Will borrow you adaptors and umbrellas. Other reviews have commented on the bathroom... Yes the for is half way frosted and right next to bed in room so... More

I always try to find family run hotels and not chains. This hotel has a fantastic location just a block from the lake and about three blocks from the Lion Monument. Quiet street - wonderful church bells ringing in the time. Quirky art work lining the walls --- our room had a baptismal font in it! Lovely staff - Julia... More

Very convenient position just one block back from the lake and the room rates are that much less as a result. Excellent hotel with nice rooms and quirky artwork. Staff very helpful and very professional. Breakfast good and the dinner we had was excellent. We were in a roof room with lots of stairs to climb but spacious. Limited toiletries... More

We spent a night at the Hofgarten recently after a wedding, and it was a wonderful stay. The hotel is nice and cozy, away from busy streets, but within walking distance of major attractions in Lucerne and even the train station. We had a great room (No. 244), it was very spacious, in impeccable condition, very clean and comfy. We... More

We as a family of 3 adults stayed in the room and it was very comfortable. The staff is very nice and helpful. the food in their restaurant is also... More

Well, I looked for a long time amongst the old and fancy hotels of good, old Lucerne, but boy did they make ME feel old. Until I found the Hofgarten, which is in the midst of the action, but still quiet and funky - exactly what we were looking for. The hotel was remodeled and rooms added - I guess... More

My wife and I stayed at the Hotel Hofgarten in Lucerne this past Saturday and Sunday. It was an extremely enjoyable stay and I must compliment the entire staff, especially the restaurant staff. Morning breakfast was included in the price of our stay and we also had dinner twice. Excellent service and food. The hotel itself is quite nice and... More

I wanted to share my experiences as it was the first time I stayed in this hotel. The staff where lovely and very accomodating with a last minute reservation change that I needed to make.
