“Wonderful stay”
Reviewed 22 May 2014

We had a wonderful stay here for 3 nights from 5th May - 8th May. We had 2 rooms (although the room numbers i can't remember).

The staff were VERY friendly and helpful. The rooms were well sized and we had a lovely view down to the Lake from our Balcony. My parents overlooked the building next door which was being renovated.The hotel is within easy walking distance to the Lake, Lion Monument, Train station and all main sights.

The breakfast had lots of choices (cold and hot) and was one of the better ones we came across during our 5 weeks of travels.

We would highly recommend this hotel to anyone staying in this beautiful part of town.

Good location Just few minutes away from Lake Lucern and the famous swiss watch galleries.
Great service! We are warmly welcomed by the staff on a cold night.They gave us unique Swiss souvenir as we checked out too.

Management needs to replace the pillows. Even folding and triple folding yields little support. Front desk was happy to provide a second pillow and they even laugh how many people complain about the pillows.

Beds in some rooms are very narrow and there are no mattress box springs – so do not expect high quality sleep.

Be aware that during warm weather the hotel does not have room air conditioning. So even a spring day where it is comfortable outside could be uncomfortable in a room that does not get air circulation. Opening the windows is the only solution, but many rooms are street side and you are then faced with the noise of the city in your room.

Breakfast is very simple with breads, yogurt and cereal and limited fruit / cold cuts.

There is no desktop power for computers. In my room, I had to sake my power cord down a hole and then get on the floor, open a cabinet and plug inside the cabinet where the TV was connected.

No wired internet, only wireless. But the wireless signal is very good and the speeds are equally good.

They have a weird key system in which you have to exchange your room key each time you leave the hotel for a smaller lock key. It’s all self-service, but a tad odd.

No in room refrigerators or ironing boards / irons. If you want to Iron they direct you to the hotel next door where you can use the iron in a small room next to the receptionist. So be prepared to be on display as you iron things.

The only plugs in room are the Type J triple prong (similar to Euro plug except that it has an offset ground). These are common in Switzerland, but not in other places. So ensure to have adapters.

There is no shampoo, instead the shower and bathroom sink have liquid dispensers. They also provide a very tiny bar of soap. In my room, the liquid dispenser had black material inside along the sides. Not sure what it was, maybe mold?

Rooms and hotel are clean and well maintained. Front desk staff is very friendly and most helpful with anything you need.

Near the hotel you will find 2 grocery stores and plenty of places to eat.

Room Tip: Ask for courtyard to avoid the street noise

I stayed in this hotel for two nights and the room was fairly clean. The hotel is located near the train station (about 12 minutes). The staff were helpful and friendly and gave us tips on what attractions we could go to. Breakfast was decent but fresh juices would have been good. The T.V size in the room was small and it had a bad connection with only one or two English channels.

I stayed in this hotel on the 31st March 2014 for 4 nights. Location of hotel could not be better, however, as the hotel is on one of the busiest roads in Lucerne it can be very noisy until about 0100hrs and from 0500hrs (with the windows closed). The rooms were of a reasonable size and the rooms were cleaned every day and a fresh set of towels provided. The breakfast as expected was continental with various breads, cheese, cold meats, jams, eggs etc which was quite enjoyable. I did not eat in the Lapin (Rabbit) restaurant as I wanted to see as much of Lucerne and Basel as i could in the 4 days (restaurant busy at night), including a visit to Baselworld which is a must for anyone interested in watches and jewellery. I would say that this hotel would be ideal as a base for anyone intending to visit the surrounding towns and villages (Engelberg a must) in Lucerne. Finally, I would suggest that the Hotel De La Paix could benefit from air conditioning in the rooms (summer would be uncomfortable and noisy if you require to leave the windows open at night) and a small fridge would also be a bonus. Overall I found the staff to be very friendly and helpful during my short stay in Switzerland. Many thanks to all the staff of the De La Paix on our recent visit.

Room Tip: If you want a good nights sleep I would suggest a room that is not on the road, however, the rooms o...

thank you for your review. We are happy you have over all enjoyed your stay in our Hotel and our City of Lucerene. We are sorry for the street noise. That is the otherside of the very very central location. We do not have air condition. In our over 100 year old Building it is very difficult to change the infrastructure setting. In the summer time we provide at least a Fan in every room to make our clients confortable and a free welcome Drink and Ice Tea will be always available in the lobby. We hope to be able to welcome you again here in Lucerne.
