“a good stay and I'll be back,”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

all in all its a good hotel and a good value. Location is good - near the station, the neighborhood is not inspiring and the view form the room is of a parking lot. the room was large in European standards and actually very comfortable. Few glitches here and there, but the overall review is that it is a good hotel. An excellent rank is a bit overdoing it, because the setup isn't perfect, but the staff was real nice so I feel generous in ranking.

We chose Hotel Kipling based on Trip Advisor and we couldn't be happier! Lovely staff in the lobby, minutes from the train station and beautiful rooms make this hotel rank very high in our opinion. We are a party of 2 adults and 3 children and booked 1 executive room and 1 standard right across the hall. The standard is fine for 2 people and has a very nice bathroom and the executive room is spacious, has a sofa sleeper and a kitchenette with microwave, Nespresso, sink and fridge. Perfect for families with children or an extended stay. Plenty of restaurants nearby and very easy access to the airport-and the transportation is free!

We were on our way from Chamonix, looking for a nice place to stay on our last night. The hotel is very easy to find, has underground parking, great Eastern-themed rooms and very helpful staff! in addition it is worth redeeming the restaurants' discounts provided at the arrival - the Edel restaurant was super!

A very nice 3 star hotel ideally situated very close to railway station shops town and the lake. Very clean and good decorative order with helpful reception staff. A little on the expensive side but that is Geneva!

Small hotel near the main station. Well located. Has some character, and furnished with Asian furniture. Check-in was easy and friendly. Medium-sized rooms, nice enough bathroom. Overall clean; room could do with a few touch-ups on the wall. Good beds, minibar in the room, desk, and small sitting area. TV programming satisfactory (which can be a challenge in Switzerland). Breakfast was not included, but at CHF18 was a steal (again I am speaking comparatively here, given the Swiss context), as plenty of which to choose from. No gym or pool; free internet (could be somewhat faster).

Overall, this will be as good as it will get in Geneva -- it is unlikely that there are many places that are better located, and provide a better experience.

Geneva is known to be an expensive place. The Kipling I found to be great value for money. Although it is a 3-star, you get the impression to be in a 4-star.

GOOD:
- Conveniently located: 5 min walk from Cornavin main train station, 10 min walk to lake Geneva
- Rooms are nicely decorated, clean - beds are comfortable
- Friendly service
- A small breakfast buffet with a reasonable choice

YOU SHOULD KNOW:
- There are no restaurants, however, you get a 15%-off voucher to use one of the other Manotel group hotels' restaurants - closest by is the one in Hotel Royal (2 min walk)
- Located in a small side street to "rue de Lausanne" - quiet but not spectacular.
- Prices are reasonable for Geneva - between 160 and 250 CHF, depending on day and package.

VERY RECOMMENDABLE FOR COMFORTABLE, SHORT STAYS.

Room Tip: Rooms towards the back overlook a parking lot and are very quiet. You can sleep with the window open...

I choose that hotel after reading some good reviews on it.
Yes the location is great many restaurants around and walk distance to main train station.
the room is clean and design very nice. offer also free WiFi in the room.
Car park is available at price of 30CHF for a night
However, I personally disliked the fact that the room is very small, I was alone but I don't know how to adults can be in the room without step on each other.
I had also problem of water stream is the shower, and this was the big disappointment, who want to start complain on 22:00 on douche problem.
On top of this the douche head was very small, so after long day of work it's really shame not able to take proper shower and this destroy my experience of this hotel.
I saw on the back of the room door that normal rates are around 400CHF - this hotel doesn't worth that amount!!
I payed 180 euro, and for that amount it's ok - no more.
so I will rate this hotel as Ok but only if the price will be like that, not sure I will return to it
