Stayed at the Kipling for 7 nights in July. Had a room on the top floor that had a little balcony/terrace - an unexpected and welcome bonus. Room was clean and the hotel had a nice look and feel. The front desk staff in particular were exceptionally friendly throughout my stay. Hotel is less than a minute to the tram... More

A superb hotel. Returned this year and was upgraded to an executive room. Decor, fixtures and fittings are classy, fabulous. Relaxed yet professional with superb service. Great bedroom facilities. Cannot speak highly enough of this place, I love it!

I love staying at the Kipling Hotel when i am in Geneva Switzerland. It's in a wonderful location, close to the train to get around, has very comfortable rooms and the staff is most helpful with any information, problems and assistance you might need. I have been staying there for years and just keep coming back!

I have stayed in Geneva regularly over the last few months and have stayed in many of the hotels in the centre. The Kipling is always my first choice if it has availability. The rooms are a reasonable size, comfortable and well decorated, the hotel itself is quiet, the rooms can be made dark at night and the beds are... More

The room was a nice size and the hotel is very attractive. We chose it because we were only staying one night and it was close to the train station but I found it's location somewhat inconvenient to the center of Geneva where we spent all of our time. I didn't feel unsafe in the neighborhood but we didn't feel... More

We started our Switzerland vacation with 2 nights with the Kipling Manotel at the beginning of our trip. The location is super convenient from the Cornavin train station, within a short walking distance even with heavy luggage. Our flight arrived very early in the morning and our room was not available yet. The Front Desk staff Jeremy was very helpful.... More

We stayed at the Kipling for 2 nights at the beginning of our visit to Switzerland, and one night on the return. The hotel is conveniently close to the main railway station (close enough to walk with wheeled 20kg suitcases) and within walking distance of the main lake front area. The staff are all friendly and helpful, and speak English... More

Dear sardawg, I was sorry to read your disapointement with reference to the location of the hotel. Geneva is made up of dozens of small districts, very different from each others. The one you mentioned is called "Les Pâquis". Even if this district is popular, most of Geneva's palaces are located nearby. Nevertheless, I'm very disappointed that your experience was... More

Stayed here for a night in July 2014 and loved it. It was a beautiful, well-appointed room. I was able to check in a bit early, which helped after a long flight, and the chocolate and tea made the room nice. Check in staff were great. It's about a five minute walk from the central train station. I had read... More
