We stayed there last week for 5 days and really it exceeded our expectations. Perfectly located in the center, yet face to the lake of Geneva, offering fantastic views to the Cathedral, the Mont Blanc and of course the lake. The inside of the hotel is like a palace with excellent decorations and antiques. The staff from the room service...

The location is wonderful, within easy walking distance of Les Mouettes, as well as the old city. I could go on about the quality of the food in the bar,...

The Beau Rivage is a beautifully-maintained historical property owned by the same family for more than a century. This is a real gem of a hotel that is conveniently and scenically located by the lake (10min walk from Geneva station and to the main city). I especially appreciated the historically sympathetic interior design, with antique-style furniture with centuries-old books casually...

I stayed here for business. The family-owned hotel is situated in a lovely location by the lake and has historical and cultural significance. The common areas are nice and very classic/ornate if a little tight. However the rooms are in need of significant improvement. Although decorated in a very traditional style, they seem dark and in a need of a...
