“Design everywhere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

If you are looking for something trendy, little different - try N´vy! I really liked the art and design in public areas. We stayed in superior room which had a couch and a coffee-maker. Everything was clean and modern.
The breakfast also had a nice "twist" to it, rich selection of dishes. We also ate in the hotel restaurant in the evening, the service and quality of food very good. The gym was also excellent, good selection of training equipment.

A hotel that caters for business people and tourists alike. Easy to get to from Geneva main station using public transport. Staff seemed ok although was a little disappointed to learn that my room would not be available for several hours. Cannot fault the hotel on cleanliness and smartness or indeed on the breakfast! Overall, a decent option.

We thank you for your comment. The rooms are usually and at latest ready at 03h00PM. If the hotel was fully booked the day before your arrival, check-in can hardly be earlier. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and we are looking forward to welcome you back next time you are in Geneva.

Very comfy and modern hotel. Not quite right in the heart of the action but a short walk away and the price is so much more reasonable than the ones on the 'front' of the lake.
The room was nice and modern, had a philips mood light strip - bit gimmicky, but it was nice actually to change the colour of the lighting (small things!). The TV had a huge range of domestic channels from your home country all free, good quality TV, furnishings and little touches of 'cool' such as a chaise instead of a sofa in your room, acrylic purple with a touch of glitter in it wall covering on one wall (made to look/feel like horse-hair almost). Sounds odd but the overall effect is pretty funky. The rooms are not huge, but having stayed in the Swisshotel the next day, they were no different in size.

Other than that, all the usual things you would expect. As in the rest of Geneva, parking is an issue but they have a garage for your car for 45francs a day. Watch out for the one-way system that the sat-nav doesnt know about though!

Didn't eat here or use spa... used all the time wandering to find other local options.

This Hotel was booked because of many positive posts in TripAdvisor. Hotel was recently (end 2012) open after deep renovation. Everything was fine. Decoration and materials are fresh and modern.
The food is perfect. Bar is excellent!
The location of Hotel is not bad. Definitely it is not perfect but not far from the center part of Geneva.
The room is nothing to add: big and new TV with lot of international channels. Room has normally fitted minibar, Nespresso, Tea selection, etc. Bed is very good. Bathroom is big enough and well equipped. Bath cosmetic is ETRO. LED lighting with different colors by Philips.
Bathrobe and sneakers. Everything is fine.
I had only one claim: my first room was on the 1st floor. So I was start my day not by my scheduled alarm but with kitchen personnel. Before the birds starts celebrate new day. Later this issue was fixed by reception. They find me another room on 4th floor. Absolute noise isolation.
Based on this experience I can say that hotel administration know the term Hospitality as practical think in their business. Generally, personnel is very professional. That is most important point in hotel business.
Please do not hesitate to try hotel restaurant. This is really good food and service. The price level is adequate for Geneva.
To summarize above mentioned I would like to say that location compensated by Hotel quality.

Room Tip: Some rooms on smoking first floor could be very connected by sound with the kitchen.

This hotel is well situated but without a real view. The room was a dream. All designing, preparations and planning just a little bit nicer, original and special. Be it the fantastic shower (never thought I would say that about a shower ), the possibility to change light colors according to your mood, the freebies, the excellent air conditioning, the super high tech TV and dockport, the chocolates on your bed at night, the free bus pass for Geneva, the reductions in other restaurants .... all was just a bit more than it has to be even in a hotel of this price range. I really enjoyed it

Though this hotel is more hip and edgy than the hotels in which I usually stay (I'm a middle-aged white male), there is no real down side to this fact. The service staff are fantastic (and I do not exaggerate) and no request cannot be handled by them easily. A great experience. My only comment is I am not sure that "junior suite" (the hotel's term) describes the room we had correctly.

Stayed for 2 nights. Great design hotel with excellent and service minded staff. Room was not the usual standard but much better. Breakfast OK but at the evening a DJ with lounge music in the bar / lounge area with fantastic cocktails. Restaurant is also above the average with a good mix of excellent food in a relaxed atmosphere. The, in general, young staff was of high standard and seems to enjoy there work. Not often seen in European hotels!
