Altstadt Hotel Krone Luzern

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Stayed here for one night and arrived without a booking. They accommodated us wonderfully. Car was valet parked (always a treat) for an extra cost. Room was clean and comfortable. Shower was a bit small but again clean, and the road construction noise woke me up in the morning, but that is hardly the fault of the hotel. Free wifi is always great and a simple, average but nice breakfast included. Right in centre of the old part of town and a short walk to anywhere. Would recommend.

small rooms, road construction noise early in the morning on first day. Beds were good and breakfast was sufficient. Ice machine available, (Finally a glass of ice water!!!!). Located on a very old world and charming square near the river. Would stay again without hesitation.

Huge room , very comfortable for a business stay with decent wifi. Location was great but park on the street beside the river and get a ticket from the hotel to save a few pounds Breakfast next day was great and not ridiculously expensive unlike many other places in Switzerland

One of the most comfortable, convenient and accessible hotels in Luzerne. The rooms are fairly big and the staff is very friendly. Truly offers a pleasant stay for my family when we were there. Attached some gorgeous photos of this wonderful Hotel.

Spent 9 days at Hotel Krone while exploring the Lake Lucerne area. The Hotel is a 10min walk from the train station. ( Note if you walk along the river and take the third bridge, that cars drive over, you will have minimal cobblestones to drag your bag over) The Hotel is situated in a lovely quiet cobblestone courtyard, which our room looked out over. The room was a good sized and the bathroom was small, as all European places are, but it was perfectly adequate. The bed was great and with the blackout curtains we had great sleeps. We had a coffee making facilities which we used to make tea in the room. ( we purchased our own tea bags) Breakfast included a good selection of cold items. We booked our room online direct and received a two day free travel pass for anywhere around the lake area. A fantastic deal to travel up to Mt Pilatus and Mt Titlis at no cost - we loved this offering. ( note we also got free local bus passes for the duration of our stay) Would recommend this Hotel.

Well located in old town. Got a surprising early check in for my family with 2 kids after long travel. Just amazed when reception staff offered the room when we were very preparing to leave the baggage. Front desk staff were very helpful. Decent breakfast. Easy access to train station-scenic walk for 10 mins.

Picked this hotel just on its location, in the Altstadt of Luzern. You have to take a little care driving there because you drive on a walking only zone. This hotel is really excellent. It is clean, modern, and the staff is super friendly and helpful. We had a little problem in one of our rooms late at night, and the manager on duty immediately helped us move to a different room. We were very impressed with the service and the hotel. The breakfast in the morning was also just great. I liked the location, right in the old part of the was so convenient to walk from this hotel. We used their valet parking, which was very convenient. I'll definitely stay here again!

Hotel Krone surprised us in a good way. It had a tiny no-frills reception area but the rooms themselves were equipped more like a 4 star rather than a 3 star hotel. Rooms were quite small but had comfortable beds and pillows, crisp linen, a coffee machine, and a huge flat screen TV. The bathroom was small too but not excessively tiny. It was still big enough for one person to move comfortably around in. Continental breakfast buffet at the hotel was okay. The only downside was noise levels from within the hotel (probably due to the large open tiled stairway and public areas). We were on the 1st floor and could hear noises from the breakfast room in the floor below, doors shutting in the floors above and inconsiderate guests talking/laughing noisily as they used the stairs at night. It wasn't awful but it was noticeable. Plusses = excellent location, great staff, creature comforts you wouldn't ordinarily expect in a 3 star hotel. Minus = noise issues. If this is not too big a deal-breaker for you, then Hotel Krone is extremely good value in Altstadt. I would be happy to return here again.

We really enjoyed staying here and wish it was for more than 1 night. The breakfast buffet had enough to keep us full through the day. The room was large, clean and had a very comfortable bed. The staff on reception were exceptionally helpful and made our arrival easy with plenty of advise on where to go and what to see.

We were so pleasantly surprised to find the apartment we'd booked was recently renovated, very modern, clean and HUGE! We stayed in the Cocoon Apartment on the first floor in the old Guild buildings across the road from the actual hotel (managed by Altstadt Krone). The bedroom is huge with a lovely view of a quiet and quaint street below. The kitchenette is a perfect size with a nice dining table enough for four. The bathroom is very big, shower is massive, and the heat and pressure is fantastic. The buffet breakfast is included, mostly cold offerings and toast, very simple but fine. The hotel is very easy to walk to from Luzern Bahnhof (the main station). It's beautifully placed for wandering the Old Town, right outside the Kappelbrucke, a 15 minute walk to the Lion Monument, and very close to so many wonderful restaurants and the water. One of our favourite hotels we've ever stayed at.. we'd be back in a flash but it books out fast (and we got a very good-value deal) !!
