We spent one night here on the way back to Zurich airport from the mountains. The location is superb - right next to the bahnhof, and right in the center of Lucerne next to the lake, the river walks and all the sights and shopping you could want. It isn't cheap, but what is inexpensive when you stay in central... More

To start with a Great Location!!! Train Station, tram station, bus stop and ferry are all bang opposite and all the tours leave from just behind the hotel. No complaints for no Air conditioning....as weather was great so kept the windows open and fan did the trick. But in hotter weather air conditioning is required. Breakfast was good and the... More

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 Other solo travellers got much bigger and better rooms...To top it off, the furniture in the room was so old and outdated, including the mattress which was so uncomfortable your body just sinks to the floor and you could feel the springs....

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
