We stayed two nights. Rooms are cozy. The whole hotel's theme is Rudyard Kipling so it has a colonial feel, especially in terms of decor. Lots of photographs and objects d'art around the place. Exceptionally clean. A short walk to the central train station, lake, and other major attractions.

Firstly trying to find the place by car is a nightmare with all the one way streets, get driving instructions before arriving. The hotel itself is very nice, small but clean. The room was a little small with no outlook only of a scruffy building opposite but it was ok for one night. Good breakfast in the morning. The area... More

We only stayed one night. We were satisfied. The location is very convenient for the train station and for walking down to the lakefront and back. The neighbourhood just around the hotel (as close to the station) is not particularly attractive but not really bad either. The hotel feel quite compact but our triple room was comfortable and had enough... More

This was a lovely hotel. The room and public areas were decorated in a very modern, but very warm way. The staff were very helpful. The car park was only small, but we managed to park and it was underground so secure. Good location, only a short walk to the lake.

Arrived in Geneva on Monday, July 21st for business meetings. Hotel Kipling was recommended by local contacts. It's an excellent, clean, modern, convenient location. Lobby is modern, clean and intimate. Check-in was efficient and front-desk workers fluent in many languages. They had my reservation information already printed and ready for me. Room was a superior, double bed on 2nd floor... More

The hotel is well situated between the train station and lake front and has plenty of eating places within easy reach. The trams and buses run along the end of the street (about 20 metres away) if you don't want to walk. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was very clean, and all areas I went to...

Was advised to stay at Kipling by locals - so did not really search for any alternative while overall the place was nice. Booked 2 nights within a business week with a one day break (had to travel outside Geneva) and the price difference between Tue and Thu was almost 30pc - cant really understand why.
