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

Clean rooms that are quite charming. The service was very good and lived up to our expectations. The breakfast really stood out. Just the right amount of variety and everything very fresh. I could go back just for the breakfast. Location is good close to both the lake and old town.

I can't fault this hotel for the price. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable. It is located only a short walk away from shopping and the main sites of Luzern. It's great if you plan to jump on and off the eurail as it is a 10 minute walk from the main station. The breakfast is exceptional.

I certainly enjoyed my stay here, There were absolutely no issues. The room was good, small, but that is expected in Europe, nothing outrageous, the bed was comfortable and the Wi-Fi was good. The breakfast with the room was very good, traditional, meats, cheeses and bread, with juice and coffee. Additionally, the hotel is located in a very good location,... More

I had a pleasure to stay at Hofgarten for 1 night during my short trip to Lucerne. Hotel is located close to the lake - literally at a walking distance. All main attractions including "The Dying Lion of Lucerne" are close too. Check-in was fast, receptionist very friendly and competent. My room was clean, spacious and comfy. Bathroom was pretty...

Been here on Sunday for lunch, and it is not crowded. Ordered the salad and the chicken (where it mentioned the wait time to be 25min). It worths the wait and the chicken is so tender and soft. The dish did not come with too much gravy but simply with salt on top of the chicken (which just taste perfect).... More
