Eclectic throughout, old school charm. Competently and sufficiently staffed, as soon as you enter the house, you just have drop all of those outer world issues...
Facilities and rooms maybe a bit too frozen in the past.

I stayed at this hotel for two nights and was truly impressed by the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff especially front office and concierge staff. They not only remember you by name but they go out of their way to please you, anticipate your needs and give you great suggestions.

The hotel is a perfect symbiosis of old world charm and modern amenities. It is in great shape and the cleanliness is impeccable. The room I stayed in was huge, the bathroom fantastic with shower and bathtub as well as a double sink and the bed extremely comfortable.

I recommend this hotel to anyone travelling on business or leisure who appreciates tradition without wanting to compromise on modern amenities like free wi-fi or flat screen TVs. In addition, the location of the hotel is perfect. It is right on the lake, close to the train station and you just have to cross the bridge to get to the old town.

Thank you for a fabulous stay in an iconic hotel!

I allways use this Hotel when come to Geneva. First because of the atmosphere of an "old-time" of a small but stylish palace, spacious and perfectly equipped rooms, very friendly and helpful staff, very nice bar with live piano music, spectacular views over the Lake and secondly because of a very good location overlooking the lake and a possibility of a short but very pleasant walk to the city center using one of the beautiful bridges across the Lake. Breakfast has almost everything you need and the staff is open to meet your even special request. For example they always prepare a fish and salad for my husband who uses to eat this on breakfast. Their scrambled eggs with mushrooms is among my favorites!
And try their orange with chocolate marmelade, it's very tasty!

Room Tip: Choose the room with lake view, you will not be disappointed. Higher floor is better

We have stayed there a number of times and it still excels. Traditional, not over large but with all the facilities and great staff. Really good breakfast with plenty of choice and great dining options. A relaxing gem.

We traveled with our 13 months son. I wrote an e-mail in advance to ask a baby cot in room, and they promised they will, but it turned out nothing appeared in our room.
With a high room price I expected to have a high quality service, and it's very disappointed.
The room is nice, but there is nowhere else you can go in the hotel (no swimming pool or something like that).
BTW, if you want to book this hotel, don't book it on HotelClub. You can get the same price with breakfast (which is worth CHF 47.- per adult and per meal) on other website.

Every time live brings me to Geneva, I come to Beau Rivage Hotel. I consider it to be one of the city landmarks, and what de-facto it is. If time or money do not allow you to stay there, come just for a meal: the chef is a true artist, they will spoil you with compliments, and even breakfast is an event to remember and is internationally noteworthy. The place has 5 stars, but should be claiming more: I would not be able to count a dozen hotels of that level in Europe: a couple of hotels in Paris, Dorchester in London, Taleon Club in St. Petersbourg and… it’s sister Beau Rivage hotel in Lausanne…

In many good hotels you have staff who are well trained, -- the difference is: in Beau Rivage they handle your matters with intelligence and artistism. The rooms are irreproachable.

The main message the hotel wants to convey to the guest: “Remember this stay! You have succeeded in your life (at least economically)”, and you have the right to comfort in the first row… And watching the lake Leman fountain right from the hotel window, it is hard to disagree…
