We stayed at this charming hotel in Lucerne, which is situated directly at the river, for three nights in January 2014. The building is grandiose, dating back to the middle ages, apparently it already served as a hotel in 1200 by monks. Of course, the hotel has since been completely renovated, with great attention to details, modernized, yet while keeping the charm of its history. The rooms are well designed, with modern furniture and extremely comfortable beds, and with a balcony overlooking Lucerne with the river in the foreground, the Kapell bridge in the middle, and medieval town in the background, absolutely stunning, like in a picture book. The service is impeccable, including valet parking services, and a generous breakfast: fresh, stylish, healthy. Located next to the Weinmarkt square, we could access a number of excellent restaurants nearby, and explore the wonderful old town of Lucerne, just by walking out the door.
