“Near airport for French side”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

Needed a Hotel near the Geneva airport on the French side for a car return. Worked great. Was a good place to reorganize for our return to the US. Staff was friendly and spoke English. Our French is very weak. Not much close to the Hotel but that was fine for our purpose. We had a Peugeot buy back lease which is a great alternative to a car rental and had to return it on the French side of the airport to avoid drop off fees. It was perfect for this task. No muss no fuss. In and out, no hassle. Hotel is clean and our room looked like it was recently remodeled. Would recommend for a one night stand but not for extended stay. It was the most expensive stay on our month long trip through Europe but we are B&B people not Hotel people.

I recently stayed at the Novotel Geneva Airport with my bicycle tour group, the hotel was very nice. The staff was very helpful and friendly, especially to a non- French speaking american. The restaurant was also very nice and the food was quite good. When I am next in Geneva, I will stay at this hotel.

If you just need a room to sleep near the airport, choose this hotel. But if you want to go and eat out in the evening, don`t choose this because the village is 20 minutes walk a away. The pool was fine in a hot day.

Even though this hotel is marketed as an airport hotel, it is quite far from Geneva airport. I paid Euro 35 to get to the hotel by Taxi, assuming it should be close to the airport and deciding not to wait for the coach to save time. All the time I saved, was lost when the check in staff gave me a room where the air conditioning was not working. When I called the reception, they clearly knew the air conditioning was not working and issued me a new room. I guess none of this should be expected from an airport hotel, considering most people use an airport hotel for transit and in this case, you normally don't have too many hours to sleep. It gets much worse when the check in staff wastes an hour of your sleep by giving you a room which should not be given to any guest, let alone a Gold Card member of the Club Accor program.

We stayed at this property for one night on a stopover in Geneva and had two rooms.

The hotel is located about 10 minutes from Geneva Airport, and on arrival we had to phone the hotel to ask when the shuttle bus would be arriving, even though we had advised our arrival time. Butt once on board the bus, we arrived at a pretty average looking hotel. The lobby is modern and well appointed, and the receptionist spoke English.

Our rooms were on the first floor and as it was such a hot day, we turned the air conditioning on. Unfortunately during the night the air conditioning turned off and we sweltered an unpleasant night away. The receptionist, when we complained at check out the next day, shrugged and said there was a fault and it needs to be fixed. Not great when we had to leave our room door open to the hallway to get cooler air in.

We were left with 2 small milk capsules for 3 people. When my husband went to the reception to ask for some more, was directed to the bar. The receptionist wasn't very helpful or polite on this occasion.

The area where the hotel is located is not the best, with signs in the car park reminding guests and visitors to lock their cars and ensure no valuables are in sight. Standard stuff, I guess, until you walk across the street to a supermarket and realise the area where the hotel is in, is not a good one. McDonalds is also across the road where the shops are located.

As the hotel is located in the French side, the Euro is used.

The shuttle needs to be booked for your return trip to the Airport with the Receptionist.

Room Tip: A room overlooking the pool would be your best choice.

Reception staff friendly and helpful.
Free Shuttle bus from airport works well. Runs regularly from hotel back to airport. Need to book place at reception to ensure a place.
Room spacious and quiet. Bed very comfortable.
Towels looked a bit worn.
Make sure you put your do not disturb sign out if staying in the room after 0800 as otherwise the cleaning staff will try to get in to clean your room.
Restaurant food was good but overpriced - especially the beer! Also you will need to let know the waiter/waitress know that you are there otherwise you could be in for a long wait.
