Fodor's Expert Review Hotel Des Balances

Weinmarkt, Luzern, Luzern, 6004, Switzerland

Built in the 19th century on the site of two ancient guildhalls, this waterfront lodging is full of style, and one of the best addresses in the heart of the Old Town makes this the slickest in its price class. Rooms come with state-of-the-art tile baths, parquet floors, and black-and-white furnishings, and its chic restaurant has a combination as desirable as it is rare: an elegant interior, shimmering river views, and a sophisticated menu. There's a more casual, less expensive bistro area as well.

PROS

  • most rooms have great views
  • the river terrace is exceptional
  • excellent location

CONS

  • top-floor rooms are very small
  • revelers outside can be noisy
  • no a/c
