Hotel des Alpes: A Breath of Fresh Air in Lucerne, Switzerland
During my short stop in Lucerne on the way from Paris to Venice, staying at Hotel des Alpes ended up being a breath of fresh Alp air. Having booked a room with a balcony, complete with a view of the river Reuss, the wooden Chapel Bridge and glorious Alps, it was a magnificent sight both in the morning and evening light. While the hotel’s location is unmatched being right on the river and popular pedestrian walkway with restaurants at your whim, it was actually the room’s bed that was so incredibly comfortable, it made it hard to leave. Having not only had plenty of time to stroll through the delightful city of Lucerne, browse the shops and eat some warm, hearty food in the crisp weather, nothing could beat the feeling of being refreshed to continue traveling after a good night's rest.
