The service was very good, with an extremely helpful staff. We had a very early checkout before breakfast but the night manager set us up with a to go breakfast at 4AM. The hotel was clean, with a spacious room in an excellent location in the city at a fair price.

Simple to find in the dark late at night, the Waldstätterhof is an ideal place to stay for a trip to Lucerne. The room was an adequate size, clean and well equipped. The wifi was good, reasonably strong and quick,the bed comfortable, and the bath was nice. Breakfast the next day from the buffet (included w/my room) was excellent, good... More

Whilst on a three centre holiday in September, our last three nights were spent at the Hotel Waldstatterhof in Lucerne. Arriving by the excellent Swiss Railway network the hotel is situated opposite the station - less than a two minute walk from the entrance. We had booked an executive room and this was located streetside opposite the station - but... More

This hotel looks like a church. It is lovely. The rooms are great. You have a big old fashioned key so leave it of course. It was a kick to see the red plaid lit headboard. It was quiet on the street side. The breakfast is lovely as well. Would stay there any time again. So close to the train... More

I stayed here in October 2016 with my family. The hotel was fantastic and easily accommodated our family of 4. The breakfast buffet was outstanding. The hotel was centrally located to everything so you can walk to anything. It is also very close to the train station.

Large room for an economy single, bigger than an "executive double" in London on the way there! Four foot bed, plenty of floor space, desk, small balcony with chairs and table. Good free wifi. Ample free breakfast. Friendly reception staff with excellent English. Great location opposite railway station but rooms at the back are very quiet. And all just yards... More

This was our second time visiting a lovely hotel with their attentive staff.The hotel is superbly located in central Lucerne, steps from the main railway station and beautiful Lake Lucerne. Especially arriving by train, you walk 2 minutes and you're at the hotel. It's a 5-minute walk to the big lake, where great views and boat trips await. The assistant... More

You will get tongue-tied trying to mention your hotel destination in Lucerne. Hey, but this one does not offer any pretenses; they are honest enough to admit they are a three-star hotel (unlike a recent stay in Las Vegas where it was all show and no substance). Judging from the façade, you’d think this is a classic hotel. This is... More

We chose the Hotel Waldstatterhof because of its location right next to the train station. That was a major plus for us as we were doing day trips by train from Lucerne. The hotel is nice, nothing special - clean, seemingly well-run (although the front desk seemed a bit chaotic at times), with a good breakfast buffet. That said, if... More

As other reviews state the hotel is in an ideal position for the station & walking around Lucerne. The bed was comfortable & nice to have a kettle. However housekeeping was a little slack, as coffee etc was not topped up & bed making seemed to consist of just folding the duvet back, as the pillows were just as squashed... More
