What a spectacular hotel - the rooms have every imaginable luxury - the beds and their comforters are super comfortable- the rooms are always being restocked with fresh flower arrangements. Kind and attentive staff, great spa, modern fully equipped exercise room, wonderful breakfast buffet. Sushi restaurant on property was our favorite.

Hotel's Favorite
The Beau Rivage Hotel is my absolute favorite hotel in Geneva and this trip elevated it to one of my favorite hotels - period. The staff is welcoming, friendly and goes out of its way to help and make the experience all the more memorable. The rooms are clean, well equipped with all necessary amenities, and tastefully decorated. It’s hard to beat the views of the lake, especially in the morning as the sun radiates into the room while enjoying coffee with the window open. The overall charm of the hotel also comes from the beautiful decorations that adorn the open and sunlit hallways. A beautiful spring day allows you to enjoy the quaint terrace for a great brunch and crossing the street opens you to options for a great run or stroll along the lake. Only a few minutes walk from downtown, it remains close to some great restaurant options and is less than a ten minute walk to the train station. A bientot!

We had a fantastic stay at the Beau-Rivage. Besides the stunning property, the staff made every minute of our stay fabulous. As the weather allowed, we were able to enjoy our dinner on the terrace (which was delicious by the way!). We will definitely have to try the Michelin star restaurant on our next trip. We can't wait to come back.

A faultless stay at the Beau-Rivage, a beautifully appointed property on the lakeside in Geneva. The room was immaculate, quiet & well-serviced. Staff were exemplary - welcoming, professional & striking exactly the right balance. I really can't find anything to fault or improve - & that's quite rare.

Wonderful, just wonderful. Our suite was large, well-designed, and had a balcony over-looking the Jet d'eau and the lake. It's hard to put into words how magical this hotel is. Historical French-Swiss design, super-friendly staff, and gorgeous views. We will never forget our few days here. The welcome fruit and chocolates were a great touch after a long trip to get there. The bathroom was huge, and had a huge bathtub and great shower. We can't wait to get back.

From the grand welcome in front to many thoughtful touches and assistance navigating Geneva throughout our stay, everything was superb. Our nine-year-old son said "now he knows what it is like to live like a king!" Opulent and elegant, yet warm and comfortable. We will be back! Bob M.

My stay as a solo traveler was short but very memorable. The Beau-Rivage perfectly mixes the charm of bygone times with modern services. My room was fantastic, staff payed attention to detail and breakfast was fabulous. I had high expectations which very easily exceeded!
