“Enjoyed our Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2014

The hotel has a limited view of the lake, but the location was still very good. The hotel does not have parking on-site but there is parking available only a short walk away. It is steps away from the historic location, shopping and restaurants.

The hotel is tastefully decorated with a large selection of toiletries items. The staff is very nice and offered an excellent restaurant recommendation. Everyone speaks English.

We would highly recommend this hotel and the price was right, too.

We stayed at Hotel Splendid for 5 days, the staff were polite, helpful and friendly. They provided a secure place to lock up bikes in the basement. The hotel is right in the middle of the town, perfect for seeing the old town and the lake. The interior is well finished and clean, although not being a 5 start hotel the rooms are small and there is no hotel swimming pool. That said you don't need a pool with lake Annecy right outside the door!!

We will be staying there again.

This hotel is perfectly situated to be able to explore Annecy easily. Everything is accessible by foot from here - the lake, the restaurants, the old city, shops etc. The room was clean and had everything you require. We did not try the restaurant as we ate with friends who had rented an apartment nearby. The reception staff were really helpful in giving advice and had gone out of their way to email me before I arrived how to get from Geneva, as the bus timetable online was in French (which I do not speak well enough to understand). It is a short walk from the station if like us, you take the bus from Geneva. I would definitely book again and recommend to anyone visiting this beautiful town.

Room Tip: we asked for a view from the front of the hotel looking over the canal/lake, which even though was l...

We stayed three nights and found this hotel to be perfect for our requirements. The location is the number one reason to stay at hotel splendid, it was my fifth trip to annecy but first time at hotel splendid. The rooms are very adequate and the Bfast is a pleasant experience. Reception are very helpful and gave us some spot on restaurant recommendations. The lift was out of action during our stay but given we're about to start a walking holiday the extra exercise was actually a bonus.

We stayed four nights in order to see this lovely town and explore the area. The hotel benefits from a superb position overlooking the central park and lake and backing on to the old town. Obviously the hotel not having parking was a concern but they are close to the Hôtel de Ville and the Bonlieu car parks which, despite a very busy summer period, did have space (and electronically numbered in advance - very helpful). The hotel gets a very healthy discount on the parking charges (they give you a ticket to put in after the official one and a new tariff comes up on the screen) - all very efficient. Our room was at the front and was quiet despite being on the main drag; it was clean, reasonably sized, very comfortable and the bathroom was really well sized - not one of those tiny afterthoughts. Staff were helpful, armed with maps and explanations of things to do and see. The breakfast was splendid with some of the most charming and efficient staff - plenty of fresh fruit, nice hot choices, and nothing on an industrial scale. There is free wifi too. Just a street away the old town starts with its lovely little river-bridges, narrow streets and charming eateries.
All in all, this is a hotel cum B&B which is clean, comfy and efficient. It's a place to base yourself to see the town and set off for excursions rather than a hotel where you want to spend time in a hotel environment. It does what it says on the tin!

Room Tip: 301 at the front - quiet, comfy and a big bathroom.

The hotel is in a great location opposite the park and lake and within easy walking of all there is to see and do in Annecy and is close to many restaurants. The hotel is very basic and is in desperate need of renovations. The first room we were given was just awful, so we asked to be moved which the nice man at reception did without any fuss. The next room was much nicer, but very tired and lacking any charm. We did have a view of the lake and park which was lovely. The bathroom was huge with awful tiles and some type of plastic matting on the floor. The single beds pushed together were uncomfortable. Tea and coffee making and a tiny safe was available. Breakfast was OK, with very few choices.
Parking was nearby and the hotel got a reduced rate.
Sylvia at reception is an absolute treasure and was extremely friendly and helpful.

It is really a great location in front of the gorgeous lake and close to everything. The hotel is nice. It is clean, quiet, comfortable, free Wi-Fi, good breakfast and reasonable price. The garage is across from the street. Not very hospitable staff.
