Where to begin ~ we had the BEST time in Luzern! First of all, Rahel was incredibly responsive during the days leading up to our reservation dates and provided perfectly clear instructions on how to find their apartment. The pictures on Airbnb did not do their adorable place justice! We loved the look of it online, but the apartment itself is even more fantastic in person. She welcomed us with a wonderful note and even provided breakfast in the fridge for our first morning in town. The location was also perfect. It's pretty easy to get around, but this apartment really is in a great central location. While we definitely ventured out a lot, it was also wonderful to sit on their 5th floor balcony to enjoy the beautiful view of Mount Pilatus. Spectacular.
Rahel was the greatest hostess! We only hope she’ll let us come stay again someday. ☺ We already miss her apartment and Luzern terribly! I strongly recommend that anyone coming to town try to snag this spot as their home away from home. You won't be disappointed!
Rahel's a great host and our stay was perfect for us! Her replies to my queries were clear and prompt.
We had no problem lugging our luggages via a bus, 2 stops away from Lucerne train station and followed by a short walk to her apartment.
Everything was very clean and neat and she made sure we were able to make use of some of her wardrobe space, toiletries and kitchen amenities. Every corner of her apartment is tastefully and thoughtfully decorated, which made it a welcoming and relaxing stay. A pleasant mountain view from the balcony was all the more a bonus.
The only small setback of it being an apartment on the 6th floor with no lift is still worth the climb. Rahel was around to help me with the luggage too and made sure everything was proper before leaving her apartment.
Thanks for being a great and generous host!
Rahel is a wonderful hostess! She's very kind and generous with a charming apartment in a great location in Luzern. The pictures of the view don't do it justice, it's breathtaking…worth the hike up the stairs. The neighborhood has a Coop and Migros as well as cool bars and restaurants around the corner. Old town Luzern is an easy walk as well as the train station.
Booking was easy and she was very flexible with my check in which was really appreciated.
Thank you for a wonderful stay!
Very Clean aprtment located close to the Lucerne station. Kitchen was well equipped. Separate bath and toilet added to the convenience. Apartement also equipped with a reliabel wifi. 6th floor apartment with no elevator made for a nice workout!
We loved Rahel's flat - very central - very homely and comfortable. we had a lovely time there!
Rahel was so warm and welcoming to get us set for our stay. The unit was so nice and charming, we felt at home right away. And, to be able to have an entire apartment in Lucerne for such a great price was the icing on the top! She provided basic food necessities, AND homemade soaps. The unit was quiet and clean. I highly recommend this home.
Rahel was nice and the apartment was as listed. We had trouble with the coin operated washer and dryer in the basement (shared amongst whole building) but everything else was ok. Rahel left wine and chocolates for us which was a nice touch and she was very available when we had questions. It's an old building and hasn't been renovated but met our needs adequately. We thought the price was high but in Lucerne all of the prices are high!
About the Host, Rahel
I'm a young woman interested in different people and cultures.
I had the luck to travel several times to Spain, especially to Cádiz in Andalusia, where I studied half a year and where I still visit sometimes friends of mine. Some years ago I was in Nepal: travelling, working in a project with children, hiking, watching the nature and people. The trip was very impressive.
I live with my boyfriend in this charming apartment in the centre of Luzern with a wonderful view to the Mount Pilatus.
