The hotel Kipling is part of the Manotel group who has several hotels close together here in Geneva. The service at the front desk was perfect and we were able to check in early for the weekend. We had a king size bed which is atypical for Europe! Though there was not a real bar in the hotel we were... More

This was a nice little hotel within walking distance of the train station and Lake Geneva. Neighborhood is a little sketchy (not a pleasant view from the room) but the hotel is neat and clean and the staff friendly and attentive. Dany even went so far as to order delivery of dinner for us from Spice of India.

This hotel is located near the train station in a middle class area of Geneva, but not far from the lake and old town. Maybe 15 minutes away from the historic center. It's very clean, quiet and has private garage. The staff is very friendly and polite. The breakfast is simple but of excellent quality. Will stay again when in... More

I stayed here because the hotel I normally stay at was booked. It was a nice surprise. It's a neat, clean, friendly little hotel with a nice breakfast (continental plus hot scrambled or boiled eggs, sausages, beans) included. The room was nicely appointed with all the regular amenities. My room had a balcony which was large and bright. The light... More

Near the railway but far enough to be in a better area. Rooms nice, classical, seemed soundproof. I liked the decor and this was a pleasant home for a brief time in Geneva. Multilingual staff, good service. Would definitely stay again.

Location is just one stop from the main train station, pretty walkable even with rolling luggage. Very friendly and helpful staff at the front desk. Room was very small and dark, even by European standards, AC was barely functioning. generally, the room was clean with the exception of "mistery long hairs" on the tile wall of the bathroom. The kitchenette... More

A very nice hotel with excellent staff, all of whom spoke brilliant english, but were willing to listen to you try out bad french if you wanted. The room was clean, comfortable and quiet, even across from the elevator. As others have mentioned it is very accessible from the central train station, as well as anything else you might wish....

My husband and I stayed at the Kipling for two nights. Because we arrived by train with a LOT of luggage I thought it would be best (being our first visit to Geneva) to take a taxi. Big mistake! It cost us over 30 Swiss francs, and it's only four blocks away as the crow flies. However, the cab driver... More

I stayed for the first time at the Kipling for 2 nights at the end of March 2015. I got room 509 which is probably their smallest one but it was so nicely appointed that I did not mind. It had a terrace. My colleague got room 502 which was really large. Both rooms were located on the quiet side... More

Nice hotel. V. Clean. Staff helpful. Good value for money in Geneva. Close to transport links. Only issue would be it is probably in what could be described as the not so nice end of town. Looked a bit rough but we had no issues. It was close to what can only be described as the red light district which... More
