Up and on our way by 7.45am. Bye bye, Lucerne. Driving through fog this morning. Went through Zurich... .... ( Hey. Me. Seeing Zurich ! ) Very pretty. Lots and lots of the coloured buildings. On to the Rhine Falls. Very foggy and misty. Wonderful look. Saw the boats, Mum. Watched one go right up to the base of the falls Can see why you were trying to stay away from the falls in the ...
... night. I was a little sceptical, but it was really nice..5 benches in a colleagues backyard, all his friends and neighbours, a donkey in close proximity..lol..of course....and.. lots of fondue. Very easy to make I learned. It comes in boxes (packages), just add some wine and I think that's it..? heat, stir and serve! Even the traditional fondue has been box-ed and is ever so convenient for the masses of Swiss folk. It was a special evening ...
... the banks of beautiful lake Lucerne where the river opens into the lake. Our first stop was the famous old Chapel Bridge at Lucerne with its large tower. The water running through the town was clear and turquoise blue, like many of the rivers in Switzerland. We continued to walk around town as Jermaine wanted to look for a knife to take to Lauterbrunnen with him the following day. We walked into this vintage shop and found a few good trinkets, however could not justify ...
... the 1500s, this famous bridge has been destroyed numerous times as a result of war. The last time it was destroyed was during WWII. The bridge holds tremendous meaning to the residents of the city and was again rebuilt. It is a wooden pontoon-type bridge. At one end of the bridge is a building riddled with bullet holes from the war. The holes have been left there for all to see as ...
... the room, we went to the lobby to use the internet. There is also only one outlet in the room, in the bathroom. I charged most of our stuff while we sat in the lobby. Dmitriy did some work, while I uploaded the blogs I had finished on the train. We got hungry for dinner pretty early, so we left at 5pm to start looking for a place to eat. I had looked up some pizza/gyro shops. That is the common combination for some reason. We started walking to the area where two of them ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Art Deco Hotel Montana Luzern Lucerne
Checked in at the last minute. We had actually planned to stay on top of Mt Rigi to watch the sunrise but cancelled due to poor weather.
I've stayed at this hotel twice and I am planning to return. The hotel staff is top-notch. The rooms on the lake side all have a spectacular view of the lake as well as the city. The hotel is located in a residential area on a hillside away from the crowds and noise of town and can be accessed either by a funicular that will take you almost to the promenade on the lake shore, or by a steep road if feel the need for some brisk exercise. The town is just a short walk either way. The rooms are decorated in someone's quirky intrpretation of Art Deco. If you are tall make sure you arrange for a room with a tall bed. I was forewarned of this. A generous breakfast is served and in warmer weather you can enjoy it on the patio which has a great view. The bar features jazz music and if you are a scotch afficianado this is the place to come for a drink. I've been told there are better hotels in Luzern but I don't think there would be any as memorable.
My partner and I recently spent two nights at the Art Deco Montana and it was a wonderful stay. The hotel is situated on a small hill about a block away from the lake, which provides a nice, elevated view of the city. From the street level below, you take a funicular up to the lobby of the hotel. Very cool indeed.
Great views and location!!!
We loved this hotel! Excellent location. Make sure you book a room with a lake view....it is fabulous!! You are up high over looking everything. Easy walk to shopping and the train station.
The Montana's prime location on a hillside overlooking Lake Lucerne and neighboring Alps makes a stay at this hotel worthwhile. During our recent stay the weather turned warm which resulted in extremely uncomfortable conditions - no air conditioning and an onslaught of mosquitoes. When staff were contacted they stated "This never happens..." yet the in-room hotel information mentions mosquitoes and how to avoid them! They do offer to provide electric fans if you are willing to pay a deposit, which we found a bit insulting. Were we actually going to try to pack the fan and take it with us when we left?
We stayed at this hotel for our wedding (which was at a castle outside of Luzern). It could not have been more romantic. It has an amazing view of the city, lake and mountains. The buffet breakfasts (included) were fantastic, with a great variety of European foods. The restaurant was likewise excellent--one of the best meals I have ever had (but be forewarned, it is not cheap). We had a junior suite, and it was nicer than suites I've had at 4-star hotels stateside. The staff is worthy of such a great hotel; the concierge arranged for fishing tackle and licenses for some of our wedding party that wanted to fish. The hotel is a short walk from downtown, but you can grab a bus at the base of the hotel's incline tram; the buses go by every 15 minutes or so. We will never stay anywhere else in Luzern.
Great location marred by two tier dining and rooms.
The half board dining area in greenhouse conditions
was to the rear of public a la carte.The restricted
menu included "paella" as one of two main course
choices on one dinner menu.This was treated as the deliberate insult it appeared.Reception was blamed for its inclusion and assurances that future
guests were not offered "paella"as an evening dinner choice.
One of the two identically priced rooms had "shower
only" facilities whereas the the other had a large
The overall effect was thus spoilt by the two tier
treatment highlighted by the unrestricted breakfast
table options as opposed to the above when we did not dine a la carte.

Stunning Views and Wonderful Food
Wonderful views from almost any room. I've stayed there three times now and am surprised by the value for the money. Restaurant is expensive but a wonderful reward after a long hard day of work. Wines choices are wonderful. Hotel staff is very attentive and trained in customer service. The only reason I didn't give it an excellent rating is that I was there during Switzerlands hottest summer and hotel had no AC. VERY warm.
When can we go back?
The decor in our large standard en suite room (facing road) was modern and very comfortable. Gorgeous bathroom. Weather report, new towels to replace damp ones and chocs with the turndown service. Fantastic views of Lake Lucerne from the breakfast room.The hotel bar is home to regular live jazz and is cosy in decoration, although actually quite large. Comfy chairs and candles. Loved the funicular lift which takes you from the middle of the hotel to the lake shore.5 mins walk from Lucene centre. Parking a bit sparse but available. Staff very helpful and friendly. I could move in to the Hotel Montana!
