Murder of Sissi and presumably German politician Uwe Barschel ... founding of Czech Republic ... Hotel history lovers will feel at home in the Beau-Rivage. The rather new tented fumoir on the terrace is great for cigar addicts and a place to meet interesting people. The overall look and feel is a bit too puffy, floral, overladen for my taste, but it does create a certain high-level intimacy. Service can be mixed, probably because of the many outside guests, until they know you. My first choice in Geneva remains the La Reserve (the other hotel in town with a cigar room), but admittedly the Beau-Rivage's location is much better, being walking distance to Rue du Rhone and a direct view on the lake fountain.
