Recommendations for you
Customers who viewed Le Richemond also booked these hotels.
Its position at the heart of the Geneva business district, north of the River Rhone, so close to Lake Geneva (Lac Leman) and overlooking Brunswick Garden, makes Le Richemond a perfect location for exploring all that Geneva has to offer. From the hotel you can see the impressive Jet d'Eau (the world's tallest fountain), the Jura Mountains and the magnificent Alpes.
Just over the Rhone is the heart of Geneva, and all the main attractions of this international city are there to be discovered including the imposing, partially Romanesque, partially Gothic Cathedral de Saint-Pierre where John Calvin once preached. The south bank is also home to most of the city's 40 museums and the vieille ville, the old part of town, with the pedestrian-only Grand Rue running through it. Here too is the Rue du Rhone, home of some of Europe's most exclusive shops.
The train station is close by, and the international airport is only six kilometres away.
