Location: 5-10 minute walk to the Rothenburg Dorf train station and a 10 minute urban train ride into Lucerne core. 2 minute walk to a bus station that would take you there as well. Room: Styled in a very industrial vibe (which is their thing). The room was on the 3rd floor so the roof was slanted, which made the...

We were driving through Switzerland and found this hotel late in the evening as a stopover for one night. We had a warm welcome from a nice English-speaking young lady and even managed to pop in to the bar downstairs, which seemed to be quite popular with the locals and stayed open till late. Nice cocktail selection, btw. We liked...

Plus: Very helpful staff! Large, very comfortable rooms. Interesting concept for a hotel! Easy access to Luzern - the bus stop is next door - it takes basically 10 min and you are there; easy access to the highway if you are travelling by car. Quiet neighbourhood. Very, very, very nice restaurant & bar! Minus: Expensive, but then all Switzerland...

It's not easy to find a reasonably priced hotel for a family of four in many cities in Europe. feRUS was great for our trip. The hotel is only a 5 minute ride on bus #50 or #52 from Luzern's central train station in the heart of downtown. Half a block from the third train stop. So it is not...

We booked the most basic room available, which was clean and a good size in the eaves. The bathroom was small but this wasn't an issue, the shower was good. Plenty of parking available, and there was a good range of TV channels which was a pleasant surprise and the wifi signal was good. Breakfast was good, refreshed quickly and...

Because of the fact that majority of staffs can't speak English, I had plenty of problems to communicate. The staffs just don't care about customer and are not friendly, attentive. The bathroom of room was quite small. The breakfast was just plain. I do not recommend to stay at this hotel.

**Before I make my review, I want to point out some things that visitors should be aware of; There are very few, if any hotels with air conditioning in the area, it's not a common thing to have a/c like we tend to have in the states, so always keep that in mind when booking for hotels in this and...
