Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This hotel is located just off the large park and lakeside promenade - a reasonably quiet location - garage parking available - the hotel seems to be run super-efficiently by a team of very professional young women who offer an extremely good service - the restaurant is first class both for dinner and breakfast - our room had a small balcony with (supposedly) a view of the lake, this proved to be a little far fetched as the view of the lake was the size of a postage stamp through the trees in the park - no real problem, we just found it a little amusing !
The accommodation is very good as is everything with this hotel, and we highly recommend the Catalpa !

It was easy to find the hotel and it is in a good position with a 20 minute stroll into the centre of Annecy on the flat. There is also a bus stop outside the hotel and when we were there the buses were free. The hotel appears quite modern, our room was clean, tidy and had a comfortable bed. It also had a good shower. The aircon was effective especially important in the current heat wave! Breakfast was good and the receptionist helpful in recommending a nearby restaurant open on a Sunday. My only problem was the parking, the hotel had very little parking itself and none of the car parks were free. We visited at a busy holiday time so finding a parking space was challenging. Fortunately when parked I could use the the PayByPhone app to pay for the parking.

Lovely calm oasis with plenty of shade. Brilliant service, attentive waiting staff and lovely food. We had the vegetarian roast vegetables, very tasty with a cool glass of rose wine. Water brought to table without having to ask. Worth a visit.

A lovely hotel. Our deluxe room was spacious. Very comfortable bed. Friendly and helpful staff. Excellent breakfast. Very convenient location. Short walking distance along lake front into busy Annecy centre ville. But also close to Plage d’Albigny and small suburb of Albigny with shops, bars, and restaurants. Recommend e-bike hire from Outside Bike, based at Rivage Hotel, a short walk east along Lake front from Hotel Catalpa.

Stayed two nights here while visiting Annecy. Hotel is about a 15 minute flat walk from the Old Town and the throng of visitors. Walk is along the lake and very enjoyable. Clean, comfortable room with lovely decor, excellent shower. Breakfast was very good and worth the price. Staff helpful with directions and suggestions.

The staff was really friendly and ready to help in any way possible.
After seeing the beautifull city we decided to extend our stay. Even though our current room was already booked, the staff quickly managed to secure a different room where we could immediately check in the next morning, saving us time and hassle.
The room that i stayed in seemed in perfect conditions and wel maitained.
Well situated within walking distance to both the historical center and the lake.

We planned a road trip across Europe and booked almost two months in advance, explaining that we were travelling as a family of 4 and a dog. Initial communication was good and we felt confident of a positive stay. After a very long drive (our fault) we arrived at the hotel to be told there was no parking available and we should have booked, but at no point were we told that or asked if we needed parking.

The rooms were clean, but the service from Reception was not that helpful from start to finish. Breakfast was ok, but not sure it was worth the money. We did not eat lunch or dinner in the hotel for that reason.

Annecy is beautiful but parking is limited and even more so with a top-box as most car parks had height restrictions.

It was an ok hotel, but like most hotels in Annecy overpriced for what it is

Very nice hotel! The staff is friendly, the restaurant and breakfast are nice and the portions well served, the rooms are comfortable and clean, and all for a very affordable price. The hotel is not close to the city centre, but on the other hand, it is very close to the lake, so it's a matter of give and take. It might be great for summer holidays. We are very happy with the hotel!

I highly recommend Le Faisan Dore. I stayed there for 10 days in April 2006, and everything was perfect. Great location on the lake and at walking distance from the town center, that is just at a short walk's distance through the park along the lake. There is also a bus stop across from the hotel. Wonderful breakfast, very friendly and efficient service. Nice decor. No unwelcome noise. Extremely clean and well kept. Not pretentious, but good quality at all levels. Reasonable cost, approx 70 Euros + breakfast.
I was booked for 4 days, but extended to 10 as it was so pleasant..
