You can't fault the sense of history at Les Armures: this boutique hotel is tucked away in an old town alley opposite a set of cannon and in the shadow of the grim Calvanist cathedral. The four buildings date from the seventeenth century on thirteenth century foundations, and the cellars were once used to store the Bishop of Geneva's wines. After its conversion into a hotel in the 1970s, many origin details were preserved, including decorative ceilings, plasterwork and chimney places. Medieval tapestries hang in the lobby. All this makes it very different from the grand nineteenth-century lakefront hotels that usually cater to five-star visitors. Count instead on rambling corridors, odd nooks and crannies, exposed beams and a certain eccentric charm. Right in the heart of the old town, Les Armures is near many of Geneva's museums and just a brief walk down to the commercial centre and lakefront.
een fantastische kamer; een fantasische service en centraal maar toch erg rustig gelegen. Wat kan een mens zich meer wensen.
Goede locatie, aardige mensen, wij kregen een upgrade. Kamer best confortabel. Enorm duur, prijs/kwaliteit verhouding niet geweldig.
