Definitely do not bring a car and try to park at this hotel. They seemingly have a parking lot which is a five minute drive away in a very busy city which we spent over 30 minutes trying to find and never could. We ended up locating another public lot not that far away it was a lot easier. The... More

This was a business meeting with ~ 20 people. Very good catered meal (seafood in particular, a tenderloin was so so). Breakfast buffet was superb. Very helpful front desk/concierge. Has that dark wood, tiny elevator, old artwork that is makes you feel very comfortable. Intimate feel. Rooms were quite comfortable. About 20 sec walk from Lake Geneva.

I stayed in Geneva for a business trip, great location, great breakfast, room was clean and big, good and stable wifi and super friendly staff at the reception!!! Also appreciated was the basket with apples at the reception, "an apple a day keeps the doctor away"

A classic but crisp clean city hotel with good service and interesting live 'harp' breakfast. Beds are very nice and stayed on 2nd floor on both stays in past 2 months. The junior suites are very spacious and comfortable. At walking distance from the central train station, beware that parking is difficult + pricey for overnight stays. It's conveniently close...

We went to the hotel for valentines weekend and were so impressed with the place. Super friendly staff and a beautiful room made for a brilliant stay. The location is so central that we could get anywhere we wanted to in Geneva on foot, there's so much to see and explore and the hotel is right in the centre of... More

Stayed here for one night for a business trip. The staff were welcoming and generally very helpful when we requested help for organizing the room plans for our meeting. The bed was very comfortable and the room in general was spacious, warm and very nice! I would have liked to have stayed here for a few more nights. The only... More

We stayed here for 2 nights recently after a work trip in Switzerland. The location is perfect and the hotel a quirky and fun but stylish place to stay. The hotel bar is a delight most evenings for cocktails or just a quiet drink. Staff are excellent and make the experience. It's small and friendly but big and anonymous enough... More

For a 4 star hotel Bristol offers one of the better rooms on the Cornavin side of Geneva. I found the rooms to be simple, functional and using much better fittings compared to most other 3-4 star hotels found on the Cornavin side. The room was also of a good size and Bristol offered Molton Brown toiletries which offered a... More

The hotel is located just a few meters from the lake and within a short walking distance from the old city. You cannot ask for a better location. Rooms are of an acceptable size and are very well finished and fitted. Had breakfast in the restaurant which was good but expensive (but this is Geneva!). Service is cordial and prompt

It's just across the road from the Four Seasons Residences and a short 5 minute walk across the bridge to the old town. Great location. The service was good. Rooms a little tired but well equipped. We fortunately had a room that faced the interior courtyard so it's much quieter. The airport is a 20 minute taxi cab ride. There... More
