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

the hotel is very close to the train station-about 10 minutes walking. and if you don't want to walk there is bus stop right across the hotel. so very convenient! 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

Within walking distance of the train station and the lake as well as all the historical landmarks.Second floor corner room was clean and quiet. there is only one comment that you might want to check on if you stay there and if it is an issue for you. I was traveling with our 18 year old grand daughter and the... 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. The breakfast was simple yet delicious and my room was at the top of the hotel with a loft feel, including lovely exposed beams. The... More

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Hofgarten. It was convenient for all facilities - not too far from the station, close to the lake and a short walk into the main town centre. Others have mentioned the church bells but this didn't bother us at all! We were pleasantly surprised to find a small kitchen / seating area... More

Hotel Hofgarten is a very quaint hotel but it was very noisy. So much so that it was the worst night sleep that I had had in the previous 10 days of our vacation. Between the church bells ringing every 15 minutes and the traffic right outside the paper thin windows, I didn't get to sleep until after 2 am.... More

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
