“Excellent location, wonderful mix of modern and traditional.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 weeks ago

This hotel does a wonderful job of maintaining the attractiveness of tradition while updating those items that can be improved by modern technology. The rooms have wooden furniture, but plenty of electrical outlets, air conditioning and good wifi access. The breakfast was excellent, and runs until about 1 pm on the weekends. The location is very convenient to the train station, and just a short walk to the old town across the river. Amenities included a mini-bar, hot water pot with tea and instant coffee, safe (a small laptop might fit, iPad was no problem), hair dryer, and bathroom scale (!) We ordered room service dinner the first night, as we had gotten in rather late. The service was prompt and the meal was good.

We stayed three nights in at this hotel in May and overall found it to be pleasant. The decor is dated but the staff was friendly and the location is pretty darned wonderful. Other than a trip to Cern, we were able to walk everywhere we needed to go. And being a 5 minute walk from the train station was nice.

The internet signal was good and there were many restaurants within a short walking distance.

This is a great base to have in Geneva and we would stay there again.

A very nice hotel and a great location make for a pleasant stay in Geneva. The hotel is great for people wanting to enjoy Geneva and the surrounding mountains.
The hotel is an easy five minute walk from the main train station so whether you arrive by train or plane the hotel is easy to get to. The train is one stop from the airport and trains arrive every twelve to fifteen minutes. You are less than a ten minute walk to the old town crossing the Rhone River at the southern end of Lake Geneva which also takes you through the shopping district.
A very professional, helpful and friendly staff was there to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. Our room was very comfortable and clean. The room was large with a well lighted bathroom, safe, small kitchen with a refrigerator and a hot water heater for the provided tea and coffee. The room had an air conditioner but failed to keep the room cool. A very nice cold breakfast was provided with a large selection of cereals, fruits, cheeses, meats, breads, salmon and beverages. Another nice touch was a free Transportation Pass for local trams and buses during our stay. I would highly recommend Hotel Rotary for your visit to Geneva and southwestern Switzerland if it falls in your price range.

We stayed in the rotary hotel for 2 nights in mid June 2014 and really enjoyed our stay. The hotel was certainly an older style but we found it very comfortable with very clean largish rooms and bed. Location was excellent with the lake, many gardens and old town all within easy walking distance. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Overall the hotel was great value compared to many others in the same area. I recommend this hotel and would stay here again if I travel back to Geneva. No complaints.

Went here on a walking trip on 9 May and was very pleased indeed with the hotel. The room had great space, was very clean, had good beds, and nice furnishings. Booked the breakfast with the room and it was worth the bit extra as good selection and hot if you ask.
Staff were good and efficient.
Hotel in great position close to station and the lake front where prices are much higher.
I would certainly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Had a room on the road side but road noise not a problem

We stayed here for two nights in two floor duplex. Everything was good, but they charged us 60 frank for night additionally for our daughter bad, despite we booked duplex in order to have additional room and bad. It was not nice. Otherwise location is good close to train station and lake. We have been provided with transport cards and it was useful.

Having not been to Geneva before, I wasn't sure where to stay and given the prices of some the hotels I was a little overwhelmed.

This hotel is a walk from the train station (I didn't realise how close) and a walk to the lake - it is really central.

The staff were extremely helpful and professional and friendly too.

My room was comfortable - somewhat old fashioned, but my bed was comfortable. The bathroom products were beautiful, and I made use of the bath. I did fall trying to get out of the bath (quite an impressive bruise acquired!), and I left this comment with the hotel when I left - either some slip free mats or a rail required to prevent further mishaps for us not so tall folk.

The breakfast was fabulous.

If I was coming through Geneva again I would more than likely stay here again - it was value for money - compared to the overpricing of some of the other hotels in this city.
