Very nice hotel. Would have given a 5 but we got the junior suite and the sleeper sofa did not have bedding on it and took a long time to get the bedding for it. When we finally got it there were no sheets and only one pillow.

I have come to anticipate, although still haven't accepted some common shortfalls I find with classical European hotels. Aside from the relatively small square footage, I find the rooms almost inoperable. The king sized bed is not a king at all, it is two twins pushed together. Whoever designed the showers should never be allowed to design for a hotel... More

My husband and I stayed in this hotel in Geneva for 3 nights. The hotel is very centrally located on the right bank of the city. It is an easy 10 minutes walk to the lakeside and old town area. You are five minutes away from the United Nations complex and redcross museum on a tram that is right in... More

The hotel is centrally located, with public transportation at the doorstep. Rooms are OK, dated with old style furniture. Housekeeping do a mediocre job, no bathroom mat changed, no fresh towels & floor was not steeped! Breakfast was very average but the service was very good. Would definitely look for another hotel, if in Geneva again

Didn't have any real expectation when checking in and maybe that was best. Friendly front desk staff and a clean hotel in general. Maybe my expectations were dimmed by the errors in my reservation (referinng to me as Ms Rudd Janssen) and inability to reserve a parking spot ahead of arrival which is really a necessity when the hotel is...

Last minute booking. Arrived at around 2300 and got an older room on the 4th floor in need of renovation. The lobby had a strange odour (to put it diplomatically) and the room was noisy. My last stay at the Royal was very different, so this time I was quite disappointed. I will give it another try due to the... More

Arrived and scored a free upgrade with a spa and made good use of it. The receptionist was very helpful as we arrived on National Day she told us about the celebrations that night and how to get around the city. The room was very clean and very comfortable king size bed. Only stayed the one night but had a... More

We arrived at the third hotel of our vacation - the Royal Manotel Hotel in Geneva, the car satellite navigation system found the hotel easily.

We spent two nights in the Royal after completing a cycling race from Nice to Geneva the week prior. The location was excellent - close to transport, the old city and numerous very good restaurants and shopping. The staff were super friendly and helpful and the breakfast buffet was outstanding in both quality and variety. Our room was very comfortable... More

This hotel is well situated near many restaurants and a short walk from the lake and the railway station. Our room was a little on the small side, without much view except over the street. It was ornately decorated and had a large bathroom. The staff were friendly, very accommodating and efficient.
