Cons

  • Some rooms are small
  • Some rooms have no views

Bottom Line

Hotel d’Angleterre is one of Geneva’s grand dames, popular among diplomats and well-heeled travelers for its gorgeous views and opulent accommodations. It offers a convenient location right on the shores of Lake Geneva -- near shopping, dining, attractions and public transportation -- and high-end amenities such as in-room spa treatments, an acclaimed bar, and a wonderful restaurant with superb views and a popular afternoon tea service. Its 39 luxurious rooms and nine suites all feature pillow menus, iPod docks, interactive TVs, free Wi-Fi, and original artworks. But while some offer stunning lake and mountain views, others face the building next door and are a little small.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

Right on the shores of Lake Geneva, within walking distance of shops and restaurants

Hotel d’Angleterre is located on the Right Bank, overlooking Lake Geneva and the famous Jet d'Eau, the tallest fountain in the world. The hotel is within walking distance of the major train station, as well as numerous stores and restaurants. The heart of the Old Town is also within walking distance, but there’s also public transportation nearby for those who prefer that option.

The Quai du Mont-Blanc is an elegant avenue located along the lake shore. There’s a wide array of cafes and stores here, and the tree-lined eastern sidewalk of the street is perfect for enjoying the views of Lake Geneva and the mountains while strolling around.

Geneva is a picturesque city, divided into two banks by Lake Geneva, and surrounded by mountains. During the winters, visitors and locals head to the mountains to ski; ski resorts such as Verbier and Crans-Montana are conveniently only about an hour from the heart of the city. And in the summertime, the lake -- and nearby beaches -- become popular spots for swimming. But all year long, tourists can enjoy the city's cafe culture (reminiscent of Paris), beautiful gardens, specialty shops (the city is known for its gorgeous jewelry and watches), fabulous restaurants, and many sights.

  • 14-minute drive to the Geneva International Airport
  • On the banks of Lake Geneva with a view Jet d'Eau, the tallest fountain in the world
  • 4-minute walk to Bains des Paquis beach
  • 10-minute walk to the Cornavin train station
  • 10-minute walk to shopping along Rue du Rhone
  • 10-minute walk to Place de Saint-Gervais, where jewelry and watch shops are concentrated
  • 11-minute walk to the Jardin Anglais, with the famous flower clock
  • 15-minute walk to the La Perle du Lac park
  • 15-minute walk to the St. Pierre Cathedral
  • 17-minute walk to the History of Science Museum
  • 25-minute walk to the Botanical Gardens, home to a small zoo
  • 26-minute walk or 5-minute drive to Paquis-Nations, home to numerous international organizations
  • About a 2-hour drive to Gstaad and Verbier ski resorts
