“Probably the best in town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2013

We arrived in Altdorf after driving through the mountain valley from Zurich. Finding a hotel with parkinglot was a challenge, untill we found Hoefli. We were offered a room in the old part and one in the sidebuilding and decided to take the latter. THis turned out to be a good Choice. The room was spacious and had all the modern facilities we like, including free Wi-Fee.
As the weather had changed to heavy rain, we decided to have dinner in the hotel. That proved to be a good decision. We had delicious Swiss lamb , not overcooked, and delightful Swiss red wine. We Norwegians are spoiled with excellent lamb. This was second to none !
THe breakfast was also very good. If you want an egg, you need to ask for it. THe local bread was delecious!¨

Staff very friendly and polite !

If we ever return to Altdorf, this will be our hotell again ,although it was a bit pricy !

We have stayed here for over 20 years as a stopover enroute to Italy. Hanspeter and Maria provide a very clean, efficiently run and welcoming hotel. We have stayed in both the old and new block. The rooms are warm and comfortable with great duvets- especially when there is snow outside. Families may find the restaurant a little expensive to eat in but the Pizzeria is a favourite with local people. On our last visit we were stuck in terrible traffic in Lucerne and the hotel gave us travel info from a local website to let us know what was happening-we had been at a standstill for 90 minutes.

We stayed here on our trip back from Italy. They price for a family room is OK compared to the neighbouring hotels. They have a own parking lot, the have a good restaurant with very nice pizzas. The room was nice, big , clean, ... Onlu the second bed (Double for the kids) was kind of hard.

Breakfast was simple but good. Service was excellent and friendly.

Room Tip: For families with kids the family rooms are excellent.

This hotel was fine, and the room was large. There was no window to view the mountains and the main building only houses the restaurant. The restaurant was also average, but the food was rather buttery and underwhelming. I would recommend skipping Altdorf because the town doesn't offer very much but the prices are still high. I would say that you could stay in Gersau at Hotel Seehof or some of the other hotels in the area that offer views of Lake Lucerne.

I have visited Altdorf twice, both times in the Summer, staying in Hoefli. It's very reasonably priced and so central to Altdorf, it's perfect!
Both times I have driven down the UK in a single day, and being tired a hungry, the staff were swift with their service of checking in and ordering some food in the restaurant - their pizzas are a MUST!
The new wing is where I have stayed, and it's a delight, although I would recommend leaving a window open at night as it can get quite warm.
I will stay at this hotel when I return to Altdorf.

Room Tip: Ask for the new wing

New wing is definitely the preference, everything more spacious and comfortable. (We stayed 1 night in the "original" building and rom and bathroom were very, very cramped.) None of the rooms were air conditioned (cooling) so in the very warm summer evenings there was no respite. Wide open windows then lets in any street noise. Typical European, no in room tea/coffee facilities. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast and several evening meals were all very good. Our only surprise was the tariff per person, per night, puts it in the category of major centres, which suddenly took the value to average/poor.
Very pleasant town and base to explore this area of Switzerland.
