I visited Victoria Hall in order to attend a concert with Beethoven's symphony no 9 and I liked the place very much. It's a neoclassical style built music hall and theater with excellent acoustics. If you have the chance to attend a concert there, do not hesitate to go!

My choir had a concert there and it was really good. The acoustic was pretty good compared to other halls we have being in, well the look from the inside is just breath taking you have to see it. I also liked how you get free wifi so that's a plus.

I am a big supporter of culture during travel and VICTORIA HALL is a beautiful and historical part of Geneva history. It was a gift from the British Consulate to the Swiss people in the time of Queen Vicoria and the grand empire period of British history when "the sun never set" on the Empire and Britannia ruled the world....

There are not many concert halls left in the world that are ornate but also have great acoustics. At Victoria Hall, each concert is an event - such a beautiful and intimate space. We performed Mahler Symphony No. 2 there and even though it is a huge work, somehow it fit into this compact space. The audience was terrific and... More

I have been here for concerts. It is a beautiful theater with a lot of ornamentation. The seats are not the usual upholstered theater seats. They are made of woven cane. What is nice is that they are quite wide for a theater. It makes a grand setting for any concert.

Although relatively small by European standards, the Victoria Hall, a few minutes stroll from the gorgeous Place Neuve, boasts excellent ecoustics and a setting evoking the brilliance of the belle époque. Rachmaninov's 1st piano concerto was a delight, followed by Berlioz's Symphony Fantastique. Interior is truly beautiful with its gilt ornamentation, frescoed ceilings, red velvet seats and plush royal box.... More

Victoria Hall is such an amazing Theatre Hall. Located in the downtown of Geneva , it give the feel of moving back 100 years. The site is good with exceptional architecture.

Rather large by Geneva standards, this concert hall has very nice acoustics with uncomfortable balcony seats and cheaply decorated interior.

If you have an opportunity to go to a concert in the Victoria Hall, it is definitely worth a go, the room si simply beautiful. Occasionally not only clasical music is performed there, I for example went to a concert of the Portuguese Fado singer Mariza there. Keep an eye on the programme for this kind of events.
