This is the best hotel I've staying in Geneva. It's all extremely welcoming and the staff really cannot do enough for you. The rooms and corridors are very plush the bed was fantastic and the facilities including the conference facilities for our evening gathering was run perfectly. I will definitely return here. It's very very good.

Though children activities were mentioned in this hotel as a feature none was found. There was no pool, no spa, not even a children room....we expected a 5 star hotel in Geneva to have these amenities by default...helas!

I recently visited the Hotel Metropole Geneva. This is a regular stop for me, but this was the first visit since the Hotel is no longer managed by Swissotel. Everything in the hotel has been re-branded, but otherwise it is the same place - same staff, same good service and, of course, the same convenient location. So no fears from... More

It was superb. The perfect location- 5 mines walk to the famous Flower Clock and the lake was stunning. We enjoyed the roof top bar. The cocktail was superb. We dined in the restaurant. The food was ok but not that great. There were lots of designer shops around and definitely we will go again when it is winter

The hotel is close to a highstreet (behind it ) and lake (infront of it). Many cafes and restaurants are nearby . Though the restaurants... More

While I am quite often in Geneva, this was my first time at Metropole. The reception was very friendly, yet at 3.30pm my room was not ready. I came back at 6pm, and had to wait for another 20 minutes (arguably with a drink on the house in their nice bar) to finally get into the room. I was positively... More

Hotel was beautiful, very grand and a superb location. Unfortunately it was extremely pricey. (£7 for a small bottle of Evian) and the room was extremely small with not much room. I would most definitely consider this hotel again due to its location but not too sure I'd rush back for the room size.

Whats worse is the beds are like sleeping on concrete. Quiet and elegant, but not for me. Nice breakfast included and excellent service people. I am looking for more, even though the rates were reasonable.
