We stayed at the hotel on the 19th December on route to our skiing holiday in Veysonnaz. We loved the comfortable rooms, good service, great location and the stunning views. As a serious hobbyist photographer I was extremely chuffed with being able to take the most awesome pics right from our balcony.

I will recommend this hotel to anyone!

We stayed here over Christmas and can thoroughly recommend this hotel. Good food and service from friendly staff. Ideal room with view over the river and looking towards Mount Pilatus and the lake. Hotel in pedestrianised old town, five minute walk to train terminus and lakeside boat piers. More than happy to return again in the future. Good breakfast buffet and typical Swiss efficiency.

If you're looking to be perched above the Reuss River, sitting on a balcony overlooking the 14th century Chapel Bridge - you've found your spot. The nicer rooms also provide views of Lake Lucerne and of course, the Alps.

While the hotel itself is slightly dated, the accommodations were good, especially in relation to the price. You're right in the heart of everything and walking to the train station, the boats, the bridges, the castle and so on - are all doable for any active traveler.

While there is a restaurant on premises, we only made it down there for breakfast, which provided plenty of sustenance for a busy day of exploration.

Room Tip: Ask for river/bridge view rooms and it seemed like some rooms had larger balconies than others. So, if having a drink out on the balcony is appealing, ask for one of the larger ones. If with a group, get some neighboring rooms - so your balcony neighbors are people you're with.

The location was superb! 5 mins walking distance to Main Train Station. The hotel is right in front of the Chapel Bridge. I highly recommend to book the rooms with Balcony. The views are simply relaxing!!! The size of the room was just enough. It has free WIFI, Breakfast was good. Don't look any further, book this hotel!

Room Tip: Room with Balcony

Our third time here and this time we booked a balcony. It was enclosed on both sides for privacy unlike the lower balconies. The room was just perfect. Old, creeky floors, just as the hotel is itself. We fronted the Bridge and river and never got sick of waking up to that view. The morning we left it snowed so we got some great pics before heading off on the 5 minute walk to the station. As stated the hotel is visible from the station exit. The station itself has a coop which is open from early morning til late at night around 10 if I remember and Sunday but the hours are a little less but still open all day. They have a Bachmann on each floor of the station and they sell heaps to eat and great takeaway cappuccino. In fact we had a couple of these coffees daily. 3.40 Francs each.

Room Tip: Pay the extra for a view. You won't be disappointed.
