Breakfast in Austria this morning. Spent the morning looking around Innsbruck - a lovely town. We saw the Hofburg - the imperial palace and some famous golden-roofed balcony. All the facts are starting to blur together. It was a nice balcony, though... Time for shopping at Swarovski! It was lots of fun (except for the bus loads of pushy and rude …
Woke up to sun but a much cooler temperature than we have been having...my tootsies were freezing...only problem is that when we left the UK I hadn't thought about coming back at the end of September when it would probably be cooler, and I only took my flip flops!... You still wearing yours chicken? Left this lovely site and set off towards Ottenbach, our second stop in Switzerland. Haven't got to travel too far today. To get ...

... side of Lake Luzern, to a different campsite, twice the price! What we didn't realise was that the campsite that we were looking for, despite being only being 4.5km from the centre of Luzern was actually in a town called Horw and this is what we should have put into the GPS, instead of Luzern! After asking people for directions four times and nearly calling it a day at least twice, we arrived two hours later at the correct place, tired and ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Ibis Styles Luzern City Lucerne
I've been at some NH-Hotels and in my oppinion this is the worst. In fact, is one of the worst hotels I've been.
If the room had an air-conditioning and a minibar
The hotel is really nice, including the staff, location, etc. It is modern and the size of the room and bathroom is fine. The breakfast was one of the best we've had in Europe, with fresh fruit, yoghurt, many kinds of cheese and bread, even better than breakfasts in some 4-star hotels we've stayed.
The only things that we missed was an air-conditioning (it can be very hot in Switzerland; when we went it was more than 30 °C, and a minibar, but as a whole, we loved the hotel.
We have just returned from 2 week at the Europe. We had only 1night at the nh hotel. But my son ,11yrs old, said that he wanted to go back to this hotel. The outlook was not magnificent, but they served a good breakffast, and spacous room. More than that staffs are very kind to us. We paid $148 per room per night.
Overall I would say this is probably the best hotel for the price we have ever stayed in 2-week-europe-tour.
This is an excellent hotel, highly recommended, the customer service is excellent. The TV programs are excellent. I don't remember there is airconditioning though (we didn't need it when we went). The breakfast is delicious (just to name a few things, they have sausages and variety of gourmet cheeses). The only downside is the sound proofing, you can actually hear the floor creek when the ppl move upstairs.
Highly recommend the NH Luzern
My niece and I stayed at five different three star hotels on a trip to Italy and Switzerland and rated the NH Luzern at the top of the list. The room was great - modern and comfortable - with an electronic safe for our valuables. It was kept spotlessly clean by the efficient housekeeping staff. We found the reception staff to be very knowledgeable, highly responsive when we had a minor problem with our shower, and extremely helpful with information on touring and excursions. The included breakfast was the best of any of the hotels that we stayed in. The rate was also excellent - 155 CHF per night (approx. $123 US).
Excellent modern 3 star hotel. Great location within walking distance from everywhere: the old town (5 min), the lake (5 min), and even the train station (10 to 15 min across the bridge). Friendly service. I stayed two nights in mid June. The room was spacious, simply but tastefully decorated. Comfortable bed. Satellite television with channels in German, French, Italian, English and Spanish. Safety box in the room. No mini bar or air con though! However, as the hotel is located on a quiet side street with virtually no traffic, I had no problem to sleep with the window open. Small bathroom, but well appointed. The whole place was spotless. Good buffet breakfast: home made bread, croissants, cereals, yoghurt, fruit, hot and cold meats, eggs... I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and would no doubt stay again in the future.
We just enjoyed a very good stay at the NH Luzern hotel. The reception staff, Claudia, was very helpful and gave us an extremely comfortable room. the hotel is very centrally located and has a sumptuous breakfast buffet. I highly recomend this hotel.
NH is centrally located and was easy to find coming from the train station.
Good place to stay
the train station had a deal for 93euro a night here. T Its 5 mins from old town - close to the lion sculpture. Overall spotless and comfortable. Nice bar, above average breakfast and good but a bit expensive food. The first night we got a triple room (VERY NICE), we stayed a couple extra nights.
Central, but hot in Summer
- Nicely located, just next to Old Town of Lucerne. As they are reconstructing the whole building to have the largest hotel in Lucerne in 2004 it's noisy during daytime.
- Rooms are convenient, not spacious but modern bathroom, No A/C
- Small breakfast buffet but sufficient
- Friendly and helpful staff
