“Great staff, good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2014

While pricey, this hotel was a fun place to stay. You can walk to city center or take the bus which stops near hotel. The funicular to the hotel was fun, but slow.
The staff were very helpful and friendly. We splurged and enjoyed breakfast in the hotel restaurant which was fantastic. The views from the dining area were beautiful. The breakfast buffet was the best we had.
Our room was average, but it did have a nice balcony which gave us a little view of lucerne from the far end.

Dear guest

Thank you very much for your feedback. The perception of the prices is very individual and the impression if they are perceived as moderate or high is at the moment strongly linked to the currencies. The Swiss Franc is very high compared to other currencies these days. Just to let you know, that we did not increase our prices.

The HOTEL MONTANA team is happy to read that you had a wonderful stay with us. We all hope that you returned with good memories from your trip and the city Lucerne. Our funicular is the shortest in the world and got this award from Guinness world records. Even we are still impressed from the marvelous view over lake Lucerne and mountains from the MONTANA hill.

We hope that we can welcome you again!

Best regards

Your HOTEL MONTANA team

If you visit Lucerne, this is the place to stay! What view of the lake and the convenience of taking the funicular was just great! We had a ball, everything was perfect! The balconies in our room was an added plus and I will always think of this hotel with the fondest of memories! The bar was great, I loved the decor, drinks and the live music!

This place was fun and I loved the music theme since I love music. My room had a few balconies and it faced the lake. The views were great! I also enjoyed going up and down the private funicular going down to the street. It was a convenient way to walk into town. This was a perfect stay in a beautiful city.

Room Tip: Room with a balcony and view!

The good: beautiful old building perfectly located on a quiet, yet centrally located side street. Beautiful view of the lake from the restaurant, and good service.

The bad: for the extravagantly high price that we paid (relative to other Swiss hotels we stayed at during the same trip), the rooms and bathrooms were a letdown. Dated, small, in pretty bad need of a fresh coat of paint, and not particularly well appointed. Also the breakfast food was average.

Dear guest,

Thank you for your feedback. The view over the lake, the mountains and the city are definitely a highlight. We are continuously investing into the infrastructure to keep ancient architectural elements preserved and newer things such as hotel rooms in the art deco style up to date.

I just loved everything about the four nights I spent at Hotel Montana in December 2013. The rooms are very clean, well decorated, and comfortable (tip- get a room with lake-facing balcony, the view is well worth the extra money). The entire staff was very friendly and helpful with tips for seeing the town and area. As for the restaurant, well, I had two of the best meals of my life there. The chef is a magician and an artist!

The location is a nice fifteen minute walk from the train station, or a quick 5 minute ride on buses 6, 8, or 24 to the Casino Palace stop. To get to the hotel, you have to take a short ride on the hotel's private funicular, which is a lot of fun.

I can't recommend this hotel enough. There may be hotels right in the center of the old town, but this place is in a good, easy to access location and you cannot beat the view.

Short ride from the train station and you are at the hotel with the best view. Staff very friendly and made us feel special. Rooms have a small balcony overlooking the lake and village. Only real downer was the shower...extremely small. The hotel also has a tram that goes down the mountain and right across the street from the lake. The hotel has a nice cigar bar with was nice. All in all a pleasant experience. Would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Corner suites are the best rooms
