“Rooms and suites, many with balconies, are a riot of brocade and toile de jouy in soft blues and greens, with huge marble bathrooms. The cosy bar has the ‘see and be seen’ Geneva terrace, much frequented in the summer, while the elegant restaurant dishes up beautifully cooked northern Italian food. ”

“In the heart of Geneva, the city’s first hotel – and still the first choice of sophisticated travellers and world statesmen – has been a landmark on Lake Geneva since 1834. Now, as Four Seasons Hotel des Bergues, it blends a revitalised sense of history with today’s essentials for work and relaxation – wrapped in warm, thoughtful, personal service.
Guided by renowned interior designer Pierre-Yves Rochon, the 103 guest rooms and suites are richly elegant, combining the Hotel’s classical elegance and style with the latest in technology. With enchanting views of the lake, the Old Town or the courtyard, all accommodations are bright and airy, decorated with rich blue and green fabrics, light woods and Louis Philippe-style furnishings. Nearly a quarter of the rooms are spacious suites – most with step-out balconies and views of Lake Geneva.”
