Schweizerhof Review

Owned by the same family since 1861, this imposing structure has hosted Napoléon III, Leo Tolstoy, and Mark Twain—and Richard Wagner lived here while his lakefront home at Tribschen was being completed. The guest rooms all have sweeping views of the lake and mountains, and gilt mirrors, richly colored carpets, and marble-and-tile bathrooms cover all the luxury bases.

    Schweizerhof Review

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Schweizerhof.
    The hotel is well-located, and our room in front in the East Wing had a small balcony with a great view of the lake and city, including its famous historic bridge.
    The room was attractive with a comfortable bed. However, it was a fairly long trip from the main entrance of the hotel to our room in the East Wing.
    The breakfast buffet included in our room rate, was good, and we could special order egg dishes, which we did one morning.
    The staff was very friendly and efficient.
