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

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.
