This was our second stay at Hotel Balm. This stay was not quite as good as the last for one very important reason. I forgot to ask for a lake view room! That said we had a great stay none the less. It is a great hotel. Service: Excellent Overall the service at the hotel is excellent. The people there... More

We decided to stay outside of Luzern, so we chose this hotel based on the reviews here. It was a great choice! We stayed for 2 nights in their "family room", which sleeps 4. The bed itself was comfortable, the sofa bed was not! But the room was large, clean, and had a very large bathroom with 2 sinks and... More

No elevator, no refrigerator, no drinking water either in bottles or vending machines. Bathroom has a translucent door so you can see the outline of your partner on the toilet. Also the sun comes straight through the sheer curtains and translucent door and beams in your face. The concierge we dealt with was for the large part, disagreeable.

My husband, 14 year old son and I stayed here for three nights. Such a great way to end our two week trip to Switzerland. Only a 15 minute bus trip from the central station...drops you right off at the front of the hotel. Peaceful, quiet, serene atmosphere. We had a great room with a little ball only which offered...

We had a great two night stay here. The room was ample with a balcony and view of the mountains. The breakfast was excellent and can be taken on the terrace overlookng the mountains and lake. The staff are all very friendly and helpful, and the restaurant is truly outstanding. Of course everything is very expensive in Switzerland, but this... More

The folks at Hotel Balm make you feel at home, and do their finest to provide striking views and warm accommodations. In easy distance to Lucerne/Luzern, but not in the hub-bub this is an excellent choice for those who want to encounter the striking views of the Lake of the Four Cantons and yet have easy access to lake steamers,...

The staff is like family, everyone is out to make your stay perfect. The hotel rooms are good sized and quiet, there are great views of the lake and mountains from the hotel. The bar downstairs is the ideal spot to sit and have a drink while you listen to some great music on the jukebox. There is a bus... More

Hotel is located at perfect spot, facing the lake and white mountains with small green grass seperating from the next building. Hospitality is great. Breakfast is very good with large varidty of cheese and meet. Prices are reasonable for the area.

This was our first time in Switzerland, and we were looking for a little inexpensive room near Mt. Pilatus. The Balm completely exceeded our expectations. The staff went above and beyond in friendliness, the rooms were adorable, and the views were stunning. We plan to stay at the Balm on any return trips to Switzerland.
