Reviewed 23 January 2012

I book the Best Western Krone via HRS. To come to the hotel with the car was a problem, because it is placed in a pedestrian zone. When we came to the hotel by foot, we were told, that we can come with the car directly. You will let there a key, they park the car for you over the night (for 27 Sfr) and bring it back at agreed hour next morning. I was surprised, when i realized, that we will get a room in the Magic Hotel some 150m away, which belongs to the Best Western, however the breakfast and the reception is in Krone Hotel. It is not very comfortable, at the web page I have not noticed such information. We've got the Angel room, which means, that the room is furnished with sculptures and pictures of angels. On the first look it looks lovely, but later rather kitshy.
There were floor heating and the room was overheated, the sleeping quality was not very good. the hotel is not worth the value (260SFr for double room with breakfast), the room carried the marks of usage significantly (not proper light, scratched color, etc.).
Wifi is in the room.
For such a hotel a would expect the breakfast with wide variety of choice.
The hotel is placed in very heart of old town, but I would not recommend this hotel, and I will try some else next time.

Friendly and efficient check-in. Short walk from the train station, even in the snow. Super location. Room was spacious with a view.

Room Tip: Top floor, double room.

If you are traveling by Eurorail, the hotel is less than 5 minutes walk from Lucerne Railway station. Lookout for the Chapel bridge and cross the bridge. You will find few lakeside cafe & restaurants walk along the river shale and take the first right turn which will lead to a fountain. The hotel is right above the fountain. We paid 277 Swiss Franc per night which included breakfast for 2 adults and one child. The room over looking the fountain square. Seems to be nice.There is a great souvenir shop near by, if you walk past the fountain towards the main road, it is on your left side. If you are arriving by early morning train you can keep your luggage at Hotel and proceed to Alpnachstad (Take the train to Sarnen as far as Alpnachstad, platform 12 or 13)
Alpnachstad – Pilatus Kulm by COG WHEEL TRAIN @ Pilatus Klum .

I checked into this hotel just a few days ago. Although I was WAY early for check in, the owner/manager, checked me into his Honeymoon Suite. The place was HUGE and looked like a palace (Nope, didn't pay a dime more). I had a balcony, overlooking the river/lake and the famous Chapel Bridge. A great way to end my day, smoking a cigar, watching the lights glimmer off of the water.

House cleaning came everyday and breakfast was included. The breakfast was a tad lacking, although it was adequate enough.

There were many, many, many restaurants and shop nearby, including a Coop. The train station was also less then a third of a mile away.

For MY experience, this hotel is top notch and yes, I would recommend it to others.
