Easily the best value we found in Lucerne and completely renovated earlier this year. Though the clientèle of this traditionally modern hotel is primarily business, the well-furnished, sparkling new guestrooms; convenient location next to the railway station; efficient, friendly, management; and low prices, are powerful pluses.

To those who book via the Internet, the hotel offers complimentary parking, no access fee for phone calls, a free fruit plate upon arrival, and a free room upgrade (if available).

Rooms available for nonsmoking and disabled travelers.

Daily Rates: Singles CHF 105 to CHF 170, doubles CHF 160 to CHF 250
