hay gente que ha hecho unos comentarios malos de el hotel, no entiendo por que realmente no hay queja. Ademas tiene un restaurante excelente, con comida espectacular, un muy buen sitio para comer carne. Es muy acogedor y amable con sus clientes. It is an unusual hotel, it has a very unique and really nice decoration, it is one of those places that you must VISIT, the hotel is very well located, QUITE CLOSE TO THE CENTER, the service is excellent, the rooms are very good, I arrived a little worried that there are people who have made some bad comments about the hotel, I do not understand why there is really no complaint. It also has an excellent restaurant, with spectacular food, a very good place to eat meat. It is a place that makes you feel welcome they are very kind to their customers.

very friendly, innovative and well designed hotel. The service staff is very professional and well trained (e.g., Marina). We felt welcome and received more than just the expected attention. I recommend the hotel for a weekend trip to Lucerne.
