My family of 4 stayed here on a recent stop in Lucerne based on Trip Advisor reviews. We found the hotel to be clean and pretty quiet other than the traffic going by the front of the hotel. We did not find the staff to be overly welcoming but not rude at all. The hotel has no lift so it...

This is NOT in Lucerne...which is the good news; particularly in terms of cost of Lucerne city hotels avoided. It's VERY close...by bus or car...and the village of Meggen itself is a charmer, we were shopping locally for foodstuffs within an hour. The staff are very polite, able, helpful and friendly. The food is superb. The rooms are a bit...

Hotel Balm is less than 10 minutes on the bus from Lucerne central bus terminal, which is directly in front of the train station. Bus #24 takes you to the front of the hotel and you will find yourself in peaceful surroundings with a nice view of the mountains to the back of the hotel and a side garden where...

We stayed there for 2 days on 18 & 19 May and it's great. It was a 15-min bus ride on Bus no. 24 to the hotel with the bus stop right at the steps to the hotel. We arrived close to midnight and ringed the doorbell to be let in. Although there wasn't anyone there at reception, they left...

Based on reviews from Trip Advisor we chose Hotel Balm Meggen. The room was very clean and modern - in terms of style think Ikea. As others have said very peaceful location with church bells and little to no traffic noises. Staff were friendly enough although they seemed a bit run off their feet so we had to wait for...

Very good price obtained through Tripadvisor (CHF 160 instead of 240 for two , including Breakfast). Staff all extremely welcoming and helpful. Complimentary cocktail offered. But stop in from of hotel takes you quickly straight to Lucerne station. Evening menu - CHF 21 for three courses - excellent value for money. Highly recommended.

Absolutely amazing, as simply as that. Service is first class, room is large and comfortable. The have got a garden behind the building and it was so beautiful.

The Hotel Balm is in the town of Meggen which is about 20 minutes from Lucerne. It is on the road going around Lake Lucerne but is not on the lake itself. The hotel is well kept and the room was very cozy. The wireless internet was free as was parking. The views of the Lake are very beautiful. The...
