We have had a political meeting with former presidents and board and executives members. The food was outstanding amazing good and the wine too. The restaurant was super clean, to dine with wheelchairs is possible and the view at the alps is wonderful. The hotel staff is very high trained and super friendly. We will join this place again.

Stayed at "Hotel Balm" two nights in March of 2017. Hotel's pretty good, we thought. Get a room on the side nearest the lake, 'cause the view is well worth the small extra charge. Free parking, friendly service. For Switzerland, where nothing's very cheap, this place is reasonable. But I booked a hotel here mostly due to the Michelin report...

The prices were exhorbinate ranging from 28 chf to 46 chf. We had a schnitzel and fries and that's exactly what you got... No gravy or sauce no...

Our experience was satisfactory at this hotel. The rooms were clean and the staff were good. Internet worked okay. Disappointed with the lack of fridge and tiny tv screen. There is also no elevator, but staff will help with lifting the luggage.

After hours of looking for an hotel in Luzern and finding nothing suitable, I 'zoomed' out a little on the map and found this. It was everything an hotel should be. The staff were so friendly and helpful. The place was very clean; the bed super comfortable; it was amazingly quiet and to top it all the view from the...

Poor and suffocating breakfast with no vegetables. Unfriendly and unhelpful stuff. Uncomfortable and lousy bed and pillows. No elevator. The room door was broken, no body bother to fix it. Moist smell in the room and creaky floor. Baby crib mattress in low standard, very thin and not suitable. We needed to stay extra night before the flight back and...

What a wonderful place to stay in a wonderful part of Switzerland. The staff were very friendly and helpfully and the rooms were of a generous size. The bus service stopped right out front for a short 10 minute trip into Lucerne. Would definitely stay again if I ever return to Lucerne.

We were happy with this hotel, during our stay to Lucerne. It was about a 10 minute drive to get to Old Town Lucerne. We were upgraded to a larger room and staff quickly resolved any concerns (we found the room cold and they supplied a space heater.) room was clean and breakfast was adequate. With Lucerne prices, this place...

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.
