      The breakfast is super and of course the venue and scenery are brilliant.

      At 6.30 h the bells of the church close by are started. When you sleep with the window opened, you are awake. Eardops won't help ;-)

      The location is just perfect - in the very heart of the city. The staff was very friendly, the quality of facilities was also very high.

      We were travelling with a young baby and a travel cot was provided for us. The rooms were clean and comfatable and we were also upgraded froma city view to a lake view which was fabulous. The breakfasts were fantastic, although a little expensive as is everything in Switzerland. We also ate in the restaurant at night and the food was amazing!!

      The bedrooms were too warm and there was no air conditioning

    • Couple

      I booked the suite so it is very comfortable and relaxing. a very special design of the room unlike other hotel and the particular view outside the balcony which I enjoyed very much.

      the hotel staff is a bit "rude". I want some laundry on the easter day but one of the hotel staffs said impossbile due to holiday. however, when I checked with other staff again later and she said can do it in the hotel. I ordered some inroom breakfast one morning but they just gave me a pot of hot water but no tea. when I called them to report the case, she sounds not happy and not even a "sorry" or "apolos" when she brought back the tea.

      the room was too small , value of money higher than room

    • Single
      9.6

      Des Balances has an atmosphere of family and luxury, quiet rooms, very service minded and friendly, professional personnel, wonderful views (river side), roof terrace (5th floor)

      Breakfast service personnel in relation to other personnel ( a bit arrogant, not very responsive)

    • Couple
      8.8

      Luxurious rooms with very good beds, friendly and helpfull staff, central location with view on the river, eloborate breakfast choice.

    • Couple
      9.2

      The cleanness and the worm service of the staff. Also, they have attention to details, everything is available in the room even the plug adaptor was there. The location is unbeatable, in front, very peaceful lake view, at the back, all the nice shops and cafes. Also, the balcony in some of the rooms is breathtaking and nicer than many cafes and restaurants.

      There is no air condition. During my visit it was fine, but I’m sure in the summer it will be too hot.

    • Couple

      We booked a riverside room with a balcony. Impressed would sum up it up. Great room with a somewhat small but well equipped bathroom. Location cannot be faulted. Service from all staff was faultless. Dinning at the restaurant should not be missed. Overall a lovely stay that we could not recommend highly enough.

    • Single

      The location was magnificent. My room had a small balcony overlooking the river Reuss. The hotel is slap in the centre of the old city, beautifully designed with a very efficient and friendly team of staff. Will definitely stay again if I can afford it.

      Great staff, perfect location and beautifully designed.

      Perfectly located in the city of Lucerne the hotel offers all the comfort of a four star hotel. The rooms are not too big, but well equipped, clean and quiet.
