One of Switzerland's best-preserved medieval quarters, Altstadt Luzern attracts visitors with its maze of narrow streets, cobbled passages, and public squares. Located just north of the Reuss River and surrounded by the remains of Lucerne's medieval city walls and towers, the old quarter features an idyllic lakeside promenade flanked by a string of half-timbered buildings with elaborately decorated fronts. The pedestrianized Old Town contains most of the city's major cultural attractions, including the oldest wooden footbridge in Europe. This easily recognizable landmark serves as a convenient starting point for sightseeing tours.

Very nice hotel and super well located. For about €27 you can have your car parked all night. The room itself was very comfortable and very clean. The guys at the reception were very professional and helpful when needed. We highly recommend this place if you manage to get a good price.
It was a very cozy place with an excellent buffet spread. The chocolate bars at the breakfast buffet was a treat for the kids as they cud binge on them galore.. The staff was extremely polished and prompt. Loved the stay and kept wanting for more!!
