A former prison, now a hotel for solo travelers and couples
As a former prison building transformed into a hotel/hostel, this option provides a great historical experience, and is also in a convenient location! The hotel is right in the middle of the city and is within walking distance to everything Lucerne has to offer.
Rooms of various sizes and prices are available, from dorm-like bunks to larger private rooms. Most rooms have their own ensuite bathrooms. Keep in mind that this was a prison, and rooms are small, simple, and stark. They offer free Wi-Fi, luggage storage, a great breakfast (cost is extra), helpful tourist information, and more.
The rooms do not have TVs or much else, as the hotel wants to keep the feeling of the historic prison as much as possible.
An onsite nightclub opens on weekends, and guests receive free entry.
Guests leaving reviews provide positive and negative stories involving cleanliness, a disorganized staff which is sometimes friendly and sometimes not, and noise on the weekends from the night club.
