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

Switzerland is expensive and its five star hotels are very expensive. The Bristol is a four star hotel with lower prices but it competes very well in nearly all areas. I spent two nights in a deluxe room on the second floor which was large and recently refurbished. The bed was big and very comfortable. The other furnishings were new... More

Nice hotel that is located near lake Geneva and numerous shops and restaurants. The rooms are spacious and clean. The lobby bar is very nice and the restaurant is a 1 Micheline Star.

We stayed here a couple of months ago and loved it! It was more than we would normally spend on a hotel but we weren't disappointed. The hotel was easy to find and right by the lake, surrounded by a great choice of restaurants. The room felt luxurious and had lovely Molton Brown toiletries. It also had a huge range... More
