Wife and I stayed here two nights at the beginning of our amazing two week trip to Switzerland and Italy several weeks ago. We flew into Zurich and took a quick and easy train (that leaves from the basement of the airport, and you buy your Swiss Pass that you will want if you are going to be traveling a... More

My mother and I stayed at Hotel Monopol in Lucerne and were satisfied with our stay. I had requested a room with a lake view and we were given Room 607 (sixth floor) which had a nice view of the edge of Lake Lucerne and the boats, etc. Hotel Monopol was literally across the street from the train station which...

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

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 Other solo travellers got much bigger and better rooms...To top it off, the furniture in the room was so old and outdated, including the mattress which was so uncomfortable your body just sinks to the floor and you could feel the springs....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