“great experience”
Reviewed 10 October 2011

I wasn't able to choose the hotel by myself. However I couldn't be dissappointed with Le Richemond. Not just the 5 star hotel - the service was not just 5 start, but also very laid back, in good way. they made my stay 6 stars. If you can have a room with a small balcony, the view to lake geneva won't dissappoint. I didn't have time to check the breakfast nor spa, which is my loss... The Conciege desk won't let you down though!

As a concierge myself, I've experienced many hotels - Le Richemond is good!

The hotel was chosen by my travel agent for my May trip and I requested to return to the hotel for my second visit, which occurred in September. The hotel staff are the friendliest, most helpful group of people that I have ever encountered. They actually escorted my family to the boat dock when we our jet lagged minds couldn't seem to understand the directions. They recommended a phone service for my college aged daughter and set up the card service for her. On my first visit, I was traveling from Russian, and forgot to exchange money at the airport. I took a taxi from the airport. When I arrived at the hotel, I tried to pay the taxi with a card, and the driver became hostile. The hotel staff quickly jumped in and before I could bat an eye, they were escorting me into their lobby and had taken care of the bill for me. The lobby is lovely and I don't find it over glam at all. It is stylish but not ridiculous, and the rooms are quite crisp in design. It had everything I look for in a boutique hotel: Fantastic location, fantastic staff, and excellent design. The prices are good! We spent the opportunity to have lunch and tea at various hotels to see I liked something better, but the Le Richemond always felt like home. I didn't use the spa or gym, so I cannot comment about those facilities. I will be returning in March, and plan on going back to the Le Richmond.

Room Tip: My rooms all overlooked the water.

Stayed with my wife only at Le Richemond after a great week with kids at Disney land - Paris

Everyone at the hotel call us by our names , staff was excellent they serve you with a big smile and the room was super quiet, the bed was comfortable and window shutter was just perfect

Dining at the hotel was great experience especially the sea food was exceptional and very tasty.

Spa and Hammam was just great and relaxing and you can book it along with the room.

Location of the hotel was just perfect since everything was with a walking distance and we did not moved our car during our stay.

I do recommend this hotel for couples as will families.

After the recent revamping, the hotel is now a bit "bling bling" for me. at least in the lobby. loud music in the evening, and show off people.
However the rooms are nicely furnished. Chose it for its LHW affiliation, but not really my style. Friendly staff. In the breakfast rooms, although there are several waiters, there doesn't seem to be any organisation (several people are supposedly looking after you but an empty plate will remain on your table for a while). breakfast is better in other hotels of this category. disappointing for the price.

We stayed here at the end of August on the last night of our trip to Geneva. The staff were all very friendly, helpful and professional. We had booked a standard room with breakfast and although we did not have a lake view the room was lovely and the bed very comfortable. The bathroom was traditional and fitted out in marble and of good quality e.g heated mirrors to stop steam build up.

We visited the spa - it was lovely and we enjoyed the peaceful and relaxing setting. I would have had some treatments but the prices unfortunately put me off. I must give special mention to the invigorating tea in the flasks at the spa. It was absolutely delicious and I would have loved the recipe.

Breakfast was very good with a good selection and it was lovely to sit out on the terrace and enjoy the view of the lake in the sunshine. Breakfast service was also very friendly and professional.

Overall a good hotel choice for a quality hotel and in an excellent location.
