The hotel was in the centre of Lucerne. Indian restaurants are just 5minute walk away.
Room was very small, hardly to keep 2 luggage bags, bed was very comfortable.
Staff was good. But nothing wow about this hotel. Its just a cheap hotel suitable for a night or two.

There are plenty of hotels in Lucerne. This one doesn't have lift.. Has very tiny rooms.. Basically jail rooms.. Somehow fitted with toilet and shower unit in a corner in a box. Staff was friendly. But spend little extra to find a better option if you have come all the way to swiss.. Room doesn't have space to keep your luggage.. Staff was helpful.
Excellent location but not wor....

Location is excellent but not worth. Room was very small to accommodate 2 adults. There was no TV. Wash basin was in the room. Staff was very cooperative. Wi-fi was there but no connectivity in rooms. It was a Jail earlier and rooms were cells. It could be a good experience if you are staying for one night.

It is the most disappointing part of my entire trip. The hotel is really not advisable for couples. Rooms are very small I could not even push my suitcase inside. WiFi do not work. The towels were torn badly. Room do not even have a curtain. Overall it is really a bad choice. I would not recommend this hotel at all.
