Le Richemond

Le Richemond is closed for extensive renovation and refurbishment and will re-open in September 2007. Recently acquired by Rocco Forte Hotels, this five star hotel has held its prime position facing the famous Brunswick Gardens and overlooking the Alps, Lake Geneva, and the Old Town Cathedral for over 130 years. Just 6km from Geneva Airport and with the business and shopping districts of this sophisticated city only walking distance away, it is ideally located for business meetings and conferences. Three meeting rooms, all with natural daylight and the ballroom, which accommodate parties of 10 to 200, make it the ideal choice for events of all kinds.
The hotel provides the public with little information about its history. Our team researches the hotel's past, from the very beginning, verifying its exact opening date and providing an overview of its history up to the present day.?If you have any useful information and would like to share it, please send it to [email protected]?Thank you This is what we know so far (attention: unverified history!): A gentleman by the name of Adolphe-Rodolphe Armleder rented the pension Le Riche-Mont in 1875 from the late Geneva painter Francoise Diday.
