The 7 Best Hotels in Geneva

5th January 2007 // By Zahra Al-Kateb



Enter a captivating world of timeless yet modern elegance. Dating back to 1872, the Hotel d’Angleterre has been beautifully restored with a passion for perfection that extends to every level of service and amenity.

With majestic views of the Jet d’Eau, Mont Blanc and surrounding mountains, the hotel is a short walk or boat ride to Geneva’s elite shopping on Rue du Rhône and the banking district. Located only 15 minutes from the airport and an hour from the finest Alpine skiing, Hotel d’Angleterre has often been regarded as one of Geneva’s finest hotels. With just 45 rooms and nestled between two imposing luxury hotels on the Quay du Mont- Blanc, the Hotel d’Angleterre stands its ground and offers the five-star grandeur and European style and comfort for which Geneva is famous.


Why we love it: The crowning glory of Hotel d’Angleterre is its legendary Presidential Suite. Celebrities, diplomats and heads of state choose it for its space, privacy, security and for the ever-attentive butler service. Others appreciate the feeling of quiet confidence that comes from living with antiques and fine furnishings. The marble and mirrored bathrooms – one adjoining the living room area – feature a large vanity with two basins, bathtubs, separate shower, hammam, heated towel racks and a TV to allow you to indulge in the most relaxing moment of your day. For the security conscious, all windows in the Presidential Suite are bullet proof.
