My husband and I stayed here for 1 night. It was quite a walk from the train station (15mins) but not hard to find.

Shared bathroom but double room comes with a sink. Room was clean, minimally decorated, a desk and chair, and balcony. Wi-fi however is only for an hour.

Breakfast is buffet style in the dining room near the reception. Simple selection but sufficient -bread, cheese, ham, cereal and hot drinks (coffee, chocolate, tea).

Hotel Alpha was about 15 mins walk away from the train station. It was located in a good neighbourhood which you feel safe to walk in even late at night. The room was simple and clean with very soft pillows. Breakfast selection was also simple with breads, cereals, eggs and stuffed hams etc (The stuffed ham was delicious!). The staff at the counter was friendly and helpful. There is a small elevator in the hotel which you will appreciate since not all hostel or hotel in Europe has elevator. We had a pleasant stay with Hotel Alpha.

The rooms were very clean as were the share bathrooms. The hotel is situated only a short walk from the train station and the price was very reasonable considering switzerland is generally quite expensive for accomodation. The breakfast was amazing and included in our price of only 108chf (may 2012). If your after all the bells n whistles of an upper class hotel room then perhaps not for you but the rooms were very clean & although basic we considered it a bargain for the price.

I stayed two nights in August, and was quite satisfied. The location is excellent, the price fair, the room very clean, the shared shower and toilet clean as well, never had to wait in line. The breafast was good, and a free hour of the internet per day on the local computer.

Room Tip: My room was overlooking the internal courtyard, and there were people talking late at night and early in the morning. Maybe, the rooms that overlook the street are quiter, as there is hardly any trafic.

I've stayed there for 2 nights at the beginning of august in a bright single room with shared facilities (brand new) on the first floor which had also probably been renovated recently with nice balcony overlooking a quiet street. The price paid is quite correct for swiss standards and period (Luzern Festival) and the breakfast buffet was very good. Reception people helpful in all respect.
Look elsewhere if you are looking for superior accomodation, but then the price.........
