Hotel room was quite spacious, but pretty expensive considering the facilities available. Also the staff though friendly are a bit sarcastic when some clarifications about the stay are enquired.

This was our least favorite hotel on our month long trip to Europe. On the plus side, it was budget friendly, and the linens and bathroom were clean. The housekeeping staff was nice, as well. On the minus side, the check-in woman at Hotel Baslertor was not nice. I was able to ignore one particularly snide comment upon check-in, but when we had a small problem with the room, she was not only unhelpful, but unbelievably rude and condescending. I was so upset I cried in our room, and it unfortunately got our time in Switzerland off to a bad start. First impressions last a while. Fortunately, we met other people in town who were nice, and that helped a great deal. It was in the low 90s when we visited, and there is no air conditioning in the hotel, and the pull chain on the fan in our room was broken off at the base, so it was permanently set on low, which didn’t help much! We managed to tie dental floss to the chain so we could pull it and increase the speed to high. That, and keeping our door open, which allowed a breeze to blow through from the river (the window was open across the landing) made it bearable. No picnicking is allowed in the room (which was extremely tiny for our family of five), and the snacks in the machine on our landing were very expensive--5 Swiss francs for a soda, and 3 for a candy bar. Switzerland is expensive, but that is ridiculous. We stayed in a number of hotels and apartments during our stay in Europe, and we liked them all--except for this one! If you can afford something better, stay somewhere else.

When we arrived at the guesthouse we were informed of a room upgrade to the Baserlertor hotel (across the road) - both owned by same operator. Our room was simple but sufficient. The beds were comfortable and the shower/ bathroom facilities were good. The hotel is in a good location - a short walk into the old town of Luzern. Overall a good experience.

Possibly the worst place we have ever stayed. The location was excellent but the bathroom in the room was dirty, stank of urine, the shower curtain had mould all over it and the bathroom was so small that the wash basin was placed in the bedroom instead. The bed linen had stains on it and when we asked for fresh sheets, the receptionist apologised and promised they'd be changed, but unfortunately they weren't. The room was not sound proof, we could hear the guests on either side of our room quite clearly. We were told by the hotel that parking would cost CHF25 for 2 days, when in actual fact it cost us CHF40. The directions to the hotel were not clear and very confusing. I would not recommend anyone stay at this hotel.

I enjoy traveling in Switzerland for pleasure, but this didn't qualify! The place was old, smelly, dirty carpet, bath room not cleaned or the room...filthy! Did NOT look nearly as good as the on line photo. I'm short and the beds were too short for me. WAY over priced for accommodations, even for Switzerland and would never stay here again nor recommend it to anyway. Breakfast was an added 20 CHF and not much of a selection. Half of the staff were friendly and the other the complete opposite!

We actually ended up staying at the related property the Hotel Basletor as the Pension Rösli was undergoing renovation when we visited. The hotel and pension are on opposite sides of the street in the same location in the old city. The hotel was comfortable and reasonably close to the railway station. Breakfast was generous but not cheap.

Room was clean, bathroom very small, at least sink and mirror outside. Never had the breakfast as it was extra, and lots of coffee shops and bakeries around to get something. Internet available, but not working when we were there. Expensive for what you get.

Iwas looking forward to this stay, and what a disappointment it was!! The room was very small, the furniture old and shaggy. The bed was so hard that we felt every bone on us. The bathroom was small and we had to wait like 15 minutes before we could get some warm water. The TV set was so small that it was hardly in use.

Loved the open window to the street. Would think the noise in the peak season(wth the open window) might be problem for some. Very reasonable-get what you pay for hotel.

This is a pension, not a full service hotel. You check in at a hotel 50 meters away. The decor is rather dated, but it is very clean and the room we had was - by European standards - quite large though the en suite bathroom is tiny. We were travelling with a toddler and the front desk clerk apologized for not seeing the baby cot request and promised to have it brought right over, and it was there within five minutes. We did not take the rather expensive breakfast at the hotel (same as check in), as there is a bakery directly across from the pension. If you don't need a full service hotel this is an excellent value in a great location. We definitely recommend it.
