The Monopol is a majestic hotel, right across the Lucerne main station. It is particularly convenient for anybody wishing to travel across Swizterland by rail/SBB. The rooms are spacious, the breakfast is nice. It is the essence of Lucerne.

This hotel has very service minded and helpful staff. Great breakfast. Free Wifi. Very spacious and clean rooms, quiet surroundings. The hotel does not seem to be newly renovated but it is clean and light and has an old school charm to it. The only bad thing was that the room was a bit cold.

Stayed here during our last leg of travel in Luzern. The hotel is next to Luzern Railway station, and Ferry terminal, just across the road, facing Lake Luzern. We got a room on 5th floor with a view of the lake. The room was huge by the European standards. It had a large double bed a separate writing desk and... More

Many Plusses but a worrying number of negatives: Location truly excellent, unless you have a car then it becomes problematic - virtually Nil car parking. But if like us you arrive or leave by Train or boat it's ideally located. Until you hear the late night revellers and the nighttime service vehicles which can easily interrupt your sleep. It's a...

Beautiful building from the outside, well positioned to the train, boat and old town of Lucern. But sadly the owners have diminished its charm. We arrived to find MacDonalds and Starbucks have taken over the ground floor. Only one creaky lift was availble to take us to the 6th floor and at times due to staff use this was not... More

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
