nice clean hotel, very friendly staff. the booking however was with breakfast excluded, something that normally in Europe is also included [...]. When we got breakfast and ordered from the menu eggs-with-bacon ($11), that is what we got. No bread
nothing else. My daughter wanted a boiled, not scrambled so she got for $11 2 boiled eggs and about 2 bacon slices but not even water or a slice of bread. The continental breakfast ($18) consisted of slice of bread, crossant, two airplane-cup of marmelade and drink. Don't try to ask for anything else or pay $30. Gave an unneccessary nickle-and-diming-feeling for a good hotel with an eye for details and other things free as it should be (eg internet, welcome drink etc). bottom line: when you book here, make sure breakfast is included to prevent this irritation aka swiss-bookkeeping.
We had a wonderful stay at our hotel in Lucerne. It is in the middle of a pedestrian mall, so trying to navigate our car to the hotel was a bit confusing. After our arrival, however, we were upgraded to a junior suite for free and our view was
absolutely amazing. The room was beautiful, and the staff keep beautiful decor in the room. We would highly recommend this hotel (even without the room upgrade) to anyone traveling to Lucerne.

Shopping was everywhere to be seen, as was dining experiences. We did not use our car until our departure day.
