Fun experience to stay in former prison.Very near to sightseeing place
Window too small but that’s what prison looks like
The location is excellent, friendly staff, the breakfast great, and the place very well designed. Everything is expensive in Switzerland, so price is not cheap but you get value here. Would def stay in if I come back.
The room is clean, cozy and spacious with a balcony.
I have to walk up one flight of stairs after taking elevator to 1st floor. No kettle in the kitchen.
The hotel is very clean and cleverly refurbished. It is not made for long stays tough. The breakfast room is nice and the variety of food very good.
The "rooms" are obviously not extremely lit, due to small and high windows. They also miss something like a desk to work, so they are not ideal for a business trip.
We were pleased to have the very interesting library room, two full walls of books. The bed was large and comfy, and the nice member of staff who was on late got us extra pillows as they were quite thin. There was a fan in the room as well as a big radiator. The window bars were a good touch. Decent pressure in the shower. Very easy to get to from the train station and bridge. Seemed like a very friendly place.
The toilet/shower are in block in the middle of the room, so the toilet is behind your head when sleeping. It was very loud through the night with vans going about outside and noise from the bar. The curtains were pathetic.
With a stay at Barabas, you'll be centrally located in Lucerne, steps from Lucerne Town Hall and 4 minutes by foot from Chapel Bridge. The front desk is staffed during limited hours.
