Life, sensation, culture: Lucerne the ever-popular tourist destination featuring a unique quality of life has so much to recommend it. The Hotel lies in the heart of the city and offers all the conveniences of urban living in a fascinating architectural setting. Its just a short walk from the lakeside promenade, the renowned KKL culture and convention centre, the citys trademark Chapel Bridge and many other sights and places of interest. The Hotel the work of French Pritzker Prize-winning architect Jean Nouvel is a unique establishment exuding charm and charisma. It offers spirituality and elegance in fusion of contemporary design. No two guest rooms are alike and each has a tale to tell. They lean away from the familiar and the everyday. The art lies not so much in what is included but in what is left out. Guests are invited to abandon themselves to the inspirational poetry which characterises this sense-awakening boutique deluxe hotel and to enjoy the genuine hospitality and luxury that this remarkable home-from-home offers.

Great. Very chic hotel, but the staff was extremely helpful - unlike some art hotels in the US. Great location, outside of the tourist area but within in walking distance. Don't miss the Rosengart museum.

You ARE cool enough to stay here!

Others have said it, and I agree... the Hotel is fabulous! From the moment we stepped into the ultra stylish lobby to when we sadly said good-bye, our stay was flawless. The Hotel is like staying in a gorgeous modern art installation, in a good way. Each detail, from the interplay of gleaming stainless to the warmth of dark wood, is carefully planned and executed. The lighting is dark and dramatic, and the staff, dressed in black (of course) is charming, helpful and remembers who you are, your room number, etc. Our favorite highlights included eating in the restaurant, Bam Bou and looking up to a high window that looked into the lobby - whenever someone would walk in, it looked like a giant screen - the guests becoming part of the art. We also loved the glowing night stands and ceiling mural. The room was huge, the bathroom perfect, the amenities (robes, body care items, sheets, etc.) luxurious. The steel outdoor louvered blinds (controlled by a bedside button) effectively blocked out any light and greatly reduced the minimal street noise and church bells. The neighborhood is perfect - the hotel sits across from a small park, plus it's only a 5 minute walk from the train station or the old town. However, if you prefer classic, old school hotels or are very conservative, this is not the hotel for you. But isn't doing the same old thing, boring? You ARE cool enough to stay here. Give it a try! And may I end with?... well worth the price!
