    Our opinion

    "L'Impérial Palace is a grand hotel in a stunning location close to the pretty old town of Annecy, an ideal base for exploring the region."

    Hotel description

    L'Impérial Palace is an imposing and grand building only a few minutes’ drive from the centre of old Annecy. It is impressively situated on its own peninsula, surrounded on three sides by the sparkling clear waters of Lake Annecy. Although the Belle Époque exterior of L'Impérial Palace gives the immediate impression of a typical “grand” hotel, classic and traditional, the interior is firmly contemporary in design. The hotel does receive business conferences, so naturally standards are high and service is excellent. The 99 rooms are all air-conditioned and offer a complimentary soft drinks mini-bar. The hotel restaurant “La Voile” serves classical French cuisine and in the summer months guests can dine outside on the hotel terrace with views over the lake. Alternatively, you can have enjoy Asian culinary delights and traditional light meals in the cosy atmosphere of "La Rotonde Autour du Monde" in the Casino.As well as having its own casino and health and beauty centre, there are many amenities nearby, including two golf courses, a variety of water sports and of course the romantic town of Annecy to explore. L' Impérial Palace offers comfortable accommodation, right on the lake shore. It is ideal for a short break or as part of a touring holiday.
