                  the music in the bar in the evening was actually a disco - not exactly what you expect in a 5 star hotel. will not go again

                  The room was excellent!

                  Hotel is situated a little bit far from the main shopping street

                  The location

                  the servis in restaurant and bar was poor, most of the young staff was unprofesional

                  Breakfast  is tooooooo expensive and nothing special

                  The hotel is very nice directly located on the shores of lake Geneva close to downtown. Most of the things used are of top quality like Bang&Olfsen tv which can be connected to Ipad & Iphone and the best types of food at breakfast. It has a very good Libanese Resturant. The hotel Staff are friendly and efficient.

                  I liked everything in this hotel; the fabulous and sophesticated rooms, cleanliness of the rooms and corridors, stunning lobby, concierge, friendly and helping staff, hotel restaurant and their unlimited services.

                  Simply nothing.
