We stayed here for just a night as a couple. It is right in the center of the city and very close to the Reuss river. The breakfast spread was nice and the staff were friendly. The sleep quality is great given the good comfortable beds

This hotel was exactly what I expected: a mediocre 3-star (4 stars is a joke) in a very good location in Luzern. I used Choice Hotel reward points to pay for my stay, saving myself a very hefty hotel tab in Luzern (Luzern is a particularly expensive city in an expensive country). Rooms are small (typical of Europe) and reasonably... More

Since I am a positive person, let me say that the best part about this place is the location and also that it is located in one of the most beautiful cities of the world, Lucerne. You cant call this place a 4 star hotel, actually it is a lodge with big rooms! We stayed in this lodge for 3... More

After reading reviews about this hotel and being concerned - especially about cleanliness, I contacted our tour company before departure to say I was worried that we had two nights here. I was told they had mixed reviews but generally it is ok. We found it quiet although there must have been quite a lot of guests. Our family had... More

After reading some of the poor reviews of this hotel, obviously we were very sceptical about where we were staying!!! However, I want to put the records straight!!! This small hotel (ok not exactly 4 star but probably rates 3 star) is in a very central location, near to the railway station and all local amenities and restaurants!! Our room... More

I've just returned from a Swiss holiday which was based at The Central. What on earth are previous corresondents on about? What do they expect? The hotel was clean, manageress and staff were friendly, breakfast good (ok, not a good old British fry up but, hey, we're on mainland Europe), rooms and bathrooms a good size and clean.

We had booked a double room with double bed. The room was so small that the bed was pushed against the wall so had to climb over the other person to get into and out of bed.

Although this hotel proudly displays 4 stars - don't expect this to be reflected in either the rooms or service. It's the worst hotel I've stayed in for many years and that's saying something. Take a look at my reviews of other hotels - I've been criticised in the past by others that I've been too fullsome in my praise... More
