Bond book: Role of Honour (1984)
Place and location in the book: Hotel Le Richemond, Geneva, Switzerland
Actual place and location: Hotel Le Richemond, Rue Adhémar-Fabri 8-10, Geneva, Switzerland
What happens here in the book: President of United States and Soviet Union’s Head of State are keeping a summit here, and villain of the book Tamil Rahani is about to get their secret codes of nuclear weapons by flying over the hotel using airship (Le Richemond not counted as a Bond hotel, because 007 is not inside the hotel at any point)

”Below them, the lakeside of Geneva slid into view. The airship slowed, tilted forward and turned gently.

– ‘No playing around, Nick,’ Rahani called in warning. ‘Just do what you normally do. Then take her straight over Le Richemond.’ 

– ‘I’m doing what I normally do. I’m doing it by the book,’ the pilot said laconically. ‘That’s what you wanted and that is just what you’re getting.’

– ‘And what,’ Bond called back, ‘are we really doing, anyway? What is the caper that’s going to change history?'”
