Hotel Falken - Luzern
Ranked #61 of 67 Hotels in Lucerne
Reviewed 23 May 2014 via mobile

Was there for four nights along with my husband and daughter. The location was very central, only 10 minute walk to the train station. Mcdonalds and migros (super market) were 2 minutes walk. Room was comfy and neat. Facilities were basic, so we took along our travel kettle. Travel adapters are available from reception at small refundable price. Highly recommended.

Stayed: May 2014, travelled with family

This is the first time we stayed at the Hotel Falken Lucerne - we loved it. The room was very nice with comfy beds, clean, and nicely decorated. Our stay was truly beautiful because of the pleasant staff and a dining room that would have a big variety of food. The breakfast is the most amazing. Thank you for making our Switzerland stay a beautiful memory. I would really recommend the hotel..

Room Tip: All rooms are good.

I very much enjoyed my stay in Hotel Falken. The location is in the Old Town of Luzern, which is the best place to be in the city, it is a good value for money and the staff is very friendly and ready to help you at any time. I would recommend it to everyone!

We stayed in this hotel for 3 days on a recent trip to Lucerne. The hotel is in walking distance from the train station .The location is near to the lake and the shopping area and the famous chappel bridge . The staff at the reception is very helpful . The rooms are very small with double deck bed . There is very little space around the bed for luggage. If you have more luggage it leave very less room to move. The bathroom is very cramped . But all this pain get compensated by a great location . The swiss tourism office is very close and the easy access to train, boat and bus station makes this hotel a paradise for a tight tight visit to lucerne

Room Tip: If you want to take train and boat trips in and around lucene , this hotel is simply GR8

Our double bed was fine although you had to be careful if you were near the window the bed was to close to the table. The bathroom was way to small, you had to squeeze in and try to shut the door to use the toilet. The bathrooms need updated, our shower was on the nasty side and the hairdryer only stayed on for 2 min at a time.

We stayed at the Hotel Falken for 2 nights on a recent trip to Switzerland. The hotel is in a fantastic spot, right in the heart of the old town which makes it great for exploring Lucerne. It is also very close to the train station, the lake, the river, the famous Lion of Lucerne and lots of great restaurants and cafes. We had read about the issues with bed bugs from previous reviewers and so emailed the hotel seeking assurance that the issue had been dealt with; they promptly replied assuring us they had and we certainly had no issues with bed bugs while we there (yay!). The room we had was small but functional, with comfortable beds and a clean (but TINY) bathroom (if you have large suitcases with you the room size could be an issue as there would be no where to put a large suitcase, but we have had backpacks so it was fine). We found the reception staff to be very friendly, helpful and accommodating, and they all spoke perfect English which made it easy to ask questions and get advice on where to go, etc. There is free wifi in the rooms which was great the whole time we were there. The only real issue we had is that, being right in the heart of town, it was a bit noisy at night and there was no air conditioner in the room so we had to sleep with the window open for ventilation and temperature,but with all the noise during the night, we did not sleep very well. This would not be an issue if you are travelling outside of summer though I imagine when it would be cool enough at night to sleep with the window closed. The hotel IS expensive, but compared to other hotels in Lucerne it is actually very well priced - this is an expensive town, especially in peak tourist season. Also, be aware that this is a very small, privately run hotel (they only have 15 rooms), so you cannot expect the level or type of services you would get from a big hotel. We found Hotel Falken small all round and basic, but comfortable, well located and perfectly functional.
