There are no words in English or French that can adequately describe the quality of client service. From the moment of arrival through departure (they even put bottled water into our rental car when they brought it from the garage), the hotel staff doted on us. We have stayed at every top luxury hotel in the world and would say,... More

Second visit to the hotel. Booked a junior suite, and was upgraded on check-in to one of their historical suites, the 'maharajah suite'. Comfortable bed, good quality sheets and towels, large bathroom, welcome complimentary champagne and chocolates....friendly, helpful and efficient staff....air-con that worked (really appreciated as it was 33C outside while we were there)....pretty terrace for breakfast with good quality...

Location, staff, room, bar, restaurants....this hotel is the complete package. A+. The proximity to Lac Leman and the downtown Geneva area for a hotel with such a high level of elegance and service is hard to find. The Beau Rivage is truly a Gem in Geneva.

Outstanding Hotel, great location, excellent food, wonderfull rooms and perfect staff. Few words describes the hotel, classy, elegant and sophisticated... Prices are in the high end, but acceptable when arriving at such luxury, this is all made with flair and passion

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
