Very Good8.0
Everything was good except the beds. The beds was like you sleep over a playwood, next day you have back ache. But the staff was friendly, the restaurant food was excellent and the place very nice.

Hostel and Hotel, you pick
This hotel has two parts, there is the hostel part and then there is the hotel. We booked it without realizing that we were booking the hostel part, which is private rooms with shared bathroom facilities. We had a 7 month old infant with us so this wasn't going to work. I spoke to the front desk and they were GREAT!!! We were able to change rooms to the hotel part, which had a fridge which was needed to store my milk for my son. The hotel rooms were much better than the hostel room, great beds, a tv, fridge/mini bar and private bathroom. There was also a nice atmosphere about the place, there were tons of medieval armour on the walls. The hotel is a bit out of town, but sits on a beautiful lake, which given the right weather would be fabulous. The associated restaurant was a bit of a sticker shock, F80 for two people, and nothing extravagant, my risotto was under cooked. By the way the wifi is a challenge with American phone carriers, talk to the front desk.

V. Old hotel away from Lucerne
Very old hotel, close to Lake Lucerne, booked the hotel for lake views and previous reviews about easy bus ride from Lucerne. There is no direct bus ride instead you take a train from Lucerne. Round trip ticket with half-fare card is approx nine Swiss Fr., for a family of 3/4 this does not save any money staying here, save time and stay in Lucerne city center. The town (Merlischaken)has nothing to do and everything is closed before 6 pm. The hotel provides very basic amenities, does not provide in-room coffee which was a big hassle as nothing opens up early in the town and only place to get coffee is either hotel restaurant or a nearby snack-bar which opens at 9 am, both being expensive. Rooms are very old and dated, v. low ceiling, felt claustrophobic. Bathroom was extremely small and foul smelling, with stand-in shower that only allows you to stand still, hardly any movement of arms. Floors seemed like tilting in one direction (because v. old hotel). No view of the lake, instead you get a view of the road or adjoining chalets. If you like being alone in town and old chalets, this might be the place for you. Hotel Restaurant has very limited menu after certain times, very expensive and the folks there are rude which is what we found at most restaurants in the Lucerne area. Hotel provided free shuttle service to the uphill train station after checking out which was nice since we had big bags. However, we will not be staying at this hotel again.
