I booked this hotel because, for the "rating" and the location, the price seemed surprisingly reasonable for the one night we needed. The reality of the situation bore this out - the room was large and well appointed with a particularly large bedroom, the service was good with the extra travel cot we requested for our baby provided promptly, and...

The photos look much better than the reality. The rooms are relatively large but not as large as the photos suggest. Our room was smelling massively of cleaning material. We had to leave the window open day and night otherwise we would have gotten massive headaches. We asked for a different room but that one was smelling the same. They... More

My wife and I stayed for the 2nd time in Hotel Bristol for a week end, from 16th to 17th of August 2014. Notwithstanding the fact that it was high season, we were lucky enough to be upgraded to the Junior Suite number 625, although we requested initially a garden side room. Well, you should never refuse an upgrade, so... More

I had a fantastic stay in the Bristol in July 2014. the hotel is excellently positioned right in the centre with everything in walking distance. There is a tram stop about 500m away, so almost everything is very easily accessible. The only downside to the location is that one cannot stop a car on the main road outside the hotel,... More

I booked the Hotel Bristol based on great trip advisor reviews and was not disappointed! The hotel is very conveniently located to the metro station, bus stops, the lake, the flower clock, and old town shopping & restaurants. The hotel provided a bus/metro pass that was very handy to travel around the city. The hotel has a great old world... More

The hotel Bristol is my regular place of stay for business as I travel to Geneva at least once a month. When the room rate is good, I would say its a great place to stay. It's clean, comfortable and basic amenities. Location is great since it's by the lake for a run or walk after work meetings. Breakfast is... More

Unless it had been directly on the water, the location could not have been better. It was about a 30 euro taxi ride from the airport, and 10 euro taxi ride to the train station. It was very convenient to walk out the front door and down the street to the lake and all the touristy things to be found... More
