      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.

      What a great location


      We stayed for two nights at the Hotel Krone and appreciated its location.

      The hotel is close to the river and convenient for sightseeing and shopping. We found it a pleasant and easy walk from the train station. My wife and I were fortunate to have been given a big family room with loads of space to spare. The kettle and complimentary tea and coffee was a bonus as this is seldom found in European hotels. We were able to use a computer with free internet access and found this convenient for sending messages home. Breakfast was good and we were able to cook our eggs the way we liked them.

      The only drawback is that the hotel is situated in a vehicle-free zone. This meant that goods and service vehicles had to enter the area after hours. The sound of heavy transport can be disturbing if you are a light sleeper.

      Very Noisy


      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.

      No Airconditioning


      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.

      Wonderful Experience


      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.

      Very Nice Hotel!


      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.

      They have an elevator up to the 4th floor now - but we had a studio on the fifth floor (the only room on that floor), we had to walk one flight of stairs - which was alright. The room was equipped with kitchen and stove - but no utensils and cooking equipment for some reason...

      I felt like I was in an IKEA show room when I first entered our room: very nicely renovated. View of the clock tower.

      Breakfast is included - and it was nice too: people can make their own soft boiled eggs. That coffee is like cappucino to me... Very delicious.

      Excellent location - right in the middle of the Old Town: all the shops are right there.

      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.

      Fun and games in Switzerland

      Despite the grey and gloomy skies, today was a day filled with fun and games. It all started from 5am - this is how our day panned out :)  #1 - The blanket. Last night, Karen and I took one set of bunk beds (Karen on top bunk, me on bottom bunk). Unlike everyone else, I used my blanket to sleep as I had felt cold (was probably fighting the last bits of the stupid cold I'd come down with the other day). At about 5am, Karen kicked off her blanket. Theoretically it should ...

      ... see the art collection, that meant I would only have a minimal time to see the town. Our reservation in Germany required that we arrive no later than 8pm, so that left us just under 2 hours here. Nonetheless I took off from the car with zeal and walked around the riverfront and across it’s famous Chapel Bridge, which built in 1333 is the oldest covered bridge in Europe. This section of town was quite scenic, but for such a small town population-wise, I ...

      Today we just enjoyed a quiet day walking around the streets of Luzern and enjoying the town. We went on the small tourist train which takes about 45 minutes to go around the town with a commentary. It was a very enjoyable way to learn more about Luzern and it's history. I then went and enjoyed a quiet ale in a the beautiful city square while the ...

      ... it be that they think that one day they will grow again.

      - Talking about shoes. I've never seen so many single shoes being abandoned in the streets of Asia. And they are definitely everywhere.

      Would I travel to Asia again? Yes, of course! I loved every minute there even though sometimes the asians drove me up the wall. But generally it's friendly, peaceful and veeeeerrrrrry laid back.
