What kind of thoughts comes into your mind when you think about Geneva? Of course they are about sophistication, genuine taste for living and aristocracy. Yes that’s all about it. And I was happy to know exactly this part of versatile Geneva when I stayed in one of the best hotels in the city – Hotel d’Angleterre, which is a part of a world known luxury hotels collection Red Carnation.
For me the successful holiday consists not only of the destination, but also of the hotel too. And this visit to Geneva became very special for me thanks to Hotel d’Angleterre. In my Snapchat account (ennfrancosays there as always) I have already showed you the room tour when I had just checked in but still I want to share my excitement here too! The room was very spacious for one person, with a unique design (all rooms have their own design which differs from the others in the hotel rooms), with big bed and a personal wardrobe room, about which each girl someday was dreaming! Yes, for 4 days I imagined myself Carrie Bradshaw with her own big wardrobe room 🙂 And for those who can’t live without an Internet (hey, that’s me), don’t worry, the hotel has it’s own Wi-Fi line that works absolutely correctly!
You know, that the details play very important part in the creation of the impression about anything. And Hotel d’Angleterre pays big attention exactly to the details. Here they still leave small sweet surprises on the pillows before you go to sleep, write warm personal welcome letters before you check in, and light a fragrant candle in the bathroom to make your water procedures before sleep more relaxing. It is impossible not to fall in love with such a thorough care about the convenience of the guests!
Next thing that took my breath away and fell deep inside my heart was breakfast. Yes, I just can’t live without this meal, for me it is the most important one throughout the day 😀 It is served in the hotel’s restaurant Windows, which is glad to show the guests an amazing view to the promenade and Mont Blanc. Breakfast offers a big variety of bakery, homemade marmalade, cheese, dried meat and salty fish, berries (it was my pleasure to find my favorite strawberry cause not all the hotels serves them, even in Summer); you also can order hot dishes like eggs, omelette, oatmeal, sausages with bacon and more. By the way, for those visitors who has a lactose intolerance, the restaurant has a soya milk, so you can order cappuccino or latte without worries about your stomach.
And if some of you love the ideal English traditions then you definitely need to take part in the 5 o’clock tea ceremony that is held in Windows as well. The restaurant offers a vide variety of different tea flavors, from green to black, from red to herbal and more, and if you don’t know what you want to try first – don’t worry, the tea experts will help you to make a right decision. What a tea time without the pastries! Yes, they have loads of them. I highly recommend to try out the delicious cheese cake, which special recipe was made by the owner of Red Carnation collection Beatrice Tollman – so yummy! Moreover, the cheese cake recipe can be found in the recipe book created by the owner herself which you can purchase in every hotel of the collection around the world. But, if you want something more nourishing, than you can ask for different sandwiches for tea with chicken, fish or vegetarian.
You know what, I think I have already blown the mind of my friends and family with this great hotel, that’s why I think it’s time to end my article 🙂 Enjoy the photos and I hope you will fall in love with the genuine taste of Beatrice Tollman and the whole crew of Hotel d’Angleterre. My parents already made a decision that during their next visit to Geneva they will stay in that hotel. I hope that I convinced you too.
