“Hotel Stern Luzern”
Reviewed 17 September 2013

The rooms were noisy, small and hot but I didn't expect the rooms to be much bigger given they were reasonably priced. The staff were friendly and breakfast was wonderful. The location was perfect too. Overall had a wonderful time there but certainly would have preferred to have aircon given how hot it got.

Although I made reservations long time in ahead asking for 2 quiet rooms and not on the top floor, we were given the 2 noisiest and hottest rooms. When I complained about this I got the "studied" answer, that you have never quiet rooms in a town. The rooms were very small with a paper thin curtain, so that the street-lites shone in your face during the night. The bathroom was poorly equipped and very small as well. However I payed in advance we moved to another hotel after a sleepless night.

Room Tip: Don't book this hotel, because even when you ask for specific rooms, they won't give them to...

I stayed at the Stern Luzern for two nights in August 2013. The room was large, modern, and very clean. It is centrally located, less than 10 minute walk from train station and just across the river from the old town pedestrian area.

But by far the best reason to stay here is the food! Even if you don't choose to stay here then Ii highly recommend eating here. I've been traveling for over one month now and the Hotel Stern Luzern was by far the best food I've had so far. Both lunch and dinner were superb. Although expensive, as it seems everything is in Switzerland, I found this hotel to be well worth the cost.

Room Tip: Superb restaurant!

I love the hotel's location with the price we paid. Breakfast is included with many choices not like in Zurich's hotel only gives you bread and coffee any thing more you have to pay. The people work for the hotel speak English and very friendly.

There were 3 of us staying at the Hotel Stern Luzern so they booked us in the room at the top of the hotel I think it was more spacious) however there were only 2 beds. This wasn't a big deal because we are all girls/family. There is no air conditioning and the room was incredibly hot and there were a lot of bugs so it was difficult to keep the windows open. There was a standing fan which we used all day and night.

There is an elevator but it only goes to the 4th floor (we were on the 5th) so we had to lug our suitcases up the stairs as there is no one to help with bags.

The bathroom was huge, probably the best part of the room. Two sinks and spacious, although the shower was small (no tub) and difficult to have a shower without getting everything in the bathroom wet.

The location was great. Easy walk from the train station and the old village, lake, shopping, restaurants etc.

Free breakfast is good, there is a lot of choice for your standard free breakfast and it was nice because the food in Luzern is soooooo expensive.

Be aware that there is a tourist tax in Luzern so you will have to pay additional tax when you check in.... it was around $60 for us.

Don't expect great service, there's never anyone really around with the exception of the front desk which is also the bar top of the restaurant. Overall it was a good value for Luzern which is a really expensive city.

The hotel is surprisingly new, clean & neat. Toilet is a good size but the water flow from the shower head is a little low. (I am on 4th floor). Room is not air-conditioned (which is a norm in Switzerland) but they do provide table fan in the event if its a warm summer. Which is exactly what I needed. Location is opposite Lucerne Old Town. About a good 15 min walk from the Main Train Station. Free Wi-Fi available, however the connectivity is rather unstable, but good enough for me. A small lift good for 1 person 1 luggage only. Overall, its a good stay and will recommend to friends.

Room Tip: Bed & Pillow are soft type.

Good, location in the city, a little hard to find and lift only good for 1 person, overall very comfortable, no locked place to leave bags after check out until we left the city, although we did leave them in a spot where they said they would keep an eye on them and everything was Ok
