“Classic, elegant hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2014 via mobile

Stayed for three nights with my wife and two daughters on the fifth floor overlooking Lake Lucerne. What an incredible view!

On arrival, staff greeted us in a very professional and friendly manner and two of them showed us to our rooms. They couldn't do enough to make us feel more welcome. Rooms are large, comfortable, and have most amenities one needs.

All staff were kind and courteous but I have to give special thanks to Boris the concierge who helped make our stay in Lucerne such a memorable one. He offered great advice on attractions and restaurants and was always so willing to answer any questions we had.

The hotel is perched on a hill but has a very convenient funicular that provides easy access to the lakefront promenade. It is only a 10 minute walk to the old town.

The "Beach Club" on the second floor has a nice bar and patio area and is great for a drink overlooking the lake and the town. It also has a hot tub to relax in.

Finally, there is the restaurant, Scala. It is a true gem that must not be missed if visiting Lucerne, whether you are a hotel guest or not. The views of the lake and town are breathtaking and the room itself is beautiful. Menu and wine list are superb as is the service. Try the Luma beef - so delicious!

Overall, an outstanding hotel.

Amazing view on the lake... Superb terrasse for a drink and at the restaurant for a nice romantic dinner at night and breakfast in the morning... Very calm and the service is very friendly! They still have real keys for the doors but it makes it even more charming. The funiculaire to the city is very convenient and fast. Perfect!

Approaching the hotel via the rear street, you do not get the true impression of this hotel. Slightly disappointed not to be met at this entrance by someone who took your bags or showed you to the reception, one floor down. Reception was strait forward and staff were very pleasant and helpful. Our room wasn't quite ready, so we enjoyed an excellent lunch at the Beach Cafe.
The Art Deco style room on the 4th floor was excellent, with a stunning view over the town and the lake. Like most Swiss hotels, it would have benefitted from air conditioning.
We ate in the Scala restaurant which was very busy and couldn't fault the food. Table was a bit at the back so couldn't really see the view. Breakfast at CHF25 is expensive, but good range of food and you could ask for freshly made speciality coffees. Glass of Prosecco is a nice touch.
My test of a good hotel is whether I would go back - in this case, I definitely would.

Room Tip: Take a room facing the lake

The hotel is far from the center and the funicular is no special treat; there is no view from it. There is only one elevator serving the entire hotel so you could either wait forever or walk. While the room views are nice, the decor is so dated and unattractive it deters from the view. There is no AC so it's hot but if you open the windows, the street noise is terrible. The hotel has a vibrant night life. I would avoid staying here. The photos make it look much better than it is.

Room Tip: Ask for a corner room without carpeting which is dated and unattractive.

Dear Christine

We are sorry for not fullfilling you expectations. One correction: There are two elevators. Most of our guests appreciate the funicular which takes you down to the lake and the 5-10 minutes walk to the center is regarded as bearable.

We wish you all the best!

We stayed two nights from the 5/8/2014. We had a junior suite (room 308). The room had two balconies with fantastic views over the lake. We had breakfast (not included) both days which was excellent (CHF 25 per person). On the second night we had dinner in the Scala restaurant which was also excellent. I would definitely recommend this hotel if staying in Luzern.

This was our second stay at Art Deco and again it was wonderful. We love this hotel. The location is good, the views spectacular, the service excellent. We opted to a junior suite on this stay and it was fabulous. We were pleasantly surprised with a jacuzzi on our balcony. This is the only hotel we will stay at when we visit Lake Lucerne. Don't miss it!

As others have said, this is a stylish and beautiful hotel that is immaculately presented. Staff were by and large friendly and very helpful. We were a walk in and opted for a lake view room, but received a free upgrade to a junior suite, which was stunning in its beauty and functionality. Unlike other reviews, we found the room to be very quiet, especially when the shutters were lowered. Free undercover parking for our motorcycle was much appreciated, as was the use of the funicular (yes they used that word) to get down to the main street and back. Dinner in the Scala restaurant was fabulous, with the quality of the food matching the breath taking views. Breakfast selection was excellent with plenty of quality fresh fruit, great bread selection and all the trappings you would expect from a European breakfast and more. Highly recommended and we will stay again when we are next in Luzern.

Room Tip: Pay teh extra for a lake view, it is spectacular.
