After Milan, Lucerne was the next city visited by COVETED. The entrance in Switzerland was characterized by the most green and white ambience ever. Laws, trees, and the snow on the top of the Alps shaped the landscape while we were approaching Lucerne.
Lucerne is located in the German-speaking portion of the country, and the Hotel Palace Luzern is set like a stately sentinel on the shores of Lake Luzern (der Vierwaldstättersee), with the Mount Pilatus and Rigi in the Swiss Alps as a background.
Although Lucerne has been for a long time a destination for tourists, Palace Luzern, due to its historical background, has been a legendary landmark of the city offering its guest a wealth old-world charm, for over 100 years.
For the past years, Palace Luzern has invested for the past years nearly 30 million Swiss francs in extensive modernization. Behind the hotel’s imposing neo-classic façade, there are a lot of suites and rooms radiating an elegant aesthetic, with the finest furnishings and fabrics. The decoration of the whole hotel reflects the most sophisticated and superior standards of the high-end clientele.
All the rooms of this lovely Hotel has its own unique character combining a contemporary interior design with a warm, cosy and airy space. The colour palate that can be found within the property has the influence of the close proximity of the Lake Luzern and the snow-capped peaks on the background.
Palace Luzern has 73 spacious rooms, 55 junior and deluxe suites, the Palace Suite and the exclusive Suite of Arts. Every single one of the rooms is bigger and either with a contemporary or classical style.
Wireless, telephone and private voicemail are standard amenities that the guests can find in every room. Many of them have their own terrace or balcony, with exclusive views over the Lake and Alps.
In the words of the Management, luxury “means more than having time. It also means having enough space to enjoy it”. And Palace Luzern has it all, the most luxury design suites and enough space within its rooms.
