Review: The Monopol's strikingly handsome building, built in 1898, is in the very center of Lucerne, across from the rail station. Guestrooms are comfortable and well furnished in a modern style, but fall well short of the opulence of the Gütsch or Schweizerhof. Number 510, decorated in red and green, is a reasonably quiet single with bathtub, that rents for 140 Sfr. ($117). Number 506 is a double with tub and views of the city and lake for 265 Sfr. ($221). Restaurant Arbalète offers a French menu with complete meals priced from 55 to 130 Sfr. ($46-$108). The trade-off for the central location of this mostly business hotel is traffic and noise.
