Location and accessibility The location of the hotel is great (walking distance to all main sights) and the views from our room was stunning. However, I would not recommend the hotel to anyone travelling with a baby. For starters the hotel can only be entered via a flight of stairs which makes moving about with a buggy quite difficult.

This is a very interesting, wonderful hotel. It has an old European style exterior and some of that is carried into the lobby areas. But the bedrooms are very contemporary and comfortable. Ours was dedicated to the actor Christopher Lee. Because it is an older hotel the rooms are also very spacious which was great. We were in a room... More

We stayed for two nights at the end of our trip to Switzerland and had a very good experience. We had a lakefront room on the second floor with a good view. The room was large and bright, very clean. Adequate bathroom with a surprisingly modest selection of toiletries. A/C was functional, but could not get the room as cold... More

We stayed at this hotel as part of our river cruise experience. It is the oldest hotel in Lucerne; however, it is a well-cared for hotel. Our corner room was on the fourth floor overlooking Lake Lucerne. The room (185) was nicely decorated in an updated motif in a homage to Roberto Benigni (sp?) who had stayed there. The large... More

Two nights in a beautifully appointed quiet room made us want to linger longer in the lovely city of Lucerne. Overlooking the lake and easy walking distance to all the sights, a lovely bar and dining room made it hard to venture too far. Staff were very helpful yet unobtrusive. We highly recommend the Hotel Schweizerhof in Lucerne!

Years ago when we ventured to Europe, it was the same nonchalant attitude of service people in the hotels we stayed. You spend a pretty penny staying in these hotels and when the concierge couldn't give you the time of day, restaurant staff walk every which way expect your way and front desk people have sad looks on their faces....yawn!...

This is a grand and historic hotel, but with a modern wing which has been recently and tastefully fitted out. Many rooms have a connection to a past and famous guest which makes it all the more interesting. Our room was at the front with a lovely view of the lake and surrounding mountains - worth paying the extra, but... More

Yes, the Schweizerhof is truly the grand old lady of Lucerne's hotels. But the lady got several face-lifts over the last few years. Every single one of them in keeping with the grandeur of the place. This time I stayed at the suite named after the Italian singer Gianna Nanini - beautifully designed and with a stunning view over lake... More

Great 2 night stay in Lucerne at the Schweizerhof. My partner and I had a large room facing the back of the hotel. There was a king size bed, walk in closet and large bathroom with separate shower and tub. The bed was firm but not to firm. I wasn't crazy about the pillows and would have preferred something firmer,... More

This hotel is an absolute gem. Conveniently located, great professional staff, and a view that simply cannot be beat. We woke up each morning to a stunning view of Lake Luzern and the Alps beyond. Just simply perfect. One of the best hotels we have EVER stayed in.
