We stayed one night at the Hotel Kipling Manotel in Geneva, and it was a very good choice. We were to leave the next morning by a rented car to cross the Alps and end up in the Northern Italy lakes region.
We arrived in Geneva by train at around 6:30 PM and took the ten minute walk to the hotel. If you are unfamiliar with Geneva (as we were), you should ask a local for the direction to rue de Lauzanne (it's a main street) in order to take the correct exit from the train station. From rue de Lauzanne, turn right on rue de la Navigation, and it's about an extra thirty second walk to the Hotel.
We were warmly greeted by the reception, and properly briefed on breakfast, dinner, restaurants, etc, and were given tickets for the public transport and discounts to certain nearby restaurants. Then we were shown to the elevator to our room. The room was very clean and well furnished, and the beds were comfortable. Quite nice. The hotel has no restaurant (other than the "coffee shop" which is only used for breakfast, or drinks), but that's no problem because there are plenty of restaurant on rue de Lauzanne. The breakfast the next morning was quite adequate and the service was excellent. Our stay at this hotel was very enjoyable. We would definitely return.
