Went there for a long weekend as my son was starting University in the city. Excellent located hotel, service from the staff was good. David was very helpful with any questions that I had. Breakfast was typical European and adequate, Rooms décor is fitting for the style of hotel. It is not modern but very adequate. The view over the... More

I am so surprised by the number of positive reviews and Rick Steve's' recommendation of this hotel. Our room was about 200 SF/night and we paid extra for a view of Lake Geneva. This hotel is in an "old" building but instead of a cute old charming place, this is an old rundown place. Even the hallways, filled with old... More

Great location, the lake view from the room was beautiful. The family-run hotel is very welcoming and the service is great. I emailed the hotel before visiting there and I received their call answering my questions immediately. If you come by train, it's a 5min walk to the hotel. You can take the red elevator on the right side of... More

We must have gotten the same room as the others who gave poor reviews. We could hardly believe the rave reviews we read. We chose this hotel based on Rick Steves's travel book recommendation. Our room was in the 200 Fr. range. It overlooks Lake Geneva. However, the room is in poor shape with peeling paint and stained carpets and... More

We were upgraded to a lake view room for free which was fantastic as the view was spectacular. A little noisy but it was a public holiday and they had a mini fiesta with live music taking place by the lake. Once the windows were shut however it was fine?0! Very comfortable room despite the age of the building. Bathroom... More

We spent one night in the hotel on the Swiss national holiday on August 1st and received a very warm welcome and got all the updates and information we needed to know about the evening fireworks (which we didn't know about). It was very easy to get around to other places in the city and the morning view outside the... More

Day 104 of our Around the World Honeymoon landed us in a nice old hotel very short walk from Train Station. Rooms were nice but the noise was a bit much at times. We were upgraded to an Lake view which was quite lovely. We’d stay there again because of the location.

We stayed 2 nights at the Splendid. The location is in the heart of the city, and a very short distance from the train station. Our room had a balcony overlooking the spectacular view of the lake. We were in walking distance to everything, and the bus to get to the Chillon Castle stops right across the street. The owner... More

I am writing this review on behalf of my parents (even though we too have stayed at the Spendid). Staff are great, very courteous and friendly, nothing is too much trouble. Great location with all amenities close by. My parents also had a room at the front of the hotel with a balcony and were lucky enough to also see... More

We were lucky enough to get a room with the view of the lake on the top floor and it happened to be the weekend of the Grand Prix, the hotel is located right at the start/finish line, okay, if there was no race, the location is probably the best on the strip. The room itself is very simple but... More
