“Very nice stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

Stayed at this hotel for about a week, and reading other tripadvisor reviews helped me to get a very good room: I followed the advice of other travellers and asked for an upgrade which was kindly given and got a room on the 6th floor facing the courtyard, nice and quiet. Excellent service at the reception from everyone, particularly Rossella at the front desk and Romain at the bistro'. Good and quick service with a smile. Got a very good rate for the hotel, around EUR 140 per night. Checkout was quick and precise. I even liked the food in the Bistro while I am normally not keen on hotel food. Good location, walking distance from the main train station (gare cornavin) which is about 5 minutes' walk. Tram stop is just outside. 4 stars all very well deserved.

Stayed 2 nights from New Year Eve. Excellent facilities and very helpful staff. First night room was on second floor a little noisy from trains but acceptable being so close to station. It rained in the night and the noise was horrendous as it fell off the roof onto window ledge. Phoned reception at 4am but thankfully rain did eventually stop. Moved to fourth floor for second night and had a great nights sleep. Rooms very comfortable good wifi and clean and tidy. Didn't use the restaurant and opted for breakfast out. A little expensive but plenty of other options. Can walk to station or use tram from outside hotel just one stop and free with hotel travel pass. Would use again but avoid second floor.

A well appointed hotel one tram stop from the station and thus the excellent local transport system. The reception staff were very efficient and helpful throughout our stay. Our room was very comfortable with all facilities one would expect. We dined in the Bistro and while we found the food to be of a high standard it would be repetative if you were staying more than a few nights.

Room Tip: We has a room to the rear so there was no noise from outside to disturb us.

The hotel was very nice. Our room was great! It was a suite. So we had a king size bed, a sofa bed, a kitchenette, an expresso maker, and a mini bar. Sometimes we had to ask for more coffee. They didn't charge for it but didn't always replenish. The entire staff was very helpfull and polite, and everyone at the front desk spoke English.

I stayed here one night for business before Christmas. It is smart, relatively grand and with helpful staff. My room was spacious and comfortable and although located above the street on the 6th floor there was no noise from outside. Breakfast seemed rather expensive for what it was (or maybe that is just Switzerland) and if I was staying on my own account I would certainly think again about taking it.

The hotel is located about 5 minutes walk away from Lake Geneva and I gather within easy reach of the old town. Perhaps due to its proximate location to the train station, there were a few unsavoury characters in the nearby streets late at night. However, it was perfectly pleasant during the daytime.

We used their meeting facilities which were fit for purpose.

Lovely hotel, old fashioned classy decor, lovely room dressings, comfortable beds (at last). Not cheap but worth it.

Breakfast is lovely, expensive but nice to stay in hotel rather than finding a local cafe.

Near to Station so good for trundling your suitcases. Shops close by, short stroll into Lake, Centre and Cartier!

I usually stay at the Autieul down the block, but they were full so I was moved to the Royal. It is an excellent example of high efficiency and quality Swiss hotel management. We had a double room that was very large by local standards without paying the grand hotel prices down by the lake. It is very convenient - about 2 blocks from the train station and the tram stops right in front. Given that all hotels in Geneva provide free tram cards for the duration of your stay, this is a positive.

From a work perspective, the desk space is adequate and the free wifi is great. The staff are very helpful and efficient.

The restaurant is fine. Full breakfast is VERY expensive, but also very complete. When you book, see if you can get a discount on the breakfast.

Room Tip: If you are a train freak, ask for a room facing the train yards. Otherwise, ask for a room in the f...
