The Jail Hotel Lucerne
4.6 out of 5

The best value Hotel i have stayed in in Switzerland in the 10 times i have been. It's not glamorous but it's not supposed to be, a bed located right in the action, couldn't get any better. This is the second time i have been, and i'll be back again for the value for money!

You had initially told that this will be good for family. Beign you know I am with family HotelClub has suggested this hotel where it is meant for youth...there were lot of people drunken and making noise during the night...very poor suggestion to book this.

Great little hotel and right in the heart of everything. It is advisable to bring earplugs as the disco is very noisy and the patrons tend to hang around outside the hotel till the very early hours of the morning. The staff are wonderful and only too keen to help wherever they can.

Its a real Jail converted to hotel, will be an unique experience. Perfect spot for youngsters also. There is a decent Club/Disc(o) in the ground floor. The breakfast provided is also decent.

Had a nice stay here. Room was basic, but very clean. Just be aware of the night club in the same building. It kept me away Friday/Sat night!!

It was a good experience staying in an old jail and the location wasn't bad but the nightclub in the hotel has music playing most of the night so if you want to have a goodnight sleep then maybe stay somewhere else, other then that it was fine..

Beware if you want a quiet night, request a room at the back in a quiet spot. There is a nightclub downstairs that didn't stop until after 4am and the street noise didn't clear until after 5am. Otherwise this place is interesting to stay at because of its history.

Lowengraben is really a good place to stay if you are looking for low rate hotel and its situated right at the heart of the city lucerne. They have maintained the standards of cleaniness. I really enjoyed my stay at lowengraben jail hotel.

Nice room for the price. Abit small but wasn't planning on hanging out inside. Close walking distance from about anywhere you could want to go in the city. No TV but nothings in english anyways. A radio would have been nice. Staff VERY helpful looking up the weather and giving us directions. Didn't feel like we were bothering them when we had ?'s.
