I stayed in the hotel for one night only. The hotel is very comfortable and suitable for relaxing because of its great location and amazing view. From the hotel balcony, you can see a lovely view of Lucerne city. The hotel is really close to the main railway station so you can reach the hotel by foot. Also, the staffs...

One of the cleanest rooms I have stayed in.And what a view! Of the wooden bridge and the lake and the mountains beyond! And to be staying on top of a pub- music and a buzzing street below!Loved the burgers and the fish and chips in the pub below- and their xtra fast service!

Good Old English styled Pub. Beers were cold - just right cold. Good pub styled food. Staff very friendly. Ramona in particular was a star. Great atmosphere. Very centrally located. Would recommend this pub for a night out.

We spent 5 days here basing ourselves in Lucerne while we travelled around Switzerland. The view from our room was amazing. The room is a decent size, good bathroom and the hotel has a washing machine and dryer, very helpful when you have been traveling for a while. The pub downstairs has a great range of food. My only recommendation...

As far as accommodations go, I have nothing to complain about at Hotel Pickwick. Our triple room was small, but clean, and, as advertised right on the river with a beautiful view. The staff were helpful at check in as well. As other reviews mention, check in is in the pub. At the same time, I would not stay in...

Dear kortne Thank you very much for taking the time to write a detailed review. We are pleased that you felt comfortable in your triple room and enjoyed the gorgeous view to the Chapel Bridge and Mount Pilatus!

We arrived in Lucerne without a hotel reservation and found this little gem as we walked along the waterfront. The pub was busy when we arrive but the staff took the time to let us look at the room before we paid. The view was unbelievable, and the beds were comfy.

The staff is very friendly, the room is compact but clean, bedding very comfortable. hot pot for tea and coffee and wifi. It is in the perfect location for all the sights and the view is exceptional. Can walk from the train station to the hotel. The tourist office with walkable tour is nearby as is grocery and many resturants

Even though the room size was small, the place is clean, well situated and good value for money. Maybe not the best for family with small kids, but as we were two couples, enjoyed thoroughly. Great to have a drink at the pub.

Lovely place. Friendly staff. Small-ish room, spacious restroom. Found everything to be very clean. Won't be disappointed. Don't expect a breakfast- tons of places close by. Also, there could be mosquitoes from the bridge. Would definitely stay here again.

So I initially passed over this hotel because of the atmosphere (bar) did not seem like what I wanted on vacation. But eventually I decided to book anyway because of the fantastic location and price. What a great surprise. The room was much larger than expected, very clean and in good condition. The view and small balcony were a wonderful...
