    Somehow, my boyfriend and I got a tiny room that was painted in all black with black furniture and some really tasteless decoration that was supposed to be "romantic". It felt more like a dungeon. The bathroom did not smell clean (during a pandemic) Luckily, when we asked to change the room, the man at the front desk said we could change for the second night and even promised us a free upgrade and we were pleased. When we arrived the next morning to change rooms, the lady at the front desk was extremely hostile and told us we had to pay extra. We said we just didn't want to stay in a tiny room that was all black, and she said that any other room had a higher price. We said no, and then she gave us the key to the promised suite. The suite was a bit bigger (a normal size in a normal hotel) but the hot tub and the bathroom still smelled a bit off. The whole hotel needs a remodel. The strange decor gimmick just isn't my style.

    Charming but hot even in January

    Convenient central location but can be a tad noisy and hot. The room I stayed in did not have its own thermostat and I struggled to keep the room cool enough for a decent night sleep. I stayed in January and had to choose between being too hot in the room or, when I opened the windows, too noisy. I think the building uses a central floor heat system and even after asking the staff to turn down the heat the room was still uncomfortably warm. Beautiful and charming view over an old town square but, unfortunately, that meant a fair amount of noise can disrupt sleep if the windows are open.

  • 8.0.Very good

    Surprised to see upon arrival that the check-in is done in a different hotel and that the room is accessed through a very sad looking staircase (or lift). The room itself was spacious and comfortable, but the bathtub not very practical.

    Best place in Luzern to stay for the night

    We only wish we could have stayed longer!!! The check in for the Hotel Magic is a street over at the Hotel Krone - easy walk. The woman at the front desk was very kind and funny and pointed us in the direction of some things going on around the area for the Christmas holiday. We stayed in the "honeymoon suite" room and holy cow. Massive room with a view of the whole river and a balcony (be careful of the spiders on the balcony) and we only wish we stayed longer and with more people in this room. Perfect stay overall for the night.

    The outlets were all 3 prong so our adaptors didn’t work.

    It was well placed, but very difficult to find. It seemed to be an annex to the other hotel which was not made clear in the booking.
