We stayed for two nights in very cold weather in December 2016. The room was lovely and large, but not much of a view at the back. It took a long time to get the room warm, which was needed due to the weather. Good, but pricey food in the restaurant for dinner (the weather meant that we didn't want...

We arrived early in the day. Enzo and Michael were waiting at the desk to help us get started on a perfect day at Mt Pilatus. Every member of the staff we encountered affirmed our good decision to book this hotel. Excellent customer service, a lovely setting on the lake, and beautiful rooms will make you glad you are a...

This hotel is perfectly situated opposite Lake Luzern. We had wonderful views of the lake and the mountains from our room, which had been used by Mick Hucknall of Simply Red. It was great to see his signature on the walls. You can walk to all of the attractions, the room was very large and very comfortable. I am sure...

This place is Fantastic!! The rooms are all named from famous people that have stayed in them. We stayed in the room that the band Toto stayed in, really cool, especially the autographed wall, you need to see it!! The view from our room was off the charts. We overlooked Lake Luzern and the Swiss Alps. Be sure to enjoy...

We spent a few days at the gorgeous Schweizerhof as a part of our pre-cruise extension in Lucerne. The moment we arrived we were greeted by friendly and accommodating staff. The location was quite impressive and we were overwhelmed by the grandeur of this old hotel. Our room was in the newer section, however did have a magnificent partial view...

We were booked into the beautiful Schweizerhof as part of a post river cruise tour group for two nights in December. We were immediately impressed by its location overlooking Lake Lucerne and with wonderful views of the Alps. The hotel itself is a grand old building ideally situated for exploring the quaint city of Lucerne. Close to the main shopping...

A wonderful place and it could have been a perfect escape but the overall impression is draged down since the cleaning staff systematically igonred their work. We have stayed in 5 star hotels in the wide world but never seen this carless cleaning before. You expect way more in a 5 star hotel. We stayed at the hotel for 3...

A definite five star hotel with five star treatment. Such a treat to learn of the various celebrities that had occupied the very same rooms. Immense history, yet well maintained with a modern finish in the rooms. Excellent service from the staff at reception. Ideally situated. Could not ask for a better location. Very neat. However, breakfast is very basic...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Empathy & Excellence at Lucerne's Festival Hotel: Situated near the Old Town and directly on the shore of Lake Lucerne, the Hotel Schweizerhof Luzern is only stepy away from all major points of interest, the KKL, severing shopping facilities and the railway station. The house, since 1861 owned by the family Hauser, offers a spectacular view over the lake and the Swiss Alps. We are welcoming you with award-winning rooms and suitss where the Schweizerhof-history comes alive. However, the design of our rooms is only part of the overall concept: every single guest rooms also tells a story about the visits of famous people such as writers, musicians or actors to the Hotel Schweizerhof Luzern. The 2 restaurants 'Pavillon' and 'Galerie' make for culinary highlights, the trendy Schweizerhof Bar delights hotel guests as well as local pedestrians with daily live music. 9 Different function rooms, concierge service, parking garage, fitness-corner, business-corner and free WiFi. ... more   less
