Extremely friendly staff and great location . If booked in advance can request a room which has a view of the beautiful lake and landscape . The restaurant serves very good authentic Swiss delicacies but a bit steep on pricing . Would definitely recommend the hotel but would advise booking way in advance due to the limited no of rooms...

The hotel is located off the mail shopping area and old town, yet very conveniently one block from the lake and 10 minutes walk to old town and railway station. The staff at reception and restaurant- both dinner and breakfast- is very friendly and polite. The rooms are very clean and beds extremely comfortable. Breakfast is not huge, but of...

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...
