I was really looking forward to staying in this hotel, I booked it on booking/com but about 10 days after my booking the hotel has contacted me to tell me that they have accidentally put the wrong price (141 CHF per night) and that it is actually 860 CHF per night. Since it was a non-refundable booking I was very... More

Dear guest, We understand your feelings and we sincerely apologize for the misunderstanding. It was a mistake of a reservation system which is a 3rd party provider. They communicated the wrong information to booking.com and hence the problem with the wrong data on the website. We apologize for the inconvenience which has also affected our hotel.

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.

The overall elegant atmosphere. The staff in this hotel is highly professional and discreet as one would expect from such a hotel. This hotel is full of tradition as 150 years old and the lobby reflects exactly that with a stunning elegant historical atmosphere. The rooms leave nothing to desire.

Fantastic and quaint hotel perfectly situated next to the lake couldn't ask for any more. Only downside is the price however this is Geneva and motor show weekend - valet service was superb the hotel is also just around the corner from a few English pubs which was really handy

The Staff are so helpful and friendly in every way!!! I had two days off work for leisure, the concierge service was excellent. sadly, the breakfast was possible the WORST I have ever experienced in a Five star hotel. Rather get a bed rate and go to a lovely coffee shop for breakfast.
