I like this hotel and its location. However the location does not justify the price I paid. the staff at reception are first class and they make you feel very much at home. however the atmosphere in the bar is not warm and I seldom drink there.

We visited Geneva for the international motor show and after researching various hotels online, I came across the Kempinski.

We didn't have breakfast included within...

The hotel has a lovely bar, the Floor Two Bar. With a nice view of the lake you can sip a glass and have yourself a nice time with friends or in a couple. However, as everything in Geneva prepare the wallet as a drink here will set you back about 25€ (a simple one, not fancy!)

Actually this hotel is close to perfect: Very good restaurants, diligent personal, large rooms and anything else you may require. However, the rooms on the eight floor are far from modern. Even though they are equipped with a perfectly useless iPad, this can't hide the fact that they are OLD, covered with dusty, ugly mildew in the bathroom and burned...

Whilst the reception area and shops lack some atmosphere and the bathrooms could do with some updating etc the hotel facilities are excellent. Great lounge, excellent buffet breakfast and outstanding indoor heated pool and awesome gym. I must say the staff are extremelt helpful too. The concierge was great. They all clearly want you to have a great experience.

Very nice hotel. I did not stay at the hotel but did have happy hour at the bar overlooking the lake. The staff were very friendly and the beer and appetizers were very good. I will stay at this hotel the next time in Geneva.
