I stayed one night at Le Richmonde before traveling to Chamonix to hike the Tour du Mont Blanc and two nights after the hike. I can't say enough about how great this hotel was!

Most of the nice hotels are on the main road which is very busy. Le Richmond is set back just a little next to a lovely park. Our room was a great size and the bathroom was also a good size.

Everything about Le Richemond was excellent. Great location. Comfortable, well-appointed rooms. Friendly, attentive staff. (The concierge Jonathan was very helpful). The Spa was very nice for a sauna or steam bath. Food and service in the restaurant was perfect. We only had 2 nights at the hotel. Would have liked to stay longer.

We traveled to Geneva with two teenagers before heading to Northern Italy, and this hotel was the PERFECT stop! We were upgraded to two suites overlooking the lake, and it was heavenly. Our test for a great hotel is if it has comfy robes and good coffee. This hotel had both, and then some. The desk staff was extremely friendly... More

I unfortunately was only able to spend one evening in Le Richmond for business, but from the moment I arrived I was warmly welcomed. I do not always feel warmly welcomed in Geneva, therefore I think this is a strong point to mention. I was welcomed into the room with some lovely chocolate marshmallows a cake and a lovely card....
