Visited the Novotel for a family weekend in geneva. Was a bit concerned about the location but it turned out to be ideal. An easy five minute walk from the main train station and five minutes the other way to the Lake. Don't be out off by the reviews referring to the red light district. It didn't cause us a... More

The hotel is situated well between the train station and the city centre, all at walking distance and with several restaurant very close by. The hotel offers a good breakfast, and the rooms are convenient. The hotel does not have a unique atmosphere, but it guarantees a comfortable stay.

Very good hotel, clean, helpful and friendly staff, rooms are not so big but they have what you need. Summarizing the hotel has everything, including a very good breakfast, and they even give you a free transport card for the days you stay. Not located in a luxury spot is a great choice considering how safe is Geneva. Everything is... More

1. The lobby is about 10 steps below ground level. Guests have to carry their luggage downs a set of stairs, there is no doorman or bellboy to help. There is a small home-made lift hidden in a corner, you won't be able to see it until you already walked downstairs. The lift has to been operated by hotel staff,... More

I stayed in this hotel during my week time in Switzerland. The people are a bit cold but overall it is a nice hotel. Food is good, rooms are spacious. However, I think the price is a bit not adjusted to the reality as there are more economic similar accommodation options.
