“Small room, centrally located”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

We stayed for only one night. It was a very small cramped room, but the location couldn't be better. Some of the rooms have a view overlooking the river, which would have been nice. Since we were only staying one night, we didn't bother to look into upgrading our room. It was clean and the bed was comfortable, but it was plain and a bit too small for a longer stay. Parking was a bit of a challenge - you have to park in public parking around 5-10 minute walk from the hotel. It's definitely not far, but don't take too much luggage with you as it's hard to lug around. You can't drive up to the hotel and drop it off. Parking is free as long as you leave by 8am the following morning and then it cost 1 euro per hour, which is not bad at all.

This is a lovely historical building. The rooms although quite small are well appointed and very clean. The benefit to this hotel is that you are right in the centre of town. The staff were all extremely friendly and accommodating.

This is a great hotel. The setting couldn't me any nicer. We had a balcony room that overlooks the canal on the island and the setting was perfect. The name of the room was the Emperor room . While the room was on the pricey side the setting made it so perfect. We stayed during the Tour de France. While the town was crowded we had no problem with the room or the service. If you want to treat I would recommend staying here.

Was slightly worried about some of the reviews I had read but this hotel was ideal. The bedroom we had was fairly basic and faced the back street with the busiest ice cream parlor ever! The room had enough space with plenty of storage. The bathroom was generous and well equipped. We took our own tea and coffee making stuff but there was a fridge, mini bar (if you wanted it) and they left us water on the first night. The staff were very helpful and friendly - would stay here again.

We did not use a car - think this would be some distance to park but the walk from the train station was less than 10mins and you are right in the heart of Annecy which is wonderful. Did not try breakfast as it was cheaper just below but the breakfast room looked very pleasant.

Room Tip: Sure canal view rooms would be good but we only slept here so were not bothered by the view. Our roo...

We had stayed here one night in 2005 and had a small but comfortable room in the eaves. We feared our tastes had gotten too rich for the Palais in the intervening 8 years, but not so! This time we had a larger room and the most comfortable bed (2 twins made up together) of our 2-week trip. Everything was meticulously clean, the bathroom spacious and well-functioning, and we had no noise from outside (on the canal) nor other guests. The location remains perfect, and the staff was extremely helpful in making restaurant reservations for us in advance of our arrival and arranging for an early morning taxi for our train departure. Marie in the breakfast room prepared a delicious spread all 3 days and started our day happily with her good cheer! We love this place!

Room Tip: Rooms ending in 01 were recommended by hotel staff as being somewhat larger and quieter with canal v...

this hotel has a great downtown location. We spend a night here and I was glad it was only 1 night. Annecy is a great stopover place for a night and the hotel is in a charming neighborhood. However as there is nowhere to park your car you will need to carry your luggage for a pretty good distance from some nearby parking lot. So getting in and out is a problem. Once you are in the hotel, the rooms are very very small. We had 2 rooms of the same size. Bathroom is nice but also small. No A/C so we had the choice between sleeping with a open window and have the downtown noise of drunk people yelling on the street or closing the window and roasting. Didn't try the breakfast. But there are good coffee shops nearby. Overall remember that this hotel has major downsides (carrying luggage through downtown streets, small rooms, no A/C) but location is rewarding

The location is the best thing going for this place. Everything in the old city is right outside your doorstep. The hotel and rooms are clean but spartan. The sizes of the rooms vary I and from their online pictures there seemed to be more options but we were assigned a small room as they were" full". If you are traveling with children or are driving then there are abundant choices all around the lake. I would assume that the front desk can converse in English and German.The staff was friendly and professional.
