“Perfect”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

We came over to Geneva for a long weekend. We had a wonderful stay at le Richemond. The service, courtesy and professionalism of the staff were perfect. Le Richemond is the Patek Philippe of swiss hotel tradition if I may paraphrase. The rooms are well appointed and quite comfortable. I would prefer a more cushy mattress and softer towels in the bathroom if I want to be picky. I also would add cotton swabs in the toiletry kits provided in the bathroom and a bar of soap in the shower (two were provided for sink and bath tub). We had dinner at le Jardin. Again, perfect service and the food was generally speaking good. Nothing to rave, the venison I had was a little chewy and stringy (not he best cut). On a less positive note, no brunch served on Sunday at the restaurant. I believe that it should be served in any hotel on Sundays. It is a choice and they prefer to have a regular lunch served at their restaurant. They could have both as some restaurants do; a brunch menu and lunch menu can coexist on Sunday. We went to have brunch next door at the Kempinsy following the recommendation of the concierge; a nice brunch's spot in Geneva indeed. Overall I recommend le Richemond and certainly will come back for another stay in Geneva.

I recently got married at Le Richemond and was blown away by the 5* quality in every aspect. From email correspondence to celebratory gifts in our honeymoon suite the hotel went the extra mile in every aspect.
5* service, 5* location = pure quality

Mu husband and I spent three nights at LeRichemond where we were attending a wedding reception. The room was spacious and comfortable with decent wifi connectivity. The breakfasts were "nothing special" except that there were fresh berries every morning--blue, black, straw and raspberries--which made it worth getting out of bed. It was a bit expensive for our normal travel budget, but we agreed that it was worth the splurge!

Dear Guests,

Your review is fantastic as you just mentioned and appreciated what's new at Le Richemond these last weeks.

A delicious and abundant buffet breakfast with a selection of homemade Swiss specialities, seasonal fruit and bread by a master baker. And the WIFI connection which has been updated.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts regarding your memorable stay in September.

I look forward to the pleasure of your return visit.

Yours sincerely,

I stayed here for three days on a business trip. I haven't stayed in Geneva before so cannot compare it to other hotels in the city, but it is a really nice hotel, located just off the lake in a beautiful setting.

The rooms are modern, which I wasn't expecting, but they were very nice. The marble bathrooms are particularly luxurious.

The restaurant Le Jardin servers wonderful food. The bar is very nice but probably not to my taste. The staff were always friendly and very helpful.

Overall a really nice business trip.

Not that there is anything wrong with the hotel (apart from the fact that they never came to do the turn down - not even after we called and asked for some water to be sent up too), but comparing to other 5-star hotel in geneva, hotel le richemond does not stand out. The room was very modern and has great view of the lake. However the hotel just feels "cold" and "not personal." I would choose the four seasons if I return to geneva for its much more superior service and personal touch.

Breakfast at Le Richemond on the other hand was excellent.

Stayed here for 4 nights for business. Standard room is great. Staff is extremly friendly and makes you really feel like a highly valued customer.
Food is excellent. Fitness center small but has everything you need for a daily work out. One of the best hotels I ever stayed at.
