We were very lucky and spent a night at Pilatus Kulm during a period of spectacular weather. We took the delightful boat ride across Lake Lucerne to catch the cogwheel at Aplnachstad. If you do nothing else, take this cogwheel ride - it's fantastic! We then spent the night at the hotel and returned to Lucerne by gondola the next... More

Stayed overnight in the suite. The inceredible view by day, is topped by the view at night. All rooms have awesome view in the morning, very tidy, newly renovated. Wwith a bit luck spot wildlife in the dawn. The dinner was very good, apero included. Enjoy the full beauty of this place after all the tourist left!

Stopped in at Hotel Pilatus Kulm in April and must say this hotel has the best location ever. Service is fabulous and everyone went out of their way to help, even when it wasn't a typical request. Food was great, nice presentation and reasonable value considering the place.

The room we had is a corner room so we has a nice view from the room's window as well as the bathroom. Although the hotel was built during 19 century, it was recently renovated. So... More
