One of the oldest hotels in Switzerland.Magnificent from the outside & first class service on the inside.If you're lucky enough get a room overlooking Lake Lucerne. the hotel offers tours of the place, all in German but just to see the history of it is worth it. I would definitely stay here again when in Lucerne.

A charming hotel in the perfect location with attentive front desk staff . And who would have known their rooms ave been visited by such celebrities as Bob Dylan (our room had his ID , music playing and quotes on the wall) and Roger Moore-007 Bond for our daughter. We had an ideal set up with a Junior Suite and...

We stayed this lake front hotel during Easter. The hotel was decorated with Easter eggs beautifully. I was suppressed by the large comfortable room in this historical hotel because my past experience was small room in European historical hotel. Each room is named by a celebrity who was stayed there before. When you checked in to your room, the TV...

What a fantastic hotel. Located right in the old town on the lake front, you could hardly ask for a better view. The road in front can be loud, but the when the windows are closed you can't hear a peep. Themed rooms are large and well appointed. In addition to the property being beautiful, the service was great. Regardless...

We were the only ones leaving as early (0400) to go to the Zurich airport and the bellhop did not load one of our bags! They sent a taxi with it and luckily it made it on time but damn, we did not need that anxiety on our way back home. Otherwise, it is the most beautiful, spacious room I've...

This hotel is luxury at its best! The lobby is gorgeous. Our room was gorgeous. The restaurant was wonderful. The included buffet breakfast had a huge selection of well prepared foods. Because of our early flight our last morning, we were given a boxed breakfast at check out that had more food than we could possibly eat. The staff was...

We spent 3 nights at this incredible hotel in a lakeside double room with a balcony. Every detail was magnificent. The front desk staff was exceptionally helpful and friendly; e.g., they double-checked the location of my husband's meeting and presented different options for transport, secured terrific dinner reservations multiple nights, and rewarded my husband with a bottle of Prosecco for...

We were there for a nice and sunny week-end. Good points : - people in the hotel very nice smiling and helpful - very well placed, in the center you can walk everywhere - the room was big enough with a nice decoration Less good points : - how a 5 stars hotel is not proposing a swimming pool ?...

This time around I was blowned away! Everything as it should be when you visit a 5-star hotel and when you have high expectations. The total attention from a service minded staff at the moment you're entering the hotel and until you leave again! And the breakfast is now upgraded and definitely lives up to the standard for a high-end...

Official Description (provided by the 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
