Pros: Very nice staff. Free bus pass.
Cons: Noise!
Annoying expensive extras were too expensive - £31 (each!) for breakfast, £5.70 for a small bottle of water. Hotel staff were charming helpful and out of the top drawer. Room was too noisy with workmen and lorries out side the window making sleep impossible from 6 am onwards.

Best value for money in Geneva 5-star market

Hotel de la Paix is always a safe choice in Geneva. Even if it doesn't have the bling or grandeur of other 5 star hotels with regards to common areas such as lobby, bar, restaurants and gym their rooms are right up there with the best.

The location is excellent. Rooms are very clean. The service is outstanding. We stayed for a few days, went to the U.S.A then came back for one day. We arrived at ten a.m and our room was ready and the bag we left in the hotel was already in our room. The staff are amazing. Breakfast really nice.

I stayed here for one night laying over to fly back to the States. The location is spectacular right on the lake and central to restaurants and other sights. The rooms are extremely comfortable and decorated in a hip fashion that was very nice. I ended up eating in the bar as the restaurant was closed and the food was quite good. The only drawback to the hotel is that without the restaurant open at this time, the lobby does feel a bit quiet. The bar staff is attentive but not used to being restaurant staff. However my meal was incredible.

A beautiful hotel on the lake front. We had a garden view room which was peaceful and pretty. So clean, lots of lovely extras like Bulgari toiletries, robes, slippers. Amazingly comfortable bed. But the staff stood out-so polite, friendly and helpful. A great bartender with good restaurant recommendations. Slightly dated decor-but so clean and well maintained I didn't mind (and I'm very fussy!). The shower, although great water pressure, seemed to be an afterthought over the bath and drenched the floor every time. At least I didn't have to mop it up! Would definitely stay here again. Luxurious without being stuffy.
