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....

The plane ride itself was a little bumpy, but other than that uneventful, with the exception of the unavoidable crying baby on board. But it was OK, I wasn't planning on getting any sleep anyway-nearly impossible for me. So I did some reading in my guide books, tried to watch a bit of Twilight which couldn't ...
