good location, nice persons at reception
The ration quality/price is totally overrated. Too expensive for the quality of the room and stay.
Receptionists are kind.
There is no wifi in room.
Breakfast was good, so was tge location, room was too small.
Great location, coffee, food, and a supermarket around the corner. Easy to walk to everything - about 10 to 15mins walk to train station. Central area in old town. Lucerne is easy to walk around. Towels and linen supplied
Felt a little bit claustrophobic because of the jail rooms. Bathroom a bit smelly - probably needs more air ventilation really. Not a major problem.
Location is close to supermarket
Start getting very noisy from construction early at 7am and you could not sleep anymore
Stinky bathrooms, small rooms, dirty linnens...
Loud Partying in the middle of the Night. Really awful.
Low price and location.
Repairs: Soon after I arrived, I told the front desk about 2 room items that needed attention. 4 days later, nobody had done anything about it.
clean room….nice front desk service
breakfast is not good enough.. limited food selection…
Fun experience! Bunk beds were surprisingly comfortable!
Night staff wasn't very helpful or friendly, but the staff in the morning were very nice and took care of the double booking for our friends traveling with us. Parking was an issue and breakfast should have been included, as the room price was not cheap.
there is no proper ventilation for the bathroom.It smelled bad when i entered the first time.
The fact that the receptionist allowed us to park our motorcycles in the garage
No plug in basin Only 1 power socker for charging, and it was situated adjacent to sink, dangerous No where, not even pegs to hang clothes on Hardly any room to move around bed Window blind to short to be effective Previous occupants half finished water in room, their hair in the sink No switch by bed to turn lights off Noisey during the night An overpriced, over hyped shambles Very poor
It was Unique experience to stay in a jail. Staff were helpful
No table or chair in the room at all. No socket inside the room for charging, except one inside the washroom. But the worst thing is lack of a proper window.
Only location is good.
Just because its a jail experience hotel does not mean you do not provide even basic facilities to the people staying there. There is no lift so you have to carry luggage up to 3rd floor your self which was 75 stairs! The room has no ventilation. We slept with the door open for some air. No shelves, hooks or even a table to keep your luggage. We had to lay out out wallets, clothes, etc on the floor! The bunker bed is horribly designed. There is no space for the person to climb on the top bunk as the ladder is right next to the bathroom wall. The towels in the bath room were torn! The street is very noisy and some of the kids staying there were shouting all night long in the hotel and the staff did nothing to stop them! The wi-fi works only at the reception. They charge insane amount of money for this shitty experience. I would not even recommend it to my enemies.
Unique designed hotel. New experience.
Kinda old and humid Some smell in the bathroom Can' t use wifi in the room only in lobby
Price is low as compared to other Hotels in lucerne
wifi is only at reception
Great to get free wifi, amazing location, comfortable bed.
Sadly there was no hot water during my stay.
location is good for the old city.
Uncomfortable beds.Thin mattresses. No fresh air; you cannot open the window. Room smells musty and smoky.
no elevator, no water boiler
Very good location within the old city area. It was also very interesting to plunge into the atmosphere of the jail that was here until rather recent time. And finally, the breakfast was very abundant.
Absence of TV.
location was good!!! easily accessible,premises were calm!!!good staff!!!
room was not at all spacious.......even it was difficult to move around inside
Very comfortable and quiet. Basic rooms give a feeling of the history of the place.
No common room or kitchen. WiFi only in reception
I saw mixed reviews on this place but went ahead with it as I was planning the day to Lucerne last minute. The room (a double bed room, I think called a "single") was small, clean, and came complete with a bathroom. The bed was comfortable and I had an excellent night of sleep. Neither me nor my husband could hear the night club though we were on the first floor.
Check-in isn't until 3pm. If you want to drop off your bags early, no problem! Just be sure you don't really need to access them again until check in as the secure space for dropped off bags gets tricky to navigate.
Location and some staff are vety helpful
No elevator. no electrical outlet in the room except in the toilet. The room is bare. no table nor chairs to place our things. towels are too small.
Its a prison.
