“Nothing in town is better”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

No Four Seasons Hotel needs to be reviewed unless you are looking for the minor, minor differences in perfection. The des Bergues may be an exception. It simply vaults above the highest ratings of any hotel, anywhere. The attentiveness was astonishing. The gal who accompanied us into our room with a clipboard was a polished and highly prfessional assistant manaager who spent twenty minutes asking what we wanted during our stay. The rest of the staff bowed as if we were Arab royalty. It may have been the very finest hotel we have ever visited. But the size of our bill after three nights made Mount Blanc look like an ant hill. And yet, there is nothing in this world better than a hostiliary run by the Swiss.

Room Tip: Don't quibble about the added cost of booking a room facing the lake. Any other view would befit...

The Four Seasons of course is known for their standard so i will not comment on that, however personally and specifically i would like to mention the great customer service i experienced there the staff were always happy to help.
The layout of the hotel is cozy, it is located in a spectacular location! If you walk out of the hotel and walk to the right you will end up in the best shopping area (Rue du Rhone), restaurants and the famous old town (Vieille Ville) and if you walk out and take a left you'll end up at the famous Lake Geneva (Lake Leman) where you can go for a walk, have some ice cream or coffee and even visit the fountain.
The beds are so comfortable and the view is just beautiful.
The food taste, quality and presentation was definitely up to Four Seasons Hotels standard.
I highly recommend this hotel if you're in Geneva and would like to stay in the city centre.

The arrival was just perfect. We were scored to our room to make the check in. Everything from there was smooth, professional and friendly. We spend New Year's Eve at the Hotel and it was an extraordinary experience. The dinner at the restaurant Il Lago was a dream: the food, the service, the champagne temperature... and after that we had fireworks from the balcony! As I said, OUTSTANDING!

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the 6th floor, it is very quiet.

After a horrible experience in Club Med in Val d'Isere (avoid it!) we were so relieved to be finishing off our holiday with a couple of days here.

It's just the best service and attitudes you can find in the hotel business from the moment we were escorted to our room until we were wished a pleasant and safe trip home.

The rooms were elegant, smart and tastefully decorated. The TV was large, had a huge choice of hundreds of channels (Sky, BBC 1, 2 and 3, ITV 1, 2 and 3 plus many others for Brits) and great surround sound to enhance to listening experience.

Room service was excellent too. Quick, on time and the food was perfection, as you would expect.

The bed and sleep quality was as amazing as you would expect from the Four Seasons. We were a little worried about noise from the main road outside but the sound-proofing cured that. It was the best sleep I had in weeks.

I was asked to call before checking out so they could bring the car down and also asked where my destination was. When I checked out, my car was waiting the the sat-nav programmed for the exact location I was going to (which helped a LOT as we were going to the French side of Geneva airport - a nightmare to find usually, even with sat-nav). They also provided a map.

My better half wasn't feeling great so the hotel delivered some hot tea, lemon, honey etc as a gift to make her feel a little better. A small touch but something that endears me this hotel and Four Seasons in general.

Everyone who works here should be proud of where they work and how they work.

10/10.

Dear MoscowNick,

How nice to hear we could leave you a strongly positive impression to end your vacation with!
It is really valuable for us to get a feedback from our guests on their experiences at the hotel.

We hope to welcome you again next time you go for skiing in the region or during the warmer months, when Geneva is undoubtedly a place to visit.

The hotel is what the earthly luxury is all about. The service is with one word FANTASTIC. This establishment depends on the service that the employees give to the customers. Our luggage came to the room before us, the girls in the reception are highly qualified and trained. They always have a smile on their face. If you choose to reserve from the internet don't forget to write your wishes, they will do their best to give you something more that you did not pay for. (ours was not met because it was x/mass season and the hotel was full.) We chose the a room with no lake view.(750$) The room was posh with a cleanliness and twice a day service makes it incomparable. The bathroom is the kind that you go in and you don't want to come out sort. The classic fare of, flowers everywhere, is very impressive.
BEWARE: Although the official rate of the Swiss Franc to the $ is around 0,90 (22/12/2012 it changes every moment) the best you can get will be 5% less than the official rate. So dollars add up very easily. At the bar two cocktails, two glasses of red Burgundy wine and two entrees and a salad (I admit with white Alba truffle ) will add up easily to 400$. There is no tipping as in all FS hotels 15% is included in the price. But if you want to make them happier live a small tip.
AH YES THE GUESTS: From barefoot Hindu gurus to burka wearing ladies and their children to over or scantly dressed Russian ladies that gives the hotel a very interesting amalgam. You always have a smile in your face when you see them all in the breakfast restaurant. Very good breakfast by the way. So go for it. It is not cheap but in my 50 years of travelling I never came across best and cheap. There is good and cheaper but never best and cheap. So if you are of my philosophy, instead of staying four days in good stay two days in best. It is a way of life. So go for it.

Room Tip: If you are going to reserve lake view rooms prefer the (looking at the hotel)the right hand side roo...
