This hotel was slightly better than the Tourist Hotel we had stayed at our first night. We moved to the Monopol for our second night in Lucerne as we wanted to be closer to the train station. From this perspective it was perfect - even accessible via underground. The main disappointment was the scaffolding around the hotel. We had apparently...

This was the best room I have had in Luzern. I have been in hotels in this town on several occasions for the past 22 years. If it wasn't so expensive I would rate it a 5. Around 300 CHF for two nights is not a problem when the company pays for it. But I would not find it worth...

The hotel location is excellent, the train station is right across the street. Easy access to public transportation, and you can easily walk everywhere within the city. We had arrived early and our room was not yet ready. The friendly staff at the front desk secured our bags for us and we went out exploring the town. When we arrived...

Very conveniently located. Receptionists were very sweet, friendly, nice, and helpful. They were able to provide great insight regarding what to do, the location of the best local bakery, and other such questions. Booked directly with the hotel. They offered better rates than other booking websites, our rooms were upgraded upon check in, and we received free "Tell Passes" that...

Location right next to the Luzern railway station. From here, you can walk everywhere in the city, as it is quite compact. Building has a very nice old/classic look and is worth a picture in itself. Nothing special about the room, but it had all of the amenities I needed and was clean. It's a good price for such a...

As a traveler with a wife and 3 small kids, its close proximity to railway station is main criteria for me to choose this hotel. Several restaurants and convenience shops are just a stone throw away. It is connected to railway station through a underground passage. The hotel itself is quite old but I find its design is beautiful. The...

I stayed overnight at Monopoly hotel during my recent visit to Lucerne. It was conveniently located just across from the train station. The room was quite basic, with the necessary amenities provided. There's a Starbucks at the entrance of the hotel; and a McDonald's around the corner. The hotel is okay for short stay. If I were there for a...

A CORDIAL WELCOME to the Hotel **** MONOPOL Lucerne, directly at the railway station and the KKL Culture and Convention Centre, in the middle of the center, by the lake and the world famous Chapel Bridge, the tourist sites and in the old town. 73 Greatness rooms with bath/shower, toilet, hairdryer, telephone, minibar, safe, Sat-TV and radio. 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.

The baroque facade with rococo elements, stocked with the Savonniere stone in 1899 and the columns, the capitals of glided iron, the balcony railing and the beautiful copper dome, give to the hotel a inestimable majestic splendour and looks like a Parisian or Viennese palace. ... more   less
