Avoid this hotel at all cost. On our anniversary trip to riflealp in zermat we flew in to Geneva. Spent one night at Metropole, enjoyed our stay there and rooftop dining, not the nicest hotel but a solid four stars. Then a week at Riflealp above Zermatt, amazing hotel and service, then last night at Kempinski and what a huge... More

Beautiful hotel and rooms. Great location. Near the lake, shopping, old town, etc... The staff is friendly. I did have a hard time closing the drapes, which since it's summer in Europe, the drapes are needed if you go to bed at an early time. Do not order food at this hotel. It is very over priced!!! Overall, I think... More

From the outside, the building appears fresh and clean with shiny glass and modern attributes. In lobby, modern fireplace, check in desk and elevators. Once on guest floors, the hallways also appear modern when viewing outdoor/indoor atrium from glass windows immediately in front of elevator upon exiting, the exterior and roof of building are terribly dirty and not well taken...

Having lived in Geneva for 3 years, you can't go wrong staying at the Kempinski. In a city filled with overpriced options, you know what you are getting with this hotel. The staff is wonderful and the location is spot on. One of Geneva's most popular clubs is also located in the hotel, which may be a draw or deterrent.... More

The hotel is greatly located on the lake very close to all nice places. The bed was comfortable but the sound proofing terrible. May naibor came home late night and his door closure nearly lifted me off my bed. Also his nice from the room was heard. Breakfast is good. Try to get a seat on the terrace.

Stayed there 2 nights. Very good service. Big room with all amenities. Good breakfast. A bit overpriced but it is everywhere in Geneva. Close to city centre. I wouldn't say it impressed me but Kempinski quality is definately there.

I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. When I booked our rooms, I emailed the hotel to inform them that we needed non-smoking rooms for medical reasons (my husband and son both have severe asthma). I was assured they could accommodate this request. We did have non-smoking rooms, but the rooms across from us were smoking. The hallways reeked... More

Proper welcome from the beginning would have been nice and even a offer of a porter. I thought the place I booked and paid for was five star. Also we had a terrible experience with the Java night club down stair where one of the staff welcomed us by saying buy a bottle of champagne or you can't sit down.... More
