This hotel was chosen based on readers reviews and ratings. I found the readers positives to be over-stated and negatives exaggerated. The service attitude from the front desk was good and generally helpful. The rooms were adequately furnished, moderately decorated and generally comfortable. Many reviewers had mentioned that the noise from a nearby church clock kept them awake throughout the... More

I stayed 3 nights in this hotel. As a solo traveller, I refer to trip advisor to ensure that the hotels I chose are safe, central and comfortable. This one is no exception. An easy walk from the central train station if you don't have too many cases. The staff were helpful - they let me check in early and... More

First I will start with the restaurant. The meal we had was the best dining experience in 10 days of travel. Nice and casual surroundings, you can see the Chef and sous chef working away on your meal, had the veal shank with a nice demiglas sauce and palenta that I am still talking about. The staff was "go out... More

We chose the Hotel Hofgarten based on price and other reviews. While it was a good value for Lucerne, which is overall a very expensive city, we were a bit disappointed. First, the actual place did not look anything like what we expected from the picture posted on their website and the booking sites. It is on a narrow corner... More

The Hotel Hofgarten was the perfect spot to start our 10 day Switzerland vacation. Our room was spacious and was a corner room, with 4 sets of huge windows. The morning breakfast was nice, and our dinner at the restraunt was one of the best meals we had in Switzerland! The staff was super friendly. There is a church across... More

With just 18 rooms we chose this hotel over the bigger places, as we wanted to keep a more friendly feeling, and we were v.happy :) The room was cosy, clean and inviting. The staff were all great, very accommodating and seemed really to be proud to make a good high standard. Getting room service with a peppermint tea for... More

Travelling with your family (especially with an infant) to a new destination? Well the most important element is the friendliness of the hotel staff. And Hotel Hofgarten hits the tone exactly at this point... Its not a very fancy 5 star kind of Hotel, rooms are small (though cosy) - equipped with just the basic elements, however, the ever smilling... More

We stayed at the Hofgarten hotel for 1 night on our way back from Italy. It was recommended to me and was really very good. Travelling with a little baby, the baby bed was arranged and ready and while the little one was sleeping we had a great meal in the restaurant whereby the steak tartare really stood out (prepared...

Don't let the size of the hotel fool you. they are big on warm welcomes, friendly staff and nice clean comfortable rooms. Like most hotels in Lucerne, there was no a/c. Although it was warm by day, the evenings were cool so for us it wasn't a problem. We enjoyed the ringing of the church bells (by day and night)... More
