“Nice place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

Its outside the lucerne city, but worth the stay. Take bus 21, just outside the train station.. and its 15-20 mins ride (one way). The ride is takes your thro residential places and country side.. and thats what you need to experience there.
Opposite to the hotel, there is lots of greenery and snow capped mountains as the back drop. If the weather is good,... you have lots of trekking and viewing just around the hotel.
The hotel itself is nice place to stay. The staff are friendly and they have their own resturant. The food is good, but does look expensive. Free breakfast... (mainly continental). The rooms and clean and free internet.
Got a free upgrade to room with a balcony and a beautiful view, thanks to the manager.
If are spending 2 or more nights and you like to see nature and the country side of lucerne, then you must stay here.

This was the second time I stayed at Hotel Felmis and I was again satisfied. The locals hang out here playing cards, enjoying dinner or simply having a drink. A warm welcome, nice dinner with friendly service, clean and quiet rooms, free wifi (not such great reception in my hotel room though - I needed to go down to the restaurant to have the best signal). I will come back again next time in Luzern because of the personal service and reasonable price.

Room Tip: The third floor is nice and quiet but internet connection was limited here.

Hotel Felmis is a good three star hotel in Horw, a quiet suburb of Luzern. The rooms are spacious and well equipped, the bathroom is good too. The service at the reception is very good and to the point with lots of good informations and tips about visiting Luzern. The hotel has a good liaison to the centre of Luzern as the bus stops in front of the hotel. Breakfast is very good. The warm food in the restaurant on the contrary is of average quality and rather expensive, you'd better go to centre of Luzern with many restaurants of better quality and not necessary more expensive, for instance the ¨Burgerstube of hotel "Wilden Mann" in the Bahnhofstrasse.

I stayed in this hotel when I went on a high school trip to Switzerland. Bless the staff for dealing with 20+ rowdy American kids and their not-so-mature chaperones! I loved everything about this hotel. It was such a comfortable stay. The surrounding area offers stunning views of the mountains. Very easy to get to Luzern, but I would love to return and just stay in the immediate area of the hotel! Honestly breath taking beauty.

Hotel Felmis is a 20 minute bus ride from the Lucerne train station and downtown area. The bus system in Lucerne is reliable and easy to use, so it's no trouble getting to and from the hotel, even with luggage. The hotel is literally next to the Felmis bus stop. If you do have a car, there's a parking lot across from the hotel.

We had a double room, which is basically two single beds pushed together. (The comforters were even separate, but if you're married to someone who tends to steal the covers, that's a nice treat!) The TV was easy to use, and the hotel has free wi-fi. The shower pressure and temperature was excellent, and the entire room and bathroom were quite large, comparable to the size of a Hilton or Sheraton room in the US. When you leave the hotel, you lock your room key into a wall system and take a smaller, unmarked key with you, for security. The smaller key also opens the hotel's front door in case you're coming in late.

A continental breakfast is included with the room, and it included a cold meat tray, hard boiled eggs, fruits, jam/jelly, yogurt, coffee and espresso, juices, cereal, pastries, and bread that was so good it made me want to steal the loaf! There is a restaurant on-site, but we did not try it. (We opted to eat in town instead.)
