The hotel is very close to the station and is central. However for me, the hotel itself was very basic and a bit dated. The bathroom looks very dated but it was clean and served it's purpose. You check-in and have breakfast at the sister hotel, The Monopol, which was nice and if possible I would recommend staying at the... More

I booked hotel Alpina *3 stars ( and got an upgrade for free to Monopol *4 stars). Very good value for money, close to the railway station, port, the KKL and old historical center of Lucerne. Good breakfast. I asked for a quiet room and got exactly that. I will go there again.

I had a brief, 2 night stay at the Alpina Hotel. I booked a single room and because of my experience with a similar hotel in Geneva, my expectations were not high. Again, I chose this hotel because of its short distance to the station and, for Switzerland, at a reasonable price. As it turned out the hotel exceeded my... More

This is a small tourist hotel with very small rooms that were clean. It was quiet enabling a good sleep. A super excellent breakfast is served in an affiliated, and much nicer, hotel 100 metres away. Off street parking available. Located very close to the rail station and thus well placed to walk about the lake and central parts of... More

The location was excellent as it was only a three minute walk to the train station. The Alpina was within close walking distance of the Lucerne attractions. The room was very quiet and comfortable and the breakfast (at the affiliated Monopol Hotel) was absolutely delicious. Diana, the receptionist was very helpful and spoke excellent English. She was so likeable that... More

Hotel Alpina Luzern is a very functional hotel in the centre of Lucerne very close to the main train station. You wont get many luxuries. But if you are OK with staying at a decent, no-frills hotel, this hotel is perfect. All the floors and walls are nicely carpeted and overall the cleanliness levels are good. The central location means... More

I liked the breakfast at the Monopol Hotel. The location was very good for train travellers. The room, while quiet, was exceedingly small. The bed was very hard. The wifi was hit and miss and not available in the rooms only in the overcrowded lobby. The staff were not at all helpful. The lift was dangerous in that the exit... More

The good thing about the hotel was it was very near to Lucerne station. So easy transfer & commute to other places. Service was okay. We travelled in end of July when it was very hot, 32 degrees. NO A/c, small fan(on request), so bit uneasy. Shower like a box, felt bit suffocation if you close the door.

The Alpina is brilliantly located, close to the beautiful river and lake, and railway station. Hotel staff were friendly and helpful, but my single room was small and outdated. It was located on the fourth floor, and lacked air conditioning. It was also very noisy at night from nearby diners, so having the window open wasn't an option. The breakfast... More
