    Nice Hotel”

    We stayed for 3 nights at Altstadt Hotel Krone and it was really pleasant. We arrived late at around 10.30pm after a long journey, but the staff ensured that the room is ready and provided the keys instantly. Hotel is in a nice locality and walk-able distance to Luzern station, chapel bridge and other amenities.

    Very nice hotel, great location!”

    Stayed here 4 nights - we stayed in one of the quad rooms. There is a lift for all floors. Hotel room was very clean, bathroom was modern and clean. Small fridge in room. Staff was friendly and welcoming (and english is not a problem). We did not eat breakfast at the hotel. The best attribute of Hotel Krone is the location. The old town is not real big, so everything was within easy walking distance (as is the train station). Even the lion monument is within a 10-minute walk. There is a coop supermarket almost directly behind the hotel - great for picking up cheap(er) snacks, drinks, etc. Would definitely recommend.

    Nice stay in Lucerne”

    We spent 3 nights in Lucerne at the end of our 21 day Switzerland trip in September 2018. We chose one of the apartments available from Alstadt Hotel Krone. The apartments are across the Weinmarkt Square from the hotel in an historic building. The apartment was large and clean with comfortable sofa, king bed, kitchen, roomy bath with washer/dryer. No elevator, but easy stairs. Breakfast was available from the Hotel but we felt it was too pricey so enjoyed finding nearby tearooms for breakfast. Very quiet location. Excellent location in old town Lucerne. We highly recommend.

    We spent two nights here. It was a fully furnished apartment with kitchenettes, washing machine & coffee/tea maker etc. Conveniently located at the old town of Luzern, the atmosphere was so amazing that we stayed in such a historical building. You can access to anywhere in Luzern by walking distance or public transport that hotel provided to guests for free! Staff was friendly and helpful, we would definitely come back in our next visit! Highly recommended❤️

    A room by the river”

    Stayed in Lucerne at the Krone. Location was very good and easy to find. The hotel is located a short distance off the river between the covered bridges. Easy to take in the sights of old town. I used the parking option provided by the hotel which was considerably less expensive than parking at the train station. The room was clean and comfortable. I would definitely stay here again. Good value for the money.

    Hotel Krone is a nice, basic hotel in the heart of old town (aldstat) Lucerne. The bed was comfy and the bathroom small, but it was clean with friendly staff and everything I needed. It is about a 10-15 minute walk from the train station so be prepared to lug your luggage. Keep the city card you receive at the hotel as it provides internet service throughout the city.

    A Very Nice Stay”

    The hotel is in the heart of the old city on Wine Market Plaza, and is about 12 minutes walk from the train station. It appears to be an older property that has been given much attention and upgrades. The elevator is typically small and efficient. Being on a plaza it is noisy in the early morning, but not so much that earplugs don't resolve that issue. Our rooms was very well appointed and all features worked well. The biggest drawback we found (not that it was a big problem for us) is the lack of air conditioning. We stayed here at the beginning of June 2017 and the temperature was slightly above its average.Even with the windows open and the fan running I had trouble sleeping well. The beds are very firm but comfortable.We got the included breakfast and found it good and worth our money. Many nearby restaurants are nearby for other meals. This is a very nice hotel if you do not require air conditioning in your visit. I certainly recommend it for a memorable stay in Luzern.

    Good value for an expensive city”

    The Krone is charmless and functional on the inside (the outside is delightful), but it's ideally located in the old town on a beautiful square and a good value for an expensive town in an expensive country. We didn't get the rather expensive breakfast, but had breakfast at the excellent Heini Konditorei a short walk away. The valet parking is not cheap but very convenient.

    LOVELY APARTMENTS IN THE HEART OF THE OLD TOWN”

    We stayed in 2 Krone apartments called "City" on the third floor and "Casual" on the 4th floor in a heritage building opposite the hotel. Access is only by staircase but the hotel provided luggage service to bring our bags up & down on arrival & departure. The City apartment was decorated in a modern style with a separate bedroom with queen bed. The windows opened directly onto the Weinmarkt. The Casual apartment was decorated in country style with a huge bed/living area which opened into the dining/kitchen. There was no door separating the 2 areas. We had a sofa bed in this apartment. The windows opened onto the back of other buildings. Washer-cum-dryer, kitchen equipment were adequate for preparing simple meal. A 3 storey Co-op including the supermarket was only 3 minutes' walk away. Chapel Bridge and Lake Lucerne were only a 5 minutes' stroll away. Breakfast was provided each morning from 7am-10.30am in the main hotel. The spread was adequate and being a continental breakfast, there was no hot food provided. Specialty coffee was a bonus. My family and I would definitely stay here again!

    Spacious clean room with location right in the old town”

    Very satisfied with the size of room, spacious with 2 windows view, 2 single sofa and a coffee table, more than enough for 2pax. The room wooden floor is heated, so do the toilet floor, so you feel very comfy. Very very clean toilet, the shower is good, the closet plenty space to hang cloth, big table and very big smart tv mounted on the wall. Location wise is just right at the center old town, in front of the fountain. 10-15 mins slow walk to Lucern HB, a nice stroll along the lake. You can bypass the staircasess going further down to Spreuer Bridge to cross to old town. Else the shortcut through staircases is just about 5-10 mins to Lucern HB. I am indeed a very happy guest and highly recommend this hotel.

    Don't overlook this property.”

    The property is situated on Weinmarkt [Wine-Market], a charming square on the Old Town of Luzern and dates back some 600 years. If you arrived by train at Lucerne station, it's a 10-15 min walk to the hotel. On Sunday mornings, there is a farmers' market at the door-step of the hotel, on the square. Whilst you won’t have views of the river from any of its rooms, a 5-min walk on cobblestone streets will get you to the river Reuss and its iconic bridges. The interior of the hotel has been refurbished in a modern, utilitarian style. The room is spacious with an even more spacious bathroom with a long bath —- I would have preferred a walk-in shower instead and also please reposition the magnifying mirror! The flow-rate of the shower is high, resulting in an invigorating shower every time. Instead of a kettle in the room, there is a Nespresso-compatible coffee machine -- great coffee every morning. Overall a great value for money hotel and have an apple on the way out...

    The Perfect Spot”

    I would be hard-pressed to imagine a better location to stay in if you're interested in Lucerne (and specifically the old town segments). With a park-and-forget-it valet service, you can waltz into the hotel with your luggage and not have to worry about your vehicle until it's time to go. In the heart of the pedestrian-only old town, you can see shops and historic landmarks out of your windows, access early-morning cafés or late-night bars in mere minutes, and enjoy the flow of the city with unparalleled ease.

    Alstadt Krone is situated in a very nice location because it is close to everywhere. For those who want to find a hotel with easy access to attraction spots, restaurants, shops, transportation, etc. it is an ideal location. The hotel is minimalist and clean but do not expect concierge assistance as the guests have to do everything alone.
