Very excellent location. staff are great. No swimming pool.
Rooms are very small
Courtesy and assistance extended by all members of staff -- especially by those at the concierge desk Small closets, limited drawer space, wallpaper separating from wall. This gives the room a somewhat shabby appearance
Staff very helpful. Excellent restaurant. Facilities generally very good with a first class situation on the waterfront in Geneva. My first night coincided with a disco on the 5th floor. It was noisy and intrusive and out of place in a 5* hotel. The management dealt with my concern admirably, including a subsequent discussion with the General Manager who was genuinely concerned.
Ample room and large, well equipped bathroom with tub and shower stall; nice piano bar; concierge very pleasant and helpful. Great location. Food and service in main diningroom was not up to par for such a nice hotel.
location, room, bathroom
Watching the view from the hotel, onto Lake Geneva, the food, the chocolates and the tv in the bathroom.
Luxury hotel without the sometimes overwhelwing fuss - excellent, discreet, service, pleasant and friendly staff. Godd facilities. Great location. We had a great break.
Proximity for shopping
Very expensive. Small room. Old model of the bad. Very expensive room service. Very bad and expensive internet connection - moonzon. Refund of the deposit was after four weeks.
very central, nicely decorated very poor breakfast....
The room was charming, elegant - with a fireplace This was a very expensive hotel, yet the carpet in the room was worn and stained.
the traditional style the noise on the place
The breakfast is a very poor, There is not fitness room, it don't requirements the 5 star hotel,
the staff is very kind, very good location in the city center, late check out without extra charges
Excellent traditional restaurant with good service;convenience and location;helpful staff No
Charles on reception was fantastic at providing information on where to eat/what to see etc All fantastic
Service and quality of the room
Staying at Les Armures was a real treat. The whole ambiance and quiet, understated charm made it an unforgettable experience. Just one comment. When the hotel has created such a wonderful atmosphere throughout, eating breakfast should not be interrupted by the sound of hoovering coming from the kitchen - 2 days out of 3.
Superb hotel with very good restaurant and excellent staff !!!
the hotle location the services and the staff yes, the ironing board is not avialble unless you send your cloths for press in the hotle and that cost me more money ( i did not like that at all ) also the breakfast is continantal i thought it is full english breakfast every thing with extra chage
it was quiet, comfortable and completely professional. All the staff were very helpful at all times.
The hotel is perfectly located for all who wanna get more about old Geneva . Personel is very attentive and friendly
comfortable rooms, nicely renovated and decorated. Inaccurate info given on their website. It said: "Wi-fi is available in the rooms and is free of charge", but when we enquired upon arrival, it actually would cost 20 chf per day for this service!
the location (centre), the architecture, the whole picture in fact
Restaurants and Business services
Breakfast. All was so fresh and very tasty! NO
The pool and related facilities were very good
excellent staff, very pleasant surroundings, very comfortable, room quiet. Food very good.
1.Grand Hotel Kempinsky is a luxury hotel, but what was more then excellent was staff attitude , help, and feeling they serve you without feeling they waiting for tips as many times I felt at other hotels, any problem at each level was answered promptly and pleasantly always over any expectations we might have. They give more then necessary on any request like our satisfaction is their only purpose. The hotel restaurants are excellent , the staff very honest in their help thinking for us benefit.We inquired for a special dish -well the waiter suggested that maybe we should share it as it might be enough for sharing.We got this italian speciality it was excellent and indeed enough for two and it was not the most expensive choice on the menu. They give us cards for public transport in Geneva good for train, bus or tram, or the boat in front of the hotel to take us over the lake in the middle of Geneva downtown. Only point of weakness we found was the slow WIFI in our room, but instead they gave us free wired internet connection super fast both at upload and download. That served any business connection I needed.
service room service
very very splendid hotel !!!
The location of the hotel is the best, rooms are clean and relativly new, the staff of the hotel specially the concierge Jereme and Jonathan were amazingly top class and helpfull. This was a honeymoon trip and within we have visited Rome, Capri, Venice, Geneve, and Paris. This hotel is the only hotel that didn't even bother to give us an upgrade in any way not even a better view room. Other hotel all upgrded us and one hotel gave us thier best suit and it was a 5 start hotel.
They liked the staff, but certain things weren't working. Roomsafe, didn't work and the pool was not heated as promised. Again the staff was very great. The insecurity about the fact that you don't know if you have a view. For the price you should have a view. I went round to ask for this and they couldn't garantuee this. Well, if you know you are full then you know how you are going to devide the rooms. All was well in the end though.
very good location the leisure facilities were closed for refurb ,also the bar and 2 of the restaraunts - we were not informed by e-mail about this
The concierge gave false/conflicting answers/suggestions most of the time.
The location, friendliness and superb help and response of the staff
Amazing service. Their staff is first rate. Newly restored rooms are beautiful and elegant.
staff support, care of the gustes cooling system (there is no Air condition)
Location and friendliness nein
Comfort and ambience. Should have advertised the fact that the restaurant was closed until 25th Aug.
