The bedrooms were large and confortable. The hotel is near the train station ( gare) and near the bus station ( gare routière). Staff was very fiendly, Wi-fi was very good and free. The towels were very thin and small.

In the midst of winter, Novotel proved to be a warm, cozy, clean and comfortable place to stay in. I came with a large group of almost forty guests. The front desk has been very patient and accommodating amidst the influx of our delegation. The breakfast spread for the whole five days we were there was sumptuous and well-prepared. The... More

The Novotel is correctly located close to the train station and the lake. The staff is professional and very nice. We had a very spacious room and very comfortable. Loved the bathroom... at least a proper one. A negative point: Stairs to go down the reception with baggage it is not easy.

This hotel is located right at the heart of the red light district, that means prostitution everywhere, drugs dealing and an area that does not look or feel safe. The hotel is VERY worn out. My room had the filthiest carpet ever with horrible stains, the furniture was in a very poor state and the bathroom was beyond despair: mould,... More

Dear Guest, We understand that the appearance of nearby neighborhood can feel as an eyesore, luckily, as we are not located at the heart of any red light district it’s quite easy to have a nice walk by simply going towards the lake, the shopping and business area or the old town; all locations conveniently located within a 5-minute walking...

I recently had the pleasure of spending 4 days (3 nights) in the Swiss city of Geneva, and stayed at the Novotel Genéve Centre which is located within the city between the Pâquis-Temple and Mont-Blanc districts. The hotel is a 7 minute walk from Geneva's central station (Gare de Cornavin), and is also a 7 minute walk from the shore... More

Stayed here for one night in January 2015 en route to to the Swiss ski-fields. Ultimately, it served the purpose. It was clean, and a bed and shower. A lot of reviews talk about it being in a bad part of town. I actually found the location quite good - it was walking distance to the main railway station and... More

This was my first time at a Novotel hotel, and was a big disappointment. The positives: The lady who works in the dining room at breakfast is friendly and attentive The negatives: 1. Rooms are not soundproofed. I could hear yelling, late at night, on both nights of my stay. it was either my neighbor's TV or street noise 2.... More

Disappointing in comparison to other Novotels I have stayed in elsewhere. Situated in the red light district with unsavoury characters lurking outside and in the local convenience shops. Stayed between Christmas and New Year 2014 and on our first morning there was practically nothing left to eat at breakfast. Staff were abrupt to guests throughout the breakfast service and the...

Checked in again in this hotel after a few years, and I was happy to see the same high standards for convenience and everything. Just to pin a few nice features: convenient location near the central train station, friendly staff, excellent meal, free wifi, free public transportation ticket for everybody... The only annoying thing were the elevators controlled by the... More
