The hotel is in a great location right on the lake, took the train from the airport to Geneva Center and walked to the hotel which was very easy to find (approx. 5 min). Staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel felt very corporate and stale. I've stayed at the Kempinski... More

This hotel is very nice hotel. Good location, rooms and service. Amazing view and beautiful breakfast room with very nice lake view. Many restaurants with different cuisines. If you go to Geneva stay in this nice hotel or visit one of his restaurants.

This was a lovely hotel and was perfect my my wife and my anniversary. However, the breakfast and bar was very expensive (€9 for a cup of tea). About a 5 minute walk from the train station, so better use that for the airport as it is much cheaper than using a taxi (€40). We also used the spa which... More
