    Historical Traveler Reviews Grand Hotel Kempinski Geneva

    Great Hotel


    We have just returned from a conference- weekend at the Grand Hotel Kempinski Geneva. The hotel is magnificent and we have never experienced such incredible service before. The food at the bar as well at the main restaurant with an unforgettable view over the lake of Geneva - you will never find that anywhere else in Geneva. At the nights - the bar is the Place to be and meet!

    The Room had a very good size, bathroom nearly new, the beds are quiet big and the services at the reception and housekeeping are outstanding.

    We will hopefully come back with our company to hold another meeting cause the ratio of services and prices are very good and our secretary had also good experience with the banqueting-staff.

    Great Views from the Restaurant


    I stayed in the Kempinski Hotel Geneva during a conference. The hotel is perfectly located and I got one of the recently renovated rooms. The restaurant has great views over the lake. The bar seems to be very popular as it was full to the rim.

    Fantastische Aussichten aus dem Restaurant


    Während einer Konferenz habe ich in dem Kempinski Hotel Genf übernachtet. Das Hotel ist perfekt gelegen, und ich bekam eins der neu renovierten Zimmer. Das Restaurant hat einen großartigen Blick auf den See. Die Bar scheint sehr beliebt zu sein - es war komplett voll!

    Unas vistas fantásticas desde el restaurante


    Me alojé en el hotel Kempinski de Ginebra durante una conferencia. El hotel tiene una ubicación perfecta, además conseguí una de las habitaciones que habían remodelado hace poco tiempo. El restaurante cuenta con unas vistas del lago estupendas. El bar parece ser muy popular ya que estaba lleno hasta la bandera.

    En rôdage


    nous avions l'habitude de fréquenter le Noga hilton qui vient d'être repris par la chaine Kempinski.

    l'hotel est toujours très bien placé, mais nous avons rencontré un certain nombre de désagréments.

    A notre arrivée, à 17h00, notre chambre n'était pas prête et on nous a demandé de patienter une demi-heure... A signaler que dans la chambre, il n'y avait aucune liste des numéros de téléphone de l'hotel permettant d'appeler le restaurant ou même la réception).

    Lorsque, à 17h05, nous avons voulu réserver une table pour deux au restaurant, le concierge nous a indiqué qu'il était complet. Or, lorsque nous nous sommes "pointés" vers 19h50, nous avons pu obtenir une table sans difficulté et apparemment, jusqu'à notre départ du restaurant vers 21h30, des tables pour deux étaient disponibles. il est à noter que la cuisine était excellente et le service empressé.

    Au retour dans la chambre, nous avons constaté qu'aucune lampe ne fonctionnait. D'après l'employé arrivé pour réparer, toutes les prises des lampes avaient été débranchées pour faciliter le nettoyage de la moquette et aucune n'avait été remise en place.

    Le personnel est très gentil, plein de bonne volonté, mais le management semble peu efficace.

    En définitive, il est vraisemblable que lors de notre prochain passage à Genève, nous irons dans un autre hotel.

    Good Hotel


    I recently stayed a week at the new Kempinski in Geneva. The hotel is mostly renovated, though not completely different from when it was the Noga Hilton a little more than a year ago. Gone mostly are the day glo plastic walls and other dated items in favor of earth tones etc. Most notably of all the renovations are the second floor restaurants and terraces, which form some of the finest vistas to have a meal or drink in all of Geneva. The pool and spa are only ok , but the rooms are very nice esp the plasma tvs and Hansgrohe fixtures in the bathrooms. The service in the hotel is also top notch -- esp the concierge who will book tours, loan adaptor plugs, or provide an umbrella all for no additional charge. The hotel is located right on Lake Leman (Lake Geneva) and there is a swimming and boat rental location directly across the street. Based on location, service, and cleanliness and quality of finishes, I would rate this hotel well above average as a business hotel, though not on par with a Ritz or Four Seasons. Any discount off the $500 or so summer rack rate and you've found a good deal!

