Enjoyed my three days stay at this traditional Swiss hotel. Staff were friendly, breakfast was excellent and Internet worked fast. Three servers in restaurant, one each from Panama, Czeck Republic and Turkey, were very friendly and efficient. Housekeeping may need attention to small details. I discarded one pair of socks in rubbish bin because I didn't want them. The next...

The Hotel is very old style stylish and yet very comfortable. A large choice for breakfast in an elegant dining room overlooking the lake. Our room was comfortable and quiet with a very modern bathroom. Situated on the lake it is a few metro stops or taxi ride into town. The receptionist was very helpful and there are a choice...

I could give enough praise to the staff of this hotel, who keep it immaculately clean, running it effeciently and providing the highest level of service imaginable, starting from check-in. The property itself is at the best location of the city, in the secluded area from public promenade with its own park, but just 50 meters from Leman lake, with...

My son is 8 years old and he loves the Beau Rivage. He's been a guest several times as a baby, toddler and young boy. I'm positive he'll keep enjoying this hotel as a teenager, young man and father with his children and grandfather with his grandchildren. Winter, spring, summer or fall this is the best place to stay in...

My Home in Lausanne I’ve been often in Lausanne for the last 3 years (for business and to visit my son who is a student at the local university). Obviously, the location and the view are unique in Lausanne. But what makes me coming back is the amazing view, the choice of restaurants (all are pretty good!) and the staff....

The Best Rivage Palace is one of the most beautiful hotels in Europe. It combines old style elegance with swiss comfort. Especially the rooms with lake view are spectacular. Several restaurants of different quality and price level offer food for every taste and budget. Fitness room ok but with limited equipment. Only opens at 6:30.

This amazing hotel/ resort is located on the shore of Lake Geneva in Lausanne. It is incredibly luxurious, one of the finest hotels in which I have ever stayed in the world. It has fantastic restaurants and an exquisite 16,000 sq ft spa; also an outdoor pool on gorgeous grounds. A significant feature that really makes this hotel impressive is...

An historic hotel that lives up to its palace name. Beautiful and traditionally grandeur but rooms are fitted with all the updated amenities including a TV in the bathroom mirror. The bed and bedding was extremely comfy; felt like I was enveloped in a soft but supportive cloud. While our room was one of the smaller ones, the bathroom size...

This grand hotel exudes old world charm but with modern amenities and decor. The room we stayed in was a bit on the small side but was luxurious and comfortable. The bed, duvet and pillows were so comfy that I didn't want to get out of bed. The bathroom had a built-in TV in the mirror over the double sinks,...

Beautiful, historical hotel with fully upgraded and modern facilities in the rooms. There is an atmosphere of quiet luxury here, with tapestries, chandeliers, wood panelled lift and views of the lake. What really impresses is the high level of service provided by the staff. Unfailingly polite, friendly and courteous, the staff make the stay here even more pleasant.
