Don't Expect Too Much
I stayed at the Jailhotel four nights. The accommodation is pretty basic – I stayed in a single room with a small bathroom. There aren't any screens over the windows so there were constantly bugs in my room and on my bed, which kept me awake at night. There's no air conditioning, which also didn't make for a pleasant night's sleep August. Since the place is an old jail and the walls are thick, I could hardly get phone reception in my room. There's wifi, but only in the small reception area downstairs, so it's always packed with people. There's no lift so have fun carrying your bags up the stairs – the staff won't offer to help.

The only thing good was the cheap price.
It was the cheapest hotel in Luzerne near the railway station. However it really is a very basic hotel. The location is great.
