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...

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...

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....

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...

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...
