I had 2 nights in Geneva for a conference, and the hotel is very good for a big hotel, but expensive, although Geneva is generally very expensive, so probably not exceptional for the city. The hotel is right on the shore of lake Geneva, so well placed, the breakfast was very good, and the service to match, but very busy...

I have stayed here a number of times. The rooms are nice and very comfortable with fluffy gowns. Expensive, but that's Geneva. Breakfast costs 50 CHF. Nice location on Lac Leman. Good area and a few minutes walk from shopping district.

We booked this hotel as a last minute decision to go to the Geneva Motor Show. Most of the other hotels were booked up so I booked 2 lake view deluxe rooms for the 4 of us. Over £2000! but we thought the view would compensate the cost. Just a normal size room and bathroom which was clean but very...

The hotel is very big, so be prepared to walk to your room from the elevator (there are bigger hotels of course, and walking is good, but it wastes so much time). Despite the size of the building, the rooms are average in size, and the bathroom is small. What is also small is the bed - it's 1.5 wide...

The hotel was beyond all my expectations, the cocktails at the Floor2 bar were excellent, the food at Le Grill was just what you need in the evening, great grill and perfect stakes, the room was cosy and well equipped, and the sea was so relaxing, very simple, but I stuck there for couple of hours reading and relaxing.

Fantastic location in the heart of the city, directly viewing the lake fountain, imagine if you Habib your breakfast in the terrace of the main restaurant facing the fountain, it's a great experience.
