... off the route descriptions from our e-guidebook (we have the hard copy of the book but left it at home to save weight), finding out how it differs from the GPS tracks, which unfortunately is significantly. So we have a highlighter to colour in the areas to look out for on our 1:200,000 map (1cm=2km). Oh yeah, this is going to be fun... Our laundry has finished drying, so at least for this next stage, we will start off fresh and ...

... inside were all booked out, but we think we saw some hadrons... We were interested to find out that the 27km circumference underground tunnel doesn't go under the mountains at all - just under the countryside near Geneva. Apparently it's 100m below the ground! We found ourselves standing above the Atlas detector. We enjoyed reading and hearing about how they use the accelerator to re-create the high-energy environment shortly after the ...

... and we seized this opportunity to get the tent packed up, and soon enough we were on our way. Our legs warmed up quickly, as we rode uphill immediately to leave the campsite. Up, up and up into the vineyards on the hill high above the campsite. After a fair bit of climbing, we reached the spot we were at yesterday, where I thought the climbing would end. It didn't. Up, up, and up. Then super steep down. Then super steep up, possibly the steepest ups ...

The Le Jet d'Eau dominates the lake with its water spout surging at 550 litres per second to a height of 140mtrs.

The other thing that stands out is the abundance of huge flags adorning the cities bridges and buildings of note and ...

... it was simply stunning. We are officially fans of European train travel!

We checked into our hotel which is conveniently located right across the street from the train station. Apparently Gigi booked what is considered an Executive Suite, and so we discovered all sorts of complimentary goodies in our room. We even have our own private terrace overlooking the city.

Geneva is surprisingly much ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel De La Paix Geneva

    Great one night stay

    from

    My wife and I stayed in a superior double room for one night. The service was very polite and friendly. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Air conditioning in the hotel generally was not quite cool enough although it was 30 degrees outside! Best to go looking for somewhere to eat in the old town.

    A Grand Dame Restored to its former glory

    from

    We just returned last week from a six night stay at this fabulous hotel. Having read some of the older reviews on Trip Advisor before booking our stay, we were initially not inclined to stay here, despite having heard that the hotel had undergone a makeover. But at the urging of our travel agent and a family member who is living in Geneva and who saw a newspaper article announcing the grand reopening, we took a chance. We are very glad we did. The hotel is lovely, the service was excellent, the staff could not have been better and the restaurant, Vertig"O", was exceptional. And to build their business back to acceptable levels, the rates (at least for now), are very appealing in light of Geneva's steep hotel rates. It is a relatively small hotel, with a single bar, and the restaurant and lobby areas are small, but the rooms are very large, well-appointed, and luxurious in their feel and decoration. We would unhesitatingly recommend the Hotel de la Paix.

    Fantastic ! Entirely renovated. The place where to stay

    from

    I heard about the Hotel de la Paix before it was renovated. Nothing to compare today to what I was told. The decor is fantastic and the staff is so nice and helpful. I stayed in a "Goutte d'Eau" room. Everything has been though to make you feel so fine. The view I had from my room to the Lake was amazing. I also had the chance to try their new restaurant "Vertig'O" the day it opened : it is definitely the place where to go !

    Total disapointment

    from

    There is no reason to stay at the Hotel de la Paix a part from its location. The rooms shown on the website are probably very nice but my boyfriend and I surely did not get one of them! The hotel is outdated and really needs renovation, which is mysterious since the Concorde Hotel website claims it was renovated in 2004.

    I cannot understand how it has 5 stars. The bathrooms were OK but for Hotel de la Paix a King size bed means two beds pushed together. I had never stayed in a 5 star hotel before and was very excited. It was a total let-down and a rip-off. Don't stay in the hotel de la paix, unless you really have to.

    A Grand Hotel Renewed

    from

    ran a conference at the hotel --great food and service. newly renovated rooms charming and with wonderful lake-side views. Staff could not be more helpful. An excellent experience

    Shabby

    from

    This hotel was pretty average from the outside, but had a stunning lobby. However, the rooms didn't live up to the initial wow. Although booked well in advance, specifically requesting twin beds as I was travelling with my sister, and despite an e-mail cofirmation that yes, the room would have twin beds, we turned up to find a double. The room had a grand appearance - if you were partially sighted. The walls were dirty with paint peeling off, the carpet was thread bare, the chairs had many stains all over them, the bath clogged up within seconds of running the shower, there were no tea/coffee facilities, and no room service. There was an overpriced, minute mini bar. You had to leave your key with reception if you went out, but on your return just had to give your room number to retrieve it - you could have said anything - there were no checks. Any food/drink we had purchased ourselves and left in the room was taken by the cleaners in the morning, and on departure we were charged for items from the mini-bar we didn't take, but they said they would waive this, however on return to the UK, I discovered that they have actually charged me for items not consumed. We were both very dissappointed with the Hotel De La Paix and would never return there, or stay in any other Concorde Hotels.

    The five star fraud

    from

    Their claim to be a five star hotel is fraud. If you are expecting a two star hotel and paid ~$120 CHF for your room you will be pleased with the excellent location and interesting ambience of a 19th century hotel. If you paid anything close to the 500 to 700 CHF they claim is their rack rate and were expecting a five star hotel you will feel cheated.

    How Low can you GO

    from

    I arrived from Paris on wet cold November evening. The elevator whooshed me up to the sixth floor and Igor introduced me to room No 62. The décor and ambiance reminded me of East-Berlin or Warsaw in 1985 ish just before the fall. The paint was peeling off the walls and electrical extension cord incongruently criss-crossed the room. The telephone did not work and the lamps did not have any working light bulbs. If you ever feel like you have reached the end of the road and, you have tired of life then you should consider l hotel de la Paix to commit your final act.

    Very Disappointing

    from

    Stayed Dec 7 - 14 2003.This is not a 5 star hotel! or 4 or 3.Nice location, just in front of the Lake. But that is it.Customer service was very poor, housekeep toke item away rather than supply them. Bathroom paper was regularly missing and many problems with the billing.So I thought that I was the only one with problems until I met others with their own stories.Should you stay their - Unfortunatly no, the location is great but not if you don't get service.

    Bad ass hotel

    from

    The hotel is truly a 5 star property. The lobby is eloquent and the rooms are spacious. Also, you can't beat the location. Worth every penny.
