The hotel is located in the old quarter of Geneva, at the top of the Cathedral hill, very short walking distance to all the old quarter sites and the English Garden and lakefront. Very nicely done, though small. This is where the Clintons stayed in 1996, according to the "graffiti" in the elevator. Nice carpeted hall, lots of wood paneling... More

A lovely little hotel tucked away in the old town. I regularly travel to Geneva on business, and stay at Les Armures when possible. The style is individual, rooms beautifully designed without the bland corporate styles found in so many other hotels. Lovely bathrooms! Breakfast is substantial and value for money (for Geneva anyway!). Also a good restaurant - maybe... More

My husband and I had researched on the internet before we booked and had read that some rooms had been recently modernised and therefore requested one – we were more than impressed, the colours, the details, the bathroom and amazing shower – just gorgeous. Hotel staff were brilliant, they gave us advice on where to go and what to see.... More

The Hotel Les Armures is an excellent little boutique hotel right in the heart of Geneva. The rooms are furnished to a high standard with stylish, contemporary fittings (widescreen tv etc) and original period features, namely the 17th century wooden beamed ceiling. Prices are a little on the steep side - 6 CHF to iron a shirt! - but the... More

This charm hotel is superbly located in the heart fo Geneva. You'll experience the President's indulgence (Clinton, Carter... ). The rooms are fantastic, the service excellent... The restaurant is vibrant, the food amazing ( try the raclette)

I stayed at Les Armures for three nights in August. Geneva is a very expensive City and Les Armures reflects that. My room was adequate, but not large by any measure. All the facilities were good and the air conditioning worked well. The decor was strange, with dark wood, rough plaster work and yellow sponge paint effect. I suppose they... More

My husband and I stayed at this lovely hotel for one night in early May of 2007 and were very pleased with it. It is a small, boutique hotel with expensive, well appointed, attractive rooms. Ours had a nice view overlooking the square in front of the hotel and turned out to be very quiet at night. We were delighted... More

Among the high-end hotels in Geneva, the Les Armures is unquestionably one of the nicest. I've stayed there a couple of times by myself and once with my husband, and intend to go back at the earliest possible opportunity. (Photos of the junior suite we stayed in most recently are in the photo section.) It is not a cheap hotel... More

After a nightmarish attempt at reaching the hotel, we finally called and a porter came running in the rain to get us through the impossible maze to find the hotel. First on location. You simply can't beat the charm of the old town where the hotel is situated. It is a beautiful, smallish old hotel with an agreeable allure. The... More
