“Great, as usualp”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

I have stayed at d' Alleves on almost all my visits to Geneva since 1973... 100 visits if not more.
I would say that d'Alleves with its less than 50 rooms is a big boutique hotel...and it was well before the term was invented. Patiently, the now gone Mr d' Alleves did collect a great number of paintings and ancient carpets which you will find in the corridors and in each room. Everything is very nice even the paintings on the ceiling is some rooms.
All rooms are quite nice even though different in shape. The breakfast is very good.
Of course , being nostalgic I felt sorry no longer to find the reception on the side of the little tree shaded piazza at the back of the hotel. But I should not complain. The new reception is very nice and the staff very efficient.
So why not five stars ? Well I will revert to 5 stars instead of 4 when they replace the Jack Daniels and the Johnie Walker Red label in the minibar. OK they can keep the Jack Daniels , but please get rid of the Red Label. I have not met anybody lately who does not consider it as one of the worst whiskies . Let's wake up. The sixties are gone, and the Red Label should be gone too except in motels...
Sorry d'Alleves , but I mean it...and no, I do not agree with the previous reviewer who prefers plush hotels.... I don't.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

Location is great, just a minute walk from the lake and 7 minutes walk from the Central railway station. Althiough the room was spacious, the look was totally out of date and does not agree with the posh feeling of Geneva.

It was my second visit at this wonderful hotel - great location, best staff ever, beautiful rooms. Really feels like home away from home (but a clean and decoreated home...) I will defenetly come back again and again. Dana

I travel to Geneva regularly on business and this is always my preferred hotel. The staff are welcoming, the location is excellent, the breakfast is good, and the rooms are quite spacious, comfortable and clean.

A very comfortable hotel with a super location in the city centre of Geneva. Very good service. The room was nice and spacious. Breakfast was also quite good, although as usual in Geneva, quite pricey. Still; all in all a very good place to stay.

Room Tip: The rooms on the top floors (6th and 7th floors) have balconies.

The Hotel D'Alleves is quaint, a bit small, but very comfortable. The rooms are nice, showers great. Location is super, central to the city, shopping, and tourist areas. The front desk taff is super, very helpful.

Have stayed a number of times in this hotel and have always enjoyed it. Each room has its own decor and layout. Some rooms more functional than others. Avoid room on top floor next to the elevator shaft...noisy.
Great location just walking distance from lake and main shopping area. Train station is also walking distance so very convenient to get from and to the airport without dealing with traffic and it's free!
All hotels in Geneva charge ridiculous prices for breakfast which is normally not included in the price. Just step out of this hotel, turn left and in the corner there is a bakery where you'll get your cafe & croissant like the locals for a fraction of the price.
