This hotel's location is absolutely the best you can have in Zug. Its rooms don't quite live up to that standard but more than made up for by its restaurant standard. NOT CHEAP but excellent standard of food. Not sure where you park but great location for a relaxing night or 2.

My husband stayed here for 10 days last month while on business in the area. I joined for the last 5 days. Zug is a delightful town on a beautiful lake minutes from Zurich and the Lowen am See is right on the lake in the heart of the gorgeous old town. Nice rooms, terrific staff and fantastic restaurant on...

The service at the reception was very nice and helpful. Rooms are ok, nothing extraordinary but clean and vell equiped. Location is very special, few steps from the lake. Dinner in the restaurant downstairs was delicious, good choice of meals and wine

I have stayed at this hotel many times. Every time the staff at the reception have been pleasant and welcoming. The location by the lake and in the old town is beautiful and the hotel rooms have also a view to the beautiful historical courtyard and the lake. The breakfast doesn't give you any amazing surprises but fulfills any normal...

I spent just one night, and arrived rather late. When I stepped out of the taxi, people were having dinner in the hotel's own (and widely known for superb local food) Brasserie Löwen, as well as all the neighbouring restaurants. Some live jazz, good food in a warm night ... I need to get back there. The hotel was exceptionally...

We had a stopover on our biking tour ("Herzroute" in Switzerland with E-Bikes) in this hotel. Even in Swiss hotels you can find extremely friendly staff! The hotel has everything you need and this for a fair prize in this very expensive city (even soda water in the rooms for free and separate rooms for our bikes). Good breakfast. Quiet...

Room I had was clean, comfortable though decor was quite dated. Bathroom was spacious and more modern than the main bedroom. Location is excellent by the lake. Nice restaurant. Room had air con that worked well.

I stayed here for 3 nights recently. The room which I had (with a partial lake view) was "nice enough", but not that comfortable. Some of the staff at the hotel, say on reception, were really charming and incredibly helpful - however, others were pretty rude and offhand.

It is beyond tragedy that a hotel like this is so appalling in every way, and yet sits on one of the most enviable locations in Switzerland on the lake of a famous town of Zug. Zug is renowned for bankers and hedge funders, or certainly used to be. See review on Park Hotel and Ochsen. In the good old...
