“Looking forward to next stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012 via mobile

I spent two nights at the hotel. While the price was rather higher the service provided was of very good quality. The staff were very responsive to any needs or requests. I liked the location of the hotel. Located in the center of the city, a few minutes from the lake and the old town, but still in a rather quiet place. I didn't hear any traffic or any other noise. Breakfast was simply remarkable, service very fast. Nice selection of food. There are many other places too it in the neighborhood as well.
My room was very nice, clean. The only thing needs to be repaired - the cupboard's door is very, very creaky. A few drops of oil will make a difference. I made a very nice experience and will return.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

My last time in Geneva was twenty years ago. Things changed and at this time I didn't find the beautiful and clean city I was wondering about. I wanted to stay close to the Place Cornavin ( it doesn't exist anymore, because of the subway construction) dreaming about Rue du Mont Blanc... It was almost a nightmare... The only good thing I've founded there was the Café de Paris . The square was gone, the street was dirty and full of odd people, many policemen going up and down.
To stay near this place, I've chosen The Rotary Hotel. The staff was very helpful, with excellent tips about restaurants and chocolate stores. The big problem: they gave us a bedroom in the left side of the hotel. They told us they were giving an upgrade. The room was really big, with a nice bathroom, but I had to take the stairs to the first floor, to get the lift to the other floors. It 's not the best thing to do, after walking the whole day. To go to the breakfast room, I had stairs going down from the lobby.
The breakfast was very good, much better than the breakfast in Zurich, and the waiters and waitresses were awesome. In our second day, they knew our names.
The bar is an excellent place to relax after spending the day shopping or strolling. But drinks were very expensive. We've paid 19 euros for a drink. For the same drink, we've paid 10 euros in Innsbruck. On the other hand, I had free wifi .
Unfortunately, Geneva is not the same anymore....

Great hotel, pricey, but compared to what you get in Geneva ( a LOT of crap!), this hotel is absolutely a good, nice, clean hotel. Bed is fantastic. TV as always in Geneva, dubbed to French or German. Very close to the train station and the lake (about 200 meters to each). Not so much to do in Geneva, but being here this close to the center, you will find your way around and do some errands, meetings, some decent shopping, and it will possibly be the most memorable visit to Geneva. Avoid overpriced hotels of so-called five stars in Geneva. Besides being overpriced, you will get a huge portion of upper lip attitude. In this particular hotel, they are professionals and you will be treated as you are expected to be.

We stayed for 3 nights and had a booking which included breakfast. This was definitely a good start to the day, with fresh fruit, cereals, yoghurts, smoked salmon, selection of meats and cheeses and fresh breads, pastries, muffins. There were also a good selection of drinks and hot dishes were cooked to order and you could certainly tell the difference between these and the ones kept on buffet at many hotels.

The hotel is in a very convenient position, close to the station and the lake, as well as the Manor, mentioned by several other reviewers and the tourist information service.

We had a great tour of the United Nations, which according to the tourist office is not open at weekends (perhaps during winter months?). We were hoping to go to the Red Cross museum but that is closed until some time in 2013.

All the staff at the hotel were very helpful and we took up a suggestion from them to go to the cable car for a walk on the mountain and watch para-gliders taking off.

The free public transport certainly is a great help to tourists in an otherwise expensive city.

Brilliant location and very clean. The staff was always helpful, the rooms are very good size and the bathroom it is perfect.
The only negative was that i could smell cigarettes through the air conditioning but beside that fantastic value for money, especially in Geneva
