Hotel Alpha is within a short walk to the main train station, which is the main reason we chose it for our recent (brief) stay in Lucerne. Like the city itself, Hotel Alpha was exceptionally clean. The rooms are very simple, but comfortable and well-lit. There is a sink in each room, but a shared WC & shower room on... More

I was looking for a place to stay the night and I only booked my stay on the same day and upon arrival I received excellent service, the staff was very kind. The place is very affordable and although I was worried about having shared bathrooms I was very much surprised everything was clean and well kept. Even the rooms... More

The location is perfect - walking distance to all the sites and beautiful views out all the windows. The rooms are clean, simple, and nice. We had shared bathrooms but they were always clean. The breakfast was exceptionally nice. Loved everything about the place.

Wasn't overwhelmed by this hotel. It felt more like a big hostel with single/double rooms than a hotel. Breakfast selection was similar to what you would get in a good hostel. Quite loud at night from neighbouring rooms talking/using their washbasins although they go have a sign asking people not to after 10pm. Easy 10 minute walk from train station.... More

Stayed one night at Hotel Alpha. Our room was on the fourth floor with a private bathroom. The room was clean other than an invasion from ants. The hotel staff was pleasant, but the location and tolerance of smoking made our stay unpleasant. The hotel is across the street from a school in which our window faced. During the day... More

Affordable, super clean hotel with lovely staff. Been there often and always like to come back. Breakfast is good, internet works well, shared bathrooms, but one of the cleanest bathrooms I've ever seen. Really nothing negative to say...

We chose this hotel based upon price since most of the lakeside hotels were rather expensive. The hotel is located in a residential neighborhood an easy one-half mile walk from the train station in Lucerne. Rooms were clean and comfortable, but lacked some amenities. We stayed in a room that had a balcony that faced the rear of the hotel... More

This hotel is located in a residential area but within a short walking distance from the rail station, shops restaurants and all of the attractions. Our room was very clean and comfortable. We had a corner room with views of the alps on one side and an adorable house on the other. It was very quiet at night. The shared... More

Stayed here as part fi a bigger group. No complaints very clean,reasonable size rooms with balcony, smoking room down stairs for those that must, own wash basin but have to share toilets and showers. However it is on the cheaper side of hotels in Luzern so ideal for those on a budget and prepared to share.wifi is free and good... More
