About Altstadt Hotel Krone Luzern, Lucerne

Modern hotel in a historic building in Lucerne's Old Town

In the medieval Old Town

On the northwest bank of Lake Geneva, Best Western Hotel Krone is set in a historic building in Lucerne's medieval Old Town. You'll be a 2-minute stroll away from the River Reuss, and it's a 10-minute walk to the main train station, Bahnhof Luzern.

The art of Chapel Bridge

The Kapellbrücke is the oldest covered wooden bridge in Europe, with remarkable artwork on the interior as it cuts diagonally across the river. Lucerne Culture and Congress Center is a focal point for the city arts scene, hosting regular concerts and exhibitions.

Breakfast on the terrace

Breakfast is served each morning in the hotel restaurant which has a summer terrace, and an Internet corner is provided in the lobby. Valet parking is on hand as you make your way into the hotel building which, despite many renovations, has been standing since the 14th century.

Free WiFi in each room

The hotel's 29 guestrooms offer plenty of space and have free WiFi, so you can easily upload your holiday photos each night. If you feel in the mood for a little refreshment, there's a coffeemaker and minibar in each room, as well as a safe for keeping your valuables secure.

Altstadt Hotel Krone Luzern, Lucerne
Great location and a new standard for helpfulness
Great old hotel in a terrific location in the old town. Staff were fantastic - I left medicine in the room fridge and the hotel contacted me, and arranged to send it on for me. By contrast, I have made the same stupid error in the past, but no previous hotel has proactively contacted me, nor been as helpful. Only downside: it’s an old building so there is no a/c, so the room was a little warm at night. To their credit, the hotel had supplied a couple of fans which really helped.

Adorable hotel in the heart of Old Town
The only reason I can’t give a perfect review is that there was construction going on and made for some very noisy mornings (I didn’t think to ask about that beforehand though). The hotel is in a perfect location right in the center of Old Town and walking distance to the Lucerne train station and buses. The rooms are super cute and comfy and they have an amazing (and very reasonably priced) breakfast buffet. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I will absolutely stay there again but would probably try to book a room off of the street side. Thank you Krone!

Great location, cute hotel
We really thought this hotel was delightful! Very friendly front desk. allowed us to check in quite early since we had an early flight arrival, and the room was ready. That was very helpful. My one and only complaint was NO AC!. So there were fans, and we could open the windows at night, but there were quite a few mosquitos while we were there in early July! So I think Spring, fall or winter stays are recommended!
