Positioned on the shore of Lake Geneva, with exceptional views of the city’s famous Jet d’Eau and Mont Blanc as a timeless backdrop, Hotel de la Paix has defined luxury in Geneva since its inception in 1865. It has also stood at the crossroads of history, inspiring many memorable gatherings including the International Congress of Peace, and has welcomed high-profile guests from across the globe, such as the Monaco Royal Family and notable American actor Orson Welles.
The Hotel de la Paix was given this name for a reason. His story begins in the XIX century, in a very complex but fascinating historical moment: citizens from different countries were fighting for their independence and war was in the air. This hotel hosted many crucial meetings, including the International Congress of Peace that re-shaped the destiny of Europe.
