    The location was perfect, and the view From the room overlooking the river was outstanding.

    The price is a bit high and I asked for a late check out and they were not flixlable.

    Very central location, beautiful decor in rooms, perfect view from room onto river.

    The lack of airconditioning throughout, but then I know that this is common in switzerland.

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    We had a wonderful river view from our room which was spacious and very comfortable.

    We found that the price charged for breakfast varied even though we ate the same on each occasion. This was, however, rectified at check out.

    Excellent location . Big rooms with bath tube and "spresso" included in the price. The staff was very friendly and polite. I would book this hotel again, for sure.

    During the Carnival it's a little bit noisy.

  • Single
    9.6

    Hotel is very clean and comfortable. The overall design is very nice. Only 10 - 15 mins walk from the train station.

    There is a staircase at the entrance of the hotel. The staff is very nice to help me to move my heavy luggage upstair.

  • Couple

    Beautiful location and excellent service.

    Bed quality is not as expected as in such an excellent hotel.

  • Couple
    9.2

    We had room with a balcony over the the river and looking towards the mountains a perfect place for breakfeast. The room had every thing and was very spacious but a the decor was cold (the only negative about the whole stay). The restaurant was fantastic and the staff were great. I will use this hotel again for sure.

    Just the decor of the bedroom. It was too cold for the beautiful setting.

  • Group of friends
    7.4

    Great location with balcony overlooking river. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Checked in and out with ease.

    Rooms were ridiculously small for the price we paid.

  • Single
    7.4

    We stayed two nights in the corner suite with jet bath. As our stay was just after 5-days trecking in Jungfrau area, we could be very relaxed in the luxuary room with the beautiful view of Luzern from the terrace. The dinner was also excellent. We enjoyed 5 choice menu, looking old churches, Kapell bridge, Reus river, and the sunset. Hotel des Balances is not a 5-star hotel, however, we can say it is more than five. Air condtioning is not equipped in the room, but we felt fresh breezings from the terrace and from the river. With the windows opened, we were not bothered by noise from the outside, because the car traffic is not allowed in the hotel area. We were satisfied very much, and we will absolutely visit again.

  • Couple
    9.6

    The junior suite design was so nice, with the balcony facing the lake. The hotel is located in the old town part of the city, where cars are not allowed, which made it very quite and comfortable.

  • Family with children
    9.6

    Beautiful and historic property right on the water. rooms modern and clean. excellent service.
