First about the bells and noise...if you are a sound sleeper like y son and husband you will not be bothered at all. If you are a light sleeper, like me, you might want ear plugs which lessen the sound. I take them with me wherever we travel, and don't leave home without them. Aside from the fact that the... More

This hotel is located 3-4 blocks from the main shopping and dining part of the old town, and 1 block from the lake. From the outside, it looks like an old, traditional styled restaurant with rooms. Inside, you will find a clean, modern hotel and restaurant. The hallways are bright and airy, with tile floors and metal railings on the... More

I reserved this hotel via Hotwire and was pleasantly surprised with it overall. Traveling solo throughout Switzerland, I stayed in a solo room which was quite spacious, quirky and comfortable for me. The hotel is 10 minute walking distance from the train station, across the bridge and next to the cathedral. Super easy to find and near all the attractions.... More

This hotel is a landmark in Lucerne as it was a house built in the late 1700's and at some point converted to a hotel. We were very fortunate to have a room on the second floor where no other rooms were located. The room was very large as well as the bathroom. Think of it as an old house... More

We stayed in this hotel 2 nights. + : ideal location, you can drop your car and walk around the town, and up to the Transport museum. Friendly staff, excellent breakfast and spacious room - : we didn't like the glassdoor of the bathroom! and we liked even less the valet parking guy who was on his cell phone while... More

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.
