20 rue de l'Arquebuse, Geneva, 1204, Switzerland
This pretty art nouveau–style hotel has undergone a renovation and expansion that embraces its 19th-century originality but gives it a contemporary edge. An airy, glass-topped atrium now joins the original hotel with a neighboring building in an enlargement that adds 19 rooms, including two apartment-style suites with a private patio. The hotel is owned by the same family as the Eastwest, and good food is a priority—popular chef Alban Mestre's excellent French cuisine has Mediterranean accents. With a sidewalk terrace, bar, library, and small gym with a hammam, this tasteful and friendly hotel has a homey atmosphere and state-of-the-art advantages.
