This is a very nice and luxurious hotel in downtown Geneva. Just a walking distance away from almost anything you would wish to visit. We took a Superior twin bed room (#614) and the room was just perfect and very spacious. The only issue we couldn't figure out was the respiration of the bathroom, as there was no key to switch it on or off (maybe we were ignorant enough not to find one). The other little disappointment was the fact that we discovered we had no breakfast in the price and Alitalia's ite, where we booked the hotel, didn't mention anything about it during time of booking. Normally, such hotels include breakfast in price. Breakfast itself was rather on the expensive side with CHF 30 per person, so if you are not up to a heavy breakfast, there are plenty of caffeterias and bakeries in the neighbourhood. The hotel staff was very friendly and we had absolutely no problem.
The hotel's restaurant "Le Duo" has a GREAT service and the staff is extremely friendly and especially the waiter from Bordeaux, who served our table. The Swiss wines and the veal were absolutely stunning. A dinner for two in "Le Duo" is probably not one of the cheapest experiences you may find in Geneva, but it would certainly keep you great memories for some years. The dinner, including salads, starters, a main course, a fine bottle of Swiss red wine and light desert would roughly cost you something in the CHF 160 - 180 for two persons. If you are booking and prepaying your room, make sure you ask for a 15% discount voucher they give you at the Reception desk for a dinner or lunch in one of their restaurants. In any case it is absolutely worth the money.... We honestly enjoyed our stay at the Manotel Royal.
