The JailhotelAddress: Löwengraben 18, Lucerne, Switzerland
Average rating: 74%
Rooms from: US$ 0
The former prison was built in 1862 and became the first prison hotel in Switzerland in 1999. Today the hotel accommodates all kinds of national and international guests from young to old, from backpackers to businessmen. All of them want to experience the unique jail feeling and be right in the centre of the city. There are 56 cells from the original "Unplugged" to one-of-a-kind suites. All rooms are equipped with private bathrooms with shower except the Unplugged rooms have their private shower across the corridor.
There is no Elevator and no TV or Phones in the rooms - we like to keep the atmosphere original!
The reception is manned 24 hours. The Jailhotel-Team is more than happy to be at your command for any questions or matters. The hotel's rich continental breakfast invites you to have breakfast from Monday to Friday from 7 until 10 and during the weekend from 7 until 11am.
During the weekend, the Club "Strichpunkt" is open from 10 pm - 5 am and could cause some noise. Hotel guests enjoy free entry though.
The fastest way to get to the Hotel is by walking. At the train station you cross the 'Seebrücke' and keep walking straight on the left side of the road. When you arrive at the jewellery shop 'Bucherer', you turn left and keep walking straight again until you are at the Hotel. On the way you will pass an 'Interdiscount', bakery shop 'Heini' and Snowboard shop 'Paranoia'.
