Me, my wife and 2 young kids (2 and 5 years) were due in Geneva for 4 days as part of our break in France / Switzerland over the new year holidays. We were concerned about finding affordable accommodation that was family friendly. I am tremendously happy we chose the Kipling. We took a 3 person executive room for the...

One of the Manotel hotels in Geneva. Very nice for a short stay in Geneva. Good location, friendly staff and nice rooms. Parking quite small, but it seems there is allways some free space. Do not expect much for breakfast. Decent coffe.

We stayed one night at the Hotel Kipling Manotel in Geneva, and it was a very good choice. We were to leave the next morning by a rented car to cross the Alps and end up in the Northern Italy lakes region. We arrived in Geneva by train at around 6:30 PM and took the ten minute walk to the...

Travelled to Geneva with my family for 3 nights. Arrived late and went straight to the hotel. The staff was very helpful and the room was magnificent. The breakfast was minimum. The hotel is within walking distance from the city centre.

I stayed here for my last business trip and really liked it! Like the "colonial" decor, the service and, for Geneva standards, reasonable price. For a business traveller like myself it ticked all the boxes!

Only spent the night but was pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness, comfort (great mattress!) and quality of the rooms. Front desk staff (two young men) were exceptionally (and genuinely) friendly and helpful. Paid extra for breakfast and glad I did: mango lassi to start, amazing coffee, and a great variety of cold options (overheard Americans complaining about lack hot/fried options...

The Staff are very friendly and helpful. The hotel itself is okay - rooms a bit on the small side but nice. The area the hotel is in is not great but is near the main station which is useful. Didn't try breakfast so cannot comment there. Peanuts etc served with drinks from the bar were terrible. The general feeling...

Went there with our 2.5 yo, had a good time in the city and the hotel was all what we hoped and payed for. Very clean, not too much noise, convenient location if you're coming/departing by train or plane.

The Kipling Hotel is located just next to the Geneva central railway station. It is also within easy walking distance from the lake and other Geneva attarctions. We were welcomed with a great smile whenever we stepped in (We stayed for four nights) and the staff were always attentive and helpful. Upon check-in we received an unlimited free public transport...
