Pleasant Hotel just off the motorway. It is near but not close to Lucern. The restaurant is found in the motorway service area, a few metres away.

Stayed on the way to and from Italy, reception staff were excellent, spoke perfect English and advised on local facilities. The room was good and as this is an Express Hotel so you aren't going to get the King Suite! For an overnight stop it is more than adequate with a double bed, Wi-Fi, TV and a powerful shower.

Rooms were clean and the staff (both cleaning and front desk) very helpful. However it is pricey compared to other hotels in europe (mind u, switzerland is expensive period).

My family stayed here for Christmas 2015. Very nice hotel beside the highway and a short drive to downtown Luzerne, the Alps and the famous Lake Luzerne. Breakfast was very European and adequate for us. Adequate parking and free wifi. Room was a little tight with sleeper sofa but we made it work. Overall, a nice experience.