The service and style other than in the restaurant The very poor service in the restaurant
I was forced to wait my room up to 4:00 p.m.
Excellent and absolutely stunning location, Windows restaurant not cheap but serves great food, convenient entertainment at leopard room till 2 a.m, staff give personal and friendly service always - we were accompanied to the up market night club across the road by a leopard room senior staff member and that's really brilliant.
Everything The room was a bit small
the hotel is beautifully positioned at the lake right infront of the water taxi , part of the public transportation .Amazing breakfast !(not included) every hour some roomservice was given , which for us was a bit too much .
Very attentive staff who were most helpful. I damaged my knee skiing and the stafdf happily brought ice packs to reduce the swelling.
very helpful staff, excellent location close to shoping, transportation and to a beutiful scenery meanly the "lake le man" rooms a little bit small
Perfect! very comfortable, very beautiful, everything is well done! no compliances at all!!
The staff were very courteous. We had a nice view from our window. The lounge near the entrance is lovely but the furniture is very uncomfortable. Room 123 was nicely decorated. Room 324 less so. Both nights were disrupted by loud music from the bar below. After midnight on the 2nd night, we asked to be moved to another room. Packing our luggage and moving (into a worse room) added to the aggravation of the noise problem. We lost 4 hours sleep and received no compensation on our bill when we checked out. We would not choose this hotel again.
This is an immaculate boutique hotel. Excellent services.
Convenient location Noise and vibration from electrical unit behind bed
the room was quiet cold and noissy because of the aircondition what i could no close....
a luxury hotel, deserving of its membership in Dorchester. Extremely kind staff. For the price, ought to include a nice breakfast as in other Swiss hotels we stayed in.
The staff was outstanding. It is exactly what you would expect from a hotel of its reputation. The food was way over priced, and not very good at all. The very same reason we chose the hotel turned out to be its downfall. It was New Years eve and we just wanted to walk 1 block to the lake, and my husband got pick pocketed. Afterwards we were advised that is not safe at night to leave the hotel. That defeated the reason we chose the location in the first place. Did I say how bad the food was?????
Everything was perfect, but very expensive, personnel very polite and welcoming, very well trained, smiling, warm.The effort done to memorise the name of guest is very nice, I felt that personnel of the hotel was so much good, every one knows his job perfectly.It was a real pleasure staying at this excellent hotel.We was upgraded to a bigger room, and we apreciate it. I have some comments on internet which is not free, and very , very expensive, 35 CHF is a lot for 24 hours, usually when I travel in 5 stars hotels around the world, it is free.They should make it free considering the nightly rates 765CHF. Spa treatment excessively expensive, 860 CHF for 2 massage & 2 treatment is huge, breakfast 96CHF is absolutely out of the standard. Finally for the money we paid the quality of the tissue paper in the room was less than poor, and the mini soaps was not changed during our stay for 4 days!!, they really should have bigger soaps if they dont change that offen. I hope they will do an effort on the different comments I made, I really would like to get back to this hotel in the summer maybe.Regard
The staff were all exceptionally helpful. The bar was delightful and the breakfast excellent. The lobby decor is a bit strange....
The confort of the room the efficiancy of the staf the restorant was very good for breakfast and diner the location is very handy you can wall to every where in the town Nothing that I can recall
All the hotel staff called me by my name since the moment I arrived. Location is excellent, but it is not the best in the city. With the same price I could have got better.
large, spacious room, beautiful hotel in a very central location,Excellent service
In a hotel of this price class, a small flower, some fruit and piece of chocolate on the pillow would significantly improve the feeling.
Location and Quality of the Restuarant View from the room
The bed was wonderful, The staff was very helpful. The facilities are great. The price was high but the premeir location in a cosmopolitan city masde it bearable.
good location, good view, good service stairs required to access restaurant, tiny portions in restaurant
It is an old fashioned hotel with service put at a premium. As a privately owned hotel it is unique and does not feel part of a chain.
The staff were very concerned to meet out every need. WHen we arrived there had been major road closures and we had to park our car 10 mins walk away from the hotel. At their suggestion, they went and collected the car from where we had left it and brought it back to the hotel. They also helped us with other practical questions, with commitment, initiative and imagination.
its a too expensive accomodation
Location of the Hotels is superior, food is one of the best in the city, every guest feels recognised and welcomed. I would recommend the Hotel to my every friend. No
The spa is excellent and the staff was very polite and proffesianal.All over the hotel is very good.
Everything. It was wonderful. No
We had a great time, the staff were very helpful, the food is exellent, the room was very light and comfortable. In general the hotel was a very pleasant find The only thing which did not score high was the veiw from the window. It was overlooking the concrete part of the internal garden
The restaurant (Indian) was oustanding food and service. The rooms whilst on the small side are excellent, and have the best beds, bathrooms etc. The entertainment (tv) had multiple channels in a variety of languages rather than just bbc/cnbc etc.
