          The proximity to the main restaurant/shopping area in such a beautiful city.

          No parking.

        • Couple
          9.2

          Room was compact and well-designed, clean and light-filled. Building is from the 15th century, but the interiors were fresh and modern. Bath was compact yet functional. Location was great, in the middle of the old town Luzern, close (but not too close to get noise from) the train station, and very close to the river.

          In-town locations like this one will invariably be a little noisy, from people on the street, as well as the hourly gong from the town clock. Light sleepers should be a little wary.

          Hotel was quite close to Lucerne rail station. Melanie at the reception was very pleasant to talk to and she answered and helped with all queries. Breakfast was adequate. Thanks for the Nespresso coffee machine in the room .Room could have been bigger for 3 persons , we found it a bit inadequate to store our luggage . was a bit noisy with another Chinese restaurant downstairs.

          I checked in this hotel over the weekend for just one night. Its location is just ok to be located, not sure if it would make a difference if you didn't go to Tourist office at the train station first, just 8 minutes walk from Luzern train station, easy to find, small hotel, tiny room which is clean and comfortable, friendly hotel staff, reasonable minimal service.My room rate was slightly expensive for what I got, not sure if it was because room rate for weekend.

          Front desk area is hiding located on -1 floor, no obvious sign to show you the way, you got to ask and keep asking the restaurant worker facing the small street, I would be more happy if my room is air conditioned and there will a kettle for making hot water for my tea , tooth brush and shampoo should be available, e tc My room was on the 3rd floor and the only window is just less than 2 meters away from the opposite building wall (under construction work). The bed mattress and pillow is a bit soft for me. It would be my second chice hotel honestly in that area without a chance to campare with the others.

        • Single
          6.2

          The location of the hotel is excellent, although there are many other hotels with this quality in Luzern.

          The wireless internet of the hotel simply does not work. The signal intensity is so weak that, most of the times, we can not connect.If you need to use the internet to work, this is not the right hotel to do it.

        • Family with children
          8.8

          Pretty rooms, decent size. I loved having nespresso coffee machine in the room! Good choice of food for breakfast. Perfect location in the right heart of the city.

          Price - I found the hotel quite expensive.

        • Older travelers
          8.2

          The room we had was very comfortable. It also had a ceiling fan that was necessary, since the room was over the restaurant, the noise level was very high with the windows open, therefore, the windows needed to be closed before 11:30pm or midnight. The mini bar and coffee machine were great items for tired tourists or business travelor. The welcome fruit was a treat after a long day of travel.

          The noice level for rooms from 200 and 100 level prevented sleep with the windows open. The ceiling fan helped compensate. For international travelers, maybe a quieter or level 300 or 400 would have been quieter in the late evening.

        • Family with children
          8.8

          Staffs are very helpful and friendly. Location is superb, room is modern and nice, especially the bathroom. Wireless connection is great.

          The only thing that I don't like is the fact that we cannot open the window at all because of the noise from drunk people on the street, even at 2-3am in the morning. We stayed there during the city marathon and it was worse. The hotel doen't have air-con, so on a warm night, you have to decide whether to get use to the heat or the noise.

        • Couple
          7.4

          Great location in the city area (just two streets away from a very good swiss restaurant, Steadkeller Restaurant), a very good breakfast spread, espresso machine with 3 sachet in the room, complete with safe and mini bar.

          Slight smell in the room, the view of the river was only through a small gap between buildings, facial tissue in the bathroom was not replenish, location of the cupboard was out of the way as it was at the other end of the room (would have been good to be nearer to the toilet and entrance door for easier retrieval and storage)

        • Family with children
          8.2

          Central location. Very pleasant reception staff and breakfast staff. Decent breakfast. Very comfortable beds.

          Curtains and blinds didn't block out light satisfactorily. Restaurant pizza terrible and poor value for money. Very small shower room. Travel cot seen better days.

        • Couple
          10.0

          We enjoyed our stay a lot!!!! Very friendly staff, very clean rooms! Brand new and bright! We are even planning to come back and stay in the same hotel in the future. It is in the centre of Lucerne, there are lots of very nice restaurants around. Minutes to Shopping district and the train station. We even walked to the casino at night times. It was fabulous|!

          Breakfast was just the usual.

        • Older travelers
          8.2

          The Zum Weiseen Kreuz is located on the Ruess in old Lucerne. The staff was very, very helpful and both restaurants associated with the property are excellent (one Chinese and the other Italian). The room had been updated and in very good condition. The hotel is ideally located near lake Lucerene and within the old town.

          The location of the hotel is near all the shopping, boat trips, etc. in old Lucerne, but we could not find the hotel from our GPS because it is located in a pedestrian area. This was confusing at first, but the hotel staff let us know that as guests, we could drive our car to the hotel to unload and register. Parking, however, was about a 10 minute walk from the hotel. Lastly, our room was very small. No chairs to sit in and barely enough room around the bed.

        • Family with children
          7.4

          The location is central- just one block in from Lake and numerous sidewalk cafes by bridge. Very nice terrace with view of clock tower (but not Lake) and free internet worked in room (not always a given in Europe) Espresso machine in room a nice extra

          The rooms were small for the price. Luzern is very expensive but I would still rate the value as fair and wished I had price compared a little more.

        • Older travelers
          9.6

          Fantastic location near the lake and the old town. Very close to the train station as well. Room very comfortable, loved having the coffee machine.

        • Older travelers

          Location, breakfast, wifi internet

          Small room, only one chair
