Report Card

The Hotel: A

Housed in a 17th century Benedictine abbey, the Hotel Abbaye de Talloires is about as atmospheric as you could want. From vine-covered walls, to the gardens leading down to the shore of the lake, it’s a charmer.

The Location: B

It loses points as a base for exploring Annecy, since it’s located in the village of Talloires, about 6 miles away. A quiet, charming locale in its own right, though, with beautiful views of the lakes and alps.

The Rooms: A/A/A (Ambiance/Cleanliness/Maintenance)

All of the rooms are unique and nicely decorated. The classic rooms are small, and basic, while the superior rooms have much more charm and are a bit larger.

The Staff: A

Friendly, smiling and generally helpful.

Hotel Report Card: Hotel Palais de l'Isle, Annecy, France

Annecy is located just south of Geneva, on the edge of the French Alps in the Haute-Savoie. Historically this region belonged to the House of Savoy, the royal family that would eventually become kings of Italy, so a certain Italian charm wafts through the Alpine air. It's a pretty town, sitting on the edge of cold, clear Lake Annecy, the old town is laced with canals, and studded with window boxes bursting with geraniums.

Staff: B

Located right on the edge of a canal, in the heart of the old town, which can be very busy and a bit noisy. The historic building masks rooms that are completely modern and, unfortunately, a bit soulless. There’s nothing wrong with them: they’re bright, clean and everything works. They have, however, managed to remove just about every trace of the historic origins of the building.
