“New modern hotel with easy access to public transports”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2014

The Hotel Lake Geneva is located on the road along Lake Geneva which leads from Geneva to Lausanne. The hotel opened in March 2014. The rooms are soberly furnished with a seating area by the window. The beds are comfortable, however it is noted it consist of split mattresses, leaving a gap in the middle of the bed. The bathroom has a bathtub instead of a shower cabin. Facilities include flat-screen TV and a safe. The Internet connection is free of charge. Two small bottles of shower gel and shampoo are the only extras. Some standard equipment are cruelly lacking, such as a kettle for coffee or tea making, a refrigerator, the usual bottle of water or a sponge for shoeshine. Rooms overlooking the Lake give a beautiful view. By fine weather the Mont Blanc can be seen in the distance.
Booking portals offer only overnights without breakfast. The price for the meagre display of breakfast items is grossly overcharged, standing at CHF 19.-. There are fresh Danish pastries, coffee and juice, alternately there's either sliced ham or a variety of cheese. Only once were fresh fruits available. Hot food or eggs are missing completely.
The employees are attentive. Free parking is available in the basement of the Coop centre. As customary in Geneva free use of public transports is offered. The train leaves every half hour to Geneva central station. The ride takes 20 minutes.
On the sea promenade or in the village are many restaurants serving rather expensive food. We are in Switzerland, but for the light hunger, supplies can be bought from Coop supermarket below the hotel.
The sparse offer, no gym, a lean breakfast and the secluded location of Geneva does not make this hotel my first choice. Recommendation is given only because the hotel is new and the services should improve after the first months.

This hotel is very new therefore a lot of improvements before it has made enough of a statement that can put itself on the map.

Good points
The view makes this hotel!! my room had amazing views of the lake and the alps although i expect you would only get this if you are placed in a room at the front or maybe the right hand side of the hotel. I woke up to a sunrise that was majestic. the room has a calmness that is only disturbed by the distilled sound of the lake or a few tweeting birds - fantastic.

The quality of the room furniture I must admit is Ikea standard although the bed and bedding are excellent quality. there is a smart TV in the room and good amount of lighting to be controlled.

Bad points
The rooms had basic facilities, but we were assured this was because they had only been open for 5 weeks. I had no mini bar/ fridge, no coffee making facilities or extra pillows, slippers or gown- i.e. things you would expect in standard hotels.
Breakfast was very continental i.e limited selection of ham, cheese and croissant (my worst nightmare as i like a hearty breakfast)
The hotel entrance is not easily located and pretty dodgy, especially at night as lighting is minimal.
There is quite a bit of construction work going on in the area but i heard no noise - bonus. its just looks unsightly.

Despite these minor hiccups, I am sure in a few months this hotel will be thriving, they intend to have a terrace restaurants which also provide views. In comparison to other hotels, they are not quite there yet, but I will be definitely going back to stay when it is finished.

Room Tip: When booking i would suggest trying to secure a room at the front. I stayed in room 370, it looks li...

the hotel is 15 minutes away from the airport, 2 minutes away from the train.
rooms are so nice with great view to the lake, staff very friendly and provide all needed info. there is a shopping mall in the same building of the hotel.
the staff of the breakfast serving are always nice and welcoming but breakfast could be richer

Room Tip: make sure your room is facing the lake
