“Traditional Swiss themed hotel in City Centre”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2013

We were booked in by Swiss Railways and this hotel is very convenient for the station. It is also 5 mins walk to the lake along quiet streets. No 1 bus takes two stops from the station.

Very welcoming with comprehensive information on the City, our deal included Geneva card giving access for 2 days on all public transport (which is comprehensive). A/c was lovely on a very hot summer day.

Room spacious and wood paneled giving a traditional feel although this is externally a basic modern building. Restaurant has a themed Swiss night with mountain horns, bells and accordion music we thought it was well done and not too cheesy (that was the fondue on every table...)

Comprehensive breakfast and overall a very pleasant stay, would have happily stayed longer. Everything in Geneva is easily accessible, we went on to the airport by train only took 10 mins.

Room Tip: There is a small square outside the hotel where traders gathered so there was a little buzz in the e...

The hotel was nice and in a good location, though the room was on the small side. Unfortunately, the taxi driver from the train station tried to rip us off after "forgetting" to put the meter on. He cursed at us, belittled tourists, threatened to steal our luggage before agreeing on a price and going on his way. This colored or view of Geneva, so we won't be returning. The lake is beautiful though and the hotel is certainly close to it.

We stayed at the Edelweiss Manotel for one night while on a road trip. The hotel was in a great location and walking distance to many main attractions and of course the lake. Parking was offered at the sister hotel just up the road, which was convenient, but came at a charge. The are some underground car parks nearby, run by other hotels. DO NOT park in these as the charges are extremely high!! The room was typical chalet style and a triple room offered enough space for our family. It was clean and comfortable and also had a Nespreso coffee maker in the room, which was a great addition. Breakfast was offered at a charge, we ate out instead. The hotel has a restaurant, which was very good but also very expensive! Our dinner that evening cost us more than the room itself! Overall a great stay, very helpful staff and convenient location.

Lived 5 years of my life in Switzerland I was really glad to discover the Edelweiss hotel in Geneva!!!
You really feel that you are in a chalet up in the Alpes. It reminded of cosy hotels at Nendaz, Zermatt, Montana, Gstaad...etc. Swiss hospitality, even though once they forgot our room service order directly given at the reception, rooms spacious, comfortable beds and a very nice typically Swiss restaurant. The breakfast was average, but the price paid good. The restaurant in which we dined once very warm and very special if you are a fan of fondue and swiss charcuterie. It worths dinning even you don't stay at the hotel. Pricing is reasonable and service is friendly
The access to the commercial down town is easy with the bus passing just in front the hotel. At the reception you get an all day pass to use for free the public transportation. If you want to enjoy a walk by the lake you walk 2min and you are there.

Really enjoyable stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a lake view at the top floors

A fun hotel modeled after a traditional Swiss Chalet...the staff was helpful and welcoming. Conveniently located; close to the Gare de Cornavin train station and Central Geneva; it's an easy walk to Lake Geneva; Old Town is a bit longer walk. Rooms were plenty comfortable. We ate dinner in the hotel's restaurant and enjoyed a tasty traditional Swiss meal with live music including yodeling. A little kitschy, but fun for couples as well as families. Room rate was a little pricey but didn't seem out of line with other hotels in Geneva. Wifi worked well for us but our electrical adapter didn't fit into their plugs, which seemed to be a bit smaller than usual, so we couldn't charge our devices. Since we were only there for one night that wasn't a big deal, but something to watch out for. Our adapter worked everywhere else in Europe; we just had a problem in this hotel. As others have mentioned; there was a bit of a smell in the room, but after being in the room a few minutes we no longer noticed it.

This place is nothing more than a giant rip off. I was charged 200 Euros per night..The bathrooms is just a shower and NOT even a bath-tub, They don't even change your towels. And get this, They even charged me for breakfast. I was told when I first checked in that breakfast was included. So, I was NOT only lied too but, they also have this person who works at the front office and her name is Jameela..She was very rude and very argumentative. When I told her my breakfast was included. She replied that it wasn't even true, than I tried to speak to her manger and she told me no point into talking to her manger because she was going to tell me the same exact thing. Seems to me she made sure that she would screw me over.. IF anyone even thinks about staying at the Edelweiss, Make sure you stay the hell out of there. It's a complete RIPOFF....

It was a charming hotel! The location was perfect, about 15 minutes walk from the Geneva Cornavin Station and 4 minutes walk from Lake Geneva. Plenty of restaurants around. The rooms were medium sized but very comfortable. We did not try the breakfast at the hotel and cannot comment on that. I would recommend this hotel.
