Grosse odeur de fromage. Personnel très moyen, polis, mais pas sympathique. Un peu d'attente. Sans charme....

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Les Armures Geneva
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
A delightful experience
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.
The room was wonderful. The location is great - in the middle of the old town. Very good recommendations on where to eat during our stay - in particular Cafe Lipps. They only minor improvement area may be a bit cooler room - but the area was in a middle of a heat wave and the AC was over taxed.
Be aware that on Sunday's it is hard to find an ATM machine as many do not have machines with open access to the public (near a special card to get into a locked room).
Thanks again to the staff for all their assistance.
Cozy hotel, great location
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).
The location was perfect, right in the old town and just down some steps down to excellent shopping and then to the river/lake and sight seeing. The staff was very helpful and friendly. I even received something I have not had in a long time-a live person making a wake-up call (though it was in French). The only negative (or positive depending on your political leanings) is that Bill Clinton et al stayed there is 1994. The place was a bit pricey but extremely nice.
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!

... for another beer. I couldn't bring myself to buy another glass of one the first one was pretty expensive. It was here that we figured out part of what we paid was a deposit on the glasses. So I guess they weren't so expensive! We were enjoying the weather so we just walked around. We didn't bring home any junk.We still have really no clue what this was. It sorta seemed like the community garage sales we have back home but better ...
... as I say that I realize this may not be technically Geneve. The other reason we decided to go out there was because we thought our place may be a bit small and I'm still a little embarrassed because we still have some work to do. Also interested to see their place because when we were looking it appeared the further you go out the more you get.
So off we went croissants and baby in stroller. After two buses ...
