My stay at Hotel Hofgarten was brief, but lovely. I had a quick overnight in Lucerne, and chose this hotel based on the positive reviews and great location. I was very happy with my choice. The hotel has a charming, more traditional looking exterior but a more modern interior. The rooms had some quirky and fun decor, and everything was... More

Nice, clean room. Everything is prefect except no on-site laundry room and slow reception response time. There are always no one at the reception and take several minutes to get someone from the restaurant to come back to the reception.

Very nice helpful staff but hotel lacks amenities. The elevator leaves you with 2 flights of stairs to get to your room. Not fun with large luggage :(. No soundproofing or carpets in entire hotel so it is Very Noisy. Little sleep for me. Very basic room, bed didn't even have a headboard! Decent breakfast. Good Location to take nice... More

Stayed 2 nights with family of 4 (2 rooms). Service exceptional, was upgraded without asking. Convenient to everything. Though was a bit of street noise as we stayed on Sat/Sun during the finals of Eurocup and apparently lots of Portugal fans in town! Can't oververemphasize how helpful the staff was. Good restaurant too.

We could reach every where by foot or by train or bus which were nearby.The breakfast was very good.I would definitely stay there if... More

Conveniently located 10 minute walk from the train station, and very easy to find (just check a map before you set out; it's basically a straight shot with two turns from the trian station). This isn't the Grand Monaco, so if you are looking for fancy look elsewhere. But it's a quaint little place with a lot of charm. My... More

The hotel is a lovely Swiss traditional house. It is situated in the old town, not easy to find in a rainy night with heavy luggage though. Luckily a gentleman who was chatting with his friend outside Hotel zum Rebstock (another traditional house) showed us the right direction. Spacious room, friendly and helpful staff, nice relaxed atmosphere in Hofgarten made... More

I stayed at the Hotel Hofgarten in Luzerne for a Friday and Saturday night in late April. I was on a business trip with two colleagues and we decided at the last minute to go to Luzerne instead of Zurich for the weekend...we made a great choice. We had a rental car and arrived during rush hour so getting into... More

Great location. You can get anywhere you need to on foot. Nice breakfast. Very helpful front desk staff. Elevator only goes to the second floor so the three upper floors are all on foot. Just a block off the busy street makes for a nice quiet stay.

Had a great stay here while visiting Lucerne. Oliver at the front desk was very helpful with all my questions and made checking in and out very quick and simple. Very close to the train station and easily walkable. Room was nothing amazing but nothing bad either. Wifi worked well. The only small problem i had was climbing a couple... More
