One night stay on Easter weekend 2014. some critique: - Balcony would have been nice, but was not usable due to bug/mosquitos plague. This was not a one day phenomena as the curtains had dead bugs in it from earlier. Really too bad as the view was nice in the 7th floor over the roofs of Geneva. - Not a... More

STAY AWAY from this hotel. I can't believe that they still have four stars, this is scandalous. My room was on the first floor and here is what I experienced: - located in the red light districts: prostitutes and drug sellers in the street of the hotel - SMELL: rooms have no possibilities to open the windows. Therefore the air... More

Though usually a rather quiet place it may, occasionally, happen that the obstreperousness of the street proves testing and we apologize for the inconvenience. Regarding the nearby neighborhood, we are aware of its potentially unsettling aspect, though your security and safety are managed both... More

I have stayed at the Novotel in Geneva at least three times and I will say for the price it isn't much. Small bar with very uncomfortable foot stools to sit on, very small rooms and no view except the city building across the street. About a 10-12 minute walk to the train station and yes it's next to the... More

We stayed here for one night after a skiing holiday in the 4 Vallées. When we arrived at the hotel the did not have space in the luggage room for our skis and boots, so we had to carry them to the room. It was obviously a busy day at the hotel. We were two adults and two children and... More

We stayed in geneva for 2 nights the hotel is very close to the train station and the lake. As others have mentioned it next to the red light area. Area looks a little shaky at night but they do not bother you as you pass by. You can walk a lane further and reach the hotel from the other... More

Recently stayed for 7 nights on business. Clean hotel with friendly staff. As others have noted, located near the "Red Light" district- however, was never bothered by anyone as I passed through the neighborhood. Hotel is a short walk to the lake, train station ,etc. Two suggestions: provide more daily variety to the breakfast buffet (was the exact same choices... More

Staying in Geneva for just one night, I wanted an easy in and out. The location is convenient, just two blocks from the train station. Note that the neighborhood can be a bit sketchy [but it's hard to avoid that in Geneva if you want the convenience of the train station - which is just a five minute train ride... More

Stayed for a few nights on work trip - by upgrading was in 6th floor with early check in, quiet and unpretentious, gym very basic but works and a small spa. Great location with all of transport and eating options plus lake nearby. All GVA Hotels are overpriced but this one I would go back to
