Beautiful location in the old town, overlooking the river, bridges, mountains and lake.
It was an splendid experience to stay here. If I return to Luzern, I would choose to stay here again
I was not asked if I preferred a room with balcony facing the river. That would have been nice.
The location and view were amazing. The first room we were in had a very strong odor and we asked to switch rooms. They did say that room had been complained about previously and did switch us but charged us for an upgrade as the only other room they had was one with a better view. The bathroom was typical of a European hotel and the shower has a half glass wall. We did have some bugs in our room but that may be because we had to leave the windows open because it was the only way to cool the room.
Highly recommend this hotel for your stay in Lucerne. We loved the location and the balcony views. The staff was very friendly, especially the front desk - so helpful - they truly go out of their way for their guests. Clean room, comfy beds. We stayed in a jr suite and were pleasantly surprised by the size of the room. Hotel Des Balances - thank you for your hospitality!
