                  It was comfortable, good quality of spa and restaurants.

                  Service personnel disrespected us. We have been angry at them. Also, you took 500 franks for nothing. Someone noised in next door but we must pay. We'll never stay in your hotel again.

                  Luxury hotel - what do I have to say? Certainly, there are smal inconveniencies - a smudge over there, dirty ashtray on the balcony, sometimes strange kind people in the lobby - but all is very good generally.

                  Friendly staff...

                  No espresso machine in rooms, for an early cup of coffee.. Breakfast way too expensive... Upon arrival, no fruit greeting basket, not even water...very cheap on their part... Room cleaning was much too hasty...missing spots here and there, not thorough...

                  The elegance and charm of the ambient was very nice and professional.

                  The best location in Geneve

                  Unbelievable rip-off and poor services of staffs. Hotel facilities and value for the money is so terrible that I would rather not to visit Geneve again.

                  The Grand Hotel Terasse (2nd floor) for breakfast & for a relaxing coffee with a view of the lake & the city are a must!

                  The size & structure of the room were inconvienient!
