Located in the heart of Geneva’s bustling Mont-Blanc neighborhood, Le Richemond has been a renowned Genevan landmark for more than a century. Its origins harken back to 1875 when Adolphe-Rodolphe Armleder first acquired the location from a local artist named François Diday. A native of southern Germany, Armleder abandoned his family’s lucrative cooper trade to pursue a career in hospitality. The aspiring hotelier decided to establish his own lodgings in downtown Geneva, opting to utilize Diday’s beautiful building as the site for his nascent hotel. Armleder quickly set about transforming the structure into a quaint lakeside guesthouse that featured 25 beautiful accommodations. Dubbed the Riche-Mont Pension, Armleder’s small boutique hotel emerged as one of the city’s most celebrated meeting places over the next several decades. Countless visitors from across the world had ventured to the hotel’s doorstep by the beginning of the twentieth century.

Today, Le Richemond boasts 109 total accommodations, including 87 guestrooms and 22 luxurious suites. Each room is elegant and spacious, with carefully installed design aesthetics. Guests can indulge in the L'Occitane toiletries and enjoy the stunning views from the windows and balconies, while exploring the surrounding area with ease.

Le Richemond, a member of Historic Hotels Worldwide since 2019, dates back to 1875.

Fun FactLe Richemond has been the setting for a variety of events throughout its illustrious history. In the 1950s, a rich businessman hosted his birthday party at the hotel and invited a variety of guests – including an elephant, which walked through the hotel for the occasion.
