The location of the Hotel Krone is very good for visiting the area. It's in the historic district and makes accessing everything incredibly easy. However the hotel isn't anything to be all that excited about. The room is relatively small and doesn't have any air conditioning. There was a fan supplied, but it honestly didn't do all that much.

The hotel would be a 10-15 mins walk from the train station. However we took a cab since we were travelling with our 7 month old. It's took us around 18CFH to reach the hotel. Our room was pretty spacious with a view of the fountain at the square. I thought it would be noisy at night, but it wasn't,... More

This hotel is easy to find and the location is excellent within walking distance to the best of Lucerne. The staff were friendly and considerate, providing a lunch on the day we needed to leave at 5:45 A.M. However the hotel is not air-conditioned. The windows open over the bed in the small room. It is very easy to hit... More

This was our first stay in Switzerland. Walked from the Station to the Hotel which is possibly 10 minutes towards Chapel Bridge. Nice place in the vicinity of restaurants, market place, land marks including Chapel bridge.

We arrived late in the evening, hotel has a lift but very small and NO air conditioning! It is a quaint hotel but because of such warm weather we did not enjoy. It is very close to the city center in Lucerne. After 10 there are no restaurants open around so we had to order pizza.

Do not stay in this hotel in the summer. It is extremely hot with lack of air flow in the halls and rooms.Fans just don't cut it. Plain, dorm like rooms, but clean and updated. Location in old town was charming and near shops and restaurants. Staff was quite helpful.

Me and my wife had a good stay at this hotel until checkout. We had booked a apartment and it was very nice. The attendant at check-in was very helpful and courteous. However the attendant at checkout was very rude. After our breakfast we went to reception desk to ask some information and conversation went like this. Me: Hi, Could... More

I travelled by myself to Lucerne in May 2015. This hotel was located in the Old Town of Lucerne, approximately a 5 minute walk from the train station. It was the perfect location to explore Lucerne. Breakfast was excellent with lots of options. There were also lots of restaurants nearby. The room was very clean and comfortable with big fluffy... More

Positives: 5-7 minute walk from train station, good free wifi, decent size double room for two on 4th floor The rest: indifferent staff, poor quality bedding and towels, very hot-fan in room didn't do the trick and leaving windows open it was difficult to sleep because of noise, horrible "free" breakfast-even my child recognized the poor quality of food; we...

Location: The hotel is located in the heart of the old town, in a very nice square. Lots of restaurants nearby :) Easy walking distance from the train station - it took us about five minutes with luggage. We walked everywhere as the distances are short. Hotel: Room was bit on the small side, but enough space for two. Quiet... More
