This was actually the second time my wife and I have stayed here, the first time being three years ago. The location is good, very close to beautiful Lake Lucerne and the famous Lion Monument. Two different busses stop directly in front of the hotel and the trip to the train station or the docks takes about 5 minutes. We...

I stayed at Hotel Hofgarten for 3 nights in mid September and enjoyed my stay. All staff that I encountered were very nice and helpful. I arrived late morning after an overnight flight into Zurich and they were able to check me in early which was great because I needed a nap! My room was on the second floor I...

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...

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...

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.

The staff were very friendly and helpful. They upgraded our room at their own cost on knowing that we were there for our anniversary. It was the best room of the hotel. The location was excellent. 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...

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...

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...

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...
