The 7 Best Hotels in Geneva

5th January 2007 // By Zahra Al-Kateb


Hotel Les Armures is a unique hotel located in the heart of Old Town Geneva, offering a breathtaking view of this historic part of the city, while only a stone’s throw from Lac Leman and the business and shopping centers.

This magnificent 17th century residence has been recently renovated to create a unique environment combining luxury and refinement with elegantly decorated rooms and suites. Les Armures also has one of the oldest restaurants in Geneva, offering traditional Swiss dishes such as raclette and fondue, as well as gourmet French cuisine. Fully air-conditioned, Restaurant Les Armures is open the whole year, seven days a week. Well-known guests include Bill Clinton, Paul McCartney, Sophia Loren and George Clooney.


Why we love it: The Hotel Les Armures exudes character as only a 17th century building can. The Prestige Junior Suite has immaculate wooden floors and beamed ceilings, while blending modern furniture with historic hearths, wrought iron and dressed stone walls. More compact in size, yet big on comfort, the hotel makes its mark with understated simplicity. Incorporating warm, neutral colors, the suite is a beautiful blend of comfort and luxury. The room comes with a double bed, a bathroom with separate shower and toilet, a mini-bar and a work station.
