  • 6.0.Good

    The Brasserie in the basement as well as the Riva were likely the most depressing places I have ever been. Staff is very nice and professional , Location is good but the Hotel is overall just ok.

    Great place to stay in Annecy for a few days

    There was absolutely nothing to fault about L’Imperiale. Very comfortable, impressive hotel in a fantastic location on the lake. From easy parking, friendly efficient check/in, very comfortable room, great breakfast venue to quality Brasserie for dinner - everything was perfect. Just a fifteen minute walk through parks and along the lakefront to get to the old town.

  • 8.0.Very Good

    I had specifically booked a room and paid extra money to have a room with a view of the lake but when we got to our room we discovered that we would have hd to go out on a balcony and lean forward to have a small peek at the lake.......when asking for a room that matched my reservation I was met with a very cold employe who made me feel that I was difficult. WE ended up being all the way under the roof with a very small window to enjoy the beautiful view....:( Very disappointed! The breakfast the next morning was absolutely incredible:)

    Very nice overall, rooms felt a little 90's chic

    Friendly staff and delightful appointments. Views from the lake view rooms with balconies really are dramatic. The rooms could use a little modernizing but overall a very pleasant experience

    Love the Staff!

    I visited Annecy on a solo trip from Chamonix while my husband and adult son were climbing/summit Mont Blanc. The location was exquisite--beauty, landscape, ease of access to nature/lake/trails. The price of room was more expensive than I would normally pay but worth every penny for a single female traveling alone. Security and parking was not a concern at all. The experience here was a wonderful respite after a busy day(s) of exploring the local area, which was super busy with tourists. I loved coming back to this place--quiet and serene--with options to sink into the spa or simply enjoy my room service while gazing out the window from my room (don't like eating by myself in a restaurant). The BEST ASSET of this hotel is the the staff--their humility, civility, and kindness is beyond reproach (front desk, concierge, housekeeping, restaurant, spa). I rented a bike from the concierge to ride around Lake Annecy (awesome experience), and then cried on their shoulder when I lost//misplaced my car key and bemoaned the terrible repercussions of this dilemma. Everything worked out, as I found my key, and I drove back to Chamonix to collect my husband and son with feelings of gratitude and appreciation for the wonderful men at the Concierge...probably my best memory of this visit. Thank you!

    I didn’t like that I payed about 400$ per night for a room with lake view! And I received a small room, with a small window and no lake view. When I protested at the reception that I payed about 1,200 $, their answer was “that’s what Expedia ordered for us”. This is my last affair with Expedia. I shall tell and show the photos to my friends.

    Beautiful hotel

    This is a beautiful hotel and location. Our room was located on the side of the hotel, yet we still enjoyed a great view of the lake. The staff were all very helpful and friendly, especially the concierge services. The only reason I gave a 4 rating is because the air conditioning was not sufficient. We were there during the heat wave, and the entire hotel was warm, with with very little relief from the heat. We would have enjoyed getting in the pool to cool off, but were told that would cost another $20 euros!
