We spent 4 nights at Hotel des Balances in July of this year. We arrived rather early (during a heat wave, no less), but our room was ready so we were able to drop off our luggage and freshen up. The rooms are smaller, but lovely and well appointed. We splurged for a river facing room and ended up in room 503 (on the top floor). The room itself had a very comfortable bed (with down duvet and pillows), mini bar, coffee maker, TV, air conditioning, etc. It also had a good sized terrace with a retractable awning, two chairs and a table, and a lounger. The view is phenomenal and I highly recommend spending a little more for it. We booked through a friend, who is a travel agent, and ended up with breakfast included. Again we were not disappointed. The staff were all very courteous and welcoming, the breakfast delicious and varied, and the location absolutely perfect (a short 5 minute walk from the trains, boats and buses).
