The 500 year old Hofgarten Hotel is a heritage! Converted from an old monastery, the place has been aesthetically furnished and decorated to provide modern day comfort. We enjoyed the artsy bits all round this stately building. We will definitely choose to stay at Hofgarten on our next trip to Lucerne.

We stayed here for four nights and loved it. The location could not be beat. An easy walk to the train station and to the town. We enjoyed the free breakfast every morning. There was a lot of choices and something for everyone. With the free wifi, we were able to keep in touch with family back home. The room... More

From the delightful patio for meals and/or drinks to the Swiss look and feel, this is a delightful, reasonable hotel. It is close to the railroad station as well as shopping, dining, and places you want to see. Close to the lake it is picturesque and the staff is friendly and most helpful. A true find!!!!!

We stayed as a couple for two nights. Having come from Rome & unwittingly staying on a busy piazza there, we found Hotel Hofgarten to be a peaceful escape. Our window overlooked the front courtyard (which is the restaurant's patio area) but it was quiet during our stay & the bells weren't disruptive to us; we had 2 nights' of... More

Although the hotel is squished between large buildings opposite the lake/river from the train station, it is surprisingly quiet and well-suited for exploring the city. Since I had read about the nearby church bells, I asked for a quiet room and got one way up on the top floor. Noise was not a problem at all as the windows are... More

The Hotel is well placed, but although it is just off the main street there is still traffic noise. My overall problem with the hotel was the size of the room. Supposedly with bathroom, there was no bath. There was the famous glass door next to the WC. The room was under the roof and I now see from a... More

Four of us ate dinner here and were very pleasantly surprised that the owner of the restaurant greeted us, gave us a choice of tables, and then stayed to tell us about the menu, the wines, and the area. The foods were delivered hot and beautifully plated. We all were very happy with our choices. The restaurant is on the... More

I stayed at Hotel Hofgarten for a month. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay there. The Hotel location is very good. It is very close to the lake and at a walkable distance from the station. The staff is very helpful. The best part of the stay was the breakfast. It is equally good for a short stay when you will... More

Very nice hotel, with nice bedrooms. A bit odd that our bathroom door was see through glass, not a fan of that. And it is very close to a bell tower that rings every 15 minutes, may not be enjoyable for a light sleeper. But the service was fantastic. The breakfast was perfect, great selection. The dinner we had there... More

Rooms are very clean and the entire staff has been friendly and helpful.The rooms are typical Swiss small, but very cute with all the expected amenities - minibar, safe, robes, flat screen TV, etc. The bed was incredibly comfortable. Would definitely stay again.
