My wife and I have just got back from a week at The Imperial Palace a truly magnificent hotel in "the old style". It sits on a promontory of parkland with public gardens between the building and the lake - wonderful views. The hotel has been refurbished in recent times and our room was on the 5th floor with balcony... More

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. The Imperial Palace is a magnificently beautiful hotel, on beautiful grounds, and very convenient to everything in the quaint town of Annecy. The hotel is impeccably... More

After a fabulous holiday travelling around Italy and Switzerland we decided to have one night in Annecy before heading off home. As it was a beautiful day we walked around the lake and came upon L'Imperial Palace - we sat at a table in the sun and admired the beautiful view! However 15 minutes later the waitress still had not... More

One of the lovely old lakeside/mountain hotels of France and Switzerland. The interior decor has been updated while still keeping the feeling of the spaciousness and elegance of this type of hotel. The gardens between the hotel and the lake are public and very beautiful and you have the option of sitting out on the Brasserie Terrace at that level... More

Apparently the renovations are not complete, e.g. but nobody can fault the way the interior design has been updated while still retaining the old-world charm of a lovely hotel. It is a typical Swiss/French Alpine/Lake hotel in its shape and design - huge. The mountains sloping down to the lake are magnificent. The gardens between the hotel and the lake... More

Depending on what kind of rate deal you can get, I would certainly recommend considering this hotel. It's in a stunning setting at the head of the lake with beautiful views and lovely big terraces for dining, and about a 10 minute walk along the lake to the old town. It has been refurbished in a rather French 1980s style... More

Many rooms in the hotel closed for renovation, those which open for customers are totally new and clean. My advice is to ask room with view on the lake, those which located on the side of the garden not the same good. It's strange that there was no home shoes, which usually obligatory. At least bath robe was nice and... More

Have to say I am very impressed by this hotel. The staff are exceptional and a true asset to the establishment. Every instruction was dealt with promptly, effectively and with a smile.
