It far exceeded my expectation it was literally across the road wonderful quiet room and amazing service from staff. The location was brilliant for the station but also right near the alt stadt the famous bridge and the river. It couldn't have...

To me this hotel was really the biggest deal as it had everything I needed in a hotel. Location was superb and it was just next to the hotel. Hotel staff were great in providing assistance when needed and even recommended certain places and sights to see. Room was always cleaned and kept tidy whenever we came back to our...

Starbucks on the first floor. Across the street, easily access to shopping areas. Great location, however the hotel is a bit run down. Overall will stay because of location. The rooms are standard, and view are generally nice if you are facing the city. Stayed there on 21 Dec as part of a central European trip.

The hotel is stones throw from lucerne railway station. The location is strategic and the lake view rooms give you a great snapshot of lucerne, its people and culture. The Hotel is in the heart of the city and hence makes a great location from all aspects. The rooms are spacious and well appointed. The service is great. The restaurant...

Monopol retains its heritage but with a modern day feel. The location is excellent adjacent to the rail station and easy walking to the shopping district, the staff totally professional and more than helpful with information and any request. Absolutely recommend to anyone travelling to Lucerne.....

After you make your way through the starbucks, you will find the lobby of the hotel. The check in was pleasant and the receptionist was knowledgeable. The elevator is very small. The floors creak like crazy. The carpet is old and dated. The bathroom smells like sewer and the pipes make loud noises all night long. The bed has a...

One of the few hotels that actually had connecting rooms which suited us because we had 2 rooms. However the lifts are so small, tiny even. One thing that I was not happy with, the discrimination during breakfast. Yes, we were on a package tour but this was the first (and unfortunately not the last) time that we were asked...

This hotel is right opposite the train station and boat hub, so an excellent location for travellers entering the city by these means. Although opposite the train station, the rooms are quite. The rooms are well equipped. We enjoyed the dresssing room, this was something a little bit different. Unfortunately on our second night, water leaked through the roof, but...
