“Perfect, Just Perfect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2011

This was my third stay at Hotel Beau-Rivage. It is full of old word charm and elagence. The welcome is genuinely friendly, the staff helpful, and the view from my third floor balcony overlooking the lake was just fantastic. Of course it comes at a price, but it was certainly worth it. I will be back for sure.

The stunning architecture and lakeside location of the Beau Rivage warrant a visit alone. Though the communal areas are not large, the beautiful atrium and secluded bar are relaxing meeting spots. Rooms are spacious and well-appointed with fine fabrics, comfortable chairs, quality mattreses and large luxury bathrooms. Reception staff are professional and correct. Some attention is required, however, in the restaurant. The chef's mastery is evident in every course once it finds its way to diners, for the restaurant waiting staff does not do justice to this otherwise excellent hotel. Consistantly, particularly at lunch, orders are forgotten entirely or mis-served and a level of controlled chaos amongst the serving staff permeates the dining experience.

We always stay at the Beau Rivage when we are in Geneva, which is several times a year. We rate the hotel very highly for its prime location, the quiet courtesy of the staff who make us feel if we were staying in our own home and remember our personal preferences, and the extra effort made to create a friendly environment for our four year old daughter. We feel that there is no match in Geneva for the overall experience in terms of service and ambience.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2011

We stayed five nights at a special corporate rate. The first night they put is in a small room overlooking an inner 'courtyard' which is an alley with construction and renovation going on. Because this was sort of claustrophobic, the wifi signal was poor, and because we were staying five nights, I asked for them to change us (tipping well). We were moved to a slightly larger room, part of a suite overlooking the lake, with a deck overlooking the city, not the lake, for the same rate which had a light stench to it. We kept it hoping the smell would go away, and by our last night it did. I was disappointed that this Beau Rivage is NOT related to the Beau Rivage in Lauzanne which is exquisite. The staff, however was helpful and friendly. Breakfast was great and had a beautiful view over the lake -- on a nice day we could eat our breakfast outside. It is a historic hotel, Geneva's first, but in need of upgrading.

Room Tip: Rm 602 with the deck over the city.

I stayed at the hotel for 10 days as part of my business trip from end of April 2010. It was a lovely hotel with class stamped all over it. They have made it a point to attend to even the finer details. The chandelier and the carpet complemented perfectly with the modern amenities in the room. Rooms were really very spacious with high-speed internet connectivity included. Beds were really very comfy and very bi.Wish I had been there for honeymoon. The rooms are perfect for couples specifically on honeymoon. Staff was really very courteous. The smallest of the amenities were present in the room. Everything was fine, however, my only complain is that inspite of the hefty room charge, food was not included. Also, seemed to be a problem with sound proofing with sounds of water flushing been constantly heard. Had a really nice stay!!! Thanks for the excellent service!!!
