The hotel is really near the train station which is very nice and close to the old wooden bridge. The room is very old fashion and needs an up grade. The beds are Oke. Breakfast is not special no organic products. The price for One night is way to much

Hotel prices in Lucerne are astronomical so we settled on the Monopol. The location is great -- right across the street from the train station. We reserved a parking spot for our vehicle and drove around the building three times trying to figure out where to park. Finally we called the hotel and were directed to a tiny little alley... More

Would like to share my nice experience with Monopol here as I had such a wonderful time at the hotel. The staffs were very nice and helpful, the room cozy and lovely, and the location great for a concert goer who had come for concerts at KKL. The central location makes it very easy to enjoy what the city could... More

The Monopol close to the railway station is ideal situated. The main bus stations and the piers of the Lake of Lucerne are in walking distances.We didn't need any car or taxis. Friendly, competent and helpful staff. Warm welcoming. The spacious room was good equipped with all we needed and clean. The Starbucks at the entrance is noisy. We missed... More

The Starbucks is in the building right when you get in. So, many peoples are coming in and out while you try to find the front desk that is at the back. Also, in the building and on the same floors as our room were some offices rented to different companies. So, on Monday morning, you share the floor with... More

Arriving in a new city, I was delighted to be very warmly welcomed by Reception staff, who later provided excellent information and tickets for a tour to Mt Pilatus. Whilst my room was not ready on arrival, a call was made to move this along and it was only a short wait until I was able to settle in. The... More

Stayed there for one night for a business trip. Lucerne is a without a question a picturesque City. The hotel is well located directly at the opposite of the train station close to the Vierwaldstätter See. The Entrance is a bit confusing because it is shared with a starbucks which in my point of view does not fit to the... More

After a colleague and I arrived in Luzern, we went to the hotel organized by a conference we were attending and quickly left upon arrival. It was worse than a hostel. We immediately got on trip advisor to find another hotel. We found the hotel Monopol and met asst manager Elsa. She was so friendly and helpful. Elsa made a... More

Stayed at this hotel for two nights. The hotel is old but maintained to a reasonable standard. One thing that was lacking was an air conditioner therefore it was necessary to leave the window open which in turn allowed all the street noise into the room. Location was a key factor and this is one of the main reasons why... More

This hotel is an absolute gem. Conveniently located, great professional staff, and a view that simply cannot be beat. We woke up each morning to a stunning view of Lake Luzern and the Alps beyond. Just simply perfect. One of the best hotels we have EVER stayed in. We walked with our luggage from the train station--2 minutes. also a... More
