We were very impressed with the service we received. We booked a room in the sister hotel (Alpina). When we arrived, we were told that we could check in at Hotel Monopol, just next to hotel Alpina (at no extra cost) because there were rooms available. Hotel Alpina is a three star hotel, while Monopol a four star. It was...

Comfortable hotel right next to train station. I arrived late at night and left early in the morning, so I didn't see much of it. But everything was as expected. Very clean. Very good value and the location, right at the train station, is perfect.

Our room was ready - the very...

Only a view steps away from the railway-station. The rooms are good renovated. The breakfast is next door in the Hotel Monopol and is very good. Also the lake and the Kappelenbrücke is near from the hotel.

Breakfast is good with a nice variety of breads and buns. Friendly and helpful staff. Clean facilities. A nice variety of English TV channels. Due to architectural constraints on the hotel building, no airconditioners are allowed. It was quite hot on our visit. For normal weather the lack of airconditioner will be ok.

Having read some previous reviews I wasn't looking forward to staying here! The hotel is literally across the road from railway station, you have to book in at the reception of.the Monopole, all very efficient, our room wasn't ready (we were early) so we went for a short trip around Luzern. When we went back our cases had been taken...

The location of this hotel is great. My husband & I stayed 5 nights in Hotel Alpina Luzern. It was so convenient to everything. We arrived before time to check in, so we left our suitcases at Hotel Monopol Luzern, the sister hotel. Then when we came back to check in, they had taken our suitcases to our room. That...

We had a wonderful experience at Swiss Alpina. Our rooms were big enough decked with tv,sufficient cupboard space, gallery and mount pilatus view. The breakfast was hooked up at the sister hotel Monopol. The location is great as it is close to the station and the Kapellbrücke! We also took a Mount pilatus tour with viator and had the pick...

The hotel is convenient and near to train station, but a bit pricy. Staff is nice, but reception is not always available. Room is spacious but a bit old, no kettle and no fridge. Room is a bit hot and need to turn on the fan at night. A bit noisy at night due to pub nearby, therefore ear plug...

The first thing we saw when entering the room was a small dish with ear plugs. Guess the management knows the problem and takes the cheap fix. The front staff was very nice. The windows, when closed, kept the street noise out (and there is a loud bar next door at ground level) but the floor loudly creaks with literally...
