We were visiting here for a conference. An excellent place to stay. Not a cheap place but very impressive. Our room was one of the best we have stayed in. This hotel is very much recommended as a place to stay.

Everything about Geneva reeks of comfort and wealth and this hotel fits right in. The rooms are clean and large enough with great blackout curtains. The halls are quiet. The beds and pillows are very comfy. The shower head is Hansgrohe like much of Europe and feels terrific when you just want to unwind. There is a very large pool,... More

First time at the Kempinski in Geneva. Great location on the lake front. The common areas such as the lobby as well as 2nd floor hotel restaurant and bar/coffee area are very nice.

I loved my previous stay at the hotel but was critical of the Paquis neighborhood that I walked through daily to get to the hotel. This time, I made sure to walk along the waterfront and avoid going down Rue de Montheux and the others off Rue Lausanne between Montheux and the park, and it was a much smoother trip.... More
