Fodor's Review

Steps away from the lake, in the heart of Old Annecy, this delightful small hotel directly overlooks one of the most enchanting corners of town (if not Europe). Guest rooms have views of the "prow" of magical Palais de l'Isle, and, without destroying the building's ancient feel, they have a cheery, contemporary look thanks to their Philippe Starck furnishings. Though the area is pedestrian-only, you can drive up to unload luggage by buzzing the intercom and requesting

that they lower the bollard at the entrance to Rue Perrière.

Don't Stay Here!

We had reservations for a "street front" room for our family. When we could not find the hotel, we called and were immediately hung up upon when we asked if they spoke English. Our call back went into neverland for 10 minutes. When we arrived we were greeted by the front desk clerk who informed us he was sick and had no time for questions. We checked into the room which was a fire hazard on the fifth floor, reachable only by a spiral staircase.

When we went back to the desk to enquire about our reservation, we were promptly insulted, called "imperialists" and escorted to the door. I have travelled Europe extensively and have never been treated with such disrespect. Fortunately we found a great B&B by the Musee' that I would highly recommend. Adieu Bruno, please seek anger management.

Wonderful Location

Our room was extremely clean and modern, with platform bed and good television coverage. Location couldn't be better -- right in the hub of the old town. A little noisy at night because of the acoustics off the brick walls of the town.

Perfect location, but without any "charme"

Right in the center of Annecy, location could not be better. No own parking, but nearby parking garage. Modern, but very tiny rooms and bathroom. Historical building which has very little left of the "charme" of history, it has all been renovated away. Very simple breakfast buffet. Reception desk is mostly unoccupied. Soundproof windows (needed, due to central location!), but no AC. Room became a sauna (in August).
