A simply breath taking location by the lake with the alps behind - on driving up you are met by an impressive building with regal architecture. It all progressively goes down hill after this. The decor is very 1920's art deco , not my taste & it is hard to tell if this is just old or a fashion choice!... More

A wonderful hotel in a beautiful location. And the view - spectacular! We celebrated a 50th Birthday here with a group of friends and it was super. Our room was so bright and well appointed with very good bathroom. However the separate WC smelled of cigarette smoke! The Restaurant was excellent. Worth a stay for the great location and view...

We stayed for two nights in late January. The hotel was busy and staff were courteous and helpful. This is a large turn of the century hotel building in a peachy position on the edge of the Lac D'Annecy. The hotel has been refurbished pretty effectively, the bedroom sizes are good and the bathrooms work well. We had a room... More

This is a beautiful hotel in a beautiful location. A lake view room is a must. The hotel is currently being renovated but it didn't alter our enjoyment too much. I believe the renovations in the music hall will be complete this week. We had a refurbished room with a lake view. The room was comfortable and clean and the... More

Having enjoyed staying at the Imperial in the past, we dropped in for a night en route to skiing. Sadly the grand lake facing rooms were closed for renovations, taking a huge part of the hotel charm away. Only the Brasserie and Casino were open. The brasserie provides friendly service and some enjoyable dishes. My escalope de veau a la... More

This stately property is rich in history yet it remains fresh -- no cobwebs or skeletons noted. Our room was spacious and spotless and the view of the lake and Alps beyond was breathtaking. The staff couldn't have been more accommodating. Truly a lovely place to visit. The one downside was the free drink coupon we were given at check-in.... More

We stayed here for 8 days. Our room had a huge balcony facing the lake and mountains. It was a great place to relax and enjoy the views. The service was great. Free entry to the private beach. We're going back to this hotel for sure. It was worth every euro spent there!!

We were thoroughly impressed with our recent stay at L'Imperial Palace. The property was stunning and the view of Lake Annecy and the surrounding mountains from our balcony made it difficult to leave the room.

Driving up to this hotel was amazing, The location was fantastic and we were fortunate enough to be upgraded to a lake view room which was gorgeous. It was central to everything and forced us to walk, which was definitely a good thing with the amount of cheese we were eating. We even had dinner at the hotel one night... More
