Grand Hotel Europe may not be the nr. 1 luxury hotel in Lucerne - it's not pretending to be one - but having been in the business since 1870'ies (!) it can offer an unforgettable "Grand Hotel" experience on affordable price. We flew in to Zürich, took the direct train connection to Luzern station and then bus nr. 6 to... More

My sister and I visited September20-22 and arrived exhausted. We were shown to a room directly facing a construction site in full swing. Pile drivers, jack hammers enough that the very room was shaking and the noise unbearable. When I asked for another room I was advised that any other room would cost $100. Per night more. Odd since the... More

We stayed here for 4 days as a jumping off place for driving around Switzerland. That was a perfect idea! The front of the house staff was helpful and friendly. The bar staff went out of their way to make a late dinner panini! We had a spacious front facing room with a water view. They have a very tiny... More

We visited on a Tour for two nights - the hotel was clean, and staff very friendly. It was convenient to the city center and offered a great walk along the Lake Lucerne. We'd welcome staying here on our own planned travel in the future.

The hotel was clean and our room was well appointed. The Hotel is old and a little dated, but the rooms were more modern in style. I generally like old world charm of older hotels as long as they are well maintained and tastefully updated with modern conveniences. The Grand Hotel Europe did not disappoint. All meals in the restaurant... More

Room was small and there was not much amenities. Breakfast service was poor except for a helpful asian lady (from Hong Kong). Will not stay there again! I am surprized that the owners of the hotel let the staff run amok!

I've stay with my friends in Hotel Europe for 1 night in July 2016. It's really nice hotel and good location with wonderful view. I love so much flower garden in front of hotel. Room is so so, breakfast is quite good. But we enjoyed so much.

An old building which transform into a Hotel but kept in a very good condition. Staff there are friendly and helpful. A bit distance to the shopping area but can take a slow stroll there along the river side. Close to Casino too for those who wish to play a handful of games there.

Spent a night at the hotel and absolutely enjoyed it. Built almost 150 years ago, the hotel has been modernized yet it still retains its old world charm. We've arrived at the hotel very early (around 10-ish), but fortunately for us, our rooms were ready to be checked in. All of the staff in the hotel were friendly and ready... More
