We are a family of 5 (2 adults, 3 teenage-adult children) stayed at the BR for two days in June. The hotel was very well set out, but it was certain aspects were very expensive, all things considered. The rooms were lovely and the staff went to a considerable effort to ensure that we had two rooms next to each... More

I think, the best hotel in Switzerland, great food and service in every department. A tad old fashioned but steeped in great heritage. Not the cheapest but its very special and class, with a great location. Be sure to get a lake facing room, a little more expensive, but so much better. Looking forward to many more future visits !!

Family of 4 making a one night stop in Geneva; had two connnecting rooms. Beautiful and comfortable. Hadn't been in Switzerland for years but they always do it right at these top tier hotels in this country. No complaints, other than the $37.00 hamburger my son ordered from room service. Front desk and concierge were excellent too.

Most comfortable bed (when jet-lagged and post-jet-lag). Attentive service when required, but if you want to swoosh in and swhoosh out unnoticed, the staff respects that as well. Housekeeping took note of my late working hours and turn-down was adjusted accordingly. "Control pad" next to bed was genius. Other Geneva hotels should take note. The BR wasn't employing cutting edge... More

If you are looking for a classic european 5 star hotel with top-notch swiss service, this is the one in Geneva. The Beau-Rivage has the very best location right on the right bank quay in "5 star hotel row", and the staff were without fail attentive, but never overbearing.

Murder of Sissi and presumably German politician Uwe Barschel ... founding of Czech Republic ... Hotel history lovers will feel at home in the Beau-Rivage. The rather new tented fumoir on the terrace is great for cigar addicts and a place to meet interesting people. The overall look and feel is a bit too puffy, floral, overladen for my taste,... More

The Beau-Rivage, Geneva, is a genuine luxury hotel in the European tradition, mercifully free of unnecessary modern incursions yet obviously offering the best in comfort and conveniences you would expect from a 5 star establishment. This type of hotel is becoming more rare these days as the international chains take over but hopefully when they do a refurbishment the old... More

Hotel Beau Rivage was the perfect way to end a perfect Honeymoon. It was a wonderful blend of old and new. The bedroom was traditional but light, whilst the bathroom was wonderful and modern. The location is perfect for walking, shopping, seeing and being seen. Staff were friendly and courteous.

One of the best places I have ever stayed (been to a lot of places)..! This place is like going back in time... All the way back to 1865 if you like... The history here is perhaps more than any other hotel you could stay at, from murders of royalty to the country of Czechoslovakia being signed into existence here...... More
