Altstadt Hotel Krone Luzern, Lucerne
Very Good8.0
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!

Great hotel. Excellent location. I appreciated the room amenities and the large space. The room and bathroom were immaculate. I would definitely stay here again.

Altstadt Hotel Krone Luzern, Lucerne
Dirty and depressing
Terrible!!! We didn't like this hotel at all! It's one of the worst ones on our 3-month Europe trip and absolutely worst one we've stayed at in Switzerland. For $200 per night we got a closet, not a room!! The room was so small that we had to walk sideways to squeeze by the bed, and we're skinny people. It was awfully dark. A black hole! There was one tiny window and the room looked so depressive. We hated coming back to it in the evenings. One light was broken so we couldn't see the coffee maker - had to use a flashlight from the phone. The coffee maker had no instructions nor descriptions which capsule was what. I wanted to make coffee but it was a tea capsule. No indication whtsoever what is what. Also, this hotel is DIRTY! Fingerprints all over the bathroom door, toilet flush button, etc. Disgusting! The floor wasn't swept. Don't stay there, choose a better place for this much money!

Great location for Lucerne city center. A little noisy in the morning.

Very nice hotel in the middle of old Lucerne
Stayed here 2 nights in Lucerne during a multi stop trip through Switzerland. Excellent location, very nice room. It’s in the old city which scenic and convenient as long as you don’t mind being surrounded by shopping. If you want to be able to walk to everything, this is a good choice.
