“Fabulous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

We LOVED this hotel. Elegant, professionally run, quality staff, spotlessly clean. If you arrive by train, look for sign in station that reads 'rue du Mont Blanc' (the road the hotel is on) and walk 3 very short blocks to the hotel on your left. Beautiful large room, incredibly comfortable bed, lovely linens, large bathroom, great toiletries, absolutely sound proofed room. Our window had a small but gorgeous view of the lake. Hotel is 1/2 block from the lake. 5 minute walk across bridge to old town with lovely shops and restaurants. Was fun to window shop (too expensive to buy). Geneva is VERY expensive but lovely to visit. The hotel staff recommended Molino's restaurant for dinner and we had fantastic pizza there (best we've ever had). Took a 1 hour boat ride which was lovely and scenic. Rained our first day and hotel provided umbrellas which was great. Would highly recommend this hotel. Wish we could have stayed longer; just an absolutely lovely hotel.

We only stayed here one night but it was a very nice hotel. It is very close to everything and an easy walk to the lake. The breakfast was great and the service was good. We left by train the next day and the station was only a 5 min walk from the hotel.

The hotel offers a great service, nice people and comfortable and clean rooms.
TV Channels in spanish language would be desirable as there were NON available. ALSO sheets for the summer time instead if dubei covers would be great as it is too hot in the beds despite of the aircon!

Yet another business trip and I can say only positive words about this hotel. Facilities in the room even better than in some 5* hotels in Geneva, you have your own coffee machine and tea pot in the room for free (except coffee capsules:)). Bathroom also provided with full set of needed stuff including bath robe and sleepers. Bed and pillows are very comfortable and you may even find extra pillows if you need. Personnel is very kind, ready to help. If it is raining they will give you umbrella. Free and fresh apples at the reception every day. About location - hotel is close to public transportation, right near the hotel there is a bus stop and bus station if you need to go outside from Geneva by bus, e.g. Chamonix to see Mont Blanc. Highly recommended for the long stay.

Room Tip: I stayed in the room x01 with a view to the court yard located in the corner - far from the elevator...

I stayed in Hotel Geneva for a few days in August 2012 and the surroundings, service and location were stunning. As a lone traveller, I had a beautiful room, complete with air conditioning, mini bar, wifi and cable TV. The staff couldn't do enough for me and I was made to feel utterly at ease throughout my stay. I could not recommend this hotel highly enough and one day hope to return to a wonderful hotel and city

We were not expecting such a nice property. It is an old hotel but very welll maintained. Online pictures do not do it justice. The front desk was well staffed even though it was a Saturday. The person at the reception was extremely friendly and offered us some great advice on sight seeing, local tips etc. The rooms were a little small, but very well furnished and the bathroom was top notch with bright lights and up market toiletries. It hotel is 15-20 steps away from the lake and 5 minutes away from the main station. Most major sight seeing points can be walked to. The brekafast was a good buffet with high quality produce and some live music! Expensive like everything else in geneva, but value for money by local standards.

Room Tip: Ask for higehr floors and back facing ( overlooks a garden)
