I arrived to a warm welcome, was given a double room (even though I was a solo traveler) with a view to die for. My window opened up onto the lake Uri, and the mountains rose in the distance. I couldn't have been happier with my room on the 4th floor. Breakfast was a lovely affair downstairs in a cozy... More

Location, location, location! You find the hotel right on the shore of Lake Lucerne, just across the famous Rutli meadow where the history of Switzerland 1291 started and you can go there every hour by boat from early morning. View over the lake is just amazing! Local bus stop just round the corner (5 mins to the railway station), or... More

The Hotel Schmid and Alpha is conveniently situated on the lakeside very close to the Brunnen landing stage where boats from Luzern and Fluelen call on their way around Lakes Luzern and Uri. Brunnen SBB railway station is an 8 - 10 minute walk or you can catch the local bus which is timed to enable connections with the trains.... More

We had a room in hotel Alfa, on the fifth (top) floor, at the front. The view on Lake Uri was superb! We loved the balcony and enjoyed the views. The room was spotless clean, smelled fresh and was cosy, with wooden furniture and nice decorations. To us, it was perfect. The bathroom was also clean, with bathtub and shower.... More

We should have checked our room before we stayed, but it was only for a night. The balcony was very small and was really on these decor the building. The part facIng the lake seemed like it was much nicer. The room was very small and had paper thin walls. The party next to our room kept me up till... More

Stayed here for one night. Good location just opposite the ferry and only ten minutes walk to the train station. We had a room on the second floor with fantastic views of the lake and mountains. Unfortunately the floor was so squeaky due to a wooden floor. I am sure must drive the room below mad. There was a fan... More

There is mild deception here. Alfa is a separately maintained hotel sold as part of the property next door. A hotel is differentiated from a motel as most people know. Alfa is truly a sub par motel ala Motel 6. Alfa has '70's plastic furniture, locked doors, no staff and twenty stairs up from the street level - yes you... More

Just spent a week there, excellent staff, nice room with a lake view. Breakfast buffet was very good, with a choice of cereals, bread, jam and even fruit salad. Floor boards above and next door squeaked a lot, didn't help that the guest upstairs appeared to fancy a route march round the room every morning. Even though we had the... More

We spent 2 days at the Alfa. The hotel was clean and looks as though it may have just been updated. The room was somewhat small, although that may be because we spent so much time in it. It rained on and off both days we were there. The view from the balcony is spectacular! Surrounded by mountains, some with... More

We booked the day before our arrival and asked for a room with a lake view. On arrival you can park at the front of the hotel whilst you check in and unload, you then park 2 minutes away. The lady who checked us in was called Mina and was really welcoming and helpful. The rooms are a little dated... More
