Right next to the train station, bus terminal, and ferry station, with views of the lake, the hotel Monopol is the perfect location. Rooms are comfortable, quiet with the usual amenities. Breakfast is the usual buffet with an espresso/cappuccino/coffee machine. A lovely old building with a very modern bar on the top floor with great views of the lake and... More

the hotel is right on your left when tou come out of the railway station. Welcome is warm, the staff is very hospitable and the rooms are quite huge compared to.other hotels in swiss. The bathroom is huge as well and the interior gives a traditional feel.

The room was delightful. It was "modernish" but with a touch of a classical taste. The view I had in my room was awesome. Ask for room 405. The view, the weather was pleasant. The location is great, just beside the train station and you can travel everywhere easily. The old village of Lucerne is also a few minutes away... More

We spent four nights at the Monopol just before Christmas. The location was second to none being right opposite the train station and just across the bridge from the old town. We had easy access to everywhere we wanted to go. The room was enormous and very comfortable. Breakfast was also great with a good array of food. Overall, an... More

Receptionist was more than helpful and went out of her way to help us with our onward travel. Had two connecting rooms looking towards the lake, they were comfortable,clean and well equipped. Secure parking at rear cist €25 per night. Breakfast was good with decent coffee. We were on the 5th floor and could clearly hear the nightclub below, but... More

A nice hotel situated just opposite to the train station. But unfortunately a silly act spoiled our whole stay. I booked a triple room for our family and the staff gave us a room which had a bathroom with a transparent despite the fact that the hotel had other rooms with normal doors for the bathroom. Think twice if you're... More

I visited Lucerne for my birthday and it seems as a reward, we were upgraded to the top floor of the Hotel Monopol after booking at the hotel's sister company the Alpina. Staff were very friendly and helpful, the room was absolutely gorgeous with a lovely view of the lake and the city. Starbucks and McDonalds are right downstairs if... More
