The President Wilson is what you expect from a 5 star. Service was perfect from check in to check out with helpful, friendly staff. The rooms are well furnished with comfortable beds, nice bathrooms with amenities and kept spotless. The gym leaves a bit to be desired from, but the lakefront location for beautiful morning runs makes up for it.... More

If at all possible. This hotel is the furthest from the central action but far nicer than the Kempinski in my view. Great pool terrace. Lovely rooms with free wifi. The Saudis flock here in the summer with their expensive toys and entourages for a reason. While the gym is open 24/7, it is the only weakness of this otherwise... More

We stayed here for 2 night, unfortunately on Saturday and Sunday nights. NOTHING is open on Sundays in Geneva, and we had an early flight on Monday. The city was beautiful but everything was closed. Hotel President Wilson was extremely beautiful and high class. The breakfast was superb as was the overall service. Walking distance to the old town and... More

Breakfast is amazing, we had the romance package and were upgraded to a suite, Geneva is expensive and so is the hotel BUT you get what you pay for, don't be surprised to spend £25 on a cocktail but the hotel and its location makes it worth...

My wife and I spent 3 nights at the hotel and generally were very impressed. The hotel were prompt and obliging in response to some pre-arrival emails. Arrival was a breeze and a delight.

I was at this hotel a couple of times during my business trip. Very well located, room services are not that expensive and even the room sizes for standard types are "bigger more than the average. Good walk from the hotel by the lake. I would come back.

1. Feels like an eighties hotel, they need to update the whole hotel, to make it come to par with todays standards. 2. Concierge staff needs to be trained properly, they are not very good at giving accurate information. 3. Overall impression more of a 3 star hotel.

When I checked in, the desk clerk insisted I had reserved a smoking twin room -- notwithstanding my reservation. The hotel moved me efficiently the next morning into a proper room. Rooms are nothing special -- quite ordinary and on the small side (for more than US$500 a night). Notwithstanding the rooms, the hotel has some notable features. Decent location... More

The location of the hotel is fantastic, it's just on the lake but away from all the hustle from the carnival. The rooms need a bit of an update, especially the bathrooms. They're using the luxurious Bang And Olfsen TV set which proved the be the LEAST convenient tv I have ever used. The Hermes bath set is superb. The... More
