Great location, excellent food through room service. Excellent views on the lake. But the hotel is really a quiet hotel and its boring especially at night. There is a piano-bar in the lobby that is not so special. The food is probably the bestthing about this hotel. Its really for an older crowd. 50's and above.

Thank you for having taken the time to give us your feedback. I feel very concerned about the experience of my guests in our property. I am sorry that the atmosphere of Beau-Rivage didn’t match your expectation. The Mayer family’s passion is to reinforce warm spirit and complete discretion in this private house built in 1865.

Very warm welcome by front door staff and reception. Suite impeccable although no fruits, no flowers, but great view. Breakfast buffet not up to 5-star standards: not very appetizingly presented, meats and cold cuts not fresh (it was very hot but that does not excuse it), bred selection below average. Service not very accommodating and slow (it took 20 minutes... More

We stayed at this hotel using a free night voucher from the Leading Hotels of the World. We expected the smallest room with no views and no LHW member privileges, especially because it was a weekend night. We were very surprised to see our beautiful suite with the view of the lake. The room was as elegant and comfortable as... More

We loved the location of the hotel. Close to everything right in front of the jet d'eau. Breakfast was very nice in the terrace. Emannuel at concierge was wonderful, very helpful. I was fighting a cold and he offered me a tea that really helped. The Thai restaurant right in the hotel was very good. The room was spacious clean... More

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.
