The location was excellent with regard to being a short walk to the Train station, Bus station, Trams, shops and Lake Geneva. I agree with another review in that the street next to the hotel is a red light street, but they never bothered us as a couple. The breakfast was good with plenty to choose from with some items...

The room was clean and the staff very attentive overall. But this was not enough for an enjoyable experience. Large groups of noisy travelers and lobby over crowded with noisy kids, buiding work in the bar, unfriendly / unsafe area (but close to the train station), windows of the room that could not be opened at all ... and the...

The Novotel Centre was a fantastic experience. We booked an executive room.. We got the top floor (seven), specifically room 702/703. It had a sitting room, a bedroom, a room with the toilet and a deluxe shower/bath tub with jacuzzi. The shower has a hand held shower and a second larger handheld on a rod on the wall. But the...

5 minutes walk to train station and boat pier to cross the lake to city centre. Fair breakfast quality included in e room rate. The room was clean but bathroom was rather small. The surrounding area and the hotel entrance were not suitable for my 84 years old dad to walk with slope and stairs.

The staff was very slow and many people waited more than an hour after the checkin time for their keys. We arrived an hour early and were told we could have our key in 5 minutes so we wasted 2 hours before we finally just left our bags at the reception desk. Our shower head was broken, the shower door... More

Spent 2 nights in March this year. This hotel is placed in a very awkwardly situated location. Train station is at a walkable distance. Service was not so great. Looked crowded at the reception at all times. My family was scared to venture out in the nightas we could see young guys in groups at street corner staring at us.... More

Pros: - their executive rooms feature a decent size outside balcony which is a real plus, as well as french doors, so it does not feel claustrophobic as opposed to the standard rooms. - breakfast is honest in terms of choice and good value for the money. The breakfast room on the opposite is hideous, adjacent to the lobby, with... More

I spent 5 nights at this very awkwardly situated hotel in Geneva and, if not for the pleasure of being in Geneva itself (probably the best city in Europe), this trip would have been a disaster. Maybe I'm not lucky with the Novotel brand but every time I went Novotel, I regretted it afterwards. And Novotel Genève Centre was no... More

The hotel was very clean and located close to the train station. The restaurant was very nice and the breakfast was good. The only negative I have is that it was not located in the best part of the city. The neighborhood appeared a little sketchy although we did not encounter any problems.
