    Exceptional

    The location - just steps to the river and the hub of acitivity. Beautiful boutique kind of hotel, very pleasant, very comfortable. Would have stayed a week if we had time.

    Didnt like the breakfast - could be better for the price.

    The hotel location only .

    The ac temperature was not good , and the remote control for the split was LOCKED,and when I asked them to unlock the remote controller so they refused me and told me that we can't help u and we cant change the temperature, that was the most worst thing about this hotel . they do not allow any one to change the ac temperature and it waz too hot in the room.i stayed there for two horrible night of my whole Europe trip and I have to keep the windows open even at night . it waz very bad experience staying in baslertor summer pool hotel . I wont recommend it to anyone at any cost.

    Very good

    The central location was excellent with lots of Bars & Restaurants within easy reach.

    The rooms were nice but needed some modernising. The pillows were awful. The receptionist tried charging us a much higher rate on check out and charged for breakfast - until we proved we had not had breakfast (hadn't even booked breakfast) and had to present the confirmation booking email to get discounted price. The Pool was filthy - I know this was not prime season but we booked the Hotel thinking it would be nice to have a pool and in the end didn't use it as it was covered in dead flies, etc.

    Close to the old town. Great room, small clean. Has a pool, but to cold to swim in the middle of winter! Free internet - one of the things seemingly overlooked by many hotels at the moment.

    Breakfast is super expensive 18pp. We went into the old town for breakfast every morning for 4 days and never paid that much, even at some of the nicer cafes. Really cheap was at Manor Shoping Centre for 6pp!

    Great location, close to all the main attractions & shopping area!!

    We reserved a non smoking room, but the room smelt terribly of cigarette smoke, not very nice if you are a non smoker!! When I asked the attendant if this was a non smoking room she replied yes, proceeded into the room & said she could not smell anything, but also stated she was a smoker!! She gave us air freshener instead of offering for our room to be changed!! Great help she was!! Not!!!!!!

    The man at the desk was completely rude. The pillows on our bed were covered in dirt and hair, and the dust covering all the furniture was so thick it looked like it had never been cleaned. But I still can't believe how unbelievably rude the man was at the desk. We were two very sweet girls and had never been treated like that in our lives. Unbelievable!!

    The location is very good and the breakfast is reasonably priced. The bar staff are friendly.

    The room was too small for a family room and the beds are hard and uncomfortable. The bathroom was too small for a family room would be more suited to singles or couples.

    Fabulous

    Rooms are spacious, neat and clean. Location is great- only two minutes away from the Chapel Bridge and only walking distance to Lion Monument.

    No Minibar or refrigerator in the room; no Kettle for hot water. After six in the evening all shops and eateries are closed- grab something for the dinner early before that; else go to the Luzern main railway station which is 8-10 minutes away by bus.

    The rooms have air-conditioning and wifi.

    1. For the railway station, you need to walk at leat 8 mins. 2. The carpet was dirty, you can find some body hairs, nails.. on the it. I told the staff and she replied the room's carpet was not clean everyday... so disgusting. When you enter the room, remember to see clearly the floor. 3. No free breakfast, you need to pay Sfr 18 for each person if you want. I stay in 3 different hotels in this hoilday, and the other 2 have a breakfast. 4. Visitors are needed to pay the visitor charge Sfr 2.95 per night. When compared with other hotels in this journey, this was the expensive hotel that I chose but my feeling was the worst. I will not back again.

    Good

    The hotel is near to the main city centre

    When we entered the room the AC was not working. When we requested for a room change, we were told that rooms with working AcC are not available. So we spent a hot and uncomfortable evening in the room. Surprisingly when e returned to the room at night after dinner the AC remote was in place and it was working.

    Very good location, nice breakfast room and terrace.

    Water in the swimming pool was always cold (even in the hot summer days). One receptionist extremely nice, another quite unhelpful and distant (I waited 15 minutes in front of the desk for him to end his phone call, he was not able to recommend a restaurant).
