Enjoyed our stay in one of the hotel's family rooms. This was a good-sized rooms with one of the better beds for children that I have seen. Staff were very polite and helpful, particularly Paula on reception and Sara in the breakfast room who was able to offer some lactos-free milk. Breakfast was good, as was the very large double...

It's your basic 3 star hotel. Good service no complaints friendly front desk girls and they were helpful in answering any questions we had. Close to train station as well so it makes it convenient for travel.

Great little Hotel, central, convenient, clean, quiet, well presented and everything we needed for a relaxing weekend. Helpful and informative staff coped with my abysmal excuse for French both at check in, breakfast and throughout.

We enjoyed our stay. The rooms are not large, but adequate for 3 adults. The staff was friendly and helpful. The location is not the greatest. The neighborhood is very sketchy. But we discovered there was a way to bypass this on our walks to get across the bridge to the main area that we spent most of our time.... More

We returned to the hotel again this year for a short stay, due to its convenient location being a few minutes from the train station and the lake being a short walk away. With the free travel card you can easily catch a bus or tram back to the station. Our room was clean and presentable, front desk staff polite... More

We stayed at the Kipling on two occasions in July. The hotel has nice rooms that keep street noise out with good windows. The hotel and rooms are very clean. The front desk staff are extremely pleasant and helpful. The location is convenient for the train station. The thing that can cause frustration is that the hotel is used by... More

The Hotel Kipling was clean, nicely decorated, and comfortable. The location is a short walk from the train station, on a quiet side street. It is only a 10 minute walk to the lake. The Paquis neigborhood in which it is located is very different than the upscale lakefront area, but seemed safe. It is not the area that most... More

I chose this hotel primarily based on location as it was in walking distance (5 minutes) of the train station and we only had one day in Geneva. On arrival we were given a travel pass valid for our stay and included tram, train and boat. After check in we headed into the old city and got a feel for... More

This hotel is nice, smart and modern with courteous staff. Good parking facilities and comfortable rooms and nice proper pillows ! The problem is its location. Yes as has been previously noted it's slap bang in the red light district which for most broad minded people is not a drama but what is disconcerting is the numerous pimps and what... More
