4/5 Good

Chateau Gutsch is unlike anywhere I’ve stayed before & a very peculiar hotel that just happened to work well for part of our honeymoon. We stayed in the Junior Suite Majorelle, a moorish attic room with peakaboo views. While pretty, there’s a feeling of kitsch, novelty, & relative neglect in the hotel. Dirty tile floors in the restaurant, standoffish staff, dead insects on the windowsills, no decent tv options or dependable wifi. Upon checking in for a 5 night stay, we were wished “good luck” by the front desk. 😕 The building itself is just cool regardless. Next door, in addition to the hill-climbing funicular, is a rather creepy sculpture park which I can only imagine belonging at Burning Man, and for which they once astonishingly charged an entry fee for, but no more. Of particular interest is a series that unskilfully highl mass murderers and perpetuators of genocide. There’s a huge flashing heart that is missing chunks of its facade on the backside that I found to be just depressing. However there were plenty of other positive things which offset the bad. We ordered room service one night which was actually quite good. We also felt like we had a ton of privacy because nobody was on our floor. THE VIEWS are absolutely incredible. I love the location too - far away from the hoards of tourists. And while the room was dusty and a little cob-webby and the towels/sheet service wasn’t great, they withheld alcohol from our mini fridge after we explaine

Our first stay in a castle was magical. Looking over the city, the free tram up the hill saved our legs after lots of walking. The pass we received for all types of public transportation made getting around the town easy. The buffet breakfast and the bar setting were also noteworthy. With everything in the mini-bar coming free plus the inclusive breakfast and cheap parking, the cost of staying was not as high as it may seem.

Chateau Gütsch is an incredible place to stay in Lucerne -- with beautiful panoramic views of the city and old town, lake, and old city wall and towers. The unique architecture of the building and interior design make your stay a memorable experience. The food in the restaurant is excellent and the outdoor patio with city view is such a relaxing place to enjoy it. The staff -- especially Simone and Murielle in reception and Michael at the bar -- were so friendly and welcoming that it made my stay unforgettable. I hope to stay here again in the future! Try their tiramisu!

Property was beautiful, excellent view from Room 35 of Lucern. Very accessible to the city using the elevator down that takes you down the hill. We enjoyed Drinks in the bar, our breakfast, and staff were all very nice.
