About this listing
NO YOUNG CHILDREN OR INFANTS
Located in Luzern City Center this is a fantastic residency for any kind of traveller. Within minutes you can be lakeside with views of the Swiss Alps.
An hour journey from Zurich or Basel Airports.
In Summer or Winter Luzern is the perfect base camp for skiing, snowboarding or sledging in winter or Rock Climbing, Bungy Jumping or Sky Diving in the Summer! You will reach Interlaken (Jungfrau), Bern, Engelberg (Mount Titlis), Zurich, Ticino and Mount Pilatus, Melchsee Frutt, Älggi (geographical Center of Switzerland) within 3 hours.
The apartment will be shared with me (Viki) and as there are two rooms available on Airbnb maybe other travellers.
My apartment is clean and homely and I hope that no matter how long you stay it will feel like home.
Around Luzern you will find lots of restaurants and take-aways for every pocket and every taste, or you could visit the supermarket just down the road and cook in my well-equipped kitchen.
If you plan on staying around the town you still have numerous activities and sights to see, from the must see (must photograph) Kapellbrücke to the Lion Monument, 1 minute from my door! There are also a variety of museums and art galleries. The transport museum is a big and fantastic day out which also houses an Imax cinema.
As well as all these all year round attractions we also have our amazing festivals;
Fasnacht – Carnival to say goodbye to winter
Honky Tonk Festival – Live music around the city
Fumetto – Bringing comedy to Luzern
Rose d’Or – Entertainment Festival
Rowing World cup – Interntional sports in beautiful surroundings
Blue Balls Music Festival – with big names, in 2011 they had Lenka, Ben Harper, Macy Gray and Erykah Badu.
Luzern Marathon – Attracting athletes young and old
Luzern Blues Festival – Bringing the blues to Luzern
There is NO elevator… stairs up to the 3rd floor I’m afraid!
You will have access to the 1.5 bathrooms the kitchen and a spacious living room. Not to mention the terrace downstairs whether for hanging the washing or just hanging out!!
Interaction with Guests
I live in the apartment but I work 3 or 4 days a week and in summer I'm usually out soaking up the sun or hanging out with friends. In winter I work a bit more or I'm out skiing. So I would say maybe you see me maybe you don't but as a general rule I will be present when you arrive or say Hi when I come home or when I see you are home!
I live in the city but I live just 20 steps away from the busyness!! You can get to the Lion Monument within a minute and all the shops are all within 15 minutes walk!
The bus stops in both directions are less than 100m away, but because I'm so close to the city walking is always an option.
I don't recommend hiring a car in Switzerland the train journeys are beautiful and the service is reliable!

Viki greeted and welcomed us personally. Explained to us the house rules and regulations. Her apartment is super clean and our bags alone made her apartment super full. Very near and easy excess to the city even by foot. We tried to be as quiet as possible, but I think with 8 of us, it was hard to obey this rule. Especially when we have to drag our bags up & down to/from the 3rd floor..We apologized for that. Thank you for letting us stay with you.
Very convenient location 10 minute walk from the train station. Vicky was welcoming and helpful. Rooms as described. The kitchen was well equipped and Vicky provided juice milk, cereal, toast, butter and jams for breakfast for us along with refrigerator and cabinet space for our food. Good value for the money. We had the front room which faces the main street; it could be noisy due to traffic, but when we closed the windows it was completely quiet.
We enjoyed our two nite stay with Viky and would definitely suggest our friends for the same. In fact location was very convenient. Thank u viki
Great location. It takes about 15 mins walk from main train station, we then found out that it is convenient to take a bus from the main train station and alight after 3 stops to get to the apartment. In one of the nights during our stay in Dec the water heater was not sufficient for one to shower. We had to wait till the next morning to shower. Overall a decent stay.
We had a nice stay at Viki's apartment. Viki is an definitely an experienced and agreeable host. The room is spacious, tidy and quiet. The whole apartment is very functional and well-equipped. The location is good as well, as it only takes 10 minutes to walk to the train station, and there are lots of grocery and shops nearby. All in all, it's a highly recommendable foothold for a trip in Luzern.
A pleasant stay. Very clean, tidy and organised. The bedroom is smaller than expected. Just we have heavy bags which need to carry them up 3 floors.
It's in a nice neighborhood and the listing is accurate. She made everything exceptionally organized with labels or written explanation, which made us very easy to follow on what we could take/use or not to take/use. Definitely it's highly recommended!

About the Host, Viki
Hi I'm Viki!!
I am originally from Newcastle, England, living and working in Luzern for 14 years.
Working in Gastronomie all my working life has brought me to this wonderful city where I just couldn't ever leave!!
As I love travelling I try to take all the best I have seen from around the world to make my guests stay as enjoyable and stress free as possible whilst giving them the feeling of home away from home!
I mentioned I love travelling, I also love reading, music, cooking and learning languages even if i never master them!! It's still feels good to say a few words in the local language!