    Me encantó


    Mi prometido y yo nos hospedamos en julio en este hotel donde pasamos el fin de semana y me encantó. No alojamos en una de las habitaciones con vistas al lago, que resultaba moderna y elegante a la vez. Como el tiempo era muy agradable, tomamos el desayuno en la terraza del restaurante donde las vistas son igual de perfectas y el bufé ofrecía una gran variedad de pan fresco y especialidades suizas. Casi habían acabado con las obras de remodelación. Algunas de las entradas continuaban cerradas, además se veía que todavía no se habían dado algunos toques pero por supuesto que estoy decidida a alojarme allí otra vez cuando vuelva a Génova.

    Loved it!


    My fiance and me stayed at the hotel in July for the week-end and we loved it! We stayed in one of the rooms with view overlooking the lake which was modern and elegant at the same time. As we had great weather, we took the breakfast on the terrace of the restaurant which has this same perfect view and the buffet had a large choice of fresh breads and swiss specialities.

    The renovations are nealy finished. Some of the outlets were still closed and some details will need to get done but I'm definetely going to stay there again when returning to Geneva!

    The Hilton is now a Kempinski, but only the name has changed...


    I have stayed in this hotel several times over the last 4 years. Originally called the Noga Hilton, then Palace Hilton or something like that and now finally changed owner to become a Kempinski.

    Having returned the first time after the 'extensive renovation' I expected to finally find a hotel that is in line with a 5-Star standard. First impression was good, the lobby, the restaurants, hallway etc. are all new and shiny and luxurious.

    BUT: The rooms (most of them?) are still the same. I understand that some floors have been 'updated' but the one I stayed on (4th floor - the 'brown' one) is still as it used to be. Horrible and worn off seventies style with color schemes developed by the blind, not to mention the smelling carpet....

    The only thing that has changed in the room is a big flat screen TV which is a nice to have but I would have preferred a bathroom with light that doesn't upset my stomach in the morning...

    In a nutshell: NEVER AGAIN

    A shame because the location is still great and the potential is there...

    Loved it. Very nicely renovated


    My wife and I spent a weekend at the Kempinski in March and it was just fantastic. We got a room with views to the lake, and it was just great to see the jet d'eau from our bed. We had breakfast in the room both mornings looking at the lake.

    As the hotel was still undergoing renovation not all services were availble, but we didn't miss anything but the pool.

    The room was spotless clean and nicely decorated, the bathroom was great, with really nice toiletries, and as I already mentioned, the view was fantastic.

    Having stayed here several times already as a Hilton, I must say the hotel has extremely improved its image, and service continues to be of the highest standards.

    I will continue to stay at the Kempinski on my trips to Geneva, and I would defenetely recommend it to everyone.

    I have to admit though there was one person who rubbed me the wrong way at the event. It goes against my personal opinion because I don't like catty school girl before like talking about people behind their back but it shocked me so much I have to share my experience. There was a women there who actually came with one of our friends but long story short had just meet. The first encounter with this women which was the first ...

    ... nice people, had good food and Riley had a blast dancing! Yes that's right Riley burn the floor up again. In spite of the nap we started to feel the jet lag early so around 10 we decided to end home. The trip home took a little longer because the festivities around our apartment were in full swing. This weekend a festival started to celebrate the national holiday. There were food booths, carnival rides, and drink booths (or lounges). ...

    ... If my memory is correct on the one item I brought yesterday there was no tax. Most things we buy have very little tax. There are a lot less deductions on Phil's salary. I know back in Canada health care is free but obviously they have to get the money some where therefore high taxes. I get that but that can't be all. How is it that a Province or Country can have such high taxes but major issues with the health care, bad roads, large debt and who knows what else. ...

When he came by he stopped and I said your my boyfriend. I guess Riley proceeded to hide his face with his fists. She than said something about him being really cute! I know that but it's always nice to hear that! It was funny, it made me laugh.

    ... so far we like the pizza from a pizzeria by our apartment. We had to go all the way to Italy to find out the place by our apartment is the best imagine that!

    After dinner we decided to walk back. It was a decent walk about 30 minutes but it was early and nice out. The way back took us through the Roman Forum and pass the Colosseum. It was a beautiful walk. It's really unbelievable how much ruins have survived over the year. There everything in Rome.
