“Beautiful, grand a comfortable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2011

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.

The Hotel De La Paix is an excellent hotel, with great rooms (some looking out over Lake Geneva). It’s an expensive place to stay but well worth it. The food in the main restaurant is excellent too. The car parking (payable) is opposite the hotel in a secure underground lot.
I’d recommend you ask for a room facing the lake with a balcony. Nice to have breakfast on your own private balcony looking out over the lake. Heavenly!

Room Tip: Ask for a lake view with balcony

The hotel Is located close handsome of the high-end boutiques and also the old town of Lausanne. In addition, it also features a high-quality and fresh look, which is even more appreciated thanks to two things that I usually do not take for granted: a really nice and fresh breakfast buffet and secondly also a wonderful view over the Lac Leman.

I have often been disappointed by the infrastructure of Swiss hotels, which can sometimes be outdated. But not here: It gives a premium impression which was above and beyond what I expected - at an average / mid-range price tag!

The staff also did a good job, so there is really nothing to complain!

Only 10mins away from the train station, this hotel is well situated in the old town. So this is good if you're a walkabout kind of tourist. The room is quite large, and so is the bathroom, with thankfully a shower and not a bathtub which I dislike. However, this is 1 of those hotels that do not provide water nor toothbrushes so come prepared, unless you are ok to hunt for them outside. The tv channels are also all in french, and you need to prop 2 pillows to sleep properly. The breakfast is rather good though small in selection, and the dinner meu equally small in selection, somewhat passable in quality. There is free WIFI throughout the hotel which is good, though I made the mistake of hooking up the LAN line in the room and got charged

Room Tip: Ask for the room facing the lake!

We stayed here with a group of 20 cyclists on a Paris geneva cycling trip for our last night. I am not sure how thrilled I would have been at full rate but the rooms were well discounted and the hotel itself was really well presented with good facilities, excellent rooms and a well prepared breakfast.

Even though I live in Lausanne I had to stay one night at hotel de la Paix the night before my wedding. I booked a single room for one night at a rather expensive rate, but since it is a four star hotel I decided it was ok.

When I saw my room I thought I walked into a closet, the single rooms are SMALL, really SMALL with a tiny bed. For the price they charge I would have expected the rooms to be bigger.

The overall service was good, they have an underground parking and a bar that closes at one o'clock in the morning.
