    1. No business center 2- fitness room was extremely small 3- old and not well up-keeping. Need to be renovated. 4- bad decor in the atrium

    1- Chat-Botte restaurant on the ground floor was excellent. 2- Near the Ritz, which offers nice Philippe Pascoet chocolatier and great restaurant 3- the Building has history (didn’t present it, sadly)

    The city room we booked wasn't ready when we arrived and therefore we got an upgrade to a most magnificent room with lake front views and a wonderful terrace to enjoy it from (room 118). Two bathrooms, spa bath and haman shower, everything and more could hope for. Bed was huge and wonderfully comfortable. Staff were charming and attentive and very helpful with my business needs. Just should have stayed there longer to enjoy it all.

    The hotel is ok, but do not be missleaded if you are inspired be Beou Rivage Lausanne... hotels are incomparable, the one in Lausanne is much better . Good in Buffet on breakfast looked like it was looked two three hours before, but probably because not many people stayed this day .

    Location is nice. View on the lake. Restaurant .

    Our only comment was that they changed sheets and towels every day although we had not requested it.

    The staff were unbeatable. They even gave us a free upgrade for the whole stay to avoid our being disturbed by an event two floor below our room on one of the nights. The location is ideal and the fittings etc. top quality.

    The gym was too small, and the breakfast could be improved, as it costs 47 francs per person but choices were quite limited.

    It was Christmas Day and the hotel was decorated so nicely. The rooms were huge and we even received a Christmas present from the hotel. It was at a convenient location, you could get to most of the places on foot.

    The bistro restaurant is a let-down. But there is plenty of choice along the road. Of course the Michelin star restaurant in the hotel is very good indeed.

    Outstanding Classic Geneva hotel still under its original ownership through generations of the same family that built it in 1865. Classical and everything you'd expect of a top Geneva hotel

    Lack of flexibility when announced I had to leave a day earlier. Hotel & Booking.com blamed the other party for not wanting to reimburse me. No efforts made by management to make it up somehow. I would have settled for less than the full reimbursement if they had tried.

    Prestige hotel with an ideal location. Staff - for most part - was very gracious. Dinner at the Chat botté was a great experience.

    Breakfast variety was poor and not great value for money. Whilst the staff were always pleasant, they were pushed for time as there were too few of them and that meant a long time for coffee etc.

    The hotel is a stunning, impeccably maintained, historical beauty and the staff are utterly exceptional, from the front desk manager, concierge, and maintenance staff (who immediately took care of a small issue) to the bartender and waitstaff. We were treated like royalty, despite our clearly being just your average American Joe... and Josephine. White glove treatment all the way. The room was incredible. We had a "city view" (you could see the lake and cute old church if you opened the French doors and poked your head out), however, the room itself was so stunning you didn't miss the view. It was sumptuous and relaxing. The location was also wonderful, right on the lake, and we were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go.

    Lack of facilities ( like hair dresser , restaurant varieties ) . The entrance of the hotel and the hall are very small .

    The location is perfect . On the lake and close to the shops , restaurants and train station . Beautiful decoration ( old style ) Comfortable bed and clean room. Helpful and kind staff

    Hotel was not equipped with boiling kettle nor ion board however when we asked for them the hotel provided them

    Hotel has a classic atmosphere very well located on the lake of Geneva. Staff are very friendly and kind

    Value for money, a little bit too pricey but so are the Genève hotel prices. Lake view on the deluxe room is more like a "side" lake view.

    Location, comfort, style, service, restaurant.

    The hotel interior requires modernisation. I believe the work has already started on the top floor!

    Great location. Very good Thai restaurant.
