Grand Kempinski Hotel - 19 Quai Du Mont Blanc Geneva

The Grand Hotel Kempinski Geneva is a 5 star 423 room hotel which has recently been refurbished to give it a new look. The renovation, which has been designed by Tjca Architects aims to dissolve the boundaries between the building and the lake. From both restaurants, the bar and the lounge, an exceptional view over the lake and Jet d’Eau, with the Alps as a backdrop, meets the eyes. With décor, which is decidedly modern yet warm and cozy, the hotel offers a variety of atmospheres.
