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

I stayed at Novotel Geneve Centre for one night to catch an early morning flight out of the Geneva airport. I was coming from a different city via train the night before, the location was very convenient for train travelers as it’s a 5 minute walk from the train station. I travelled on business and appreciated the clean and large... More

We were promised to get our room at 230pm but was only ready 430pm. Not only that, the housekeeping was done late at 430pm despite leaving the room empty since morning. Everything else was fine though including the breakfast, parking lots, room size and location. It is near to many halal restaurant (I'm a Muslim), 2-3 minutes walk to Cornavin... More

Travelled with family over Christmas 2014. Took a gamble on this hotel seeing that it is already rated 3.8 but I am a Platinum Member with the Novotel and Accor Group so decided to give it a try. Let me premise this review with a statement that I rarely complain about anything. I accept that some experiences will be better... More
