Tis hotel is a ten minute walk from the train station on the other side of the river. We stayed for two nights (July 5-6, 2013) and had a river view room with a small balcony. The view from the balcony was stunning. The room decor is modern with a minimilist flavor. The bed was comfortable but we had trouble sleeping due to having no air conditioning in the rooms. The only option is to keep the windows open and prey for cool weather. The bathroom lights make that small room so hot you can be sweating again soon after taking a shower. Restaurant serves good food but gets crowded and reservations are highly recommended. Luzern is a lovely town. Although we loved the views from our room and the location of Hotel des Balances, next time we visit Luzern we might opt for an alternative accommodation with air conditioning depending on the time of the year.
