When we checked in the hotel seemed to be on a quiet street. However just across the road is an area where local teens congregate at night - on Saturaday night they were yelling and screaming until about 4am. The rooms are hot and stuffy - no A/C or fans so we needed to keep window open - so no sleep for us.Tried to get a room change but although the hotel acknowledged the problem they wouldn't do anything about it. Sunday afternoon was the same (we were trying to catch a nap after the night before) Sunday night was a lot better.
Other than that, good location (10 min walk to the station and town centre) and a good price for Lucerne. But if you want a gaurenteed sleep you may want to try somewhere else....

... cared too much though.
After watching the brilliant win in the tennis we went to the Lion Monument. The Lion Monument was created in tribute of the Swiss Militants who were betrayed by the French in the 1700’s. I don’t know the full story but we overheard snippets from a tour guide next to us. Whatever the full story, it is a very moving monument. You can see the anguish on the Lion’s face and it just gets to you, you can really feel the pain ...
