    The cental location of the Hotel Rothaus made it easy to walk to the old town, the railway station,for shopping and restaurants and to get public transportaion. The staff recommended a restaurant which was traditional and of good value. The rooms were small but included what we needed for an overnight stay.

  • Group of friends

    There was nothing so nice about the hotel to like. In fact hotel had very unfriendly and rude staff. Hotel did not give proper room service no extra pillows or fan on such hot day. Very lousy and bad breakfast specially nothing good for a vegeterian. I felt I had wasted my money on staying with best western hotel

    Bad hotel. Unfriendly and rude staff at reception they could not answer tourist related question from there own city how shamefull. Sharp edge furniture in room I Already got hurt twice in my leg. Lousy and cold breakfast with nO option for vegetarians. Too expensive hotel with no good service that makes your stay comfortable. Think 2 times before wasting your money after hotel best western

    The hotel Rothaus is in a very good location and close to the Altstadt in Luzern. The staff is very friendly, the breakfast very good and the rooms have been updated.

    The hotel rooms do not have air conditioning. In Switzerland this is not so necessary if you have cool nights and a good breeze. However, the hotel is near busy streets and is across the street from a bar - you will therefore hear road noise and people talking loudly particularly around closing time.

    Friendly staff.

    Very expensive for what you get. Room was good but simple and price was very high.

    Location.

    The room looked nothing like a "Best Western" Room.. Which makes sense because we seent hat it was an individually owned best western. The furniture was all really old and mismatched.. No ac; had to call down for a fan. The tub was weird, old and dingy. No soap for your hair just your body. I go to school online and being on the 3rd floor (Not the top) I couldn't get the wifi to work consitently on my iPad.. When trying to submit posts it would time out. So, I had to go sit in the lobby just to do my school work. The staff wasn't much help when we asked for their recommendations on what we could do nearby. But, I guess that's not what we paid for so can't be too mad. All in all I was expecting a lot more for the price we paid.

    The location- it is only one bus stop away from my office (or a 10 minute walk)

    A one-star room in a three-star hotel! I chose this hotel because I liked the design of the rooms (from what I saw on their website, I thought they had all been renovated). However, when I arrived, I was given a small room on the first floor, which still had the old furniture and nasty brown (smelly) carpet. I was not impressed. To make matters worse, there was a gathering room at the end of the hall,and on my second night there, after a long day at work, I came home to a large group having a very loud get-together, which lasted for a few hours. Also, the man working on the breakfast shift was not friendly at all.

    Exceeded expectations. The hotel is very comfortable and recently renovated, very clean and nice. We asked for advice at the reception for a good place to eat a Wiener Schnitzel. The lady at the reception was not overbearing but told us that the hotel's restaurnat has good offerings on this front. After touring the old town, we didnt see anything we liked (most restaurants were closed due to Easter) so we went back to the hotel. And my God I am so glad we did. The schnitzel was the best I have ever had anywhere. Thanks for this suggestion. Also the service was immeccable. Thanks and keep it up!!!

    There is no on-site parking, and it was a rainy day when we checked in. We had to park at the indoor pay parking across the street. Had to walk to the hotel in the rain and had to pay extra for parking.

  • Family with children

    At arrival it looked that reception is doing a formalties of giving a room than a welcome. Staff behaviour was strange not sure if this is more for people belonging to east than west. Was finding it hard to explain basic needs such as if you ask for normal water, you are asked you want mineral water or water with bubbles and your no knowledge about local language is considered as laughable..... Lot more to write but will stop here.

  • Family with children
    6.2

    The location is quite good. You can follow the river, and this is a good start point for the city tour. Easy to access to the old towns, and located in a quiet place. Near the hotel there were kioks and Asian supermarket and lots of restaurants.

    The price - too high. Yes, this is Switzerland. But for the price the room was unexpectedly small. The interior and the bathroom was so-so. It is 3 times higher than the hotels of this level of facilities in Frankfurt.
