When a man travels a lot, staying in different hotels. Sometimes it is a luxury, sometimes the location is crucial, sometimes the price, and sometimes parking, wi fi, etc. Imperial Palace is an all in one!

Outstanding staff from every corner of the hotel. Exceptional, friendly and helpful attitude rarely found in large establishments. A real credit to the hotel. Rooms are tidy and well equiped, as anticipated, but nothing of note. Splendid bar and open air terrace overlooking lake Annecy. Excellent location, just a ten minute walk from the centre of the old town. Ample...

Dear Guest, Many many thanks for your great comments. The reason why we ask you an extra 20€ per room and per stay for the use of the swimming pool, sauna, hammam and experience shower is to make sure you pay for what you use (lots of guest never use swimming pool area) and to ensure the swimming pool is...

We arrived in France for a 20 day road trip around France. Annecy was our first stop...an easy drive from Lyon airport. We arrived at the imperial palace around noon and we were checked into our lovely room that overlooked the lake immediately. The room was a good size and very comfortable. The view from the 7 th floor was...

We stayed here for 4 nights and from the moment we checked in to checking out the service was impeccable. The staff are friendly and help with any questions you may have.

If you prefer a Quality stay in Annecy and if You are willing to spend more money than usual stay in the Imperial. Gamblers will love the location behause of the inhouse Casino. From spring to fall you should sit outside in the Imperial park and have a marvellous look over the lake towards the Alps.

The hotel is located just next to lake Annecy which is ideal if you want to enjoy walking around the lake and some outdoor water activities. There is also a close by grass field next to the lake which is very good for picnics.The service and the hotel restaurant was not bad.

We didn't stay here but had Cafe Garamond (like afternoon tea) on the terrace, on a beautiful day, with a beautiful view of the lake and the mountains, it was just fabulous. The building and grounds are gorgeous.

We had a room with a view over the lake and mountains, stunning. The rooms are small but comfortable. Front desk staff extremely friendly and helpful. Hotel set back from the main road so it is really quiet at night. One could sleep with the window open. Buffet style breakfast as good as one would expect. La Voila restaurant rates...

In terms of view, breakfast and location , this property will reach the top ranking in Annecy hotels list . it's one of my best experiences in European hotels, yet it's a bit far from old town ( 7 - 10 min walking) and a bit more expensive but it will be my only choice if I intend to visit...

This hotel is just wonderful, we paid extra for a lake side view but it is worth every penny. The room is lovely, the bed large and very comfortable, immaculate hotel. Will definitely stay again when visiting Annecy.
