Overview

The Review

The Post Hotel Weggis, a waterfront hotel on Switzerland’s Lake Lucerne, is a refreshing breath of cool in this normally staid mountain village. The property even has a nickname that sounds like a trendy neighborhood: PoHo.

{“type”:”img-inline”,”src”:”/static/images/product/properties/2944/prop-19138-1339613876-full.jpg”,”width”:”275″,”caption”:”The indoor swimming pool has clubby lighting that changes as you move.”}Which makes sense, because the hotel’s designers must have channeled the vibe of Zurich West in the planning stages. Zurich’s superhip gentrified factory district certainly pops into mind when you walk through the hotel’s bold, brash interiors, which are full of leopard-print carpets, tangerine walls and high-fashion art (prudes beware: The ladies in these striking canvases are close to nude). Some of the building’s original features do remain, such as the tiled staircase and glittery gold railings (the spot was formerly Weggis’s casino and, even further back, part of the post office).

Each of the 45 guestrooms teems with trendy electronics: flat-screen TVs, PlayStations and mind-boggling sound systems. Spacious and fitted with comfortable (but groovy) furniture, all the rooms sport lovely views of the city or lake.

Elsewhere, the spa (which features a fitness center and sauna) is a great place to relax after a day on the water or mountain, and the indoor pool changes colors as you swim, like some sort of psychedelic fantasy. PoHo’s Dining Lounge specializes in contemporary small plates ordered as three- or five-course meals, each arriving at the table like a work of art. We like the duck breast and bok choy served in what looks like a spilled tea cup.

Alternatively, in answer to the recent Swiss frenzy for traditional fare, the hotel opened Weggiser Stubli, a restaurant in a century-old building. There you can order such Swiss staples as fondue. And although Weggis isn’t known for nightlife, the hotel has two hopping bars to recommend it — one on a lakeside terrace and the other at water’s edge.

Disappointed ‼️

I stayed here in late October, and we selected this hotel for a more premium experience.

In summary I wouldn’t stay here again, as the hotel is looking tired and now appears focussed on bus tours rather than individual guests.

We also booked the meeting room, and it was difficult to communicate what we required. In the end we ate lunch outside of the hotel as there was no flexibility in the food offered.

I stayed at this hotel a few years ago and whilst the location is great (centre of Weggis) it needs some investment - the beds were uncomfortable and the gym is very tired.

There are many other better options in Weggis!

The room was spacious with an amazing view of the lake and the mountains, coffee machine, big balcony, and comfy clean bed.
The provides free fruit, drink and hot/cold water as well.

The pool was not working during my stay.

Very good

So when we first arrived here(we arrived yesterday)it was far from Zurich.My mom didn’t like the fact it was far,they also booked us in a room where I liked but my mom didn’t,for her it was dirty,had bad WiFi and it was small,she then told to move us to another room and they said they will do it,after breakfast we moved to a another room,my mom then started liking this hotel(she was also happy she moved rooms)and to be honest,I liked this hotel myself,I would recommend going there.
