Love this restaurant. I am a regular there and have always enjoyed the food and the ambience. Plus it's in the middle of the old town and that makes it all more special. My favourites are the goat cheese salad, fondue with herbs, the small portions of raclette, the duck and the fillet. They always change the first page of... More

How can this hotel claim to be 5 star ? There are zero amenities - no spa or gym , no hotel bar / lounge, one local restaurant that is so-so and has terrible service. The check in was nothing notable - no info offered at all. The room is small and I am currently listening to a screaming child... More

Hotel Les Armures is a classy, understated boutique hotel in beautiful, Old Towne Geneva. The staff addressed us by name each time we entered and exited the building, or called down to the front desk - a nice touch. The breakfast buffet was fabulous. I'll definitely stay here again the next time I travel to Geneva.

Historic boutique hotel with great rooms and excellent service located in old city Geneva near St. Pierre Cathedral. Restaurant is warm and cozy with good food and breakfast is very nice. Staff is friendly and helpful. Good shopping in historic area nearby and a short walk to lake Geneva.

Normally, when I travel to Geneva, I stay at the larger hotels along the lake. This time, I thought I would try something different, and had heard good things about Les Armures.

Perfectly located in the heart of the old historic town, this hotel with just few rooms offers something that bigger hôtels cannot: private attention like when you arrive at your close friends or dear relatives house. It is romantic, staff is very helpfull, the restaurant (with same name as hotel) is very cosy and staff as friendly.

This is a stunning little hotel in the old town of Geneva. Its very personal and its rooms are to a very high standard and decorated very stylish. The location is perfect, very central and easy walking distance to the train station, the lake and shops. Their is a lot to do in Geneva but everything is very expensive.
