Nice hotel

4 out of 5
by from West Sussex
Posted Oct 25, 2016
Pros: Ideally a lake view is best - we had a glimpse which was disappointing.
Cons: Expensive for a room with limited lake views. Was a bit noisy and pricey for food.
Location: Great spot with lots of attractions close by.

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to post a review on Expedia and for your flattering remarks. We are happy to learn you have enjoyed your stay in the Grand Hotel Kempinski Geneva. I regret the poor impression of our rooms with a partial lake view, which are moderns and very functional. On a brighter note, I am delighted to read that you enjoyed the great location of the hotel. We look forward to seeing you again! Best regards, Thierry Lavalley General Manager

Excellent Hotel with Fantastic Staff

5 out of 5
by from Vancouver, Canada
Posted May 4, 2016
Pros: Location, Hotel Design, Hotel Room Amenities and Comfortability, and Amazing Excellent Staff
Cons: Outlet in the bathroom for ladie's hair appliances, not just men's shavers.
Location: Central location to town and on the lake with beautiful views from many rooms and restaurants.
While this hotel is very pricey, it is well worth it. I booked 2 rooms for our family. The rooms were beautiful and very comfortable. Lots of light and well appointed supplies were in each room. The only thing missing was an outlet in the bathroom for my hair appliance. So I had to curl my hair while sitting at the desk, which was fine. Central location with the free boat across the street to the main downtown area. The staff were super nice and accomodating. The front receptionists were all very pleasant, well dressed and super professional. Their English was great. The bell men and security people in the lobby were very attentive and helpful. We ate in the Chinese restaurant and the general restaurant on the 2nd floor. All of the waiters were amazing and very friendly.Smiling all the time. Food excellent. We found this a pleasant surprise for Switerland. Our daughter goes to school in a nearby town, so we come often to Switzerland to visit. Since waiters and staff don't work for tips, it is very rare to get good service in Switzerland. We ate at 2 Michelin restaurants in Switzerland, and they provide amazing service, but other than that, waiters and waitresses and not normally very attentive. But this hotel and their staff provided the best service in Switzerland.

Terrible room

4 out of 5

Posted Mar 25, 2016
Pros: Location, and indoor pool
Cons: Hospitality
Location: Location is great very central and walking distance to shops and restaurants
Our room was terrible. Cramped L shaped room with no view. Beds were uncomfortable. Worst of all, quality of air in the room. I could not breathe properly both nights from stuffiness even after I asked to change the pillows to hypoallergenic. There was a peculiar smell in the room like oil and in the shower. I think the room should be inspected 4474. Overall, this hotel was the worst Kempinski I have ever stayed. As a GHA member, they did not do anything for me. They did not upgrade the room, neither offer any dining experiences. The staff were cold and dry. I really did not feel welcome in this hotel. The hospitality factor was missing.

Probably best hotel in Geneva

5 out of 5
by from London, UK
Posted Mar 15, 2016
Our day was a pretty bad one to begin with, stuck on a transfer from Val d'Isere for almost 7 hours due to traffic, to miss our flight and then no flights until next morning, to make it worse it was on my birthday. I quickly used Expedia to book us into Kempinski as I has previously stayed and expected them to change the course of our evening. And this was the turning point of our day, from the warm welcome on our arrival, to be upgraded to a recently renovated awesome rooms, to recieve a complementary bottle of champagne for my birthday and then icing on the cake to recieve two bags of take away breakfast as we were leaving 4 am to catch a 6 am flight and would have missed their breakfast. We had a drink at the Java club inside the hotel which was also awesome. The only regret was that we had to leave the comfy bed behind to catch our flight.

Great location. Walk to everything. Helpful staff. Chefs at breakfast go out of their way to make you and your children happy. In spite of being in the upper price category - this hotel provides a great value as it was considerably less expensive than the nearby Four Seasons, which belongs in the same group quality/service-wise.

Excellent hotel in an excellent position

5 out of 5
by from England
Posted Mar 17, 2015
Pros: It's location and excellent customer service experience.
Cons: No
Location: It's location is beside the lake and with a super view of Jet d'Eau, within easy walking distance of all public transport links.
My wife and I stayed for 4 nights from the 5th March to 9th March in a partial lake view room. The hotel staff, at reception including the concierge, restaurant and house keeping were all extremely polite, very informative, knowledgeable and attentive and knowledgeable. From when we checked in to when we checked out the whole experience was very relaxed and we felt very comfortable throughout our time there. The hotel is of a very high standard we would most definitely stay there again and would have concerns in recommending it to others.
