Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Very closed to Lucerne central station, accessible to different shops. The team are very accommodating especially Ivana who was helpful to make my check in smooth as I arrived late at the hotel. I would recommend to friends who wants to visit Lucerne.

Wonderful hotel in a great location, close to the train station. The hotel is clean and comfortable with a very accommodating staff. Location was perfect, within walking distance to the river ferries, the trains, and a lot of shopping and restaurants. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Lucerne and this hotel made the trip even better!

I am currently still staying at Hotel Central this is my last night of a 4 night stay and all I can say this hotel is amazing. It seems to be a family run business and you can tell by the service you get. The hotel is clean and rooms are a great size for European standard. Breakfast is also plentiful. It is only a block away from the train station and a block away from the old bridge and restaurants. I would not hesitate to stay here again if I was in Lucerne. I highly recommend this hotel do yourself a favour and stay at this hotel

Our family of 6 was only here for one night. We had taken the Golden Pass Train from Geneva and were about to pick up our rental car to drive to Germany/Austira the following moring. Location of the hotel is perfect. Close to the train station and walking distance to all the sights. We had a very comfortable stay and Christian at the Front Desk personally ensured we set-up an additional roll-away bed set-up so we could get a good night's rest. Thank you!

5 out of 5 stars. Location was excellent. Room was comfortable. The best part of our stay was the staff. They were so kind. We missed breakfast by 30 minutes the first morning but the ladies in the kitchen kindly let us eat anyway. They even joked around with us a bit. The front desk staff went above and beyond. I forgot my hair straightener and the concierge literally ran all the way to the train station down the street to return it to me!! Can you believe that? That guy deserves a raise. My hair thanks you good sir. I needed that straightener lol. ❤️

A nice cozy hotel in a very central location near the train station. I highly recommend this hotel and f you are in town for a short stay. Room is nice and clean, staff are friendly and accommodating. I like it that the breakfast consists of produce sourced from the region. The location is central and near all the sights. And just around the corner from the train station. If you are here around the Christmas holidays, the Christmas markets are a must! Overall, the experience was top notch. A real home away from home.

We were greeted by very warm and friendly host on arrival. Despite arriving early as a family of 5 with. 5 year old, he allowed us to check in early (12pm ). Breakfast is included in the room rate, with good choices. On the last day, we had to leave early and couldn’t get to the breakfast, he offered for us to get to the breakfast before it opens and packed our croissant with us for our train journey. Might seem small gesture, but he really made our stay so warm and welcome. Other hostesses there are also absolutely amazing. The room is warm, and had all the things we need. It doesn’t have a kitchenette but we were able to use the coffee/tea area at the breakfast room 24/7, so not having access to kitchenette hasn’t been an issue for us. Location wise, it’s very central, excuse the punt. Easy to walk to the chapel bridge and train station (within minutes).

This hotel is very close to the train station but Lucerne is not a big city so this was less important than we thought. We booked the "Noble" room but it was much smaller than it looked in the photos. The bathroom was average but did have a tub which we appreciated. The halls were bleak. The breakfast was okay, nothing cooked to order but lots of options. When we discovered that we could have booked much nicer hotels for 75 Euro more, the ones we checked did not include breakfast, this one did, we wish we had chosen more carefully. It was not the right hotel for us but might be for someone who wishes to stay within a certain budget. The room was very clean and the mattress was very comfortable.

This hotel exceeded expectations. The staff were very friendly and most helpful, and the location in the cit of Luzern is excellent - walkable to everything. The rooms were quite spacious, as compared to many European hotels, and the breakfast area welcoming with a good selection of food and drink. We would stay again.

Warm welcome like home. I appreciate their service from enthusiastic, nice, and friendly staffs. Breakfast was beyond my expectation: Delicious Swiss style, 5 mins walk to Luzern train station. 3 mins walk to Chapel bridge. Nice room with mineral water. You can bring your food to sit in hotel restaurant. Check in online was helpful and quick. Love this hotel
