Reviewed January 20, 2014

I spent a week in this small but very tasteful and well-run hotel. It's less than 100 m to a tram stop and perhaps 500 to the train station, so it's super fast, easy and cheap (as in free - get your voucher in the baggage claim area at the airport) to get there. Plenty of restaurants nearby, interesting neighborhoods, short walk to the lake shore and parks. Ah, but more about the hotel. I don't remember encountering such a uniformly genuinely friendly (and helpful) staff. It is now my favorite place to stay when I'm in Geneva. Doesn't have a restaurant, but you can use the restaurant and gym, in the larger Manotel facilities close by (the Royal is less than 50m away).

That's what it had on the hotel plague. 3 stars, but it is so much more! Hotel is new, so everything is in tiptop shape. The room is wonderfully designed. For example there is a mini kitchenette that can be tucked behind a folded door, making the room look neat. The toilet floor is wooden and heated. The triple room I stayed in, the third bed happened to be a comfortable pull out sofa bed, and not those typical thin, creaky extra beds. Breakfast is delicious and you can request to have it in your room. The staff are wonderful, always helping out with planning your trip and recommending which tours are a must go. They also provided us with a transport pass each, which gives us access on public transport for free. The hotel is near Geneva train station so convenience is there. There are many halal food around the vicinity of the hotel so no worries for Muslims and also many supermarkets. Lake Geneva is within 5 minutes walk. The Old Town and shopping district are a tram ride away, but try the public boat ride across Lake Geneva. Interesting!

Stayed for 2 nights, we are a big family of 7.
Loved the design, room and interior decor. Pretty close to the main station but off the main street (still rue de Navigation was somewhat noisy on Friday and Saturday nights well into midnight, but then we are not used to nighttime noise at all). Breakfasts were very good, staff was great. This part of the town (as must often be the case with those near the train stations) is now home to migrants from Africa, but it felt safe. We tried an Ethiopean restaurant called Awash (for some reason we expected it to be like Lebanese cuisine, and it wasn't) - would recommend it as an ethnographic rather than gastronomic idea unless you are into that kind of food.
Will stay there again

Dear Irina V,
My team and I would like to thank you for having taken the time to share with us your kind feedback.
We are really sorry to read that you were annoying with the outside noise during the nights.
Usually as it is a one way street in front of the hotel, it is not so noisy but during the week end, sometime, it can be.
Do not hesitate for your next visit to request a room at the back side of the hotel (it is our car park).
With my best personal regards,
Patrick Le Goff

Small, but very nicely appointed room. Great location close to the station and nearby trams, and easy walking distance to most tourist attractions. Very close to the lake. Helpful staff and courteous. Breakfast OK without being great.

We were really happy with our stay at Kipling Manotel. The location was fantastic, 3 streets from the Lake and the little boat or bridge that goes over to the Old Town and a 5 minute walk from the train station. Very clean, modern and comfortable rooms. Front desk staff very pleasant and helpful. Lovely breakfast buffet if you want it - 18 Francs but they offered us a 50% coupon. The area around the hotel is a tiny bit seedy but we had no issues walking around in the evening on any of our nights there. Great stay - thank you!

This hotel is very quiet and very central - within walking distance to the train station and the lake. The rooms are spacey and the bed is really comfortable. The staff were really helpful and were able to answer all of our questions on Geneva. Would recommend this hotel.

Excellently appointed with very comfortable rooms and clean. Staff all very helpful and courteous plus parking at reasonable cost. Comprehensive Breakfast was included in our room rate but noted it would also be available at a sensible price if excluded.
