Stayed here for 2 nights. Hotel is centrally located right across the train station and within easy walking distance to main Luzern sights. Friendly staff, decent breakfast. Hotel is quite dated - clean, but carpet seems to be a century old, there's no AC, which was the biggest issue since the room stayed unbearbly hot and humid throughout the day... More

The location is just a stone's throw from the Luzern Bahnof. It was ideal for us. We really enjoyed the breakfast and the triple room we booked was spacious and good for family of 4. We recommend this hotel for travellers with families.

It was very comfortable to stay here. Very nice location, just besides the train station. And the hotel staff are very helpful. There are some problems with our TV, and they fix it in right time. Recommend.

This hotel is located next to the train station and this is not a bad thing in Lucerne. The rooms are big and comfortable and there is a good breakfast available which is included in the room price. It is also conveniently located near the ferries. I have stayed there twice and would stay there again.

Loved how the hotel is just beside the train station of Lucerne. Right below the hotel are also restaurants, and a supermarket. Its an old hotel and rooms were just renovated. The bathroom was clean, the staff was good and the security was great as you would need to have a key access before you could enter the corridor to... More

The staff is very friendly and the decor is nice. The rooms are on the small side but not surprising for a hotel in the center of the city. The hotel is across the street from the main train station and there are plenty of shops, restaurants and lake cruises within walking distance. I would definitely recommend the Hotel Monopol.

My first time in Switzerland and stayed at Monopol Hotel Luzern. The room allocated to us came with such a nice view. I really enjoyed my stay in the hotel. The staff was very helpful in providing us with information of the city. I will recommend this hotel to everyone.

The most convenient and statergically placed Hotel. It is 2 min walk from the train station. Approx 5 min walk from the pier, where one could get ferry for an amazing lake experience. The staff is very well trained and food is lovely.....
