One of Geneva's most upscale hotels, so everything is obviuosly close to perfect. But I simply can't understand how a hotel of this level can operate without a wellness area. It's 2017. And all the competition has it. Apparently, they're so classy neither they nor the guests care.

I like the hotel. It reminds Regent in Berlin. Stylish, classic, nice. Personnel particular polite and trying to assist them best. Late breakfast in the bar, early morning coffee to the room, both free - big pluses.

We stayed there last week for 5 days and really it exceeded our expectations. Perfectly located in the center, yet face to the lake of Geneva, offering fantastic views to the Cathedral, the Mont Blanc and of course the lake. The inside of the hotel is like a palace with excellent decorations and antiques. The staff from the room service...

We were in Geneva for a brief visit, and stayed at the Beau Rivage. A lovely hotel on the shore of the lake, this is an exceptional place to stay.

The Beau Rivage is a beautifully-maintained historical property owned by the same family for more than a century. This is a real gem of a hotel that is conveniently and scenically located by the lake (10min walk from Geneva station and to the main city). I especially appreciated the historically sympathetic interior design, with antique-style furniture with centuries-old books casually...

I stayed here for business. The family-owned hotel is situated in a lovely location by the lake and has historical and cultural significance. The common areas are nice and very classic/ornate if a little tight. However the rooms are in need of significant improvement. Although decorated in a very traditional style, they seem dark and in a need of a...
