Mandarin Oriental Palace, Luzern

A flamboyantly grand yet intimate grande dame with huge red-velvet-draped windows looking out to the Rhine. Don’t miss the three-Michelin-starred restaurant serving vivacious Mediterranean-international cuisine, and drinks in the bar while a pianist with a penchant for tweed plays Handel and Bach. Right on the river, with views of industrial ships belching across the water, and sounds of saxophonists performing on the bridge. It’s in the centre of town, four minutes’ walk from the Rathaus, eight minutes on foot to Basel Minster and five minutes to the Museum der Kulturen and the Natural History Museum. It’s a boutique city hotel where life revolves around the triple-Michelin-starred restaurant, waterfront terrace and bar. The gym in the basement has large riverside windows offering splendid treadmill views. Service is refined and prompt on reception and refreshingly attentive at breakfast. Some might feel that there is a slight lack of warmth here; service delivered with curt smiles rather than Disney grins. Opt for a river-fronted room; they come with small terraces overlooking the water, and have enough room for a table and couple of chairs. Interiors are flamboyant: think scarlet Baroque-patterned wallpaper and bundles of fresh roses. Read More...
