Für uns auf Velotour war dies die Abenteuerübernachtung, und dem ist sie auch gerecht geworden. Die Zelle ist eher klein und das Fenster auf "Gefängnishöhe" es entsteht ein guter Eindruck wie es wäre...wenn. Das Bad ist neu, sauber und angenehm. Im Garten wäre ein gedeckter Teil noch vorteilhaft, da man bei Regen gerne dort verweilen würde. Leider gab es coronabedingt keine Frühstück.

Die Unterkunft ist sehr speziell, da es ein ehemaliges Gefängnis ist. Es war sehr sauber, aber das WC ist zu klein.

Hallo! Herzlichen Dank, dass du dir die Zeit genommen hast uns eine Rückmeldung zu deinem Aufenthalt zu schreiben. Genau, das Hotel ist im ehemaligen Gefängnis von Luzern gelegen. Deswegen sind die Zimmer auch etwas kleiner. Jedoch haben wir einen grossen Aufenthaltsraum mit Gesellschaftsspiele, einem Billardtischund und Tischfussball. Gerne begrüssen wir euch ein weiteres Mal in Luzern. Liebe Grüsse
