Situated on a courtyard that is set back from the river, this is a beautiful hotel that we highly recommend. We could check in a little earlier than planned and were allocated a room with a mountain view. The room was spacious, comfortable and had everything we needed for our stay, including disposable coffee cups if you want to take...

My wife and I stayed here for two nights in June we had a very nice room with a mini bar and modern clean bathroom. The room was very clean with plenty of space and serviced each day. There was an elevator which was good if you have heavy luggage. The hotel is a short walk from the train station...

Nice hotel in a fantastic location. Breakfast is very good. Staff friendly and very helpful. I stayed in the apartments across the plaza from the hotel. It was huge with kitchen and laundry, great for a family or longer stay.

If you are having bulky luggage with you, don't choose this hotel because it is nowhere near the rail station. You have to cross a couple of rocky roads in order to reach it. Otherwise, it would have been a perfect hotel. The staff serving breakfast is very efficient and nice, and she is happy to serve you tea or...

I stayed there for 3 nights in October. I loved it - the location is great (also not too far from the train station, even with the luggage it's a nice walk.) The cobblestone street was a bit noisy early in the morning, when we were going back to train station, but it representet no problem to luggage dragging. You...

Stayed 3 nights in October, would highly recommend. Easy 10 min walk to/from train station even with luggage and over the cobblestones. Hotel is very clean, modern and room was a good size for Europe. Room amenities were really good, including an espresso maker and fridge! Bed was exceptionally comfortable. Staff were friendly although their recommendations weren't so great. Breakfast...

Hotel Krone is right in the middle of the Lucerne pedestrian area, which is FANTASTIC once you're there but a little tricky to find if you're traveling by car. We had to park a few blocks away and explore on foot to find the hotel. I highly recommend using the valet, which was a little spendy at 27 Franks a...

We loved the location, we could walk everywhere, the hotel was very good, friendly staff, comfortable bed with beautiful linen, there was a coffee pod machine in our room, but I prefer our own coffee, so I requested a kettle, it was no problem. The breakfast was ok no hot food, and only white bread to toast.

This great hotel is totally out of my expectation! I had a quadruple room with my parents, and my sister. The location is perfectly in the downtown of Lucerne. Breakfast is good, very clean room. The price is very reasonable. Would love to come back again!

We loved Lucerne and loved this hotel. Our beautiful room was actually a studio apartment in a building across the square from the main building. It was huge, very clean, bright, modern and comfortable. We loved overlooking pretty Weinmarkt square. Since its a pedestrian street we were able to have our windows open and not be bothered by traffic noise....
