“Very nice hotel downtown Geneva”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013 via mobile

Very nice Hotel downtown Geneva with extremly competent and helpful staff. Situated 3 minutes from the train station Cornavin where you can also park your car in the garage, however not a cheap carpark. Only minutes from the lake. The hotel is situated in a small street packed with restaurants. Rooms are nice and well furbished, minibar and nespresso machine at least in the superior rooms. Internet for more than one computer free with good connection. Very nice bar including a small restaurant. Very nice breakfast with friendly waiters and good espresso. in fact this is a four and a half star.

Stayed February 2013, traveled solo

The staff was very friendly and helpful at check-in, check-out, and in between. It's minutes away from the railway station and from the Mont Blanc bridge. The old house has been stylishly and beautifully renovated and reconditioned, and it is cozy and quiet. Next time we're in town, we will definitely book a room at the Rotary Geneva.

We stayed here for 3 nights in February. The hotel is in a great location 5 minutes from the main train, bus and tram station and one road over from the lake. Its just a short walk over the bridge into the old town.

We were greeted in English on our arrival and the staff were frindly and helpful throughout our stay. They gave us travel passes and maps. We had booked an superior room and it was a good size with an entrance area containing a mini bar and coffee machine . The decoration was fresh and the bathroom and separate tiolet were fitted out to a excellent standard with nice tioletries. The bed was comfortable. The room had good heating and we were not cold infact had to turn heating down.

Breakfast in the morning was pleantyful with a good selection on offer including freshly prepared eggs and bacon cooked to order. Staff were attentive and friendly.

The only thing i would say is that we were on level 4 of the new wing and there was no lift. Only one for bags. The 4 flights of spiral stairs were a bit of a slog at times and could be a problem if you have a mobility problem but there are other rooms where lifts are available.

Would recommend this hotel and would stay here agian if we revisit Geneva.

Had a long stay at this hotel during winter of 2011-12. The best part of the hotel was the location.Geneva Lake is right next door, both the train station as well as the bus stations are within 5 min walk, Old city is a 10 min walk (approx), lots of eating options nearby - Chinese, Thai, Indian, Italian, local etc.. A major supermarket Manor is just 2 min walk away from the place.

Staff was professional, never had any issue.Rooms varied greatly in sizes for the same price.. Tip - If you need bigger rooms, opt for the ones opposite to the direction of the main entrance. These rooms were much larger than the ones facing the main road.. I stayed in both the smaller as well as the bigger room and apart from the size, there were no other differences.. Hotel decor is of classic style and the wardrobes, chairs etc. follow the overall look and feel of the hotel.. No bright lights in the room(wasn't a problem for me). In house restaurant served basic local food but I never tried it..
Free Internet (Still a big deal in most European hotels!)
No Gym and Swimming pool
Overall typical Swiss hotel - Functional, efficient and accessible..

I staed here for one night in January 2013. The hotel is in a fairly nondescript modern looking building. The interior of the lobby is quaint, with a nice rustic stone or tile floor. I went for a superior room, it was unexpectedly large, with a separate entrance lobby, bathroom, toilet, bedroom. The decor was pseudo-baroque, a bit dated but nice. The bed was super comfortable, haven't slept this well in a long time!

My room faced the back courtyard, not the front street. It was quiet because it was cold and rainy outside, but on a summer night there is a patio pub that could be noisy. Then again, a patio pub behind your hotel means you will be in that pub in the evening, not sleeping right away, correct ? :)

Very nice staff in the reception, great bartender.

Practical info: 100 m or so from Lake Geneva, shops and restaurants within short walking distance, ATM 50 m away on the corner to the right from the front entrance. Taxi ride from airport ran me about 50 CHF.

Not the best hotel in the world, but I would stay here again.

Stayed here for one night early January, arrived to a warm and comfortable little hotel. Very friendly staff who assisted us with all our queries. Great value for its central location. The room was large and homely with its olden day feel. Very close to the train station, lake and restaurants.
Definitely worth a stay for longer..
