The hotel is beautifully located overlooking Lake Geneva. The service is very professional and up to the highest standards. The staff are well trained and very pleasant. The rooms are of good size and elegant. Very clean. All amnesties are available. However, the hotel is old and I mean really old. It is one of the oldest hotels in Europe... More

We arrived to a very warm welcome. Room was excellent, well appointed with a view across the lake to the 'jet d'eau'. Exactly what we had ordered from our tour operator Kirker. It was my birthday treat and the staff made a fuss - thank you. Some plus points - BBC 1 and 2 on the TV, and lovely Clarins... More

We recently enjoyed a short stay on this property in Geneva. The hotel interior is charming and well-appointed. We were traveling with teenage daughters and booked a "family room," which is two adjoining rooms. The rooms were very nice and the property has wonderful views of the lake. The entire staff is top-notch - everyone we encountered from the front... More

Best hotel. The rooms are gorgeous. The service is extraordinary!! The buffet breakfast was delicious. Their cappuccino is wonderful. Concierge extremely helpful. The prices are high but all of Geneva is expensive. Again, I can't say enough about the service. They ran to our taxi with umbrellas so we wouldn't get wet.
