part two of my Royal Luzern Tips with more pictures.

The Royal Luzern is a Boutique Hotel located along a hill in Luzern and near The Casinos. The hotel is done is typical german swiss style architecture and is 6 floors in total (the 6th floor is the famiy's quarters) and it has 46 rooms and suites on the five other floors and all have balconies (you are lucky if you are facing Lake Lucerne as the view of the Swiss Alps and Lake Lucerne and Mount Pilatus is simply spectacular. This boutique hotel is rated 4 stars (I think 3 stars is more like it) and is a favorite hotel of some travel groups that is why we were billeted here (we were on a tour package) The location is along the hill of which you need to climb winding roads and steep stairs to go to the hotel from the main Haldenstrasse Road (a 5 minute brisk walk).

The rooms are basic and even the bathrooms are basic with a minimalist white and brown color and you would mistake the two round holes under the walled lampshades as decorations, when in fact they are the sockets to plug your gizmos like smartphones or tablets or cameras as the design of the sockets offers no differentiation. The rooms are fairly large for a european hotel but there is no ironing board here.

Complimentary Breakfast Buffet is included but they are just basic european continental fare and is served from 7:00 am to 10:00 am everyday.

Distance to the main shopping area of Schwanenplatz is about 1.1 kilometers and to the chapel bridge is 1.3 kilometers or a 15 minute to 20 minute walk. The Grand Casino Luzern is a 500 meter 7 minute walk from the hotel.

A Double Room without lakeside view is 210 Swiss Francs (CHF) a day
A Double Room with lakeside view is 230 Swiss Francs (CHF) a day

Check In Time is 3:00 pm and check out time is 11:00 am

The usual hotel of the tour group we booked was at the Ameron Flora Hotel, located near the Chapel Bridge, I suggest they retain their previous hotel instead of this one.

Unique Quality: fairly large rooms of a european hotel at 32 square meters a room (including the balcony), basic amenities include toiletries (again no tootbrush and toothpaste, this is europe after all!), complimentary breakfast buffet, in house safe.

cons: this is switzerland! so you pay 8 CHF for high speed wifi use per day on only one gadget!
no complimentary bottled water
no ironing board
no coffee maker

Directions: Rigistrasse 22, 6006 Luzern, Switzerland
