The overriding memory of this hotel is the excellence of its staff - efficient, accommodating and very helpful. Situated on the Lake shore, the entrance to the Hotel is at the side. Although I was disappointed not to get a view of the Lake, the room was excellent - extremely spacious, beautifully clean, large balcony (although not charming or romantic,... More

I stayed here for work and whilst the hotel is nice I do not believe it is worth the price tag. The room was on the small side and a bit dated. Bed, however, is comfy. Bathroom is also a bit dated. hair drier is very low quality and old for such an expensive hotel. Gym is ridiculously small. Service,... More

I was in Geneva for work, so didn't spend a ton of time at the hotel, but when I was there the staff were extraordinarily professional and friendly. Really really great. My room was small-ish but not terrible for Europe, and the housekeeping was great. My complaints/comments are only minor. The gym is very small (two treadmills, one elliptical, one... More

The hotel was very comfortable and very clean but it was quiet expensive and lacked little things like the ability to make tea in the room. You can make Nespresso but each pod is 5 francs so it's a little deceptive. The hotel is in a good location but if I was a first time tourist to Geneva I would... More
