We had a room with a view over the lake and mountains, stunning. The rooms are small but comfortable. Front desk staff extremely friendly and helpful. Hotel set back from the main road so it is really quiet at night. One could sleep with the window open. Buffet style breakfast as good as one would expect. La Voila restaurant rates... More

In terms of view, breakfast and location , this property will reach the top ranking in Annecy hotels list . it's one of my best experiences in European hotels, yet it's a bit far from old town ( 7 - 10 min walking) and a bit more expensive but it will be my only choice if I intend to visit...

This hotel is just wonderful, we paid extra for a lake side view but it is worth every penny. The room is lovely, the bed large and very comfortable, immaculate hotel. Will definitely stay again when visiting Annecy.

The location of the hotel is absolutely stunning on Lac d'Annecy, and the property is out of a postcard. Pay extra for a room on the 3rd floor with a full patio with lounge chairs overlooking the lake—(you'll thank me later). However, I wish the rooms were slightly more updated and that they could be bigger. Moreover, although the pristine... More

We stayed 2 days at the hotel. We booked a double classic room and got upgraded to a partial view of the lake. The room was pretty basic and I need of modernisation which is somewhat a shame when you have such a stunning location. Staff was very helpful and friendly. The city center and old town is only a...

When we arrived, and throughout our stay, the front desk and concierge staff were very helpful. The room was spacious and clean, very cozy bed, and the view was of the lake even though we had a garden-view room. Breathtaking! The hotel is on it's own property, set back from the street so was quiet and serene. The lake was... More

The Imperial Palace is a magnificent hotel overlooking Lake Annecy with mountains surrounding the lake. Our lake view room was spacious and had a small balcony from which you can watch the world go by in the public park below. There's a gourmet restaurant and a high quality brasserie. Attached is a casino where you can also get food whilst... More

On the upside: nice room with balcony, stylish setting and an incredible gourmet restaurant as well as friendly staff. Easy parking as well. On the downside, checking in was a bit hectic, also because the lobby is surprisingly small for such a hotel. Check in as from 16h is quite late by the way. Town centre is a 30m walk... More

Beautiful hotel in an unbelievable setting in a magical town. Grande palatial building, on one of the most beautiful lakes in Europe. Service, staff, location are perfect. Breakfast was great. Have access to Imperial Plage for sunbathing, swimming, and water activities including water slides. Highly recommend this hotel.

Great menu du jour, and the menu enfant is great value topped off by an all out assault on the "candy cart". Put it this way the cycle home to Veyrier was like a time trial stage of the TDF! Good choice of mains for the grown ups and an adequate wine list with a few quality local wines available.... More
