We spent two days in the Lucern at this hotel. It is definitely a five-star hotel. The staff is incredible, knowledgeable and helpful. Our Viking representative was very helpful and knew where we should go, when we should go. It was the best. We did the Lake Lucerne cruise and what a beautiful lake. The history of the lake is...

My wife and I stayed here for 5 nights, in a junior suite with 2 balconies overlooking the lake. From the moment we arrive the staff was attentive and professional. Breakfast every morning was perfect. My wife is gluten free. As soon as we sat down the waiter made sure she got her gluten free bread, and my ice coffee..... More

Spacious rooms, elegant old world feel really special place. Steps away from the lake, enjoyable outdoor dining and seating for just a coffee and a view. Can't beat the location a few blocks from the train station and historic bridge which Luzern is known for.

We stayed here for two nights and were able to get upgraded to a junior suite with a balcony facing the lake. I would highly recommend the hotel and the room if it's an option. We took a (very expensive) taxi to the hotel from the train station since we weren't really sure how to find it. It wasn't far... More

This is a lovely, historic hotel. It has a gorgeous lobby, and we had a nice-sized room and bath with large windows. It's in a stunning location right on the lake with a beautiful promenade right in front, and has a magnificent restaurant with a wonderful breakfast buffet. We're never enjoyed a hotel as much as this one. It's an... More

We stayed for the first two nights in a week's holiday across Switzerland to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Our very large junior lake view suite was excellent with beautiful views, and all the staff could not have been nicer. A complimentary bottle of the hotel's Prosecco appeared on arrival, and when we put up one of our anniversary cards it... More

The Schweizerhof in Lucerne is a wonderful hotel, authentic olde world coupled with modernity, fabulous location overlooking the lake and close to all of the wonders of the city. Great for business meetings too.

This is an older hotel, but very well maintained. Each room has a theme of a famous person with personal info on that person. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Location could not be better. It is within walking distance to all the points of interest. I would highly recommend this hotel.

Empathy & Excellence at Lucerne's Festival Hotel: Situated near the Old Town and directly on the shore of Lake Lucerne, the Hotel Schweizerhof Luzern is only stepy away from all major points of interest, the KKL, severing shopping facilities and the railway station. The house, since 1861 owned by the family Hauser, offers a spectacular view over the lake and the Swiss Alps. We are welcoming you with award-winning rooms and suitss where the Schweizerhof-history comes alive. However, the design of our rooms is only part of the overall concept: every single guest rooms also tells a story about the visits of famous people such as writers, musicians or actors to the Hotel Schweizerhof Luzern. The 2 restaurants 'Pavillon' and 'Galerie' make for culinary highlights, the trendy Schweizerhof Bar delights hotel guests as well as local pedestrians with daily live music. 9 Different function rooms, concierge service, parking garage, fitness-corner, business-corner and free WiFi. ... more   less
