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. The room was beautifully appointed and the bathroom was a dream; spacious with lots of hot water. The breakfasts were heavenly and reasonably priced at... More

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

The hotel is located approximate to the lake and within walking distance to the annecy old town. The hotel car park is available in house, but the reception must be addressed first.

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!
