It's in good location. you will get the feel of jail in here. Rooms are small but it's OK for me as I'm solo traveller. Value for money.
No ventilation as only one small window was there but closed and you can't reach it even you want to open.
Location and originality
Breakfast, too expensive while limited choice.
Central location and price are all the positives we could have.
Noisy due to the nightclub attached even though we were given ear plugs on arrival (it says it all). We now know how prisoners must feel, very confined. Bathroom smelt of sewage at times and the room was far too warm, hard to breath at times during the night with the door closed. You need to keep the door open most of the time, very claustrophobic not to be recommended for adults...teenagers may find it ok.
Nothing!!! I like to travel and I do. I will stay mid - class places but this one just wasting the money I don't wanna remember. Please say somewhere else....
Everything!!! Unhelpful staff, cold room, bad shower, dirty towels and beds, floor dirty, no lift, charging extra for everything, no wifi in rooms even not in the hotel it comes from nightclub low signal it's useless. Just one plug in the room for two person and based top of the wall so stupid you can not charge your phone. Noisy nightclub untill 2 am!!!(week and weekends) also no room cleaning service during you stay. No gardrop actually nothing inside the room. Just bed. Total it was worse experience. They call jailhotel but real jail better than this and free of charge. Find somewhere else to enjoy your holiday.
The Location and the easy way at the recepction
The smell of humid walls
The theme of the hotel was great in its own unique style. The room price was OK, acceptable, but not valuable for money The breakfast was good(just eatable). The location was so so, not near but not too far from the train station. The receptionist guys were OK, but no service minds
There was no elevator which was a serious problem for me and my mother with big baggages, we needed to drag it up along the stairs. The room size was a little bit small with a floating bed under the ceiling which was annoying to climb onto (it was fun and exciting at first, but i started to get annoyed afterward). There was wifi only at the lobby, the network was slow and not stable.
railroad station is 5 minutes from hotel. the cheapest hotel in luzern
wifi was weak, i'd say no wifi, terrible flavour, indian guy took 15 chf more then it was stated in my booking, pretending that he didn't understand and repeating smth like "that's specially for you", i gave in argueing? because it was useless, but after midnight i fully understood the sence of his words: behind my second floor window it was a place where staff was smoking , and someone was looking through my window, because blinds were too short. Well, I was scarified by such pervertion and I am not a person who is fond of beeing watched during a sleep.
It was really too warm in the room. We slept with the window opened... No real furniture in the room. Quite expensive like everywhere else in Switzerland...
Special experience and lower price
the service was very bad
Just some staff atitude
No elevator, wifi only in reception, no charging points or phone in the room. The worst is you pay by credit card and they will charge 10% more, which means they don't like people with credit cards.
The location is not too far from the train station as the town is quite small and good to go to places for sight seeing in the town.
The receptionists were not kind and friendly, but ok. They charge the commission fee for usage of credit card, but they don't announce it clearly. Wifi was horrible as I could use it only on the ground floor, to be exact, I could use it only around the reception. So I had to stand just outside the reception and in front of the entrance. Plus I had to wait that my mobile connected to the wifi properly for a while somehow... Actually it was annoying.
Central to town. Excellent value for money. Good breakfast1
Price, location, clean, don't book if you want luxury. Fun experience.
No power sockets or wifi in rooms
In Lucerne for the blues festival which ran late I needed a bed and shower and Jail Hotel provided this. No frills. Quiet. Comfortable. Good hot shower.
No coat hangers to hang jacket and such.
wifi is not available in room
the location is ok, quiet, thanks to the Lucern is not big, reach anywhere just by foot
Internet is only available at the lobby area
Unique theme of the hotel.
Matress was terrible, I really wanted to escape from the hotel from the night.
It was a great experience staying at such a unique property that was converted from a jail to a hotel. It opens up the doors of your imagination as to what all would have happened within the same walls and cells (now rooms). Staff is great.
It's good only for one night's experience. Rooms are really tiny and difficult to navigate through. There's only one small window in the rooms and could get suffocating.
Location is good
A hostel not a hotel Loud Uncomfortable Fill of school trips
Next to coop. Quited area
No air condition . Small window. Only one plug in 1 room.
Location, breakfast and price. Staff was very helpful.
Price and location. A different experience. Real jail!
Towels worn out
Location is Good, close to the Center (By walk) .. An experience to stay a night in a jail..
If you have clostrofobia you can't stay there. Very small room, tiny window Up on the wall So you can't see outside. No wifi ( only at the reception)
My toddler son and I just needed a place to sleep as we were out visiting relatives the whole day. This place was ideally located for us and just off the old town with all the shops and beautiful historic buildings. The place is quiet at night, as the bar has now shut down and the beds were surprisingly comfortable. Staff was very friendly and helpful, although dont expect 5 (or even 3) star service. Pressure in the shower was good.
No hooks or railings in the room (except for one in the bathroom) to hang up clothes and towels. Towels in bad shape and only changed every 2 or 3 days. Bathroom floor got wet with every shower.
