Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

Originally opened in 1913, the Impérial Palace is located on a peninsular in the charming grounds of the Parc Charles Bosson at the northern most point of Lake Annecy. Despite its proximity to the town of Annecy, this hotel feels miles away from the hustle and bustle with spectacular views of the lake enjoyed from the restaurant and grounds. The elegant traditional hotel has a fabulous location, situated right on the lake, only a short walking distance away from the town and boats. Enjoy breakfast on the terrace overlooking the lake, surrounded by picturesque manicured gardens. Relax in the extensive Cristal Spa facilities including plunge pool, experience showers, whirlpool, sauna and steam room (book and pay locally). The hotel has been visited by a number of famous guests including Winston Churchill and Charlie Chaplin!
