You cannot get better than this property for location, class and level of cuisine at the different restaurants that they have. Among the best. This property is just off the Lac Leman and has the best views that Geneva can get. It is a short walk to the Old Town if you are visiting for tourism.

The hotel staff went above and beyond during my stay including a small tour on some history of the hotel. They made me feel like a VIP to the very last moment. Visiting the maharaja patiala suite Was a highlight of my visit.

I stayed with my family for a long weekend at the end of May. Overall Beau Rivage should not disappoint. I did not put a 5 stars for what I consider a faux pas when we arrived. We checked in at 8:30 pm and the person in charge was pleasant if not "overly flowery" (part of his training I guess)... More

Location, staff, food, accommodation, everything could not have been more perfect. The linen used on the beds is possibly the finest you can get in the world. We where there for three nights and wish we had planned to stay longer; I'm sure we will next time. Geneva is a beautiful city with lots of attractions. There are several restaurants... More

I stayed there on a business trip and staff were very friendly and professional. Rooms were fairly spacious, clean, and modern. While the TV was not working, staff took note of it and prioritized fixing it. The setting is beautiful (somewhat vintage style) with a piano playing in the lobby in the evening. Breakfast was of good quality, although choices... More

I had a brief but very enjoyable stay at the Beau-Rivage. During my visit I organised a business lunch on the terrace of Chat-Botte, which had recently opened after renovation. The food was excellent, with service to match and the changes to the terrace make for more comfortable outdoor dining than was previously on offer. I look forward to my... More

The Beau Rivage is one of the few hotels where you arrive and feel at home right away. The staff is not only very professional, but also very cordial and hospitable. The rooms are unique, the original fireplaces give them a very special charm. The view over Lake Geneva and the Jet d'Eau from the balcony is breathtaking. We really... More

The Beau-Rivage is a true icon of 5* hospitality set within a family atmosphere. Privately owned, one can almost touch the heartfelt caring ambiance. The cosy appointed rooms and public areas, the high quality of Food & Beverage, together with the staff, one can only but confirm that every minute spent at the hotel goes straight to the heart Great!

The Hotel Beau Rivage in Geneva, Switzerland is the epitome of class and elegance. There are many hotels from which to choose in Geneva but if you value your privacy as well as the discretion of a highly professional well trained staff then there’s no other choice but the Beau Rivage. Since 1865 the Beau Rivage has welcomed the aristocracy... More
