This hotel is absolutely outstanding. right on the River Reuss and in the Old Town, with glorious views over the river to the Cathedral, and to the lake and surrounding mountains.. simply spectacular.
Our room, a pristine Junior suite, with a long balcony facing the river was absolutely magnificent! The decor/layout was stunning, with every amenity one could wish for and an " in room" freestanding bathtub with a lowered ceiling of starlights . It was truly amazing. An extremely comfortable bed, great seating area with a chaise longue and a work area, wonderful linen and every little touch one would hope for was included plus a great coffee machine, even a CD player and CDs!!.
Breakfast was bountiful, a magnificent spread which could be enjoyed out on the glorious terrace right on the river....a extensive cold buffet with an outstanding selection and then hot dishes to order plus gluten free baking for me each day, so hugely appreciated.
The hotel which has recently been renovated, is pristine in all areas and so beautifully appointed. The terrace is superb for sundowners and the bar inside so cosy and wonderful for a nightcap
We found the staff to be genteel, gracious, welcoming and very professional, plus helpful at all times.
We are so thrilled that we chose Hotel Des Balances, it is truly sensational....we hope to be able to return one day!
Nothing at all!
