I left another property at midnight to find this air conditioned oasis. Cool rooms, a bowl of ice, and a wonderful staff. The room was very large, clean and a welcome respite after a very hot evening. I understand the other reviews about the neighborhood concerns, but I had two small children out on a Friday night, not bothered at... More

Not really what you espect for a 4 star hotel in this class. Bathroom was old and need a really touch up and to be cleaned. The beds are not very comfortable. There is a TV but so small you need glasses. I have been to better Novotels to better prices. The interieur of the hotel is not particulary warm... More

I am just so disgusted by this proerty and am relieved to check out now.... I chose this hotel over others in Geneva because I trusted Novotel & I expected a decent room and flawless behaviour by staff, but I was disappointed Check in - was checked in by Elodie - knew little beyond smiling endlessly but was incredibly rude...

Stayed on a stopover with family if 4. Very charming staff on check-in and on room service. Clean and good rooms with good aircon. Beds very comfortable. Hotel is on halfway between the Lake (turn right - 5mins walk) and the station (turn left) which is convenient but it does also then suffer as its on the border with a... More

It's obvious this hotel is in the red light district but other than that a great location for exploring Geneva. Really enjoyed the stay in a basic room. We visited the steam room every night which was a great option considering there isn't a pool onsite. The only complaint I would have is that the pillows are terrible. We requested... More

The hotel was clean and reception very friendly. We arrived and departed when the desk wasn't busy so had no issues with waiting for either. Breakfast was OK, providing a reasonable range of hot and cold food. A couple of points that may be useful. There's a garage next to the hotel that you get discounted parking for (30CH/night), but...

We stayed there on two occasions, 2 nights each time. The first night was a nightmare. We were very tired and were looking to a good night's sleep. However in the middle of the night, loud noises of a big object banging on the balcony to our room woke us up. We tried to look outside but could not understand... More

Geneva is very expensive. So is this Novotel absolutely overpriced. Needs renovation. And air conditioning can't be fully turned off. It's located in the red light district, so you can't walk around in the evening and it's noisy. WiFi works. Breakfast is also expensive. Can't recommend
