This is a very imposing and grande hotel on the side of Lake Annecy. Not sure how far it is to town as we stayed near the hotel and ate in the one of the three restaurants. A modern bar and casino give you plenty to do in the evening. Our room was spacious, very clean and modern. We also... More

We happen to own a very small historic hotel in the states called the Imperial Hotel, which was built in 1898. It was very fun for us to find this beautiful Hotel, so nicely located in a picture perfect setting. It was perfect for us - thank you for being here.

This is one my best romantic hotels. It's so beautiful, so class, so elegant. I loved it. I drove from Paris and stay there few nights before I continue driving to Switzerland. The view of Lake Annecy is breathtaking. The staff are friendly and the food is delicious. I strongly recommend it. Enjoy...

We stayed here in December and even in the winter, the setting was beautiful, right on Lake Annecy. Great location, an easy walk into the charming town of Annecy. The pros: location, large rooms. The decor was okay.. not great, but not bad. We had a balcony, which was really nice for taking in the lake view. The cons: the... More
