One of the Manotel hotels in Geneva. Very nice for a short stay in Geneva.
Good location, friendly staff and nice rooms.
Parking quite small, but it seems there is allways some free space.
Do not expect much for breakfast. Decent coffe.

We stayed one night at the Hotel Kipling Manotel in Geneva, and it was a very good choice. We were to leave the next morning by a rented car to cross the Alps and end up in the Northern Italy lakes region.

We arrived in Geneva by train at around 6:30 PM and took the ten minute walk to the hotel. If you are unfamiliar with Geneva (as we were), you should ask a local for the direction to rue de Lauzanne (it's a main street) in order to take the correct exit from the train station. From rue de Lauzanne, turn right on rue de la Navigation, and it's about an extra thirty second walk to the Hotel.

We were warmly greeted by the reception, and properly briefed on breakfast, dinner, restaurants, etc, and were given tickets for the public transport and discounts to certain nearby restaurants. Then we were shown to the elevator to our room. The room was very clean and well furnished, and the beds were comfortable. Quite nice. The hotel has no restaurant (other than the "coffee shop" which is only used for breakfast, or drinks), but that's no problem because there are plenty of restaurant on rue de Lauzanne. The breakfast the next morning was quite adequate and the service was excellent. Our stay at this hotel was very enjoyable. We would definitely return.

Travelled to Geneva with my family for 3 nights. Arrived late and went straight to the hotel. The staff was very helpful and the room was magnificent. The breakfast was minimum. The hotel is within walking distance from the city centre.

I stayed here for my last business trip and really liked it! Like the "colonial" decor, the service and, for Geneva standards, reasonable price.

For a business traveller like myself it ticked all the boxes!

Only spent the night but was pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness, comfort (great mattress!) and quality of the rooms. Front desk staff (two young men) were exceptionally (and genuinely) friendly and helpful. Paid extra for breakfast and glad I did: mango lassi to start, amazing coffee, and a great variety of cold options (overheard Americans complaining about lack hot/fried options though). I had asked for a quiet room and was dismayed to find myself on the first floor overlooking the entrance but the windows are quite soundproof. The area, as others have mentioned, is probably not the most savory for after-dark strolls - I wasn't particularly concerned but wold suggest caution for female visitors to the area.

Room Tip: I expect that rooms facing the back of the hotel would be quieter. There are no views to be had in e...

The Staff are very friendly and helpful. The hotel itself is okay - rooms a bit on the small side but nice. The area the hotel is in is not great but is near the main station which is useful. Didn't try breakfast so cannot comment there. Peanuts etc served with drinks from the bar were terrible. The general feeling between my colleagues and I was that the hotel was a bit overpriced for what it was - but then again this was Geneva! I slept very badly but not sure if that was the beds or what I had for dinner.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms on the 5th floor have a terrace.

Went there with our 2.5 yo, had a good time in the city and the hotel was all what we hoped and payed for. Very clean, not too much noise, convenient location if you're coming/departing by train or plane.
