This wasn't our first choice, but in Lucerne during some event meant a lot of hotels were fully booked. We're glad we ended up here.
The Hermitage is a little out of town, but that brings some advantages: it is quiet, parking was easy and not expensive, and the hotel is right on a beautiful stretch of the lake. The bus stop is at the door, and it is a ten minute or so ride into town. The staff sell you tickets and are very helpful.
The decor is minimalist - our preference. It is very modern and smoke-free. Windows slide right open for fabulous lake views. Rooms are large, clean and well-appointed. The apples in bowls in the halls are a nice touch, and breakfast is great.More
