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

Beau Rivage in Geneva (be aware that there is a Beau Rivage in Lausanne, the two hotels do not have any connection) can really be felt as a European historic landmark: not only Elizabeth - the last Empress of Austria - slept there before being assassinated, but also other significant names. The hotel is mentioned in the English, German, French... More

I came to Geneva to visit with my son two weekends ago. We stayed in the suite overlooking the fountain and lake with a huge balcony. It was lovely. Everyone was incredibly kind and no detail was overlooked. When we needed a suit jacket dry-cleaned at the last moment for dinner, it was delivered just in time. We ate at... More

I was very impressed by my last stay at Beau Rivage in Geneva. The recently renovated room was a dream of luxury. From my pillow I could admire the "jet d'eau" on the lake. The bathrooms were beautifully decorated with tons of marble in different shades of grey. The only thing I did not like was the tablet from wich... More

This is one of the last family-owned and family-run luxury hotels still left in Geneva (if not in all of Switzerland. Most of the luxury hotels are now owned by gigantic corporations and have become standardized and lost their personal touch. Not Beau-Rivage. It is cool, timeless, elegant, high-class, very sexy and luxurious. Fabulous and decadent and original. I stayed... More
