Lucerne is compact and easy to explore, with the old town and all the main sights within walking distance of the rail station. So, we stayed at a hotel which was walking distance from Bahnhof Luzern / railway station Lucerne

We stayed in a Standard Double room type. This beautiful hotel has great theme rooms. The room is very very spacious, clean with a beautiful view. Each room in this type has its own character and is devoted to a special subject. The various themes are Aladin, Angel, Symphony, Lotus, Swiss, Chalet, Egypt, Pirate, Farmer, Mystic. Here, have a look. They also have luxurious rooms like Whirlpool Suites and Honeymoon Suites.
We were placed in the Egyptian Suite on the top floor of the hotel, which was decorated in an Egyptian theme with hand-painted murals on the wall, Egyptian statues, and wall art. The room was spacious and had everything we needed.
You can have a room with a window opening at Clock Tower of Rathaus Lucerne (Rathaus Stadt Luzern) for the view of Kornmarkt(best for viewing carnival madness) or balcony with a view of river Reuss and the Chapel Bridge.
The hotel is located in the heart of old town in Lucerne, historic places, chapel bridge, towers of old wall, and the lake are JUST there. Perfect place to stay.
