Our first impression was bad and was not improved over the 3 night stay. I booked the hotel, because it was near the train station and we would not have to haul our luggage far. We got to the hotel only to learn that we had to go back to the Monopol Hotel to checkin. The Alpina reception had been...

Great location, in the centre of the city. The hotel itself is an old building but the rooms were very clean and a reasonable size with comfortable chairs and writing desk. There is a lift,albeit very small but functional. As there is no reception or staff at the Alpina, you are required to check in at the 4 star sister...

Extremely clean, in the center of the city, practical, just two steps from the railway station, this hotel is my regular choice when coming to the city for a concert at the KKL concert hall or any other city event. The service is smooth, the room is spotless. During the winter months, the check-in is in the hotel Monopol, just...

Hotel Alpina is very friendly, clean and has a great location beside the rail station in Lucerne. Within minutes you cancan aso be at the lake and in the centre of Lucerne.

I was staying at the Alpina for one night. Was arriving late and left very early in the morning. Alpina is a very comfortable hotel very close to the train station. The room was fine and quiet to inner court. Can only recommend

We were very impressed with the service we received. We booked a room in the sister hotel (Alpina). When we arrived, we were told that we could check in at Hotel Monopol, just next to hotel Alpina (at no extra cost) because there were rooms available. Hotel Alpina is a three star hotel, while Monopol a four star. It was...

Comfortable hotel right next to train station. I arrived late at night and left early in the morning, so I didn't see much of it. But everything was as expected. Very clean. Very good value and the location, right at the train station, is perfect.
