“Great value for money hotel in Geneva”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2011

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.

Room Tip: We had a room facing the street, but it was not noisy at all. Superior double rooms are only slightl...

The hotel is nice and walking distance to the train station. From the airport, we used the free train ride .It was Sunday and stores were closed. Restaurants were opened though. We were given the free transportation cards when we checked in, so we roamed around using the tram and bus transportations for free. KInd of quiet because it was Sunday. We ended up buying souvenirs at the airport.

There were fruits in the lobby and a jar of cookies by the front desk. There were 3 of us, and our room was big. We were provided with bathrobes and slippers and I believe there were 3 closets in the room.

I love the room and the hotel.

I chose a room at Manotel website for Oct 15-17, 2011 - for CHF 170) and got room 963.
The website said that the room would have a 1.40m bed, which is OK for my wife and me, but it didn't say that the room, especially the bathroom, were more suitable for single occupancy! Indeed, I had to request to stock the room for two persons (2 towels, 2 robes etc), and even then the blanket (of so-so quality) was too small for 2 persons and I requested another blanket (which was of even worse quality).
Bottom line: good price for Geneva for a true 4-star hotel, OK location (not great), noisy close-by tram line, very good breakfast, OK room, small and inconvenient bathroom with good amenities.
If I stay there again I'll be sure to spend the extra 20 CHF on a standard room.

Room Tip: Beware the 170 CHF / 1.40m bed trap - pay the extra 20 CHF and get a standard room.

At 1st, was worried about the noise from thebtrain station, reading one of the reviews below. However you would never heat a single train noise day or night. The location is good, walking distance to train station and the lake. Staff are friendly and helpful. And they have yummy cookies :)

We have spent one night in Royal Manotel on our roadtrip and we were very satisfied. The rooms were comfortable and clean, the staff was very nice and we had all the comfort we could have wished for. It is all you can expect from a four star hotel and I might add that for a Geneva the price was also more than reasonable. The only thing I would complain about is extremely overpriced breakfast - 30 CHF for a breakfast is a bit too much. The hotel parking is also not the most comfortable experience in the world, the hotel however has staff to park your car. The great addition was the travel pass and map of Geneva which helped us a lot during our stay. I would recommend this hotel.

As we only spent a night in Royal, nothing much i can comments.

The only things I'm happy is the free wifi connection. It is fast! The interior design of the hotel is up to 4 stars standard. It is slightly expensive, but you will get all you needs (great service, clean room etc) for a 4 stars hotel in Geneva.

Recommend for business traveller and those who afford to pay a little bit more.

Warm welcome and a great surprise that you got a free travel pass for the city whilst there (great that they are not out to rip off tourists). Room was slightly kitch decorated and small, but all and all a great experience. Only spent one night there, Geneva is lovely a bit quiet!
