lovely hotel... the staff were really friendly and welcoming. i stayed for two nights and location is great as you can walk to everywhere. it is at the doorstep of some of the main sights. The only thing is that my room was very hot - there was no air con and ended up being quite noisy (noise from cars)... More

My husband and I stayed in this hotel after our tour group placed us in the jail hotel down the street. The room we were placed in was creepy (it was the old prison library) and neither of us could really sleep and relax which was all we wanted to do after being in the bus all day driving. So... More

We stayed there 4 nights. Got to the hotel one late afternoon and our room was not ready. We had to wait downstairs for 10 mins. This when we were very tired and wanted a room to crash. The third bed was very small and uncomfortable. The bathroom door was a completely transparent glass and there was no privacy. Anyone... More

Quaint hotel, very picturesque. Good location, we were able to walk from the train station and the city center is just up the street. Hotel desk personnel very helpful and this is the only hotel in our whole trip that came with breakfast and my husband said it had the best coffee of the trip. The only downside was a... More

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
