Upon arrival you are greeted with the most beautiful landscaping. The colorful flowers are beautiful! The location is central but not on a busy street. There is a wonderful restaurant next to the hotel. The lobby is quite grand. The rooms are more spacious than most in Europe as it was the next to last of the eight countries I... More

Lucerne was our second stop on our honeymoon trip and we chose to stay at Grand Hotel Europe after reading all the good reviews on TripAdvisor. The hotel is a nice place to stay with a wonderful location as the lake is just across the road. We had booked a lake view room but to be honest the view isn't... More

Grand Hotel Europe is one of my favourite places to stay out of any of the places I've visited around the globe. Staff are friendly and speak many different languages and the overall "vibe" is spot on. Located just across the street from the lake, Hotel Europe has magnificent views from the lake facing rooms (most of which have balconies)... More

Staff was so friendly and welcoming! We had a little room on the 4th floor with amazing views, always clean and very comfortable. Breakfast every morning was excellent and again the staff incredibly attentive. Very easy walk to town and directly across from the lake walk. Would stay here again in a second!

There is nothing Grand about this hotel. The room interiors are old, bed and pillow are way to soft/used. The room also lack amenities such as a mini bar. Restaurant wait staff are terribly rude. I asked for a spoon and was denied simply because she was lazy and afraid that other diners would ask for a spoon. Well, she... More

I actually stayed here in September 2009 (but couldn't set the date that far back). I came for a conference and brought my wife for a few extra days. We loved the hotel. We spent a little extra to get a corner room with a balcony. The balcony was VERY small - enough for two seats and a very small... More

Stayed here two nights and first impression on arriving was WOW. Ok, so the age of the hotel means its facilities aren't ultra modern but room was comfortable and clean. The lounge area had an old world charm to it same as the breakfast room. Well within walking distance to the centre and what a lovely walk along the lake.... More

Walking distance to the city center. Located just along Lake Lucerne- nice place for leisurely walking while feeding swans. But No free wifi- CHF5 for 24 hours (not so bad but still not free). Provides only shampoo / bath gel, nothing else. Breakfast was ok. Not 4 star at all for me.
