Hotel in Lucerne

I am looking for a centrally located hotel in Lucerne that also offers great views of the lake/mountains. I would even really like to have a little sitting balcony of the room (I just need a double room though). Here's the problem...It can't break the bank. I would like to keep it under $200 a night. Any ideas? I was thinking about the Hotel Seeburg possibly...

The hotel rates in Lucerne fluctuates greatly with season. Each one may have a slightly different definition of season. You have to poke each one individually. Try to use each hotel´s own website for booking. E.g. if you can´t get Seeburg, try its smaller neighbor, Maria.

Hi angelsweetness,

One thing you could do is head to one of the towns along the lake instead of Luzern. I once stayed in Weggis for four days and loved its quiet atmosphere. Hotels along the lake will be far less expensive. Try both Weggis and Vitznau



You can commute to Luzern either by ferry or by bus/train combination.

Have fun!

Hi angelsweetness,

You can look after 3 star + hotels at this page hotels.luzern.com/luzern/english/search.htm… if it is for this winter. In summer the prices will be higher.

The "Balm" ( http://www.balm.ch/index.php?lang=E ) got a great review these days. There is a bus stop in front of it and you are in Lucernes city center within 10 minutes by bus no. 23 which brings you directly to the railway station.

An other option is the "Des Alpes" ( a 3* Hotel) in walking distance from the railway station in the old town of Lucerne ( www.desalpes-luzern.ch/index.cfm?Page=H05 ). Some rooms have balconies.

A cheaper option, but no balconies would be the Pickwick ( hotelpickwick.ch/english/10_room_rates.php ) next to the "Des Alpes". Look at hotelpickwick.ch/english/10_room_rates.php

You will find more nice hotels at www.luzern.org

I hope this helps

We stayed in the Pickwick two years ago and our room did have a small balcony overlooking the river and lake - not all rooms have balconies though but I requested one when booking.

It's within very easy walking distance from the railway station. The room was OK but nothing special - it's appeal to us was it's reasonable price and it's location.
