a very belated review of the place... stayed here for 2 nights in the corner room in May 2010 which is hence, a little bigger with a window on the roof, the toilet is very small. hotel is located in the center of Luzern and is within walking distance of many places of interest. price is considered cheap for the location. I think the walls are quite thin as I can hear people walking along the corridors. The corner room has poorer WIFI reception, so you'll have to choose if you want to have a bigger room, or a better WIFI reception.

The Rooms are basic but comfortable and well designed for the space, it was nice to be in a budget hotel that had nice bright rooms with a lot of light from the windows.

The Staff are friendly and very helpful, they helped us find everything we needed in the town and beyond, we arrived early and they made sure we could get into our room early to freshen up, they also have lots of discounts available which is very handy as Switzerland is pricy!

The main thing we were pleased with was the location, cheap and bang in the centre of the action in the town as well as a stroll across a bridge to the bus, train and boat links, couldnt really ask for more!

The Wifi worked fine for us, I guess maybe if you want to go to Luzern and spend all your time online it might be a problem but that wasnt what we were there for.

The one thing I would say is a little electric heater wasnt quite enough, maybe 2 or a modernised heating system would have been better.

All in all a nice place to stay in comfort while on a short trip in the city.

That is the only positive thing that can be said. The room and bathroom were TINY. We were left outside (on very cold winter) with our luggage because we were one hour too early for check in, the cleaning lady was really rude, she just showed us to the door. The reception girl excused for that and was really kind, even returning later at night to give us back something we had left in the lobby. For Luzern, the price was really low, so there are some things that have to be price efficient, I guess!!

The Falken has a compact, efficient 4 person room which really fits 4! We put our 4 children in this room and we stayed in a room next door and all were very happy. Their rates are very reasonable and staff accommodating.

Room Tip: They only have the one room for 4 with the bunk beds, so book early!

The beds were clean and comfortable, which I guess is the most important thing. The hotel is in a good location, easy to walk to shops, restaurants, and to sight-see. However, the noise from the street was a bit intrusive and you could hear people in neighboring bathrooms. Luckily, I was anticipating this and brought along some ear buds and a Sleepy Time app and blocked the noise out and was able to get a good nights' sleep.

The wifi was free but HORRIBLE. I was only able to connect about 25% of the time, and that was spotty.

Our shower was missing part of the door, so water got all over the bathroom when it was in use.

I think they were also doing some renovations of some sort, so the hallways smelled a little like paint, but this was not noticeable in the rooms.
