“Great Room, Great Staff. You should stay here!”
Reviewed 15 March 2014

Europe has many hidden gems and the Krone Hotel & Restaurant in Buochs, Switzerland is definitely one of them. If you have need of a place to stay in the Stans area, I can highly recommend the Krone.

I stayed at the Krone for approximately two months starting in January 2014. Beginning with the moment I arrived on the second of January, at a time when everything was still closed for the holidays, the Krone staff was right there to help and I settled in easily and comfortably.

A full service hotel, the Krone boasts a warm and inviting restaurant and bar which features traditional Swiss dishes of the region. Of note is its popularity with the local residents - always a clue to the savvy traveler that tourism is not the mainstay of an establishment's success. A reservation for dinner - particularly on a Friday or Saturday night, or when the theater across the street has a show playing - is often a good idea, so ask ahead. The Krone also has a rather popular Sunday brunch available.

The faces of the Krone are Peter, Daniel and Marianne - three of the most friendly and genuinely helpful people one could hope to have as hosts. All are fluent in English so for those of us who don't speak Schweizerdeutsch - the major German dialect of the region - communication is easy and effective. All are very knowledgeable about the local area and creative with their recommendations.

There are three grocery stores within walking distance of the Krone - one, a Spar, is across the street - and is the only one open on Sundays (until 1 PM). The other two - a Migros and a COOP - are both about a 10 minute walk down Ennetburgerstrasse - should you need anything like a snack, a band aid, or some shampoo. The COOP has some very good wines at reasonable prices. Migros does not sell alcoholic beverages.

Public transportation is easy to use and is less than a two minute walk from the front door of the Krone. The 'Buochs, Post' (Post Bus) stop has at least two buses an hour beginning shortly after 5 AM until just after midnight every day of the week - including Sundays. The number 311 bus will have you at the Stans train station (bahnhof) in 12 minutes or less. From there you can board a train to Lucern or to the picturesque resort town of Engleberg.

Arrivals of both buses and trains are coordinated so that one walks off of one and gets right on to the other with virtually no waiting before departure - and yes, you really can set your watch by the departure of a Swiss train. Buses and trains are clean and the staff are friendly and courteous. One should never hesitate to take public transportation in Switzerland - it is one place where it REALLY works.

But if you have a car ... the Krone can help with that too. They have quite a number of parking places for use by hotel guests.

Whether you plan a short or an extended stay in central Switzerland the Krone will meet or exceed your needs and expectations. I'm pleased to be able to recommend the Krone Hotel and Restaurant to anyone looking for a nice place to stay while on business or vacation.

I was working near Buochs and needed somewhere to stay. Marianne, Peter and Daniel were so friendly, helpful and kind that I stayed long term. The hotel is well decorated and well maintained and the resturant is excellent. The view from my window of the lake and mountains was to die for. I could not have been luckier finding the Krone and feel privileged to have had the opportunity to stay here. Buochs is also a nice town with friendly residents and well situated for a short stop just passing through and also staying longer visiting the beauriful surrounding area (including Lucerne which is only 15 mins away by car). I cannot recommend the Krone enough, and as you will see from my other reviews, I am difficult to please.

Room Tip: There are speed cameras in the tunnels between Buochs and Lucerne - drive carefully!

I lived and worked in buochs/stans. I saw this old building rise from the ashes. I had seen it be refurbished and had heard wonderful reports about it.

My personal circumstances in August of this year meant i needed a room for over 4 weeks. Marianne and the Krone team were fantastic. My room, was large, clean and airy. I was there in the hottest part of summer. Yes it was warm, but not unbearable. The food is fantastic. The rooms were kept exceptional. All the staff were very approachable, helpful and friendly.

If you want or need somewhere to stay in Buochs, Stans or Beckenreid, id recommend the Krone. Its a fantastic hotel, fantastic setting and run by fantastic people.

No, im not related to them :-), but i feel passionate about how i was welcomed and treated.

Enjoy your stay...!

We were struggling to find a hotel for Sunday night, hotels closed, too expensive, not friendly and finally arrived here. Receptionist so helpful with hotel services, information on the town. Breakfast was extensive and nothing was too much trouble. Kept in my favourites for our next visit to Switzerland. Sally and Alan

Very nice hotel in the centre of the small town of Buochs, Rooms are simple but clean, staff very friendly and helpful, good breakfast. Perfect for stopover or longer stays as there is plenty to do in the area.

Fantastic food, super rooms but shame about the church bells which ring every quarter of an hour! No air-conditioning so it's necessary to keep the windows open in the summer. Our next stay is in November so there won't be a problem.

Room Tip: Our room overlooked the courtyard and was lovely!
