The "Hotel Des Bains" comes across as the "Grand Dame" in Gerardmer. Our pine-panelled room faced the street and was very comfortable and inviting. The small balcony offered a view of the lake. Staff was very friendly. Parking was free behind the hotel in a secure area. Buffet breakfast was an additional 9.00 Euro per person and was extensive. We enjoyed our stay and would stay there again on our next trip to this area.
