Tastefully furnished in an oriental style, the hotel is ideally located about 10 minutes walk from the train station and only a short tram ride or slightly longer walk to the lake, shops and other key tourist areas. Getting a free local transport pass for the days were there was very helpful. The room was clean and spacious. A useful... More

I'm a travel blogger so I always aim to pick the best of the best everywhere I go but without busting my budget. I stayed one night at the Kipling and it was a great experience. The location is very central (about a 5 minute walk from the train station and 15 min walk to the famous Jet d'Eau fountain)... More

A lovely clean hotel in a good location with parking. We stayed for only one night on our way back to London and had a gorgeous triple room. 8 year old was delighted with bathrobes, slippers, mini kitchen and pillow chocolates and actually, she's right to be because these are the touches that make a place. The staff were excellent... More

Our family recently stayed at the Kipling Manotel in central Geneva. We were within comfortable walking distance of the main train station (even with luggage), easy walking distance from Lake Geneva and all of the wonderful restaurants. Reasonable price and pleasant decor. We would recommend this hotel to anyone interested in visiting beautiful Geneva.

I stayed in an Executive Triple Room which was basically a king bed and a sofa bed (queen). It also had a kitchenette with fridge, microwave, dishes and silverware (all in a closet-like cubby) which allowed us to keep groceries (there is a Lidl and Coop quite close by) and save money. The room was comfortable and furnished nicely and... More

Almost everything is within walking distance of the Kipling - old town, the lake, main train station and many of the shopping streets, not to mentions too many restaurants, cafes & pubs. Hotel is quite, very clean & neat with friendly staff. Room rates include a public transport pass which also covers the mainline train to the airport. My room... More

Very nice hotel close to railway station. Reasonably priced restaurants also a short walk as is Lake Geneva Accommodation is very good and of a high standard. Staff were excellent Did not have breakfast so can't comment on that. This part of Geneva is close to the red light district but that's easy to avoid when walking anywhere of interest

We stayed for 2 nights the rooms are small but have all the necessary items for a nice stay. Very close to the train station and the lake area of central Geneva. Lots of restaurants and pubs around. The area around the hotel is a little shady not that we were hassled when we came walking at 11.30pm but better... More
