The hotel is located on the lakeside close to the boat station for cruises on Lake Luzern and is about a ten minute walk from Brunnen railway station or you can use the local bus for the transfer. Last year I stayed in the larger Schmid Hotel as the Alfa part was closed, but this year I was able to... More

Most of it has been said before: wonderful view, good room, generous breakfast buffet. Just one quibble - the bathroom lacked a few refinements, e.g. there was nowhere in the shower to place your shampoo & body wash etc and there was no plug in the hand basin. What looked like a plug could not be used to stop water... More

If you could only bottle the service this hotel would take over the world. We had a spectacular view, a clean modern room with a comfortable bed and an excellent breakfast. The manageress/owner was a pleasure to deal with.

We stayed at Hotel Schmid and booked a two bedroom apartment for our family of four with two teenagers. The people at the reception are really nice and friendly and they gave us a key to open the hotel and our room when the reception closes at night. The breakfast was included and was amazing, though it wasn't hot, but... More

We had fun bargaining with the hotel staff for a room for the night. They had great senses of humor and were more than accommodating. They set us right for food, and set us up in wonderful rooms with outstanding views of the lake and mountains. This is one of the best views from a hotel room ever. The room... More

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
