I was very disappointed in the Monopol Hotel Lucerne after given the tiniest room on the entire floor. Other solo travellers got much bigger and better rooms...To top it off, the furniture in the room was so old and outdated, including the mattress which was so uncomfortable your body just sinks to the floor and you could feel the springs....

Mac Donald\s & Star Bucks in the same building ground floor, Hardees just opposite. Neat & Spacious rooms with Toilets with bath tub. BUT .... July it was really hot - NO Air-conditioning ( Excuse - Heritage Hotel ).... More

Visited last week when my football team were playing FC Lucerne. As already said location excellent for central Lucerne sights and for lake excursions and yards from the train station. Our room was very large including sofa and chairs. It was extremely warm on our visit and due to historical building there is no air con - whilst it was... More

We stayed at the triple room which is very specious, very clean and magnificent view of Lugano lake and the city from the window of our room 615. As an old building, there is no air-con in the old building but they provided 2 fan for us; we did not use them as the temperature was 25°c in July. -... More

We only stayed one night but wished it had been more. It is a beautiful old Hotel in excellent condition and well presented. No Air-conditioning as it is a heritage listed property but this did not create an issue at all for us as a fan is provided in the room. Daniela checked us in and what a delight she... More

We were travelling around Europe on the Eurail so the Hotel Monopol was in the perfect location right opposite the railway station! We had a lovely large room and bathroom and found it had everything we needed except tea making facilities. Breakfast was included and was adequate. It is easy walking distance to explore beautiful Lucerne and we were very... More

We stayed here after a day's train trip and as it is opposite the rail station , this is the reason we booked it . A short walk from the train to the hotel. The hotel is Heritage listed so you can't have too many frills but the weather was only in the low 20s when we were there so... More

This hotel is housed in an old building, but is very well maintained. Its centrally located from the trains stations, shops, eateries like Starbucks and McDonalds and the lake near by. My room was on the top floor overlooking the railway station and the lake and the eateries downstairs. Fabulous view. The only drawback was that this hotel does not... More

We chose to stay at this hotel because its very close to train station (just a few minutes of walk) where we arrived and took day trips by train. Its also close to KKL center where we attended a concert. It surprised us that the hotel lift is right next to entrance of Starbucks where there were quite a flow... More

The location of the hotel is very good as it's just opposite the railway station. When we went to check-in, there was a middle aged receptionist, who wasn't warm at all, rolling her eyes and getting irritated with every query of ours. The room was clean but very small and noisy and hot. The breakfast was basic.
