“Great attention to detail”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2014 via mobile

Just spent 5 days at this hotel I a junior suite, very nice bathroom and very good and attentive staff, the food and beverage is a bit more pricy but still reasonable given the location of the hotel.

We found d there to be a lack of space to unpack and store our cloth although there was a walk in closet it lacked drawers but this has been our experienced at this and other Sofitel properties across Europe .

This hotel was our favorite of our trip! We paid a little more for a water view, which was worth every penny. We had a balcony overlooking the Jet d'Eau, the Rhone and the Vieux Ville. The room decor did not have large flower petals (as is pictured in several advertisements) but a much tamer dark wall covering. The bed was incredibly comfortable with down comforter and lovely linens. We had every possible housekeeping amenity, from a Nespresso coffee maker (with unlimited free coffee or espresso), the usual toiletries, shoe shine kit, loofah, mesh shower sponge, etc. The staff was incredibly helpful when we asked for food and local attraction suggestions as well as getting us a cab to the airport. The restaurant is closed through August 2014, but we ate room service and the food was spectacular. In all, we loved the hotel and highly recommend it.

This is one of the nicest hotels we have had the pleasure to frequent in Europe. Great location and outstanding service from all members of hotel staff. Excellence began at check-in. Hotel provided moist towels to clean hands while checking-in and fresh squeezed orange juice. When we handed them our passports, a staff member noticed that next day was my wife's birthday. On her birthday, hotel sent her a card and an excellent cake.

We reserved a junior suite and were provide a corner room on 4th level facing Lake Geneva. We had an excellent view of the fountain. Room was generous in size and had separate shower/tub, double sinks and toilet was in separate room. Was a little concerned about possible noise from street but windows and shutters did excellent job reducing outside noise. Fresh fruit in room daily and chocolates with nightly turn down service.

Breakfast was excellent with plentiful selection of breads, meats, fruits, cereals, etc. Kitchen would make omelets to order and other hot dishes.

Building had a lot on "old school" charm with open, atrium center. Easy access to train station, United Nations campus and airport. Lake Geneva across street. Easy walking distance to many restaurants and shopping.

Hotel is expensive but feel like we got what we paid for. Highly recommended and would stay here again on next trip to Geneva.

Room Tip: Request a room facing Lake Geneva, a corner suite if possible.

This is a hotel that emphasizes old fashioned personal service and this has surely been a fashionable hotel in the past. But for me the personal service was exaggerated and tiresome. Also I found the hotel old and weary, both the rooms and the common area. And although some of the rooms probably have fantastic view over the lake in Geneva, I did not experience this as I had a room in 2nd floor with a street view. And every morning I was awakened by the noise from the street.
The location was great, though. But I will not stay there again.

Room Tip: Choose a room in the high floors, and with a view over the lake.

Although visiting for primarily business, this hotel overlooks Lake Geneva and is so romantic and elegantly but understated. Staff is extremely accommodating, and the rooms are spacious and beautifully decorated.

Room Tip: Overlooking the water, definitely!

Great location 2 minutes from main shopping and sightseeing. Staff were friendly but unobtrusive. View from the room was breathtaking. Outstanding restaurant. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay and can't recommend this hotel enough.

Room Tip: Definately a room with a view of the lake.

Here we go.... Back to my second home away from home.
The Staff is always happy to welcome you again and again. My room is just perfect as usual and I really want to thank the entire staff of De La Paix to be so attentive with my very demanding details.
You cannot go wrong with this Excellent located Hotel.
The VertigO' restaurant is as usual delicious with great ideas.
The weekly menu is out of this world and if you do not like something The Chef Jerome Bonifacier will always find a solution to please you.
I am so pleased to stay with you all for a while.
Thanks to all of you and especially The GM Mrs Helene Lang-Lauper.
Keep it up!!!
