The Grand Hotel National in Lucerne is not only a beautiful property ideally located on the lake and near city centre, but the staff is truly dedicated to ensuring that your experience is outstanding. I could not be happier with my stay here and I look forward to returning in the future. Highly recommend!

My hubby and I visited Luzern to explore the Transport Museum, and decided to spend our night in Grand Hotel National, we were about to take the cheapest room which is the city view but we were told that there's no occupancy, so we took a room with a lake view instead, it costed more but it's really worth it....

Stayed for 4 days at this gorgeous hotel! Wonderful view of Lake Luzern from our balcony. We picked a suite and were very glad with the room that was reserved for us. Since it was our anniversary trip, they set up chocolates, greeting card, breakfast vouchers, etc., along with rose petals on our bed and on the bathroom counters. Thought... More

I am a member and recently came back from an interesting trip to China. I stayed in three hotels with highly recommended Spa and Wellness facilities. I must say none of them are as good as the Hotel Narional's in Luzern. This Spa and wellness centre is so well designed, beautifully clean, very well managed, and has an excellent sauna,... More

Truly a Majestic Hotel in a great location on the water. Had waterfront room for New Years. Very spacious, clean and comfortable. Had many activities for New Years that were over the top. Staff had a great time with them. Staff cares deeply about the guest experience and it shows in everything they do. Location is a very easy walk... More

I had an unforgettable stay here, arriving effortlessly by train from a snowy airport to cosy elegance and a welcome both warm and efficient. My room was immaculately decorated in grand hotel style, with chandeliers and every comfort provided. The bathroom was modern and luxurious. The bed was so inviting I didn't even make it down to dinner. Best of... More

Charmy hotel with nice personnel and great rooms however never stay at the city side rooms: terrible roar generated by night club drums as to no isolation. We already couldn't sleep for two nights and have another two booked but the staff cannot help as the hotel is fully occupied. Even in the hotels situated close to runways of Heatrow,... More

Hotel – Old European charm, beautiful building, restaurants, bar area. Staff was typically Swiss friendly and helpful. Located a bit of a walk to the old city, but totally accessible and a nice stroll along the lakes edge. Literally less than 7 minutes’ walk to the old city but located right next to the casino. This was the largest room... More

Our travel agent (Mindy Waltz, Empress Travel, Schenectady, NY) booked this charmer for us and we should be sending her roses! The setting is FAB - we chose a lake side room - the view (the first snow on the lower Alps was the day prior) - was splendid - we even had a balcony with wrought iron table and... More
