Good location friendly staff
The hotel is in a good location and is walking distance to the area attractions. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was very clean and serviceable
Celia, us1 night family trip
Hotel Rothaus, Lucerne
We stayed here for one night during a three week vacation in August of this year and was the most disappointing property of our entire trip. While the location is good, near the Old Town area, the hotel is badly in need of repair and a good deep cleaning. We were originally scheduled to stay for two nights but checked out after just one. The photos on this website are not representative in our opinion. To the credit of the hotel, the daytime clerk was extremely customer oriented and helpful in allowing us to shorten our stay without penalty, which was much appreciated. Unfortunately, we would avoid this property in the future.

Fairly good
Relatively small size in room space, not really convenient for the whole family with kids along. But no doubt about its good location that you can cover most of places of interest within Luzern.

Super-minimalist experience
Location is the main benefit this hotel has going for it. It's pretty austere, even for a European "boutique" hotel. The staff was nice and helpful, but that only takes you so far. The bed was hard, furnishings were sparse, and the shower was so small it was borderline dangerous. I've stayed in budget hotels with more amenities and in military lodging with more charm. Picture a college dorm and you might be close. Okay if you're not going to spend much time in the room. DEFINITELY not suitable for families.

Like hotel Rothaus
This hotel is very close to city center, train station and lake. There are a lot of stores and restaurants around. Lucerne is a very beautiful city. The included breakfast is very good. There are many choices. The room is bigger compare other hotels in Switzerland at the same price range. Front desk staffs are very nice and helpful. If the room has air condition, it'll be much nicer for summer stay. Will stay again if come back to Lucerne again.
