“Authentic, traditional Swiss experience”
Reviewed June 1, 2014

Great location. About 10 minutes walk from the train station, and two minutes from the lake.
It looks like a postcard picture of a Swiss chalet. The staff were excellent, and our room was serviced everyday.
We did not eat in the restaurant, as it was a little expensive.
There are plenty of restaurants and shops within walking distance.
We would stay in this hotel again when we visit Geneva the next time.

Hello,
A big thank you for your enthousistic review of your stay with us here at the Edelweiss! I am pleased to hear that you appreciated our staff (will for sure let them know), the decoration of our "Chalet" and our services.
I am sorry to hear that you did not have a chance to try our Suississime restaurant. We do have dishes starting off around CHF 25.-pp and you can enjoy our Swiss folklore music from early evening up til the closing time at 23h00. Something fun to do, try our Alphorn with instructions from our musicians. It is always an amusing moment during dinner:-)
We would be very pleased to welcome you!
Best regards
Maria Croci

Stayed here for 4 days with my friend. Staff were very friendly
and made us feel very welcome. Felt very safe there. Great location
as train station is a short walk and a bus stop is in front of the Hotel. Short
walk to the Lake. Restaurants bars all close by. Would recommend to my family and friends.

The Edelweiss is part of the Manotel chain which has several properties in the Geneva area, this hotel is one of their three star offerings but has everything you might need for a short break in Geneva.

Firstly the hotel and location, as you have no doubt seen from the pictures on the site the hotel has a traditional alpine feel throughout (with the exception of bathrooms in each room). The reception area is pleasant but compact and you wouldn't expect to be spending much time there anyway. The hotel has been well maintained and was spotless throughout the visit - both the rooms and the common areas. The location is good, slightly away from the area around the train station where most mid range hotels are situated but close enough for the convenience of that location for transfers etc. It is a short stroll down to the lake itself or to many restaurants in the area. A few reviewers mention it is not far from some less desirable areas....While it is true that this is the case they are not exactly on the doorsteps of the hotel and you do not have to walk through such areas to access the lake area whatsoever. In fact I would suggest that the location means that you don't have to concern yourself about this at all and for that reason is actually a much better choice than many of the similarity graded hotels in Geneva. We did not once feel in anyway unsafe around the immediate area of the hotel.

Rooms are of a decent size and well maintained and furnished. They have all the essential amenities... Minibar, flat screen TV. Free WIFI, air conditioning. We were situated by the lift but it wasn't too noisy. We requested a high floor and had a room with a jet and mountain view

Staff were very pleasant and efficient. We didn't have much interaction really, we were out seeing Geneva's attractions most of the time, but where we did it was a nice experience.

The Edelweiss is a very good hotel, well located and affordable. I will review the restaurant separately later on but I would recommend highly for guests on a short trip to Geneva who are on a tight (ish) budget.

A charming hotel with a Swiss feel right in the middle of Geneva. We stayed here for 2 nights and were delighted with the value for money in a very expensive city.The rooms were clean, quiet and had a very warm feel with the use of timber features. A highlight of our stay was the wonderful traditional band playing during our evening meal in the hotel dining room. Great breakfast and be mindful if in this city on a Sunday most restaurants and supermarkets are closed.

The hotel is family-friendly, very cozy, a short walk away from the lake. Rooms are quite and comfortable, buffet breakfast is generous. The hotel restaurant is all authentic Swiss, worth checking out. Considering that everything in Geneva is expensive, the price is fairly average. On the downside though, the elevator is tiny!! Do not book a room on higher floors.

We stayed at Hotel Edelweiss which was a beautiful cheese smelling hotel near the Lake. The whole hotel was smelling like cheese because it has this amazing traditional restaurant which is very popular with the locals. We were so lucky to get a spot. A traditional jodel band was playing and customers could even try playing the Alphorn (I had a go and I wasn't very good at it). Some people may find this place a bit tacky but I absolutely loved it! The rooms were decorated traditionally and the location was great.

I am delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us and were able to try our traditional restaurant with the cheese smell, Yodle and the Alphorn! I am sure that you noticed that playing the Alphorn is not an easy thing but it is fun moment during dinner.

The interior is designed to look like a wooden hut. Bathrooms are modern, and the size of the rooms is fine for a city hotel. Due to the fondue restaurant everything reeks of melted cheese from 5 pm - at least in our room on 3rd floor. For 1-2 nights the hotel will do fine!

Full breakfast is 18 CHF but just 30m from the entrance Migros combines capuccino and fresh croissants for around 4 CHF. Going to/from the station is just 2 stops by bus 1 or 25. Walking will take you straight through the red-light district. Plenty of restaurants and bars in the area - and just 2 short blocks to the lake.

Room Tip: We guess that rooms facing toward the square and away from the ventilation of the kitchen will have...
