Hotel Les Armures
Travel Blogs from Geneva
Our first day of real rain and it doesn't look like its going to go away. Well, we just had to gear up and get on with the plans - a 42km bike ride around the lake. My run in Lyon had started my cough up again and I was sure it was the polluted air so I was keen to get out and exercise in this beautiful clear mountain air and suck it in, so we set off at noon to 'do the loop'. It wasn't cold and only a fine rain so we were able to shelter easily, keeping dry until we got ...

Bought milk in Spar and food in garage. . Went for walk to old town. Had creeps. Cold Walked and sat by lake. Back to hotel. Lovely ...
Packed up and ready to move on, we got reception to ring and book us in for lunch at Le Musee, voted no 1 restaurant in Lyon by Trip Advisor. While the food has earned it michellin star rating, its the unique approach of the owner that gets it its rave reviews. When we rocked up at 12 noon, they were not ready so Luc took us out the back for a tour of his own troboule and in only 2-3 words of English explained its use in the resistance, the work of various tenants now, mainly ...
... they have is that we were given a free travel card when we checked into the hotel. This enabled free and unlimited use of the buses, trams and water taxis around the city. We had a spot of lunch in a pasta restaurant in the old town and made our way back to pick up the laundry and visit the local bike shop to pick up supplies. Dinner tonight was in the same restaurant as ...
... and the sun came out for the photos. A short ride took us to our hotel in Geneva and after a quick shower we met for our celebration meal. Mixed emotions for Bryan and I as we say goodbye to all but 4 of the group as they travel home tomorrow. Tomorrow we will be joined by a further 11 cyclists with fresh legs for the final push into Nice. Route for today http://connect.garmin.com/activity/3746 ...
How has this hotel rated in the past?
Grosse odeur de fromage. Personnel très moyen, polis, mais pas sympathique. Un peu d'attente. Sans charme....

Loved Les Armures
We loved the room where we stayed over Christmas. The only downside was that the restuarant was closed over Christmas as were most. We loved walking through the old part of Geneva in which this Hotel is situated.The breakfast which was included was the best we had anywhere.
We even had a wonderful view from our window
My wife and I stayed for two nights in June. We arrived not knowing there was a music festival going on which was a pleasent surprise. However the taxi could not get near the hotel so we had a long up-hill walk. Since we were in the middle of a two week trip - we had a bit more luggage then normal. On arrival to the hotel - they upgraded us for the inconvience.
We stayed at the hotel at the end of March 2005 and really enjoyed it. The place is small and cozy but the rooms are generous size. The room was very nice and well finished and the bathroom very nice. Unfortunately, as in many small European hotels, all the rooms are smoking rooms so ours smelled a bit of smoke but not too bad. It can be noisy if you like to sleep with the windows open as it is in the old part of town and a lot of people are walking around but this was not too bad either. We had dinner at the hotel restraunt and it was extremely good and was crowded (which is another good sign).
This is a great hotel!
I stayed in this hotel for business and I thought that it was really great. I really enjoyed the hotel's great character and location. The rooms were great overlooking a little square and the staff where very helpful. I would strongly recommend this hotel to anyone going to Geneva.
Couldn't be better!!
After doing much research over the internet, we decided to stay at the Hotel Les Armures for 5 days in September. In fact, it surpassed our expectation and we are extremely pleased with our choice. The room and bathroom are spacious, and the service is excellent. I would highly recommend it to anyone who visits Geneva. Do pop in to the hotel restaurant and try out its famous cheese fondue!!
A fantastic little hotel, right in the heart of the old town. Rooms are fantastic, and spotless bathrooms contain tons of marble and gleaming silver. Totally recommended.
Found the hotel on the internet a few days before coming to Geneva. A special promotion was offered for the weekend we were arriving. We were pleasantly surprised by the beautiful rooms, attentive staff, excellent breakfast, and perfect location in the old section of town. According to the hotel, both President Jimmey Carter and Bill Clinton had stayed there with their families. Now they can add us to the guest list.
Lovely hotel in prime location, old part of Geneva
Beautiful hotel in an excellent location. Walking distance of business district and shopping. Excellent fondue in the hotel restaurant - best consumed outdoors !
Old Town Luxury in Geneva
What an flawless gem among so many hotels in the lovely city of Geneva, Switzerland! This luxurious hotel in beautiful Old Town is perfection. Our visit last year was during a very hot and humid weekend and our comfortably air conditioned room was a God-send for us! The hotel staff could not be more helpful and friendly. Beautiful hotel on the inside and out. This hotel is a real find in a city full of "bigger is better" accommodation. In fact, we are returning for a weekend this month. An added tip ... don't leave Geneva without having dinner at the best Italian restaurant in the city "La Favola"! As for the little table upstairs with the view of the Jet d'Eau!
