Excellent location. Clean and comfortable room. I would stay here again.

6/10 Good

Ceiling lines of "Angel" room made it difficult to negotiate without banging one's head. No shower curtain/door made for a very wet bathroom floor. Consequently, tile slippery. No A/C but fans provided; insufficient to keep one cool at night. No room service by the time we returned at about 2:30p. Very small lift for a couple traveling with multiple bags. Location very, very good. Check-in/out staff very helpful and efficient.

Worst place to be
The worst place I have ever been not worth the money we paid

2/10 Poor

This is not a hotel. It is a building run by Krone Hotel. Staff there were rude and lied about many things. Mohamed tol me I couldn't speak to the manager because he was on holiday. Another guest complained about his attitude. Keycards did not work. Arrival by car is a nightmare. Worst hotel I had stayed in. Avoid and use Pickwick or any of many nearby hotels.

8/10 Very good

Great Location and Value
I think this hotel has some beautiful rooms that might make this place a 10/10, but ours was one of the more "value" driven rooms. And it served it's purpose, had all the basics in good enough condition to have an enjoyable stay. The real highlight was staying in such a great location! Our room was right across from the clock tower, but with windows closed the chiming did not disturb our sleep at all.

The hotel is located at a really central area of old town Lucerne, very close to the Chapel. Ridge, with several restaurants in the vicinity. We took a taxi to get to the hotel from the train station, but on our way back we simply walked to the station. The property is very clean and nice. Check in and check out was really smooth. They also gave us free vouchers for city public transport, and upgraded us to the honeymoon suite, which was Huge.
