During its history of nearly four centuries, the Hôtel de l'Ecu de Genève, which no longer exists, had four different locations. Originally established on the side of the rue de la Rivière (the current rue de la Confédération), it was moved for the first time to the south front of the rue du Rhône, then occupied a house on the banks of the river and, finally, the plot neighbour, located near the Place du Rhône. The first mention of the hotel dates back to 1560. Ref: The monuments of art and history of the canton of Geneva. Volume I - Geneva on the water.
