Waldstaetterhof Swiss Quality Lucerne Hotel
Travel Blogs from Lucerne
Sadly we said au revoir to France today and crossed the border into Switzerland around lunch time. We'll need to recover after all the cheese and crusty bread we had in France and have our cholesterol checked on our return! And every second person smokes in France which took a bit of getting used to :)

Wow, if there is one city everyone should go to to see the Alps, it's Lucerne. There's four or five different mountains, easily rechable from Lucerne. I went up Mount Pilatus, which is a train or boat ride to the foot of the mountain, then a train that goes up most of the way, where you can get off and hike for a bit, and then take a train up the …
Driving to Italy from Brussels is a 12 hour adventure. So we knew that we would have to find a halfway point to stop and rest. We had been to Switzerland over Christmas and really enjoyed it so we chose another Swiss city - Lucerne. The view of the Swiss Alps from Lucerne is particularly awesome. We could not get over the beauty of the landscape. …
Another day, another mountain to climb. Where on the previous day Belinda and I began with the ascent of Pilatus we were now preparing ourselves for Rigi. We once again enjoyed breakfast at the hotel, rushing a little to ensure that we left in time for the 10:32am ferry from the Bahnhofquai. As it was such a short walk away we ended up arriving at …
Saturday began with more blog updating on the free internet while Belinda got ready for the day. Breakfast was followed by us unpacking my case and filling it with our dirty laundry, including our Tower of Terror shirts that we had alread been wearing proudly for a few days. We headed out to a nearby laundromat that we had identified the previous …

Historical Traveler Reviews Waldstaetterhof Swiss Quality Lucerne Hotel
Great moderate priced hotel in Lucerne
Stayed at the Waldstaetterhof 2 nights in early October, 2005. Super location, just across from the train station and a block or so from the Chapel Bridge, etc. Price is reasonable for this location. Good clean rooms, decent size, with comfortable beds. Front desk staff is friendly and helpful. Convenient private parking area available, though at extra charge. Nice restaurant in the hotel, and the included breakfasts provided a good selection of foods. The only downside is they don't serve alcohol, so you can't enjoy a beer or a glass of wine with your dinner. We would definitely stay here again.
Very lovely and modern hotel
This hotel is unexpectedly modern, clean, lovely, quiet and convenient. The restaurant is very comfortable and its kitchen is extremely clean (I walked into the kitchen asking for a pot of hot water with automatic door and the kitchen was better than mine!) My spouse can use wireless internet for free. What's more, the hotel could accommodate my request to swap the day of my stay without any additional charge due to the bomb attack in UK. I and my spouse could not find any problems with the hotel. We loved the hotel and highly recommend it.
It's a centrally located hotel. very close to the railway station. We enjoyed our 3 nights stay at the hotel. The reception staff was very cooperative. The rooms & bathrooms were clean.
Very good hotel
This hotel seems to have been recently redecorated and had a nice decor. The room was well furnished and you could see Pilatus out the window.
The location was excellent right across the road from the railway station and also very close to the river and the old town.
The service was also very good and they had a cooked hot breakfast.
Good budget hotel
We stayed recently at this hotel. It was quite central (next to the railway station). The lakeside and main tourist attractions are nearby. The reception & lobby are in a modern design style. A good renovation work in general (old building but the interior is completely refurbished in modern style).
We had a "best available upon check-in" room. It was clean but really the basic hotel room. Two bottles of water on the table had a "4 CHF" label on them, not very friendly.
The only problem is the noice. As it's near the railway station, there is quite a lot of traffic in the adjacent streets. Unfortunately the room is very badly isolated.
Breakfast is just fine, have seen much better ones.
I stayed in a standard room, which is just about average. Bathroom was quite clean, seemed new actually. I stayed for 2 days, however on the first day, the hot water seemed to run out. Had to wait for a half hour before it came back. Second day was ok. I liked the interior of the hotel, it's done in contemporary style, including the dining area. Should have stayed in the designer room instead. Breakfast was good, ham and cheese, bacon and eggs.
To me, the reception was friendly and quite helpful. No discrimination (I'm non-european). But it's true that they're staring at their PC most of the time.. the reception desk is too high - they can't see people coming and going. Not a good design for a hotel.
I stayed 1 night in Waldstatterhof in Luzern in September.as I had read many good comments about this hotel on this HP.But it was not good hotel.
A good budget hotel
A pleasant surprise. I came across this hotel by chance (through its listing in the Swiss Quality Hotels booklet) and was very impressed. The lobby is plush and very modern. The room was good (clean, well appointed, reasonable bathroom) if not spacious. Even though it was inexpensive, by Lucerne's standards, it did not feel like a budget hotel. It is 1-2 blocks from the train station, but still an easy walk to most of the major tourist sites. It is also very close to the ferry docks for cruises up the lake. Next door is the Hotel Monopol which has a popular nightclub/bar on its roof (called P1).
A Great Hotel
We stay at the Waldstaetterhof in Oct. 2003 and had a wonderful time!
The location is great, right in the middle of town near all the major activity. It's about 2 or 3 blocks from the train station, which made our early morning departure very convenient. The river and Chapel Bridge is near, as well as the beautiful Modern Art museum. The hotel was very quiet, the rooms comfortable and clean, and the staff unobtrusive and helpful. A great place overall!
Wonderful Designer Rooms Marked a Great Stay 1-2-03
My fiance and I enjoy hol about once a year in Europe so imagine our surprise when our expections in Amsterdam were less than met for the rate we'd paid. However, our hopes in independent hoteliers was revived when we stumbled upon the absolutely fabulous designer rooms at the Waldstaetterhof in Lucerne. Not only was the staff personable the room was quite a treat! The originality of the room can't be beat. Our hand painted back drop lit our evenings and the bay window overlooking the train station and city didn't let us down. We were more than happy with our stay and can't wait to trek our way back to this gem.
