I stayed at a hotel called Welschen. I had a Matterhorn view from my balcony and my bed. (Didn’t even have to get up, except to open the curtain..) Fantastic hotel with breakfast included. Charming hotel and staff, couldn’t be nicer. Less than a ten-minute walk from the train station, if they even allow you to walk. I chose it because it advertised “Matterhorn view”. Not “Mountain view”, but Matterhorn. No night club there, but it’s Zermatt. The whole of the village is within a ten-minute walk, 15 , tops. (Perhaps longer in the winter due to snow on the ground). I assume you’ll be going in winter based on your saying that you folks don’t ski. Zermatt is a beautiful village any time of year. There must be several hundred hotels there, but I will be going back to this one come September. I’m already in communication with Sandra there. As far as Lucerne is concerned, there is a slew of hotels on the river-front, just steps from the Chapel bridge. I stayed at Hotel des Alpes, which I believe is a few doors down from des Balances. The area is great. I had a room facing the back streets, but it didn’t matter because I spent little time in it. If you want river view, it is going to cost more, obviously. It also did have breakfast included. Hope you find one that suits you. Happy trails.
