My mom and I stayed at Hotel Pickwick in early June 2007. We booked it because we were on a budget and trying to stay as close to a 100 dollars a night as possible. We were treated very well by the staff from the moment we checked in at the bar downstairs. We had a nice, clean room with two twin beds positioned head to toe. We had our own bathroom as well. The view from our room overlooking Lucerne's famous wooden bridge was priceless! The hotel is right in the heart of Lucerne...a close walk to everything! The train station is a short walk across the beautiful wooden bridge. Our first night we couldn't believe how popular the bar downstairs was! It is THE happening place in Lucerne! We were worried about the noise level when we wanted to sleep the first night since we had a room right over the bar. It was very loud, but the bar only stays open until 12:30a.m., so it was temporary. The second and third night we never had a problem with the noise because we met so many Americans during our stay that we were all at the bar together having a great time! We met so many wonderful people by staying at Hotel Pickwick that it was like a home away from home. The free internet was the first we'd seen in all of Europe. I will definitely stay there again as soon as I can! The only thing I would recommend if you want to sleep before midnight is to get a room on a high floor on the opposite side of the bar. Have a great time!
