Gem in Lucerne
We stayed here for two nights between our stay in Bern and Zurich. We loved this hotel! The woman at the front desk Sonia I believe was her name) was so incredibly sweet and helpful. The breakfast area was cute and had a nice assortment considering they don’t have a kitchen. The room itself was very comfortable and the bathroom was quite large. The location was convenient to all things we wanted/needed to walk to. Overall, I highly recommend this hotel and would stay here again if I find myself back in Lucerne.

Wonderful Stay
We loved our stay at Hotel Central Luzern. The hotel was very clean, modern, and had lovely decor. The proximity to the city center and train station was perfect for walking, even with 2 children aged 6 & 8. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful in every way. They provided information about all the activities in Luzern that weekend, maps, and a pass for the bus and discounted museum fees. The breakfast was a perfect start to our day and it was so nice to have the coffee bar and fruit available to us throughout the day. The room was spacious for our family of 4. My only critique would be the feather pillows were too flat and I could have used an additional pillow or one that was more supportive of my neck while sleeping. This in no way changed how much we enjoyed the hotel overall. We will definitely recommend to all our friends.

Great weekend getaway - will stay here again
We had a wonderful time at this hotel! Group of friends traveling for a weekend getaway. The staff were friendly and helpful, guided us to see the city in the 30 hours we were there. Also, helped us with parking. The breakfast that was included was SO GOOD - would go back for the food alone!

Fantastic hotel and staff
Great hotel, convenient to train station and old town, excellent breakfast and rooms. Staff was great and very helpful. We needed immediate assistance to contact SBB train staff regarding my daughter’s lost luggage and the front receptionist made the call for us to connect to assistance line which was most appreciated. We will definitely return to this hotel on our next trip to Lucerne.
