We stayed two nights at Hotel Eden on our way to Italy and were very impressed by the location, amenities and exceptional staff. The lady on reception couldn't have been more accommodating or friendly, even ordering us take away pizza on the first night as we arrived quite late, she then provided us with cutlery and napkins and we ate our pizza's in the foyer lounge, such a thoughtful gesture and so appreciated (and the pizza's were delicious!) We had booked a triple room for us and our 2 dogs and were advised on arrival that we had been upgraded to adjoining rooms (a single and double with a small entrance/hall area in between) as this would give us more space with our two dogs, and the extra space was perfect. The rooms were spotlessly clean with everything we needed including Air Con which was welcome after a day in 32 degree Geneva heat. The Park opposite is beautiful, and we opted out of using the free public transport pass that the hotel provided us on arrival, choosing instead to walk into Geneva. We thoroughly enjoyed our walks along the lake and even had an evening swim with some of the locals who appear to come from work for a swim en-route home, the lake is clear and surprisingly warm. For those travellers with dogs, we found several restaurants in Geneva that were more than happy to allow our dogs to sit with us outside while we ate, even bringing them bowls of water etc. There are numerous water fountains situated along the lake and in the old town which are suitable for drinking so we used these to fill up our own and our dogs water bottles which saved us having to buy more water. Generally dogs need to stay on leads so we took extendable leads with us to allow them some freedom and which worked well in the park.
We have been very impressed by the service at this hotel, even before we arrived the email correspondence was informative and very prompt. We chose to reserve a parking space in a secure underground facility a few metres from the hotel at a cost of 28 CHF a day. There is parking on the road outside but this is charged at 20 CHF a day and always seemed to be full so we were pleased we had reserved a space.
Overall this is an excellent three star hotel and in our opinion, in one of the better locations in Geneva, especially if you are bringing your four legged friend who will require a morning and evening stroll! There is no extra charge to bring your dog as there often is in the UK and also no problem leaving them in your room while you have breakfast. We hope to return!
