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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

Location is like 10 minutes walk from the main Lucern train station, which is good if you don't mind to do a but walking. We had a huge room facing the school but thankfully it was summer holiday so there's no activities, good rest. Room is spacious and clean. WIFI was good, breakfast was good. The wall is a bit...

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 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.
