Hotel Monopol Luzern Lucerne Reviews
Standing fan in the room! Sep 16, 2013
This hotel, located at city centre of Lucerne.
The issue of convenience is solved when the location is at the city centre.
No worries for food or some shopping.
There is a Starbucks just right below the hotel.
And there is a tunnel right below the hotel, when lots shops (pastry, convenience shop, reataurants) inside the tunnel. There is few pastry shop there, try the cake where it is top with strawberry, its just beyond words! please do try! and their muffin is marvellous!
For Internet connection, monopol hotel does not provide free wifi! And the charges for wifi connection it's kinda expensive! But, there are 2 remedy for wifi connection issue!
First, you can just get to the hotel lobby, and use starbucks free wifi connection, it's not an auto connection type, you need to do some registration when you wanted to use the free wifi connection but its alright since you just need to fill in your basic personal details, and the registration is for the purpose of promoting Starbucks. I received emails from Starbucks Switzerland telling about their promotion, thus it's safe to use the free wifi connection :)
Second, mobile internet! you may get a simcard! its kinda cheap! And if you want to get a simcard during your stay in Switzerland, you may just walk to the tunnel and there is a Orange telecommunication shop. Brings along your passport for registration. One passport can register for 2 SIM cards
For the room, the time where I travelled was during march. And when I enter the room, I got shocked, there is no aircond, and provided us with a standing fan!
As for the washroom, it's nice, given the full set, I mean lotion shower cream and hair shampoo. And I like the fact that there is 2 wash basin thus each guest got the space to put their own things!
And the receptionist is very helpful! The mobile Internet connection SIM card that I had bought since cant connect to the Internet and I don't know how to check the balance since I can't read their language, thus they helped me to read those messages and translated to me. Thanks a bunch :)
One disadvantage of this hotel is, the lift does not reach the respective floor directly. For example, if you are in fifth floor, the lift will bring you to fifth floor, but, it's actually brought you to floor 4 and a half! Which mean when you reach the floor, you will require to climb a short staircase to reach the floor to your rooms. And if you have a heavy luggage, you will be having difficulties to drag the luggage up!

Just ok Mar 18, 2010
This Hotel is located in front of the main train station, it looks great outside, like a luxury hotel, but the rooms are just ok.
-Small and bad situated 22" TV (Can't see from the bed)
-Small Toilet, but basic
-Breakfast included (not a great one, just a normal one)
Can't complain because the location is great, in front of train station and 5 minutes from oldtown and Kapellbrücke
The price for a single room: 99CHF (73Eur), I think it's average in Swizerland
