despite you need to take a bus from the main train station at luzern, the view is good , can see the swiss alps mountain and the lake. Breakfast is great and fresh. bathroom are rather well equipped. heaters are working well during winter. i would say if i come back to switzerland again, i would like to book this hotel.

Room Tip: choose the non-forest room.

We stayed at Seeburg hotel during the holiday season and the decorations were really impressive. The suite were we stayed was absolutely fantastic and the view breathtakingly beautiful as well. Everything was spotlessly clean and beautiful, room very large and staff friendly at the reception. The breakfast was pretty good as well. The location of the hotel is beautiful, a bit far from downtown but the bus stops right in front of the hotel so it was easy to go to the beautiful downtown of Lucerne and back. We truly enjoyed our stay and this beautiful hotel and our amazingly beautiful ans stylish suite! Definitely worth a try and we'd love to go back one day!

The location was excellent and the hotel upgraded us to lake view room. The view of the lake from the room was fantastic. The hotel staff is very hospitable. It taste like super class asian hospitality as in the five stars hotels in Asia.

However the hotel is old and need renovation to match the quality of location and staff hospitality.

Room Tip: Lake view room in winters is the best bargain. Summers will be hot in the room as the room does not...

Dear Seeburg-Guest

Thank you very much for your kind feedback. We always try our best that our guests feel welcome.

We know that the building seeburg 61 is in a condition that should be renovated. Last February we have realized the renovation of the standard rooms with lake view including a soft renovation of the bathrooms. This february and march we are renovating the standard rooms without lake view, the corridors and the elevator will be replaced. The complete renovation of the seeburg 61 building is already in planning and will be carried out between the next 2 to 4 years.

It is a pleasure to hear that you were satisfied with our services and you have spent a pleasant stay with us.

Looking forward to welcoming you again in our hotel we send you best regards from Luzern.

I was a bit concerned when earplugs were included with the bath amenties; however, Hotel Seeburg was a wonderful facility. Our room was much larger than expected and had an amazing view of the lake. A nice fruit plate with chocolates was placed in our room upon arrival and bottled water was left in the room each evening. We stayed during the holiday season and the facility was beautiful. The staff both at reception and in the restaurant were top notch.

On the down side, the property is located several miles outside of town and one must take the bus back and forth, which is not terribly inconvenient but does not make wandering around the lovely cafes and shops easily accessible in the evening after dinner. The bus stop is immediately in front of the hotel and daily bus passes for 6 CHF may be purchased from the front desk. Also, housekeeping never removed our used glasses and plates from our rooms. We had a nice stack upon check out.

The included breakfast buffet provided plentiful options and the coffee was outstanding.

I never did use those earplugs....

Room Tip: Request a room in the renovated side facing the lake. We stayed in room 614.

Probably the most light up hotel in Lake Lucern but therefore the easiest to find.

A 22 CHF taxi ride from the HBF which at the time seemed expensive but over the course of our stay seemed cheap in Lucern.

The hotel is just superb. Clean large rooms with high quality linen and bathroom amenities. A huge buffet breakfast in the morning will make sure you won't be hungry till dinner! Adding to that the hotel restaurant is outstanding in quality and service we had dinner here our first night as we arrived here late. The 3 course meal was a bit pricey but definitely worth while. Check in was a breeze. Make sure to grab enough wifi cards for all your deceives and ask about bus tickets at the reception as they sell all day passes.

It was overall a great stay and we would be back if we ever come to Lake Lucern again!

I was afraid at first when looking at a map that this hotel was too far out of town, but you can buy a bus pass all day for 6 CHF. The bus stop is 10meters outside the hotel and it runs on schedule. After a 10-15 minute bus ride your in town... No big deal.

The hotel itself was more really nice. Our room had a lake view which I recommend. Our room looked to be remodeled recently as everything looked newish. You wake up seeing the lake with the mountains in the back ground, truly remarkable. The staff was extremely friendly, the breakfast was great, and the Internet was pretty quick. With free parking to boot which is hard to beat. I see no reason to even look for another hotel if we go back to Lucerne. I will be staying at the Hotel Seeburg again!

Comfortable, though a little tired Swiss hotel overlooking a beautiful lake with swans and the occasional boat. There is a bus stop right outside so easy to travel into the town centre. The staff are polite and efficient and help in any way they can. I heard that the hotel is up for sale now, at 30 million euros as there is a lot of land round it so the new owners can modernise it and make good use of the land around. A big plus at this hotel is the buffet breakfast with a wide selection of cereals, cheeses, eggs etc and champagne at weekends.

Room Tip: The 'new' part of the hotel had more modern rooms.
