I booked a last-minute trip to Lucerne and was a little worried when all of the places recommended by friends were sold out. However, I found Hotel Alpha on Hostelword.com and am so glad I did!
The rooms are adorable - I even had my own balcony - and they are SUPER clean! There’s a sink inside the room and then shared toilets and showers on each floor. Even though i stayed during “peak season”, I never had to share.
The front desk staff were super helpful, and the breakfast was great! Hard boiled eggs, cheese, yogurt, toast, fresh fruit, cereal and coffee. Considering how expensive everything is in Switzerland (I couldn’t get over the price of coffee - for comparison, a small, brewed PLAIN COFFEE at Starbucks was $5-6?!), having the breakfast provided saved $10-20/day.
Off a quiet street and walking distance to everywhere you need to go - I’d definitely recommend! More
