This hotel is beautiful and very well appointed. Its decor is set in the period around the time Rudyard Kipling was in India. The staff were wonderful and very helpful. We were given free transport tickets to use whilst we were in Geneva. We will be back.

We chose Hotel Kipling as it was close to the railway station, but not too close (10 minutes' walk). It's in a small side street of Rue de Lausanne. We had read that the area is slightly seedy, but we felt completely secure even when walking back at midnight. The hotel is quite small and decorated in an English colonial... More

We stayed here for 2 nights as part of our trip to Monte Blonc and were impressed by the quality of the rooms and amenities. The hotel staff were great and friendly. The room is modern and on the small side. The hotel is within walking distance of the train station and the staff at the train station were only... More

My wife and I have just enjoyed a 2 night stay in the very pleasant, comfortable and welcoming Hotel Kipling. The staff at the reception were always very helpful and perfectly fluent in English. The breakfasts, although slightly expensive at 18 CHF pp, we're tasty and there was plenty of choice. The rooms were very well decorated and homely and... More

This hotel was really nice. It was clean, great support staff, strong wifi, and comfortable beds. The location is a 5 minute walk from the train station, but a 15 minute walk to the lake or old town. If you want to be in the center of the tourist spot, this isn't it. However, it is one of the better... More

The Hotel is quite good indeed. It is near the train station in Geneve and close to all amenities needed (e.g. car rental, supermarket, plenty of food options, etc). The staff is extremely helpful and caters your needs (e.g. giving directions/maps) and promptly handles your requests aiming to make you feel comfortable there. Though not terribly cheap it was a...

We researched where to stay for one night in Geneva, and the decision to stay at the Kipling was based on reviews and price. Hotel prices in this town are very high. So, in comparison we believe the Kipling to be a good value hotel, despite it's small rooms and common areas. The front desk service was very friendly and... More
