Steigenberger Bellerive au Lac
Housed in a grand 1920’srnlakeside building, the interiors at this smart business hotel were designed by Tilda Theus, a renowned architect responsible for some of the most stylish hotels in Zürich.
Simply furnished, the rooms blend modern artrnand Art Deco design, including lots of Le Corbusier furniture, with a masculinerncolour scheme of deep red, forest green and gleaming wood. All are decentlyrnsized and have smart bathrooms and decent sized walk through wardrobes, thernlakeside rooms have small balconies and the junior suites are particularly attractive;rnhoused in a tower, they have large windows, clean lines and a modern feel.
Boutiquernin size and ethos if not necessarily in design, there are unexpectedly modernrntouches; all rooms are furnished according to Feng Shui principles, have memoryrnfoam mattresses and a pillow menu for optimum snoozing. Outside the rooms therernis a decent restaurant housed on a terrace overlooking the river, a classicallyrnelegant bar and a small sauna and wellness area, open 24 hours a day in casernyou feel like a post party steam. rnrnrn
