We reached Luzern train station almost 8pm and decided to take a cab to the hotel (though it was only 15 minute-walk from the train station). But the taxi driver took us on a longer route and it cost us CHF17.50. Upon checking with the hotel receptionist, we were told that the taxi fare should not exceed CHF10. So it is advisable to check with the taxi on the price before you hop in one. Well by the way, it was a metered taxi so would not make any much different unless you can specifically direct which route to use. The receptionist of the hotel was very helpful and welcoming. She even showed us Luzern’s map and few interesting places to visit and gave us discounted coupons for museum entrance fees. She invited us to have free flow coffee at their breakfast area (free flow from morning until 10pm, which was fantastic). The room was very nice and airy. Our room was facing the Luzern river and mountains. The bathroom was big; almost as big as the bedroom area itself. They have more selection of breakfast items as compared to few of other hotels that we stayed in central Europe during our trip. The hotel was very close to Coop and our favorite Indian restaurant (their food was amazing) and tourist attractions like the Luzern Wall. We walked to the station on our last day in Luzern, and it was an easy and pleasant walking (with big bags you have to watch out for the uneven pathway and some stairs on the way to the station).
