Hotel Waldstatterhof

Good modern and clean hotel. It's located next to the train station and near to the chapel bridge and the old town area. Being near to the train station also makes the amenities in the station conveniently available to you - eateries, COOP and retail.

Rooms are modern with comfy pillows and beds. I stayed in a room overlooking MacDonalds and the main street. However, I did not get much noise from the street that would disturb sleep. The room also had shutters which rolls down to further cut down noise and sunlight.

The bathing area was a little narrow - kept knocking into the glass panels. The hotel does not have free wifi which is a letdown. For free wifi, try MacDonalds or Starbucks which are a stone's throw away. No complains about the breakfast too.

This is simply a nice hotel, nothing too fancy. The situation is excellent, close to the historic city centre (a short walk away) and right in a commercial street. Parking available. The hotel is quite expensive for what it offers, taking into account of course that in Switzerland everything is expensive.

This place is across the road from Railway station and yet quiet. Close to Lucerne's topmost attractions and very convenient to use as a base and explore the beauty of Switzerland.

This is not a chain hotel and that was a welcome experience. It retained its charm in places and yet provided all modern amenities. A very pleasant stay.

The hotel is located just across the central main train station and the old town is to be reached in short walking distance.
I stayed there before an exam at the University of applied science Lucerne, which is right across the street of the hotel.
The room was modern and quite new. It was clean, the bed comfortable and no noise was detected (room was not on the street side).
Breakfast typical central european style, nice choice of fresh fruits as well as warm breakfast (eggs, bacon, ...).
The hotel is good value for money and it's one of the cheaper ones in this area without getting less quality, comfort or service than in the higher priced ones.
I would return there anytime if I need an accommodation for one or a few days in the future.
Hotel staff is very friendly and helpful. I asked for a beer to take up into my room and there was no problem, I got it in the hotel own restaurant.

My husband and I stayed here for our Lucerne visit and we thought it was great. It is located right next to the train station so it's easy to find and convenient if you're traveling by train. The room was spacious, clean, and modern. The customer service was also great.

I stayed here for a night (March 23-24) with my wife, we both were very happy with the location, service and quality of room/shower.
The hotel is just near the entrance of Luzern train station/Tourist office and chapel bridge.
The rate was slightly on the higher side (CHF175), but that is how it is with almost all the Swiss hotels, so no complaint.

Shower cabin was slightly on the smaller side, so every time I am having shower, i get hit on the panels, again not a major factor to worry.

Only small complaint, regarding the beds, we had booked for a double room for two, the room was having two single beds together which moved while sleeping, this was little nuisance to us. It should have been a single double bed in a double room...

But said so, the hotel is a very convenient location. We requested for an early check-in, which was accepted without any hesitation.

No free internet is a drawback, which the hotel needs to look into.

Seeing smiling team at the reception makes happy!!

All over we had a great stay!!
