Here I was actively deceived by front desk staff at five-star hotel Beau-Rivage. I asked the front desk to confirm my check-out time and was offered a midday check-out. I was surprised as I'd booked a Weekend Romance package deal that included a 5pm late check-out. As I spoke with front desk staff I noticed a printed copy of the... More

The Beau Rivage is wll positioned on the Lake and relatively close to the Business district. I turned up lateish and was welcomed and checked in very quickly. The room was great - very clean and well presented, and the bathroom pristine. I would say that the Beau Rivage is as good as the Metropole, but a bit more cosy... More

This is my second time at the BR, and once again, I was not disappointed. The property is family run, and for some reason, the employees seemed to try harder. The rooms are large, bed very comfy...the bathrooms were spotless. The smellies they give you in the bathroom are all Lavin products. What was most compelling about this trip was... More

The hotel is in an excellent location, right opposite the Jet D'Eau, about 8mins walk from the Cornavin Train Station, where a train can take you straight into Geneva Airport (or anywhere else in Switzerland for that matter, and France). There are numerous restaurants nearby so no shortage of places to eat, albeit expensive. The main shopping street (Rue Du... More

My wife and I stayed at the Beau Rivage Geneva in May. Rooms are very nice, clean and well appointed. Very old French Colonial style. The staff is courteous and tries to be helpful. The downsides were few but rather serious. 1) The expense - we paid about $400 per night for a "superior room" with a view of a... More

We pushed the boat out to stay here for our 8th anniversary. We wanted somewhere with a view of the lake and our room certainly had that. We wereon the second floor and our balcony overlooked the Jet d'Eau (when it was working). The room was huge, and although not nealry as flashy as the pictures on their website, was... More

This 5-star hotel offered my husband and I great service. We stayed in a junior suite. They had water and fruit available when we got there (refreshing). They brought roses to the room. I highly recommend the luxurious, bath tub. Robes and slippers are a must with me. They had them too. The conceirge was most helpful (in English). The... More
