The Kempinski hotel in Geneva is very luxurious a foyer with a long modern fire makes you want to sit there all day with tea on a chilly day. The staff are very efficient and helpful. We had a superior room on floor 5 overlooking the lake, a wow factor as we had an ever changing tableau before us, beautiful,...

From the welcome and personal service we got here on check-in, thank you Valerie!, to the quality of the room, the view, the central location, the lakeside location, I couldn't really fault this place. I'm not likely to be back in Geneva any time soon, but would have no hesitation in recommending this place.

The hotel is very well located, all major attractions are within walking distance. Very nice view of the fountain from the restaurant. It has a great decor. The beds were comfortable. Morning breakfast buffet was very decent. Food and drinks are quite expensive, understandable considering it's switzerland! However, there were no toys for our daughter ( kids are provided welcome...

This hotel was just perfect. I know you have the Four Seasons and the Pr Wilson, but they are classy and with a cigary smell (what you would expect in good old Geneva). The Kempinski offers the opposite: trendy, stylish, modern big rooms. Have breakfast on the terrace while watching the lake Geneva fountain going. Go to the Java Club...

Booked rom 4 months in advanced for 6 rooms. They gave us the worst rooms. No heater. Cracks in the sink in the bathroom. Mold all over the bath tub. Hair dryer from the 1970s in a Holiday Inn. Called several times to ask for a heater. They brought one all dusty and it was not working at all. After...

Excellent quality accommodation. Sheets must be 1200 count...very comfortable. Breakfast a little stuffy, but excellent choices. Views magnificent. Best delight was coffee shop/bar/reception/ area on 2nd floor (1eme etage) with decadent sweets and a view of the jet d'eau. Of many choices of accommodation along the north bank of lac Leman, this hotel has maintained its high standards and maybe...

Travelled in February 2011 - despite this review having a different date. This is one of the best city hotels I have ever stayed in. From the moment you arrive, you can see the quality in both the decor and well trained hotel staff. We were quickly checked in and upon entering our room we were left stunned. The sheer...

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. Upon getting off from the elevator on the 7th floor, I was unnerved to see a dozen men in front of a hotel door. I was told the next day that they were bodyguards for someone. That day another set of men were guarding another door. My oh my....

We stayed here as part of a tour group and couldn't fault the hotel or the food, both were what one would expect from a five star premise in Geneva. Our disappointment came when we went to transfer to a different hotel that we had pre-paid and which unknown to us at the time of booking was 70kms away back...

It is a good hotel with all the services that a five star offers. The staff are helpful, the Chinese restaurant in the hotel is MAGNIFICENT, and it's perfectly placed in front lake geneva. From the hotel, almost everything is within walking distance. Great for businessmen and families with children in late teens. I personally like the Four Seasons hotel...
