A very Grand hotel, beautiful and close to everything. I would highly suggest this hotel. Staff were very helpful and the waitstaff exceptional. Loved being so close to the water and walking along with the shops and outdoor cafes. Wonderful trip.

Just returned from Lucerne, Switzerland where we had stayed in this magnificent hotel for 4 nights. The Grand Hotel National was selected by our travel agent - and this beautiful hotel was a home run! I can see why it was named among the top 500 hotels in the world. The restaurants attached to the hotel are exceptional as well....

Very expensive but excellent quality especially if you can afford the lake view upgrade! Clean well maintained but basic rooms too small therefore not worth the money Breakfast not included despite the upgrade and at that price anywhere in the world you would get better service It is Switzerland after all!

We spent 8 nights in Switzerland and had amazing accommodations every night except for when we stayed at the Grand Hotel National. When booking we must have made a mistake by only selecting one adult in the room. When we got their their response was " we have a MAJOR problem on our hands"...not what we expected.

Dear Jeff L First of all, we would particularly like to thank you for taking the time to share your honest feedback with us.

This is the 3rd time we have stayed at this luxurious hotel. The rooms are like being in a palace. From the beautiful decor to the huge size of the room and bathroom. We were lucky enough to be on the lake side and the views were amazing. Staff very friendly. Location ideal.
