Booked late in the day on a drive from Turin to Paris . Receptionist wouldn't match the Booking.com rate which was a pity . High quality hotel , well located and virtually empty . Underground parking convenient in a town with limited parking . Rooms very good with excellent lake views .

The bathroom does not offer toiletries, just soap and perhaps a shampoo once in a while. The towels are not changed regularly. The carpet in the room is very old and not that clean. The beds are uncomfortable. The breakfast is very poor although the croissants and ham are of outstanding quality. The staff is not generous towards the clients... More

It's been six years since I last stayed at this hotel and it looks like it went through a renovation recently, updating the reception area (which was needed). Good value for money. Lovely views of Lac Leman, the Alps, and Evian (be sure to get a room with a lake view). Located right in the heart of the town center... More

Good value room rate. we liked the free metro/bus card provided for both days of our stay. metro stop is less than 5 mins away behind the hotel, 3 stops to the station, then 4 stops to the lake edge. Next time we will... More

I think we baically got exactly what we had expected and the hotel lived up to expectations. We were happy with our spacious room with great views of the lake and Evian on the French side. The room had everything we needed and I particularly liked the large bathroom. We didn't eat at the restaurant so can't comment on that,... More

We had a wonderful stay here, worth every penny. We were upgraded to a junior suite. The balconies were small but the views were breathtaking with the Alps and the lake. Bathroom had a great tub and nice amenities. Staff was a real high point - very friendly and helpful with luggage storage and calling for a cab. Two quirky... More

Excellent accommodation in a good location for shopping but quite a long way from the lake unless you take the car or bus but traffic really heavy. Staff at hotel were lovely and helpful. However our room was hot and, with the window open, very noisy especially as there were several large groups of tourists in adjacent rooms who were... More
