About Jailhotel

Authentic prison feeling in the first Jailhotel in Switzerland.

The Jailhotel is located in the heart of Lucerne, right in centre of the Old Town, and only a few minutes away from the lake. This former prison was built in 1862 and was converted into a prison hotel in 1999, the first in Switzerland. It’s a great budget choice for visitors and offers a number of conference rooms and business facilities.
A total of 56 different rooms and suites are offered from original “Unplugged“ rooms where you have a bunk bed and more authentic prison experience, to the larger “Most wanted” rooms, and largest Theme suites of Prison Governor, Library, Barabas and Falling Water.

The thick walls, solid doors and barred windows retain their original feel and as you're sleeping in a converted cell, shouldn't expect your room to be huge. Private bathrooms are small-but-adequate with a shower. The Unplugged rooms have their private shower across the corridor.

Great atmosphere, fantastic location and easy budget prices
