Quickly booked this hotel for a night, taking the risk for not searching long .... and was positively surprised; it is ideally located, has everything you need, it is clean, friendly and intelligently organised. I did however not get a parking place, because I had not thought of reserving one ... The hotel has by the way internet and you...

I was staying in Lucerne for 1 night after visiting RIgi & Pilatus. This hotel is great value for money in expensive Lucerne. It is located within 15minutes walk from Lucerne bahnhof. A buffet breakfast is included with the room rate. Rooms are spacious & in the contemporary style. The bathroom & shower room are outside the room & clean....

Fair quality for its price. 10 to 15 minutes walk from the main train station, close to most of the popular tourist spots. Room is clean with shared bathroom outside. Good enough if you are trouble on budget.

This hotel is in a good location to the train station. The breakfast was excellent. It would have been nice to have a private bathroom but the facilities were clean. Lucerne is a beautiful city and this hotel allows you explore by foot or is close to city transport. The hotel staff were responsive and check in was easy.

An easy walk from the station and old town. We did have a shared shower/bath. But before you say "No" was pleased and surprised at the privacy, cleanliness, and space of the modern accommodations even though they were across the hall. We had a sink and towels in our room. For the price it was wonderful, not fancy but so...

We tried the shared bathroom for the first time ever... we were pleasantly surprised at how clean and neat everything was. It was only a few steps from our room, and was never occupied by anyone else during our stay. We had a basin and towels in our room, which was perfect. Breakfast was great. They had a wide variety...

We stayed at Alpha for 3 nights in a double room with bathroom. I was (unpleasantly) surprised at how basic the room was. Literally a double bed (which was incredibly uncomfortable and hard with next to nothing pillows), side tables which I would have dumped years ago and a square table and chair. The bathroom was a good size but...

We were stunned at the prices to stay in Lucerne, and then found Hotel Alpha. Our room was comfortable, very basic with a bath and toilet, yet still affordable. Breakfast with just fine. The location was an easy walk to old town, restaurants and other attractions. The hotel is in a safe, quiet location. We noticed that most bicycles left...

I was a little apprehensive about staying in this hotel due to the shared bathrooms. Our room had a basin. The shared bathrooms were spotlessly clean and always available when needed. Breakfast was good and the mood in the room was dependant upon the staff member attending. The first morning the staff member was noisy, rushing and appeared to be...

The man at the reception was very rude and arrogant. He made it clear that he didn't want us there and was very unfriendly. We didn't feel welcome at all. So if you want to be treated friendly and with respect, DON'T GO THERE!! The rooms are very basic... I know Switserland is expensive but you pay a lot of...
