I have stayed at the Metropole 6 or 7 times this year for business, most recently in July 2011. I have found the staff to be efficent, room facilities reasonable, and buffet breakfast good quality.
Some reviewers have mentioned the high room costs. In my experience the Metropole Hotel is reasonable value for a central location, 4 star hotel in Geneva. A small standard room (no lake view) regular cost is approx CHF 280-350 and larger room CHF 350-400 per night. However, room rates vary wildly depending on demand and expected occupancy. If you are travelling to Geneva during an event or trade show - Car Show, Watch / Jewelery exhibition, UN Congress etc then be aware that hotel rooms are very limited and ALL hotels rooms will be double or triple regular cost. If you have no choice but to travel during these high occupancy periods then be aware of the likely extra costs.More
