“Great location, average hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

First, Lucerne is amazing - don't miss it!! This hotel is in a great location right in the middle of Weinmarkt. Just a few blocks from the water front and an easy walk from the train station, even with luggage. It's clean, and amazingly, our room was huge. If you are traveling with a small family, our room would have been perfect. It had a little nook - almost like a second room - with a single bed, a larger bed in the main space and a pullout in its own area. While we didn't need all that room, it was nice to stretch out. There is no air conditioning and opening the windows wasn't pleasant with the bugs and street noise. They did provide a fan, which was helpful, but it didn't get the job done. There also seemed to be an electrical problem because the television kept loosing power and you couldn't plug into all of the outlets at the same time. The breakfast was more of a little snack then a meal. Not much interaction with the staff, so I can't comment on the service. Location was an A+ and it was clean. Given the prices of hotels in Lucerne, this hotel was a fine value for the price.

The Hotel Krone was my second choice of hotel in Lucerne and when my first choice turned out to be ridiculously expensive for a family of four - I took the cheaper option which turned out to be a great decision. Our room was very spacious by European hotel standards and was lovely, clean and airy with super comfortable beds. We walked here easily with our wheelie bags from the railway station and were delighted to find the Hotel Krone in a gorgeous location in the old town. Our check-in by Ivan at reception was very enthusiastic and welcoming. We loved the location of the hotel in the old town, it was easy to walk everywhere. There was a good choice of food at breakfast and all the staff were friendly and helpful. No problems with Wifi on the 3rd floor. We stored our bags here all day after check-out while we explored Mt Pilatus. This has definitely been my favourite hotel on our Europe trip thus far.

This is an excellent hotel and location for anyone going to Lucerne. Within easy walking distance of the majority of the city's sites and attractions. A great value for this area. Highly recommended!!!

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the river side, one of the upper floors. Great view at night.

Great looking hotel in a nice convenient location. Only challenge we had was that there is no AC. Opening the windows at night is the only option to cool things off which unfortunately lets bugs in and the street noise. Windows have to be closed by 4am as that is about when the traffic picks up. I am sure on cooler days there is no issue. Otherwise pretty average.

In the best location possible, the midst of the picturesque old town, next to the river and all the restaurants. The hotel doesn’t have air-condition and the room’s facilities are quite basic. The stuff was rather nice, but couldn’t help with the poor Internet connection. We had to go down to connect.

Room Tip: Don't miss the "gold trip" to the Pilatus.

My wife and I stayed here with our two teenage boys in a family room. This is a no frills hotel, but the service was excellent and it was spotless. The free breakfast was nice especially with a family, and included breads, meats and cheeses. It is a short walk to the boat and train stations, and is in the heart of old town. A great place to stay to tour Lucern.

It may have been from all the traveling I had been doing, but I felt like I just melted into their bed. The location is perfect as it's right in Lucerne's downtown plaza. Room is very spacious, and we could see the plaza from our room! Would stay again.
