3.5 stars. The place is very nicely done: rooms are spacious, beds comfortable, with big windows and a small balcony. The location is walking distance from the old town and the river. There's a great bar right around the corner. I got a decent parking spot too as I was driving through Switzerland. I had a shared bathroom for my...

Hotel Alpha is a great place to stay at a most reasonable price for Switzerland. It was quite easy to find by GPS while driving in and had secure car parking outside for a few francs. The reception area was staffed by the friendly and helpful staff who smiled. I notice smiles at the reception desk...I don't know, it sets...

We had two rooms that were connected by a hallway and bathroom that was private for our family. Very nice set up for family with kids. Our room had a nice view. Easy 10...

I stay here every year with my groups, and even though this time there were no rooms with bathroom available, it was still a very pleasant stay.

The hotel was just as good as the reviews said it would be. Good location too, just a straight line from the main rail station. The front desk staff was very helpful, especially with storing an immense amount of luggage for the day before we departed. I opted to save some money and go with the rooms with shared bathrooms,...

This was one of the nicest hotels I've stayed in so far, but also the most expensive at 75 Swiss francs a night. It was so clean and white. Nice white bedding, a nice view to a real courtyard. The breakfast is included in the price as well, and itwas the usual European breakfast fare. My only complaint, you had...

The staff is friendly and helpful. The location is not fantastic and you need to walk 10-15 minutes to the town central or bus station. However lucerne is...

My husband and I stayed at this no frills hotel during our recent trip to Lucerne, Switzerland.
