Stayed here two nights. 10 minute walk from the train station, very easy to get to. The rooms are clean and look like they were decorated by IKEA. The rooms have a closet, shelves and more shelves, a desk and two chairs, plus a sink. The breakfast room is huge and the food was very good. The hotel is near... More

I stayed with my husband and another couple, and we each had our own room. There is a sink in the room, and dorm style toilet and showers (down the hall) but they are so so so clean. The rooms were neat and clean-- white everything, Scandinavian style simplicity. Breakfast was included in the per person rate, and it had... More

We stayed in a room facing the street with lots of noise late night and early morning. We couldn't close the window completely to block the sound as the room didn't have air-con, which meant we must let some air in through the windows. Even if we could block the noise from the street, the soundproof of the walls was... More

We stayed six nights at the Hotel Alpha while visiting Lucerne. It's a bit out of the way, in a residential area ten or fifteen minutes walk from the station, but that means it's quiet. Only downside to the location is the lack of restaurants immediately adjacent, but there're plenty to choose from not too far away. Rooms are simple;... More

In a country as fasciinating and expensive as Switzerland, it's a pleasure to find such a fine value for the money. The desk staff, cleaning staff, and breakfast room staff are all friendly and extremely helpful, the facilities are spotless with roomy lounges and well-planned (shared) washrooms, and the buffet breakfast is excellent. Location is perfect, on the pleasantly treed... More

The place has a great location and provides great value for staying in Lucerne. It's only a 10-15 minute walk from the train stations on a quiet residential street and park next door. The place was clean and courteous with a nice European breakfast of meats, cheeses, and yogurt. The reason for the reduced rating is the severe lack of... More

Our family with teens recently stayed at the Hotel Alpha and can't say how comfortable we all were and what a great location it is in. This hotel is in an old historic building that has been updated and is very clean and neat. There is no AC but the front desk provided us with fans and we were very... More

Stayed as part of an intrepid tour, the hotel reception area is small but the whole hotel has been renovated nicely in a contemporary style. It is very clean, the rooms are comfortable. Breakfast was an extra but well worth it, the staff were awesome. There is one small lift which could present a problem for those unable to navigate... More

Stayed here during a very quiet period, including Christmas Eve and Day. It was warm enough, quiet....perhaps just a little bit boring. But the location is good and it's an easy walk to downtown, the bars, the restaurants, and the throngs of Chinese tourists and students. Would stay here again as it is good value for money.
