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.

I stayed here for two nights in February 2015 in a single room. The hotel was a short walk from the station and easy to find. The staff, from my arrival to the time I left were polite and helpful, offering to take my suitcase to my room, asking if I needed anything. The waitress at breakfast was very friendly... More

Great staff and accommodations. My husband had business's here and we were here for pleasure Just off the Main Street. Very quiet with very helpful and friendly staff. The breakfast was the most amazing food. The best of all Amy travels on this trip. If you have a room above the second floor there is no elevator. We had the... More

We stayed only for a couple of nights, but we were greeted by the waitress then the manager of the hotel as soon as we walked through the door. The lady manager/owner was just lovely, she offered to carry my suitcase up just the few stairs we had to use& and gave us a big massive room!. The waitress at... More

It is located in a perfect neighborhood, so you will be in a walk distance of everything you have to see in Lucerne old town. The staff were amazing and the breakfast quite good. The room was comfortable, but the beds a bit softer than I'm used to. It is certainly a nice choice to stay in Lucerne!
