“Great Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

2 adults stayed at Rotary for 1 night in early Jan 2013.
We found the hotel to be of an excellent standard and extremely conveniently located. We took a train from Geneva airport to Geneva main train station (5 min train ride). Note train ride from the airport to the Main train station is FREE (just get a free ticket from the machine at the Arrival hall). The hotel is literally 5 min walk from the Main train station following Rue Mont Blank until it crosses Rue Cendrier. I had a suitcase with me and it was easy to roll it all the way to hotel. Geneva is different to other cities where a close proximity to a central train station is associated with an 'undesirable' location full of rubbish, drunks, drug addicts and homeless 'elements'. Geneva is relatively small city where everything (at least in the city centre including train station) is very close. Clean, quiet and pleasant location of the hotel also benefits from 3 min walk to the lake and if you cross the lake to the 'old' part of Geneva, you will find plenty of shopping, restaurants and historical sites in a very close proximity from each other.
The quality of the hotel room was very good - looked recently renovated, spacious (unlike Paris city hotels if you have experience to compare), comfy bed with good quality bed linen and beautiful bathroom with marble finishes. Buffet breakfast was impressive with large selection of meats, cheeses, fruits, yogurts, baked pastries, eggs, juices, etc. Front desk service was excellent and very helpful with all typical touristy questions like directions, shops, restaurants etc. Needless to say that Swiss working in tourist industry are fluent in 4 to 5 languages :) Impressive above all! Overall we had a very positive impression about the hotel and i would definitely recommend it for a stay in Geneva.

Just stayed for 3 days, very happy with the location, a couple of streets back from the lake and quiet. The room was large and bed very comfortable. Some great bars and restaurants close by. Short walk to bridge to the old town and main train station. Breakfast was ok, not bad not brilliant. Would stay again!

- Zone: calm; very close to the bus stop (5 min to the center by bus, 10-15 min walking).
- Personnel: very friendly and helpful.
- Rooms: clean, adequate size.

Conclusion: a great choice because of the good price and excellent location. Everything was good, nothing bad.

The hotel staff are very professional, proactive, friendly and helpful. Incredible services, perfect location, spacious room and well-maintained definately value for money. The price during peak season is reasonable, you will need to book at least a few months in advance in order to enjoy lower rate. Highly recommended.

Spent one night in the Rotary hotel in my trip back from Chamonix to Paris area. Hotel is quite well located near from all transport systems, downtown, rail station and several key places to visit (Geneva lake, old town, Museum Patek Philip). Reception was very friendly, we got help on city logistics, transportation, parking, etc. Hotel is quite nice, clean and classic, IMHO have a good price/quality ratio. Room and bathroom are spacious and clean. Breakfast (include in my rate) was really good and service was incredibly kind. Will definitively recommend this hotel while staying in Geneva: good location, good service and good facilities. One thing to improve: WiFi service is far from good... They have a service provided by Swiscomm, quite slow, bad reception and every 5 minutes you need to re-login... Boring. This can be fixed easily.

The hotel is very well located and, although it is quite old, it is well preserved. The rooms are spacious, clean and very quiet. The bar and the restaurant, however, are just not good. The prices are quite high and the food is ok. We actually thought the Mac Donald's burger tastes better than the food here at the hotel... But other than that the hotel is quite good - just ignore the bar and the restaurant and you should have no problems.

Room Tip: Rooms in higher floors are quieter

We only had one night in Geneva, so had to make it count. This hotel was the perfect home base to ensure we were able to see as much in the city as possible in such a short amount of time. We were shocked at the high quality of both the room and the service for the amazingly affordable price we paid. Walking distance to the best parts of the town and seconds fom the train station that took us straight to the airport.

Robes and slippers to keep us cosy in the room...even a turn down service while we were out to dinner!! Thoughtful details across the board. Splendid. Highly recommended to anyone looking for a memorable spot to call home in this amazing city.
