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

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

It is a nice and cozy hotel in the heart of the city. We stayed in the room with attached bathroom. We traveled in Oct 2014 as a couple 5-10 min walk from the central station & luzern lake. The staff is very courteous and gave good information about the city & what to see/do etc. The breakfast spread was... More

We liked this hotel because it was clean, functional, and a decent value. We walked to the hotel from the train station ( about 10 minutes). The neighborhood around the hotel was quiet. The river and old town were a short walk from the hotel. We had a room with an in suite bathroom. The room was quite plain, but... More

This is a very basic, older hotel located close to the historic district of Lucerne. It's on a quiet street. The hotel is also very clean, and the check-in personnel are very helpful with directions and suggestions. Most of the rooms have a sink -- but the bathroom and shower are shared, down the hall. However, for a double room,... More

After six years I stayed at this hotel again, nothing has changed since my last time there. Only price has risen steeply perhaps due to the rise of swiss frank against euro.It is located in a quiet neighborhood, a straight 10-15min walk from main train station. Only downside it is a bit outside old city, 10mins on foot. Recommended stay... More

This is a nice clean hotel to stay and it is very close to Lucerne railway station. We stayed here in October 2014. The breakfast is good but basic and the hotel is for budget conscious. Wifi worked well during our stay. For the price, the hotel and its premises are very clean and it is close to bus stop... More

Honestly, I booked into this hotel because it's cheap. It's easy to end up spending three or four hundred a night in Lucerne and the lower priced rooms fill quickly. Hotel Alpha is really closer to a backpackers' hostel than a hotel, although we were able to get a room with a private bath. There were basically no amenities in... More

Stayed here two nights. 10 minute walk from the train station, very easy to get to. The rooms are clean and look like they were decorated by IKEA. The rooms have a closet, shelves and more shelves, a desk and two chairs, plus a sink. The breakfast room is huge and the food was very good. The hotel is near... More
