With a lake view room, this hotel (the only private one in Geneva) was a delightful place to stay. The hotel's staff were very helpful and the location of the hotel meant that everything was a short walk away.

The Hotel Beau Rivage is very well located in Geneva, a 5 minute walk from the train station. The hotel overlooks Lake Geneva and is very central to shops, old town etc The hotel has a very nice reception area, although there is a fountain in the middle which you have to kind of squeeze round every time you go...

I stayed in Beau Rivage twice, and will come back. I had a very bad cold during the stay and the hotel staff were really helpful by finding me a doctor. I loved the variety of food in the room service, enjoyed the choice of European or Thai food a lot.

The hotel is beatifully and conveniently located in a baricentric location in front of the lake. The style is somehow oldish and one may like it or not, but everything is kept perfectly and fresh flowers are everywhere. The large room was done twice daily , a very comfortable down covered the bed and the bathroom was spacious and immaculate.... More

This Hotel is owned still by the Mayer family since 1865 and this is one of the highlights of our entire Hotel experiences. The location is great, overlooking the Lake & the Jet d'Eau & very close to the shopping (all the watches). The Hotel is totally refurbished & still retains the original features of the property. The restaurant is... More

This is a luxury hotel right on Lake Geneva. It is a 5-star hotel with lots of ambiance and a few minor problems. The location is excellent. Right on the lake, in the middles of the shopping district and restaurants. The rooms are spacious and clean and beautifully decorated. ( The hotel first opened in 1865 and has been lovingly... More

I have stayed at some of the better places around Europe and this place is in the top 5. Would highly recommend it and when / if... More

We stayed one night on our way back to the UK. We booked via the hotel website on the morning of our arrival. We booked an executive room with city view and it was half price!, although we still had to pay extra for breakfast. All the staff we came across, the doorman, front desk and bar staff were very...

This hotel on the lakefront was excellent. It was sparkling clean, comfortable and the staff members in the hotel were extremely helpful. Of course, the price was high, but Geneva is a very expensive city. I wish I could afford to stay at this hotel again.

I really like the Beau Rivage in Neuchatel Switzerland and when travel plans recently changed while in Europe to detour me through Geneva, I booked a room using expedia following a quick review of the positive reviews.
