Video about our room at Holiday Inn Express Kriens.
Excellent short stay in brand-new hotel
The Holiday Inn Express (3.5 stars) in Kriens recently celebrated its opening (1 May 2019). It is located a little outside the city centre of Lucerne, but this doesn’t bother at all. The train station is 2 minutes away from the hotel and brings you in a few minutes directly to the center of the beautiful city of Lucerne.
My standard double room (Room No. 329) had a queen bed and all the comforts you would expect from a 3.5 star hotel. Because everything is brand-new, I was allowed to enjoy the best mattress for a long time in a hotel. The modern furnishing pleases. There are also small comforts like USB connections and enough power outlets. In my room I also found an ironing board incl. iron. An electric kettle helped for the quick start into the day, because you could make a coffee/tea in the early morning.
The internet connection worked perfectly and surprisingly fast. Breakfast was included in the room package at the time of booking. It was a generous breakfast buffet that I was allowed to enjoy the next day.
Right next to the hotel there is a public car park. Across the street is a McDonalds branch. The Swisspor Arena (football) and the Lucerne Exhibition Centre are within walking distance.
