Across the street from the train station, this hotel is a short walking distance to museums, restaurants, Lake Luzern, the old city and other tourist spots. Good size clean rooms with excellent sound insulation (light sleepers should request a room facing the inner courtyard). Front desk personnel and other staff were courteous and most helpful; breakfast was adequate. Starbucks afficionados... More

We stayed at the hotel Alphina. which is next to the Monopol. At first glance we thought that the hotel looked a bit run down and old fashioned. but changed our minds when we saw the room. Very spacious, bright and cheerful. We had our breakfast at the Monopol which was great. The hotel was in a great position, very... More

We very much enjoyed our four night stay at the Hotel Monopol. You can get to the front door from the train station in only a few steps. On Sunday's and holidays you have access to all of the shops and restaurants in the train station (there are a lot) when nearly everything else in the city is closed. It's... More

Fabulous location close to city centre, river, train station, shopping and activities. Rooms were small and old fashioned but clean and tidy with pleasant furnishings. No air conditioning but a pedestal fan provided. Breakfast very basic but a great rooftop bar with outstanding views over the city.

Very nice hotel, but needs an A/C. I checked in at late night and there was a guy called Iman he was very polite and helpful. He did everything he could to make us feel at home. It's a good place to stay, in wide rooms and clean toilets. But as I said it needs air conditions.

Great Hotel Location next to the Train station but very overpriced. The breakfast is okay. But high season are definitely over priced. Low Season are reasonable but thats only during weekdays. Definitely good hotel as the last resort. Try booking corner rooms as they are larger than standard rooms.

A warm welcome at reception; good room size (standard); fantastic location opposite Lucerne train station and within very easy walking distance to the river and restaurants; nice buffet breakfast; a very grand building.

We began our honeymoon here at the Hotel Monopol in Luzern for 3 nights. First, our only negative. The hotel are very up front about the lack of AC and we completely respect that. However,as we discovered, a fan provided in a large room is unfortunately just not a sufficient replacement for air conditioning. We found the room very warm... More

We stayed two nights in Lucerne at this hotel with a stay somewhere else in between. Both rooms we had were upgraded and magnificent. There is no air conditioning due to it being a heritage building but our rooms had fans that worked perfectly well. This is a beautiful old building, terrific staff that were always smiling and happy to... More
