I spent 10 nights at the Palace Hotel in Lucerne, so I believe I can really review this fine place.
It is located right on Lake Lucerne about a 15 minute walk from the train station. My room was spacious and comfortable. Large bed, couch, sitting chair and table and TV. I had an unobstructed view of the lake. Very large bathroom with two big sinks and a large tub and separate shower and private toilet. The room had plenty of closets and a safe to store my valuables. Full central air conditioning for comfort. The room was quiet. A full buffet breakfast was available that came with the price of the room. At first I thought I was in Las Vegas when I saw the fabulous buffet. Service was great. I had no idea what sites I wanted to see and so I depended upon the staff at the Concierge Desk. They were incredible and gave me great places to visit and even what food to ask for when I got to the top of the mountain. They supplied me with individual train schedules and suggested appropriate times to make the fast train which translated into an unforgettable vacation.
Check in and check out was very efficient. This is clearly a 5 star hotel. The hotel has a nice lounge and bar area if you want to meet friends at the end of the day. They also have a full spa and fitness area. Not cheap. But nothing is inexpensive in Lucerne. I felt that I got value for my money.
I would definitely recommend this hotel. This is not a charming or quaint hotel. It is a luxurious Palace-right next door to the Casino if you decide to try your luck. It is right on the lake and a short walk to the famous bridge and shopping area. But what was really great was the fact that I used Lucerne as my base and because I had a Swiss Rail Pass I went everywhere. A great vacation where I didn't go from hotel to hotel-packing and unpacking.
