Hotel Thorenberg
Ranked #5 of 15 Lucerne B&B and Inns
Reviewed 26 May 2013

There was a problem with our booking. The hotel made a mistake and because they were full we were left with one less room than we needed. However the management apologised and sorted out the problem - they put one of our party in a room at another nearby hotel and picked up the bill for that room. It was all handled very well so we left happy.

The pros: The bathroom shower was amazing. It was huge and had a nice large waterfall type shower head. The hotel offered a nice breakfast and it also had a restaurant and we could get drinks and take them back to the room. The beds were comfortable.

The cons: Location was very inconvenient. It wasn't in the city of Lucerne, we had to walk about 10 minutes to a train stop and catch a train into the city about 8 minutes away. The bathroom door was a sliding glass door which meant privacy was lacking in the room. The room was very humid, like walking into a swamp and if you opened the window, a lot of bugs and mosquitos came in. My husband had multiple mosquito bites. We had to ask for a fan. There was the constant smell of cigarette smoke outside our door.

Great location though away from Lucerne city but very well connected by bus and train. Nice property with good rooms and great service. We had difficulty finding the place but the owners were very nice and kind to pick us up from the bus stop. Breakfast had a decent spread with eggs, breads, cheese, fruits and yoghurt.

Room Tip: We had a room which opened up to a open patch of land where horses were grazing, it was just breath...

My husband and I were on a road trip a few weeks ago and we decided to spend one of the nights in Switzerland. We stayed here as we wanted to be close to Lucerne, it was about 20mins drive away (motorbike). It is a very modern hotel, lovely big room, huge shower and very bright as we had a corner room which was all glass. Bed quite comfy, pillows not so much. We had dinner at the hotel, very good food, a little bit on the pricey side being Switzerland...but excellent service and nice decor.
At night it was a bit noisy as our room was right on the road but not so bad that it kept us up at night. The only thing missing from the room was a telephone and minibar, which are 2 things most hotels have nowadays. There was also a lack of electrical points, only 1 in fact so it was an inconvenience as we needed to charge our mobiles and gps etc..
For a 1 night stay it was great, will definitely be back if we will be passing through Switzerland again.

Stayed here as it is cheaper than staying somewhere in Lucerne.
Just 1 train stop away from Lucerne which makes it pretty convenient for us.
Quite a walk from the train station. A little difficult when lugging mu luggage with me from train station to hotel. Have to cross a few streets.
Room was very clean but basic. Room has electronic blinds.
Breakfast was good with a reasonably wide spread.

Our room was simply fantastic. The suite with Jacuzzi under the roof. Room was clean and quiet. Breakfast was a normal switzerland breakfast. Maybe a little expensive for the region. A good place for couple.

this hotel is a family operation. son working front desk, father in the kitchen, and mother everywhere to take care of the rare(if ever) problem. the rooms were sparsely furnished but very clean with plenty of towels, very comfortable bed, and a flat screen television. the hotel is a nice five minute walk from the train station where the train gets you to the Lucerne train station in a quick 9 minutes. the hotel also has nice restaurant with a variety of dishes on main floor. overall this was a great experience. p.s. if you happen to be there on one of the few times that it's actually hot in you might want to get a fan(i did) as there is no air conditioner.
