Hotel de la Cigogne
Ranked #43 of 106 Hotels in Geneva
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 25, 2014

The hotel is located right in the heart of Geneva, literally 2 minutes from the lake, near the Pont du Mont Blanc. The area is filled with luxury shops and all the banks are there, so it is great if you go there for business.

Even if it is quite small, you recognize the standard of Relais&Chateux which is very high up..

Breakfast is nice, served either on the terrace or in a nice small saloon.

For sure it has been there for a very long time, but the quality and cleanliness is spotless. Definitely will return.

A great hotel in middle the of Geneva, two steps to the lake, two to the old city. Great hospitality, very warm welcome with beautiful individual and spacious rooms. Swiss luxury hospitality as I love it!

Hôtel de la Cigogne, located in place Longemalle, the ideal location in Geneva. In the heart of the business, bank and fashion districts, at the foot of the Old Town, just a short stroll from the English Garden and Lake.
As advertised, you really experience a "rare feeling of being honoured, recognised and being given preferential treatment”. its a really fantastic and personalised experience; swiss boutique hospitality as it used to be / should be!

Just love the hotel. We had a wonderful suite with a cheminee - the concierge lit the fire just before we got back from town. Perfect place for a romantic weekend - great food, lovely breakfast, very good service. Looking forward to going back.

As hotel part of Relais & Chateaux ( and for the rate I paid) I really expected much more.
The room was nice but decadent. The main door's handle was broken ( it fell from the door!) and the bedcover was visibly broken. Nice the pralines and strawberry in the room. It's just a shame that they ware festering). Exactly next to my room they were doing some works. When I checked in I really needed to rest, and I couldn 't due to the noise. The worst thinh has been the breakfast. Poor, very very poor. Only winning point is the location, super central, and the superkind bellman.

Stayed at this hotel for 5 days . Was in Geneva on work. Location is excellent, right in the heart of the commercial district. Staff was friendly but the property old and the lift small.
Bathrooms were clean and well equipped but the general feel of the passageway is creepy.
