one of the best options for accomodation in Lucerne if you are traveling on budget as Switzerland is really an expensive country. It is 10 min on foot just up in Pilatus strasse.

Felt very average, bland, generic - nothing special. Nothing was exceptional, atmosphere was very dead, didn't feel cozy at all inside. Wouldn't stay again.


Excellent breakfast to go along with all the other excellent ratings. Couldn't be better. Nice quiet street too. Easy walk from the train station, easy to find.

Really helpful staff who were welcoming, and provided great advice on the best tourist sites and on parking locally. Great hostel :)

The hotel was clean and tidy, staff were friendly and helpful. The room is very basic but that is what we expected. The wifi is free but not the best coverage. Although others have said it is not close to the station, the location is good (only a 10 minute walk from the station if that). We walked everywhere whilst staying here, including up to the Lion Monument and had no issues at all.


Lucerne is my favorite city now, alpha hotel is a nice place, super clean, rooms ok! Breakfast great!
