I stayed at the Imperial Palace for three nights on a work visit to Annecy earlier this month. The hotel couldn't really be better situated, standing in well-tended grounds right at the north end of the lake at Annecy with incredible views looking south towards the mountains. The hotel is a grand and imposing building with some nice architectural touches.... More

This is a stunning looking hotel and it can be seen from nearly every spot of Lake Annecy. It is right on the side of the lake and just a 20 minute stroll to historical Annecy. Perfect! The hotel seems to cater for tourists and lots of business people too, so the rooms are geared up for this, with wifi... More

We checked in late after a long day on the road. The staff could not have been more helpful. They were all very friendly and welcoming. The room was lovely and nicely appointed. The hotel was very clean with a lovely historical flair.

Went for a long weekend to Annecy. Impressive lakefront hotel with beautiful terraces and a lovely Casino. Bedrooms a little disappointing, not as splendid as the hotel suggests but all standard amenities are there. But the lake view is a MUST as it transforms the room. Stunning views over garden and Lake Annecy. Breakfast was ok but self-service was cold.... More

We arrived on a fabulous vibrant Sunday afternoon in Annecy. Lovely building and setting with a brilliant location. We were offered a room with a lake view and balcony for a more reasonable rate than displayed- bonus! The room was tastefully decorated with plenty of room in the main area and roomy bathroom with separate shower. The views across the... More

We stayed at this Hotel for 4 nights and suffered through every one. Our room was tired and very small, the bed almost went to the floor when you got on it and the breakfasts were terrible. The Location was beautiful and the outlook lovely.

My wife and I have just got back from a week at The Imperial Palace a truly magnificent hotel in "the old style".

Had the good fortune of spending the first half of our honeymoon at the Imperial Palace Hotel in Annecy. Where to begin? I will give my (good) thoughts on Annecy in a separate post.

After a fabulous holiday travelling around Italy and Switzerland we decided to have one night in Annecy before heading off home.
