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... More

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... More

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... More

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.

Very interesting decor in the rooms, admittedly it looks like they forgot to paint the walls. In saying that the bed was incredible, and the room was very spacious and comfortable. Restaurant below was lovely, if a little expensive. But we didn't find anywhere in Switzerland much cheaper so seemed like fair value.

Stayed at the Ferus hotel for 4 nights when working in Luzern. The hotel is nicely decorated and rooms are great value. The bar and restaurant are great both for atmosphere and quality of food. The staff were all really friendly and helpful. Fully recommend it.
