Our first day in Lucerne, the 12/12 /13 we checked into Hotel Krone. It is a very nice hotel centred right in the middle of the oldest part in Lucerne. Once checking into our hotel we walked down the streets of Lucerne to get a feel of its history and surroundings.
We walked over the most famous bridge that burnt down …
Sunday 9-07 Sandy dropped me at Lansing Airport at 7:00 am on Sunday, September 7. Flew to Detroit and had to wait in the World Club until the flight @ 4:05 pm.

Tried to offer my opinion on their product but the group ganged up on me. SAP is the computer we use at work .... Mum and Dad. Not everyone likes it! That's all for today. Very tired.

... everywhere. It was not exactly what I expected, but quite lovely. I walked throught the small city, around the lake and then took a cable on San Salvatore to get a great view of the area from the top. That was the highlight. Another day I made my way to Titlis with another colleague and even though a hot 28deg C at the bottom, the top had snow and was only about 8degC. Another neat feeling..

... After a very satisfying dinner and chatting with fellow travellers at the hostel we repacked our bags and got a good night sleep. We woke up the following morning, checked out of our accommodation and sat on the banks of the lake eating some yoghurt and basking in the morning sun overlooking the glassy transparent waters as swans drift by minding their own business. We then made our way to the station and boarded our train headed to the village of Lauterbrunnen in the Swiss ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Best Western Hotel Krone Lucerne
Nice place to stay
Excellent location in Lucerne. Center of old town and easy access from the train station.
The gentleman in the reception on the morning that we arrived was not so friendly - in fact he was very cold. However, the room was excellent and it more than made up for his attitude.
However, the receptionist in the evening was very friendly and she took the time to explain a lot of nice spots in Lucerne to us.
Breakfast was also pretty good. Good place to stay and good quality accommodation.
Enjoyed the Krone
We stayed at the Krone hotel in beautiful Lucerne in Sept. '05. We had a pleasant one night stay and would recommend this hotel for most travelers.
The hotel is on the Old Town side of Lucerne located on the quaint Wienmarkt square. It was a 10+ minute walk from the train station to the hotel. The hotel is styled in a contemporary manner, providing just enough to make the stay comfortable, but it is not a luxury hotel.
The staff was very helpful and breakfast your standard European fare (breads, cheese, meat, etc.). If we are fortunate enough to return to Lucerne, we would stay at this hotel again.
Right in the middle of things. Great views.
The good - great location for shopping. Nice walk from train station.
The not good but got better - not the friendliest of arrivals but the evening desk girls were much more personable and suggested an excellent restaurant for fondue- Wilhelm Tell (early 20th century boat converted into a very nice dining experiece) located on the other side of the lake accross from the theater.
The not good - remote control was missing - requested another - never did receive. Rooms and hotel decor was very standard but the price was reasonable.
Perfect choice in Alstadt
I have nothing but good things to say about this reasonably priced, exceptionally clean hotel in the Alstadt (Old Town) neighborhood of Lucerne. The staff are helpful and kind, the rooms are large, clean and comfortable, and the location is perfect (there is even a supermarket at the COOP store across the street). Highly recommended.
We stayed for two nights at the Hotel Krone and appreciated its location.
I was in Lucerne in august 2004. I was extremely disappointed with the hotel. It is noisy and more than fifteen minutes from train station. I and my husband could hardly sleep at night. It does not have any view from the room and does not provide air conditioning. Service is quite poor also.
We stayed here for two nights during the first week of August, and (it's our fault for not checking first), there is no airconditioning! The weather was very hot, and the rooms were sweltering. We had all the windows open, and our room looked out over a cute street with shops and restaurants. People were talking and singing outside until 4:00am. We did not get any sleep either night! I will say that the staff was friendly and the rooms were nice, so I would recommend staying here anytime but the summer.
The location is perfect. Located in the heart of Lucerne in the Weinmarket in close proximity to great shopping, the train station, the river and many other sites are in easy walking distance. A wonderful bakery is just a couple of doors down and plenty of eating places nearby. A truly great place to stay with exceptional service and a very friendly staff.
My husband and I were there for our anniversary in Sept 2003. Luzern was the last city of the trip - and I had to say that this is the best hotel out of the 3 we stayed during the trip.
Great find in a beautiful town
We arrived in Lucerne early in the morning and walked around the old, historic district to find a hotel room. Hotel Krone offered us a night in one of their apartments if we were willing to tackle four flights of stairs with our luggage. We did and ended up with a real find--a large studio apartment with full kitchen with a view of the old clock tower! The apartments are in a building across the plaza from the main hotel. We were allowed to eat complimentary breakfast at the main hotel and use the free internet connection. Our apartment was comfortable and well-equipped but a bit dusty. I didn't see any rooms in the main hotel. The location can't be beat with easy walking to shopping, sights, and the train station. No views of the river, though, which is one street over.
