This is a great hotel on the shores of Lake Geneva that is a stone's throw away from Mont Blanc bridge and the centre of town. The hotel boasts well-appointed rooms and an excellent choice of food options downstairs. The staff were always very helpful and courteous. Definitely opt for the breakfast option as the breakfast terrace (and the accompanying... More

I am comparing this hotel with other 5 star hotels I have stayed in and in my opinion this hotel is not 5 star but very expensive. Well I visited Geneva with my family and stayed at this hotel. The only good thing I came across was reception desk. I booked room which supposed to have Queen size bed and... More

This was my second time staying in this Kempinski and it did not fail to impress. The hotel is extremely modern, has great service and has an amazing location. My favourite place to stay in Geneva! However I made a reservation over the phone for the 25th of June but the receptionist instead booked me for the 24th. When I... More

This is my third time staying at the Kempinski Geneva and my satisfaction with the hotel always depends on the date. They are really not consistent at all...Not even their rooms! This time the room was rather ok, some of the more functional details (like the bathroom sink and bath) are not up to standards, but no major complaint. The... More

Stayed there for a few days for my significant others birthday, the hotel was nice, really great location, right opposite the lake. The restaurants in the hotel were amazing, I really recommend the Italian.

A beautiful hotel facing Geneva lake. Perfect location, walking distance from high end shopping area and cafes. We tried their chinese restaurant, the food was good but overpriced-lovely setting though. Overall nice experience, but a little disappointed the room was a bit too basic, with no percolator or coffee machine, nor dental kit etc.

The hotel has a lot to offer to young people. It has a bar/ restaurant and a club inside. I have eaten at the restaurant once and the food was excellent. I have gone to the bar- floor two- twice and I didn't really like the service but good atmosphere. The Java club has a good vibe but the music... More

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights and wished it was longer! The location was perfect. The views were amazing of the Lake and the snow capped Alps, whilst it was brilliant sunshine! The staff were so helpful, polite and friendly. Nothing was too much. We got free vouchers to travel on the local transport, including the small boat... More
