Easy access to Lucerne. Two restaurants--one expensive, the other extremely expensive. Room was comfortable, spacious and clean.

Family run hotel (18 rooms) about 15 min by bus from Lucern train station. Bus stop right in front of hotel. Pleasant and helpful check-in staff. Room was on 3rd floor with no elevator, We were on a 6 day Swiss family trip, so had lot of luggage. Staff helped a bit with luggage, but not having elevator was unexpected. Lucerne was in middle of heat wave. None of the rooms have Air conditioning! Being on 3rd floor, close to roof, made the room even hotter. Even with all windows open, it was difficult to sleep first night. Room only had one small table fan. Next day, upon our request, the staff gave another fan, which made things bearable. Excellent breakfast and service otherwise. The staff was very courteous. Nice area to seat and relax in courtyard. 2nd floor up lake facing views have nice views of mountains and lake. Lake itself is 15 min walk. While checking out we complemented the owner about the stay, hotel and location but she seemed too busy to acknowledge the compliments. We found that bit off putting...

The Hotel Balm is located about a 12 minute bus ride outside of Lucerne. The hotel has a restaurant and bar. The breakfast provided with the room was excellent. The hotel is conveniently located on the bus route and the hotel provides a local transportation voucher. No elevator but the staff assisted with carrying the luggage up the stairs. Beautiful view of the mountains. Easy parking

Although located outside the city center, this is one of the best places to stay in Lucern. The fact that it is not right in the city is actually a plus rather than a minus because the area around the hotel is very quiet calm. The hotel is very clean, the staff is super friendly and getting there is really easy: about 15 min by bus #24 from the central train station. Some of the rooms have beautiful views of the lake and from the dining terrace on a clear day you can see the Berner Oberland peaks. Really nice place to stay!

The location of the hotel is quite good with the bus right in front of the hotel you can pretty much go to everywhere in Luzern. No elevator, if you have a lot of luggage, the staff (most of the time is a lady) will help you. The view from the restaurant is spectacular, every morning we enjoyed breakfast there with breathtaking mountain view. We also saw rainbow when we had dinner there (please expect paying the dinner more than $350 for two adults and two kids... it was a SURPRISE for us! Don't get me wrong, the food was very nice) The room is quite late 90's feeling with decent size of bathroom. Furniture can be dated (both chairs in our room were unstable). NO AC! And no bug screen over the windows...... We arrived Luzern in a somewhat 90F day, after checking-in we went out without shutting the curtains so when we got back late in the afternoon, the room was hot... we opened windows to cool down the room. Then there were a group of mosquito from the garden entered the room and both of my kids got bit badly, we had a almost sleepless night because of that. Hopefully, they will consider putting bug screen onto all the windows. It is an easy and cheap way compare to having AC installed in every room.
