We stopped to have lunch at the outside restaurant and found the food to be really quite good. The service however was less then good by a large margin and the price was outrageous. If you want to avoid smoke you must eat inside the sitting area where we were was filled with people like to smoke and fortunately the... More

I stayed here for four nights whilst attending a conference in Geneva. I think the hotel is wonderful. I had a large comfortable room which was very quiet. The location is great, close to the old town and the lake. Option to eat inside or outside. Good choice at breakfast and not dishes freshly prepared. They arranged a transfer to... More

This hotel is classical, cozy and comfortable. My room was large and well decorated in the classical sense. The hotel has a good location in this sleepy by night city. The restaurants are very good. It is a quiet and small hotel with great service and very clean rooms. The decor is not modern but functional. Good technology and bathroom.... More

This hotel is located in the old city of Geneva, on the main shopping street and just under the cathedral St. Peter's. We drove in and the valet parking was simple and efficient. We booked the one bedroom suite and a single for our daughter. As it was only one night and the hotel was fully booked her room was... More

Let me start first by saying I have stayed in one of the nicest suites in the Beau Rivage, at the President Wilson, The Grand Kapinsky, Movenpick, Swissotel, etc., many of Geneva's 5* properties. This one stands out as special. First, the location is better then the rest. While not directly on the lake with water views, it is located... More

We stayed here recently whilst taking part in the Geneva marathon. I cannot say enough what a wonderful hotel this is. The room was beautiful, in fact the whole hotel is beautiful with wonderful decor. The breakfast was lovely. The staff were so friendly, and accommodating. The staff made us feel so welcome and just couldn't do enough for us.... More

We stayed twice at this hotel during the month of March. It is situated in one of the best of Geneva's neighborhoods , near all shops, restaurants, the grand park along the Leman lake and practically in the Old Town. The hotel has an old world charm with a small but beautiful hall decorated in a quaint Swiss style .... More

I never stayed at the La Cigogne Hotel, but, since it is centrally located in Geneva, I noticed it often. However, I have dined at their cute, elegant restaurant many times, and have always been well satisfied. I'm normally a red meat eater, but, at this restaurant, I always order a delicious "Dorade" -- a seared gilt head bream filet... More

Appalling lunch, poor decor. Dry skate, pityful starter and miserable desert. Our guests, who chose different mains, were equally unimpressed. It is almost impossible to find a decent restaurant in Geneva that offers some privacy between tables.

Ideal location, extremely polite staff, very very clean, spacious rooms. Should offer a far richer continental breakfast though! In the very heart of commercial roads, few steps from old town and the lake. Among the most friendly staff I have ever met at a hotel. Breakfast not up to the standards of the hotel. Poor.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Discovering the beautiful sights of Geneva starts at the Hôtel de la Cigogne, a haven of peace and tranquility in the heart of Geneva's business centre, only a few steps from the old city, the lake and the cultural district. On place Longemalle, the gilded swan overlooking the door sets the tone of a hotel in which all rooms are different and have been entirely redesigned in a young and dynamic spirit. In culinary terms, you can take a delicious break right in the city centre and sample gourmet treats, now also on the terrace. ... more   less
