Location: Geneva, Switzerland
Address: 33, Quai des Bergues
Bond book appearance: “Goldfinger(1959)

The city’s first hotel, and still the first choice of sophisticated travellers and worlds statesmen, has been a landmark of Geneva since 1834. Now, as Four Seasons des Bergues, it blends a revitalized sense of history with comfort, relaxation and warm, genuine personal service.

007 Travelers had a table reservation in the afternoon and we ate splendid lunch at hotel’s Il Lago restaurant.
Il Lago offers the finest Northern Italian fare, accompanied by exceptional Italian, French and Swiss wines, including an exclusive selection from several boutique vineyards. You’ll relish the light and airy atmosphere, from the bright frescos adorning the walls, to the numerous windows overlooking the lively Place des Bergues.

James Bond has stayed here in Four Seasons Hotel des Bergues Geneva in the Bond book “Goldfinger” (1959).

“Bond hurried on into Geneva and pulled up at the imposing entrance of the Bergues.”

“James Bond booked in at the Hôtel des Bergues, took a bath and shower and changed his clothes. He weighed the Walther PPK in his hand and wondered whether he should take it or leave it behind.”

Ian Fleming: “Goldfinger” (1959)
