Stayed here for two days.. Excellent location, step out of Luzern station and the hotel is just opposite.. Courteous staff.. Good breakfast... Ideal if your are traveling with family on a holiday.. Lots of pubs and restaurants around... Just 2 minute walk to chapel bridge and the lake... Will surely stay here on my next visit..

This was a hotel booked as part of a trip by another member of our family as an Anniversary gift. It is extremely convenient for those arriving by train, it is literally just across the road. The rooms are lovely, the breakfast buffet had an excellent choice. The lift could be slow, the rooms on the 6th floor are very... More

Spent two days here as part of a short holiday. Hotel booked and paid for by my son as an anniversary present. Room was upgraded to a Junior suite so plenty of room. Even on sixth floor it could be noisy from traffic. Breakfast excellent with wide buffet choice. Only problem was poor water flow into bath, could fill it... More

Fantastic location! Literally just 30 seconds walk from the train station. From the station turn to your left exit and voila! the hotel is just across the road. The hotel situated in a very strategic location-train, bus to city , tram and boats (To Weggis, Vitnau etc) is just few walks away. The hotel has the classic feeling. Check in... More

The Hotel Monopol is conveniently located across the street from the railroad station and is within walking distance of al of the top sights.The staff were very accommodating and polite. We stayed two nights in a lovely room on the 5th floor which had a good view of the waterfront. It was somewhat noisy because of the location but it... More

Just opposite the main train station, bus station & boat piers, just in the centre of the city, walking to all the attractions & Mc donalds & starbucks are right in the hotel. However whrn you go inside it doesnt feels like a 4star property, there are no proper in room... More

The website and the chic rococo facade makes you believe you will stay in classic stylish hotel. However nothing is further from the truth. Behind this fancy facade you'll find a modern multi-tenant building with offices, a travel agency and at the ground floor, next to the entrance, a Mc Donalds and a Starbucks. Not very snappy. The hotel rooms... More

The Hotel Monopol is located in a beautiful and historic building, and the location could not be better as it is across the street from the main train station and only a couple hundred meters from the old town.  The rooftop bar offers a scenic vantage point to have a cocktail and take in the city, the lake, and the...
