We really enjoy staying at Hotel des Alpes. Just sit on the balcony of our room and enjoy the view of The Chapel Bridge, the river with it's swans, part of the lake, and mountains surrounding Lucerne. We could even see as far as the building at Mt Pilatus from our balcony. Staying in des Alpes makes us aware that...

Location,service, proximity to the railway station & friendly staff all make this a great place to stay when in Lucern. We had room 124 with a large balcony overlooking the famous Chapel Bridge and the beautifully lit harbour with all the Christmas lights. Breakfast was great with a lovely atmosphere and outlook, especially on Saturday with all the market stalls...

Just a 10 minute walk to the station will get you to the hotel. The Location is bang on the lake of Lucerne which makes all the possible locations very close by. Be it an early morning walk or a late night stroll, the location is great. The rooms are not very big but are hygienic. The breakfast clearly can...

The location of hotel is perfect. It's near train station, old city of Lucerne, boat station for get a tour, shopping centers. But I didn't like my room. It was the smallest hotel room I have ever accommodated. The facilities in the room was like a two star hotels.

We were totally pleased with our stay at Hotel des Alpes. First off, it is a quick, convenient walk from the train station. Our non-balcony room offered a lovely view of the Chapel Bridge and beyond. It was not large (watch those corners of the bed frame), but certainly adequate and we appreciated the in-room coffee maker. The desk person...

This hotel has to be in the best location in Lucern. We booked a room with a large balcony, it was on the first floor and looked over the Chapel Bridge, no need to use the lift except to access with luggage. We sat on our balcony had a drink and watched the world go by. The room was quite...
