The luxurious Mandarin Oriental Geneva can be found in Old Town and it has recently undergone a fifty-million-dollar renovation. This was the first luxury hotel to be constructed in Europe after World War II and the recent renovations ensured that the Swiss traditions stayed in place.
Guests can stay in one of the 189 guest rooms or suites, which are complete with gorgeous views of the river. Everyone will appreciate the soundproofed rooms, as well as the unique designs of the French artist, Sybille de Margerie. The artist ensured that the modern curves blended seamlessly with the wooden furniture and all the artwork from the PMco Style Art Gallery in Paris. The marble filled bathrooms have heated towel bars, soaking tubs, and separate walk-in showers.
Guests will enjoy spending their mornings, afternoons, and evenings in the private garden. As this hotel is so close to many attractions, everyone can easily sightsee in between trips to nearby shopping destinations.
The on-site restaurant at the hotel is Rasoi by Vineet and the chef serves incredible and flavorful Indian cuisine. While many people sit in the dining area, a few will choose to venture out to the terrace when the weather is warmer. Those who prefer a less formal dining setting should try the French cuisine that is served at Café Calla.

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.
