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.
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.
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.

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 …
A day trip to Lucerne 9-09-14
Today it was time to forget the mountain passes and head for yet another
historic Swiss city for a bit od sightseeing.
As before we took the train down the mountain from Wengen to Lauterbrunnen
where we boarded another train to Interlaken.
Here at Interlaken we changed trains yet again and boarded the "Lucerne -
Interlaken Express" service train. This is a hourly service which simply runs
between these two ...
... warm character and a special ambience. Each room is decorated differently, and in different colors. It appears to be authentic old Italian in design. We would stay here again if it wasn't so far away from the heart of Venice.
Our coach left right on time, trying to keep ahead of traffic congestion like we encountered on our journey from Munich into Venice a few days ago. We have a lot of miles to cover before arriving in Lucerne later this afternoon. Around 10:00 we made a 45 ...
We were up bright and early this morning . . . OK, maybe not so bright, but it was definitely early.
We checked out of Our Chalet, walked our luggage down the hill (just like at camp), loaded up the bus and drove to Lucerne this morning. The girls were able to nap a bit and that was nice.
We arrived in Lucerne and had a walking tour with our guide Melanie. Lucerne ...
This morning dawned with a glorious sunrise - the best sunny morning since I arrived, just as my holiday is over! But the lake looked beautiful and bright as I packed up in the apartment and Vicki and I closed down our little getaway in Montreux. It was a fantastic way to stay in one of the world's most expensive destinations, and for much less than a hotel we had a whole flat with all utilities as well. Although the train noise was rather invasive ...
