We stayed at this hotel as part of a group tour so I can't say if it was good value for the price. The hotel is a longer, but doable walk from the city centre. However, I wouldn't plan on doing the walk too often, especially in rainy weather. The hotel itself has a lovely view of the lake and...

The room was a nice size with windows that opened to smell the fresh air and view the mountains. Each side of the bed had a closet and small night table. There was a room safe. I...

I stayed at the Grand Hotel Europe for 3 nights because I had business in and around Lucerne. In addition to the absolutely wonderful location (central but nevertheless quiet and on the shore of Lake Lucerne), my room was spacious and seemed newly refurbished. The old luxurious rooms contrasted beautifully with the modern interior design. Service was very friendly and...

I spent 3 nights at this hotel during one of my business trips in Switzerland. The classical design makes it a bit different from the other modern hotels where i used to stay during my often travels.