Staff was friendly, knowledgeable and helpful
Staff were above average. Room size was good. Significant mistakes on the bill (>100CHF). Staff checked, agreed they were mistakes, and removed without problem to be fair, but surprising they'd got on there.
the attention of the staff to their guests
The hotel staff was prof and has the sence of perfect hospitallity
convenient, clean & good size bathroom
Service of the staff. The lady staff at the reception was very helpful and friendly.
free WI-FI is very useful, central and quet location
The location is perfect The restaurant and the lack of parking facilities
Good location could walk to all areas around the city. Very clean and comfortable rooms. A great hotel if ur just looking for a lovely room and like to eat in resturants, and do activities outside your hotel. Thought resturant had stuffy atmosphere and was very expensive but it did not upset us because there are endless nice resterants in geneva.
location high cost
Great Staff. Comfortable beds and very nice bathroom
Everything the breakfast it's not good, could be better!
Staff of the hotel was very friendly and attentive, interior of the hotel and room is very nice No
Nice situation in the city. Good bed. Smell in the room. Very poor breakfast for very strange price. Common feeling of the old bad maintained building.
the room ,thier customer experince nothing
Convenience of location, firendly welcome afforded by all hotel staff, comfortable and perfectly sound-proofed room.
It central position We were upgraded into a duplex unit, but the airconditioning was puzzling and beyond our control. The downstairs sitting room area was very hot. Also, the TV internet was difficult to use, because the mouse was not sensitive, but there is facility for one to use with a bought card in the office. The staff were efficient and friendly.
The staff were excellent. Really friendly and helpful. I thought the food was over-priced and the breakfast was poor.
Charme, rooms and staff
The hotel doesn't have a parking and he is not responsible of any car. and the WIFI doesn't work.
amazing service .. excellent location .. staff were extremely friendly loved everything
Hotel is convenient to the waterfront and rail station. Hotel is in dire need of a renovation. The elevators are ancient, slow and can only manage 2 persons with baggage. Probably can't fix this...but room lock technology was not working well. For me and someone else at that same time. Rooms are clean but spartan...lacking any design creativity. Bathtub/shower is too narrow, deep and combination with a smooth floor makes for an awkward (and hazardous) in/out. For the rate I was charged, I expected much better.
The room was very generously proportioned and clean. The location was perfect for wandering around Geneva. Possibly the extra charge for breakfast, but to be fair the standard price for the room was higher than our cost even with the breakfast charge.
The polite and friendly staff It did not have a wide enough choice on the breakfast room service menu
Good Location, could walk from train station and very near to the Lake and all the attractions
the view Internet conexion
location, good views, staff excellent no
A nice, older hotel, conveniently located. Beds were comfortable, air conditioning was good. Front desk staff was very friendly. Staff was receptive to finding an acceptable room and exchanging when we were not happy with the assigned room double bed. Rooms very small. Wallpaper had handprints on one wall, but possibly this occurred when paper was hung. Retrofitted shower glass on tub allowed water to flood the bathroom.
Thought the location and amenities were fantastic. I did feel at times the staff at reception really let the hotel down. I found them to be quite moody. The doormen were excellent. I didn't any of the food and beverage facilities.
Stuff, athmosphere and locations are the main reason to stay in the hotel. In the non-smoking room at night was strong smell of smoking from another room
It was a great location The staff weren't as helpful compared to other 4 star standards. If I was to recommend the hotel, I would recommend a larger room, not a single room, as it wasn't that comfortable or easy to work in.
I like their staff, they are very helpful and I like the location of the hotel.
Well located in the city and we were upgraded to a room with a lovely lake view. The bed was very comfortable and the room size was generous. Would have been really nice to have an English speaking movie option.
The closeness to everything. The river view also. Their attitude the first day, but after that the front desk was fine.
This is a nice hotel near the train station. Friendly staff. Large rooms for Switzerland. Location not too exciting but convenient. Like much in Switzerland it is very expensive.
Location & the room was perfect They need a better lift
The hotel was impressive from the initial check-in by the attentive staff, the helpful advice about shopping, and restaurants, and general friendliness I thought the breakfast was sparse, eespecially for the price
Large room,. Clean and refurbished to an high standard. Staff gentle and very helpful
The staff was very friendly and helpfull. The elevator does not reach the 7th floor and I had to walk up the stairs to reach my room.
A very nice hotel..comfortable bed and very clean Breakfast buffet was very basic
The room was great. The location was great. They neglected my early-moring wake-up call despite the fact that I double checked it. I would have missed my flight home had I not set the alarm in the room.
Proximity to the old town and friendly staff Noise, rooms are not noise proof. You hear people walking in the corridors, doors banging at odd hours of the night.
The location is great. It is close to the train station and close to old town. We stayed in a "duplex suite". On the internet it is shown with a loft. The only thing in the loft is a shower and vanity. Downstairs the bedroom is tiny, and although it is called a suite, there was no sitting area. We had to sit on the end of the bed or on the steps leading up to the shower.
The fact there was no traffic noise ,yet you are right in the heart of the city. For me this is a very big plus point.Another plus point for me is a comfortable bed. This was excellent.
