Hotel Kipling - Manotel Geneva
Ranked #17 of 106 Hotels in Geneva
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 7, 2012

We were in doubt whether to choose the Kipling or the Royal but after reading the reviews here we opted for the Kipling. Everything was so good, starting with the reception staff who were so nice trying to find me an ergonomic pillow. Very clean, TV with lots of channels, excellent breakfast, silent, AC that worked and the most beautiful interior of an elevator I have seen at a hotel.
Highly recommended.

No matter where you go, if your accomodation is not up to standard then your entire holiday is not going to be very memorable. This hotel lived up to all of my expectations and more besdies. Superbly located, beautifully decorated spacious rooms with every facility you could wish for, and a genuinely friendly and helpful staff made this the centrepiece of an excellent holiday in a city full of wondrous delights. With the exception of CERN and Place des Nations, every other one of Geneva's revelations is within walking distance of the Hotel Kipling-Manotel. Paople have been complaining about the Red Light District but hey, this is a cosmopolitan city with all the attractions of a true metropolis. The RLD adds
yet another splash of colour and a good-humoured diversion from the mundanity of many other European cities. With a polite "no" and a smile, the "ladies of the night" and their "minders" will not harass you and certainly will not make you feel in any way threatened. The city buzzes with life and a sense of carefree fun in the morning, the afternoon and at night. I won't even begin to enumerate the myraid of attractions in the city (because I will use up too much space!). Take it from a seasoned traveller - you will love this place and you will love it more for having booked your accomodation at this hotel. Bon voyage et amusez-vous bien !

Room Tip: Every room is a good room so there's no need to be concerned !

Beautiful clean rooms and bathroos. I liked the decorations since it had a theme but was not over the top or ridiculous. Nice comfortable mattress as well. Location may be a bit colorful with some red light district shops at night but I walked around alone at night and did not feel unsafe. Nice breakfast buffet and free wifi as well. Would stay here again.

The location of this hotel is pretty central and it is good value for money with secure underground parking should you need it.

Facilities are excellent with a reasonable breakfast selection.

The neighbourhood it is located in is probably not the most desirable come nightfall, unless you are looking for some easy to find 'personal services' ...in which case I guess it is ideal ;-)

We arrived late into Geneva, & fInding the hotel proved worrying as it is right on the edge of the red light district. However, once in the hotel it was small & friendly. The rooms were very well appointed & had absolutely everything in them. It had an excellent magnified makeup/ shaving mirror & a great powerful hair dryer too!
The room also had the facility to have a 'kitchenette' to cook your own food.
The hotel is well located central for rail & shops. Turn right out if the hotel at night & it's a flourishing red light area, but Thurs right of the hotel during the day & it's a pleasant 5 minute walk to the lake front.
Beware parking is difficult, we ended up paying to park in a sister hotel for £30 per night!

This is a nice hotel that provides one with a way to get into central Geneva without spending a great deal of money. My one caveat is as follows: be specific about the room that you wish to get. We had a late arrival and ended up with a smoking room with a full-size bed, rather small for two. As the hotel was totally booked it wasn't possible to switch and I assume that, due to my late arrival, I ended up with what is by some measures the least desirable room in the place. (It never occurred to me to request a non-smoking room with at least a queen-sized bed.) But the rooms was clean and nicely furnished and decorated, and the odor of smoke wasn't too strong. The neighborhood seems absolutely fine, and in the morning we quickly walked across the river to enjoy the ancient part of the city. The staff was helpful and professional, the ambience inside is great, and the breakfast buffet seemed superb.

Room Tip: Specify non-smoking, if desired; specify bed size.

This hotel is located in a quite side street, but very close to the main train station (a tram stop is a block away). I read several negatives about the neighborhood, but it didn't seem all that bad to me. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful, the room pleasant and quiet, and the location central to where I needed to be. Overall a very good experience.
