A very welcoming hotel near the Lake Lucerne

Posted Apr 18, 2017
Pros: Location. Staff. View.
Cons: NIL
A surprise upgrade from Deluxe Double to lifestyle suite by the hotel was really appreciated, it was a great experience during our anniversary trip. It was just a 7-8 mins walk from the Train Station with the supreme view for the lake. The room was spacious and clean with the musical instrument decoration.

Beautiful hotel with a Terrific location.

Exceptional Hotel with a terrific location. Very hospitable staff. Only one drawback is the rooms are a bit on the warm side with virtually no way to cool the room down with the exception of opening the windows. This in itself is not bad, but there is a fair amount of automotive traffic and activities outside that may disrupt some people's ability to get a good nights rest.

We had 6 couples in our group and traveled from the states and Canada to Luzern, Geneva. We stayed at the Schweizerhof in Luzern for the first 3 nights. The rooms were wonderful, the food was excellent and the service was impeccable! These folks really care what you think. My husband and i both enjoyed staying in this hotel.

The facade of the hotel is the perfect indicator.

The hotel is well polished on the outside and very inconsistent inside. This is a grand old hotel but doesn't feel like one. the pictures of the rooms were fine but the bathrooms were circa 1980 Marriott! My wife commented that they refurbished the rooms but ran out of money for the bathrooms. I went to the office centre to try to work but no AC (in August) and the computer was in German with nobody to help. A fly decided that it wouldn't leave me alone so I left. I went to the bar where there was nobody seemingly there to serve the tables even though it was lunch! As for the room one had the filthiest AC duct that I switched it off so as not to get Legionnaire's, a light was out in the bathroom as well. Also I have never stayed in a hotel (above 4*) where there was absolutely no amenities, no sowing kit, no cotton buds, even the tissues ran out after 3, I felt like the bathroom was Hotel Ibis! On the plus side the masseuse Anita was very nice and the room service was really above par so thanks for that. As for travelling with children no extra effort was made except upon leaving when they were given a toy, compare that with the Sofitel Munchen which gave bathrobes, slippers, cuddly toys and bathroom amenities... pretty poor for a so called Grand hotel.
