Beautiful hotel, located right across the street from the lake. The hotel is so beautiful and the staff very attentive. The restaurants ok, expensive. Breakfast is included and is good, but not exceptional. Our room was large, and very comfortable one of the best 5 star hotels that we stayed in. We were only there for two nights. We were...

We recently enjoyed a short stay on this property in Geneva. The hotel interior is charming and well-appointed. We were traveling with teenage daughters and booked a "family room," which is two adjoining rooms. The rooms were very nice and the property has wonderful views of the lake. The entire staff is top-notch - everyone we encountered from the front...

I was really looking forward to staying in this hotel, I booked it on booking/com but about 10 days after my booking the hotel has contacted me to tell me that they have accidentally put the wrong price (141 CHF per night) and that it is actually 860 CHF per night.

Dear guest, We understand your feelings and we sincerely apologize for the misunderstanding. It was a mistake of a reservation system which is a 3rd party provider.

Best hotel. The rooms are gorgeous. The service is extraordinary!! The buffet breakfast was delicious. Their cappuccino is wonderful. Concierge extremely helpful. The prices are high but all of Geneva is expensive. Again, I can't say enough about the service. They ran to our taxi with umbrellas so we wouldn't get wet.
