Here are my top recommendations for Hotels in Lucerne based off places I've stayed or places I would like to stay in the future! I always like to book my hotels and accommodations as early as possible because I find the rates are usually better well in advance (meaning 6+ months out) and then I can book and forget about it until closer to the departure date. I also always book places with free cancellation in case my plans change or I find a better deal elsewhere or last minute. Free Wi-Fi is a must for me and location is key. I typically start with a landmark or neighborhood I want to stay around and then compare hotels in that area. In general, Lucerne hotels can be expensive, so keep that in mind as you go through this guide. Start with Luxury Traveler Picks for $$$$ and go all the way down to find Budget Recommendations for $.
If you're looking for a larger space or a more local experience, check out Air BNB, or Home Away for apartment and home rentals. If you're backpacking or looking for a free or cheap place to stay, check out Hostel World or Couch Surfing.
