I stayed at the DesAlpes for two nights, and was satisfied. Although the hotel is listed as a three star hotel, it seemed quite a step down from the excellent three-star I visited in Paris; someone explained that this is because France has a maximum of four stars, while Switzerland has five. Hence a Swiss three-star hotel might be the equivalent only of a French two-star. Something to consider.
The room was large and old-fashioned, with high ceilings, and a balcony from which one could see Lake Geneva and the French shore opposed. The huge city parking-lot stretches out majestically from the hotel.
The restaurant was OK but a much better meal is to be had at the Mekong along the quai--the best Asian (esp. Vietnamese) food I have eaten in years. The hotel breakfast is not up to snuff. Sometimes there are no plates, bread lies about haphazardly, and the staff are curt. But it's free. I'd stay here again, though I'd just as soon not.
