I think this hotel got is 4 star rating sometime in the middle of the 90ties. Back then they were probably well deserved. For now the interior in the rooms is depressing and remind more of a eastern European brothel than that of a midtown Geneva hotel. Located next to the red light district this might be intentional. However that... More

Hotel itself was fine, with a comfortable reasonably spacious executive room, good size bathroom and even an outdoor patio. Location in central Geneva was convenient to public transport, and close to the main railway station. Hotel staff were great, providing excellent customer service. Breakfast was good with plenty of variety and was well managed by the staff. (No waiting for... More

We were in the Novotel for 2 nights and had an executive suite. Basically, this existed out of two rooms with an interconnecting door. One room had the beds removed and sofa fit in. The rooms were good enough, our sitting room had a good view. The furniture was a little uncomfortable, though. Both rooms had mini bars, that we... More

The location is excellent, friendly staff at check in and decent size rooms. The buffet breakfast was quite good. The Internet was fast and reliable. The only let down was the bathroom towels which were small and thin, closer to a tea towel and I can't understand why a hotel if this quality is doing a cost cutting exercise with... More

I have reserved 5 double rooms in the hotel thinking its a good hotel chain and that a 4 star in Geneva would do the job- but i was wrong. Advantage- Location wise its 7 mins walk from the central train-bus station (Cornavin). Disadvantage- The surroundings of the hotel felt a bit like a refugee camp with shady characters and... More

overall good experience. Good breakfast, location, room. The only downside i can say was that the water in the wash basin was stinking. It was not the case for the shower though, only wash basin had the problem.

I've never stayed at a four-star hotel that doesn't provide the most basic necessities. I arrived late night and I was only offered a double room (two beds when I requested one bed), reaking of cigarette and animal smell. When I called for a switch of rooms, they brushed me off by saying there is no other room. This hotel... More
