Good in sizing; not too many rooms so not crowded. The room is clean and well prepared for your arrival. We had the room with Lake Geneva view. It was superb. Staff were very helpful and loads of hospitality. I love all flowers there, the view and the breakfast. However, the location might be a bit too far from Train... More

We were four people in total and had booked 1,5months in advance the same table we always take. Well, for some reason io the terrace we were booked inside (sun and 25 degrees outside). One... More

Its a old hotel built around the beginning of the last century (I guess) but completely renovated i a perfect way at the shores of lake geneva. The hotel staff is very friendly but keeps always the necessary distance. Try to get a room with "lake view". The panorama with the mountains behind the water is fantastic. The hotel has... More

Visited with family stayed 3 nights in this hotel. My room was in 3rd floor and with a small balcony facing Lake Geneve (Lac Leman) and Alpes was far in the opposite side of the lake. Room size was just right for us, you will find the room design is very detail and subtle. Food services in F&B here were... More

This hotel is probably the nicest hotel I have ever stayed in. Every thing is perfect, The views, the food, the staff. Attention to detail is amazing. One melts into the bed and pillows. Expensive but this is Switzerland and a very classy place.

The hotel could not have been more helpful in planning our weekend. ALL e-mails responded to courteously and promptly and they certainly delivered the goods. From arriving to departing everything was pretty much perfect. Not cheap, but then the best compliment we can give is that it was worth every single penny (or Franc!) Rooms staff food etc etc all...

This really is a very grand hotel, and one of the concierge/assistants, a young lady that sounded very swiss-german, was particularly helpful. However, I believe I paid for a lake view room, and was given a room that overlooked a parking area. We would have been happy with the garden view room, but didn't seem to have that option. I...

The 1900s architecture hides modern comfort and amenities. An orientalist lounge, a live piano bar, a Michelin star restaurant, loggia and terraces facing the lake and the Alps ( yes, weather permitting, you can see the Mont Blanc). A swimming pool, a garden, this is comfortable and relaxing. Exuberant , enchanting flower arrangements. Expensive goes with it, Wi fi is... More

This must be one of the nicest hotels I've ever seen. Elegance; good taste; friendly and out-of-time atmosphere. Fresh flowers perfume everywhere; incredibly beautiful furnishings; a pretty SPA (lacking hydro massage, but still lovely). The room was comfortable and very well designed. The only accident was that, in the evening, a waiter came into my room while I was inside,... More
