Everyone (2)
5 out of 5


Pros: The staff, the comfort of the beds, the cleanliness, the hotel quality, the location
Cons: there isn't a whole lot of local food options, I found it was fun to just walk to the town on the other side of the lake for Italian
Location: enjoy the scenery! its beautiful!
I had an incredible experience this past winter. The staff was incredible and accommodating. The town was so beautiful, me and my brothers just decided to hike around rather than go into Lucerne. The sauna is appreciated beyond words during the winter. 10 out of 10 would do again!

A beautiful old hotel

An outstandingly maintained old hotel. For tall people the rooms are a bit too low, but if you tall guys do not mind bending a bit, then you find find the place very plaisant. A word of caution: bathrooms are shared. The swiss restaurant provides a truly local atmosphere and the breakfast was well above average. The views of the lake a magnifique and if the day is clear you see the snowy peaks on your right.
