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

Seven minutes walk to the train station (which is only a 5 minute train ride from the airport--get free ticket BEFORE exiting arrival hall) 2-3 minutes walk to tram station, and 10 minutes to lake side park--a very convenient location. Staff were pleasant, efficient and helpful. Breakfast (book in advance) worth it, complete with boiled or scrambled eggs, muesli, fruit,... More

This is a modest hotel with a silent chique tu it. Nicely refurbished in good, solid taste. We were satisfied with the room we got. They have a small dining room, where they serve (a good) breakfast. There is no restaurant, but guests get discount coupons to nearby hotel restaurants from the same chain. We spent a lovely evening having... More
