Our room was facing the park and the the lake. It was so spacious that, during our five-night stay, we felt that we were living in a stylish and well appointed studio. The staff was unfailingly gracious, welcoming, and helpful. The walk to Geneva's city center is magnificent, with its changing views of the Jet and of the shore. When... More

Location: I loved the location in a large park. It felt as if I was in my very own estate. Also, it is very close to the lakefront so it was nice to be able to walk or run by the lake. However, it is about 40 minute walk to the old town. Rooms: Very comfortable, clean and nice room.... More

After knowing Geneva from an earlier visit I wanted this visit to feel different, I wanted to find a 5 star hotel that felt like I'm in the countryside but is still very close to the city center. A relative of mine that lives in Geneva recommended "Parc des Eaux-Vive" and after watching pictures of the place and reading some... More

This hotel is placed in the big park near Geneva beach. They have only 7 rooms to rent. We had 2-bedrooms room with 3 sides view. It was very good for our family with son, he had his own territory. We liked walk around the hotel and we saw squirrel and many birds there. The flowering trees were amazing. They... More

The place is amazing, in the middle of a park, 5 minutes by bus from downtown. Negatives ? Rooms in the attic, service minimalistic (but excellent and courteous), decor which must have been great in the 80's. If you care, then go to one of the big guys by the lake, they will charge twice the price, without the same... More

We went to the restaurant in the afternoon with friends visiting Geneva and the staff was down right rude. Firstly they made us change tables, even though all the tables around us were empty (and stayed empty while we were there). I ask if they had anything to eat and the waiter just pointed to a small dish of cakes,... More

Walk around and enjoy this nice park around the hotel. You can cross a gate and see a big rose garden with incredible marvelous flowers! Really a visit for the eyes, ears and heart! Enjoy it and relax!

It might not be the closest hotel to the town centre but it is the quietest - do not come here for easy access to Geneva by foot (unless you jog)!! The views are immense especially at breakfast on the terrace!!

You read that the hotel has only a few rooms and a great restaurant. It is exactly true and it also means there will not be the same services for hotel guests that you would expect from a 'real' hotel. The food is excellent, the breakfast is very french - you only get some bread, cheese, salami, juice and excellent... More
