Completely transformed by a 50 million dollar renovation, the Mandarin Oriental Geneva is a 189-room luxury hotel in Old Town. The first luxury hotel built in Europe after World War II, combines Swiss tradition, stylish design, and unbeatable service, with river views, private garden and a convenient location for shopping, sightseeing and business.
The soundproofed rooms and suites feature the unique styling of French artist Sybille de Margerie. There’s calculated symmetry with modern curves, polished wood furniture, and artwork from the PMco Style art gallery in Paris.

Highlights & Reviews
- A 15-minute drive from the airport, the hotel borders the banks of the River Rhône, with a footbridge a few steps away leading into the Old Town and the elegant designer boutiques which line the streets of Geneva. From the rooms, views give onto the snow capped mountains beyond the city.
- Originally built in 1950 as the Hotel du Rhône, in early modernist, Art Deco style, the public areas were completely renovated in 2008 by New York-based designer Adam D Tihany using materials of cherry wood, silk, mirrors and bold colours, creating an opulent feel. Bedrooms and suites were refurbished in 2013 by Sybille de Margerie with her trademark warmth and an emphasis on comfortable luxury.
- Rooms and suites feel effortlessly elegant, with warm earth tones, soft wool carpets and spacious Greek marble bathrooms, with walk-in rain showers and tubs. On the sixth floor, the Mandarin rooms come in palettes of fuschia and silver, with tones of gold, and have two separate Italian marble bathrooms with Shanghai Tang amenities. The spacious Junior Terrace Suites and the ultra-luxurious Mandarin, Oriental and Presidential Suites are designed by Buz Design from Hong Kong, and all have terraces overlooking the river.
- The hotel’s signature restaurant is ‘Rasoi by Vineet’. Its vivid red and purple décor is a background for sensational Indian dishes from Chef Vineet Bhatia, such as gun-powder scallops or grilled curry leaf-ginger lobster, with spiced lobster jus and sour cocoa dusting. In summer it spills out on to a street-side terrace. The less formal Café Calla serves modern French and health-conscious cuisine, with an emphasis on regional products. Cocktails at the bar should not be missed, particularly the Mandaritini – vodka, fresh raspberries, mint leaves and cranberry juice.
