This is a most wonderful hotel that really should have an excellent rating, but their reservations department is bungling, uncaring, unprofessional , so I had to leave one star off. I also should emphasize that we stayed in one of their renovated beautiful rooms facing the lake , with a little balcony. I have no idea how other rooms look.... More

Having a job that makes me travel across the globe, this is probably the best location that I have ever stayed. I have always been impressed with water bodies, mountains as they tend to relax the mind and bring back energy. The check in was a breeze and got a room that overlooks the lake with the snow capped mountains... More

A rainy day in Annecy but the warm cheery welcome we received upon entering the Brasserie certainly compensated for the inclement weather outside. The brasserie is on the lower level of the hotel, with additional open area seating, a delightful setting with an amazing open view of the lake. The menu was extensive with international as well as local cuisine.... More

O hotel é lindo, perfeito. Altamente luxuoso, muito bem localizado. O preço é um pouco alto e o café da manhã é bom mas poderia ser melhor, tendo em vista o nível do hotel. Tivemos um contratempo com o furto de nossas bagagens no estacionamento que fica exatamente na frente do hotel, os vidros do carro foram quebrados e o... More

Amazing location: right on the lake with a lovely promenade perfect for a calming stroll or jog. Old Town is just a ten-minute stroll away as well. I really liked everything about this hotel: service was great, my room was huge with an amazing view of Lake Annecy, food was good; however, the only thing that I disapprove of is... More
