Behind its elaborately frescoed facade, this perfectly positioned Old Town hotel flaunts a light and airy design ethos, with ice-white rooms, gilt mirrors and inlaid parquet floors. Suites have river-facing balconies.
Most rooms offers views of the Chapel Bridge, the Jesuit Church and the Weinmarkt square.
The Restaurant La Balance serves excellent French and Swiss cuisine and features a river-side terrace. There is also a casual bistro and a piano bar at the Hotel des Balances.
From January to March 2016, guests staying 2 nights or longer receive the free 2-day Winter-Tell-Pass, providing several benefits.
