Love love love this hotel. My husband and I decided to treat ourselves to a 3 night stay here before our family arrives and we head off to our favourite campsite on the lake. We have been visiting the Annecy area for several years now and love everything about it. We have had the best few days here at L'Imperial... More

Exceptional food in a perfect setting. This is what I call Haute Cuisine! The hotel is stunning too. Excellent service and interesting canapes! Great time to visit is during July/August when the Fete du Lac is on!

A beautiful, classic and majestic property overlooking a spectacular lake and mountains under a half hour's drive from Geneva, Switzerland. Nice public spaces, but one feels cramped as there's not much of it in the main lobby. Spectacular gardens in the rear of the hotel. Within 20 minutes walking distance to the historic town, a fabulous walk along the lake.... More

We had a romantic weekend here. Annecy is a lovely town and the L'Imperial Hotel is in the perfect location to walk anywhere in town. Bar is very nice also. The garden area is lovely and we had a picnic outside on the lawn. The casino is hot and can be missed.

The Imperial has all the expectation of a high level Western Hotel. Having traveled many places in the world, I am content that their swimming pool is tops. However, it is in door which was fine with me. There is a 25 minute hike from the Hotel to the old town. Parking was free and very accommodating. Food was excellent.... More

Beautiful Hotel – lots of style - modern, large rooms and the view over the lake is spectacular. We booked a lake view room and upon check-in, were upgraded to a room with a large terrace. It was so peaceful just to sit on the terrace and overlook the lake. The hotel provides vouchers for the beach facility next door... More

The location is nice with a lovely view on the lake. The building is elegant. The staff is extremely nice and helpful. The room is clean and up to date. The standard room is large enough and the bathroom almost perfect if they would have a modern shower instead of a simple shower in a bath. The SPA is worth... More

We booked this hotel on Trip Advisor several months in advance as a part of our BMW EU delivery trip.
