“Waldstaetterhof >> a great hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2009

This is our third visit to this hotel and is maintains it's great standard of service coupled with a great location. The staff is top notch giving great advice on the city and always gracious. The food assortment at the breakfast is complete and outstanding. If you are considering Lucern, this location is steps from the train station is a good area of town.!

Give them a try!

This hotel is right across the street from the train station. At the same time, we found it to be very quiet. Lucerne is not a very big city, and the hotel is within walking distance to everything we wanted to do. Less than a 5 minute walk to all the "old town" area.

We found our room to very modern, and comfortable. The staff was always welcoming and helpful. Breakfast is included, and it was very good. WiFi was available for what I remember to be a reasonable price. Overall, it was a great hotel. We'd definitely stay here again if we ever return to Lucerne.

This hotel is right across the street from the rail station and just steps away from Chapel Bridge, Old Town, shops, and restaurants. Our room was a good size and clean, but plain and bare. This room would not be for anyone looking for warm and cozy. We enjoyed the full breakfast that was included in the price of our room and would stay here again.

The hotel is under construction until the summer of 2010. At 7am the construction workers were outside talking and unloading their trucks. There is no air-conditioning, so we couldn't close our windows at night (they did bring a fan after the 1st night, we asked). The rooms were clean. The front desk was pleasant and helpful. The breakfast was plentiful and varied. The hotel would be a good value after the construction is completed.

We stayed at this hotel during our trip in April. My husband and I went to Geneva, Lucerne, and Zurich. Of the three hotels we stayed at, this was absolutely the best.
We were able to check in early with no problem, and when we went to our room we were greeted by a beautiful room and chocolate on the bed! The bed was very comfortable, and we were able to have a good night's sleep.
The restaurant in the hotel, while I felt was a little pricey, was very delicious. We also ate the (free) continental breakfast which was good as well. After a few days, the continental breakfast gets a little boring, but it is at least filling and tasty.
The location is the best part. It's RIGHT ACROSS from the train station! So we were able to walk straight to our hotel, no cabs or buses. It is also very close and walking distance to all the fun things to do in Lucerne. You could not pick a better location!
If I go back to Lucerne, I will stay here again the next time.

It’s an excellent location to stay at Lucerne, as the hotel is right across the Rail station. It’s at the center of everything…tourist spots, restaurants, bus stop, rail station, subway, shopping area, etc.
However, the room is a bit small and does not have a balcony. But no complains, as it was clean and tidy and very functional.
Breakfast is pretty good and the customer service is outstanding. The staffs are very pleasant and very helpful. Room service is a phone call away.
I was really impressed, and that’s the reason I stayed at this hotel for the second time.
See da pics & sorry for da mess, wz chkingout.

We were very happy with this very clean hotel with sophisticated, contemporary decor. It is just a five minute walk from the train station, the performing arts center and the docks for the ferries transporting you around the lake, so the location cannot be beat.

I was impressed that their recommendation for a great breakfast when we arrived before our rooms were ready was a Swiss business several blocks away and tucked in a quaint corner of historic Lucerne. They were right about the food and we would never have stumbled upon it otherwise.

Breakfasts were hearty and served in a large comfortable dining room. Absolutely worth every penny.
