Le Richemond is one of best Hotels I've ever had the pleasure of staying in! Its right in the city close to the train station, bus station, river and shops - although I will say the shops are very high end. We had a very nice welcome from Martin at reception who explained everything and we felt like we were...

I spent one night and almost two days at Le Richmond to start a family vacation in Europe. The staff was polite, professional and accommodating. In particular, the woman tending bar, Candace, was very informative, educational and professional, entertaining my wife and I while preparing drinks non-stop for a busy bar and restaurant. The location is perfect for exploring the...

Bottom line I will definitely return to this hotel. I arrived particularly late one night into Geneva and they were very gracious to collect my bags on the curb and bring them up to my room while they checked me into my room. The lobby had some funky artwork (carbon fiber themed) available for purchase. The receptionist brought me to...

Have stayed here many times over past 7 years and each one just as enjoyable. What a true small luxury hotel should be. From check in and concierge to morning papers and breakfast. Never misses a beat. Only slight nick are dated televisions. Rooms are superb though.

Stayed in Le Richemond again on this trip and overall it is a solid, service oriented, old worldly hotel in a positive way. While the decor and ambiance doesn't immediately feel like it, it is still functional and effective, and the service orientation makes it a highly valued experience in the end. Room sizes are in general good vs. some...
