Three of us, a couple and our sixteen year old son, stayed at the Hotel de la Paix in August, 2011. We really felt at home-in fact, we extended our stay from two nights to three.
We had booked a triple room, but when we arrived, the hotel had upgraded us to a suite. They also gave us free parking and free transit passes for the length of our stay.
And what a suite-lots of room, elegant and a great view of Lac Leman (Lake Geneva) and the Alps and Evian, France across the lake. Everything was spotlessly clean.
The location is very central, yet quiet. The Cathedral is a ten-minute walk away, there are plenty of restaurants and lots of shopping around, yet access to the Autobahn is only a ten- to fifteen-minute drive.
Service is excellent. The front staff attended quickly to our every request.
Breakfast was very good, and the wait staff was quick with coffee refills.
This hotel is grand, but a much better value than other "grand" hotels nearby that charge much higher prices. It also has a history, having hosted James Joyce and Scott Fitzgerald among other writers, singers, actors, politicians and more.
If you want a grand Lake Geneva experience, you can't do better than the Hotel de la Paix.
