The hotels around the Lake in Geneva are actually overrated. This time we thought of trying something very different and booked at the InterContinental Geneva that offers everything one needs for a great family holiday. A 50-year-old 5 star luxury icon recently redesigned and renovated by world renowned architect and interior designer Tony Chi. The suite we stayed in had beautiful breathing views of the entire city including Lake Geneva, the water jet and amazing views of Mont Blanc and the Alps. The hotel is located in the corporate district walking distance from the United Nations building and botanical gardens and just a short drive away from the heart of the city. As a courtesy the hotel provides complimentary tickets to access public transportation for the duration of your stay, this is certainly a unique selling point. The bus stop is situated just opposite the hotel and the main shopping district is a short bus ride away. Our kids really enjoyed the bus ride and honestly it’s the best way to explore the city. The breakfast buffet was plentiful and complimentary Wi-Fi was an added bonus. The hotel has a great gym and pool we just couldn’t find enough time to use them as the city has so much to offer. The staff in the hotel are very friendly and accommodating they took very great care of us and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
