Great location: it's located on one of the busiest intersections of the town. Good sound insulation: we did not have any problems with the street noise and did not hear anything from the rooftop bar (we were staying at the top floor on Fri night). The breakfast is just great. Cons. Beds are not very comfortable. A lot of public...

If the lack of a proper entrance to this hotel (with Macdonalds and Starbucks where the lobby should be) in this once gorgeous edifice,doesn't put you off, then the ice cold rooms without proper heating will. The hotel restaurant, according to the reception on arrival, went bankrupt so one has to search around for food, but they do make a...

The location in Luzern for this hotel is perfect. The Front Desk Team during my check in on the 21st of November were all very friendly and attentive. I was very disappointed the next morning during breakfast when a huge group of Indian Tourist swamped the breakfast area. This is not acceptable where you have people standing all over the...

The staff was super nice. Location is very convient directly across from the train. Some re modeling going on but the hotel handled that very well. We will stay with them again. Breakfast was included with our stay but i dont think with everyone. Good solid european breakfast

Very nice and professional welcome. Room are nice, clean and service is very good. it is very well located, right close to train station, tourist office and bars and restaurant. The starbucks is right at entrance, so ideal for a nice and confortable stay. I stayed there only a night before going hiking to Rigi.

I had a great stay at this hotel for two nights on my way to Israel. The room was great, check in was easy, and I was delighted to find there was a Starbucks in the hotel! The staff was friendly and extremely helpful. I didn't know I could exchange money there and that was very useful. They also let...

The hotel is at the perfect location to get anywhere and our corner room offered us panoramic views of all lucerne. The room was exceptionally large, especially for europe and the bathroom had a large soaker tub. the breakfast in the morning was a great touch.

I just returned from Lucerne, Switzerland! Absolutely one of the best experiences I have had to date. I stayed at the Monopol hotel which was built in the late 1800's and is a beautiful building. Though there was a bit of of a language barrier, the staff was friendly and eager to help. The room was very comfortable and if...

Enjoy the gastronomic experience pure in and around the Hotel MONOPOL. On the top of the hotel, there is the elegant lounge bar SUITE, with most beautiful panorama of the whole city Lucerne.
