I really don't know who designs these hotel rooms.
But I am pretty sure they don't sleep on the designed rooms.
Or, if they do, it will be by themselves.
How, on Earth, are you supposed to use the doorless bathroom if there is someone else in the room?
This is just part of a set of problems at the Swissotel Metropole.
Let's start with the fact they market themselves as "five star boutique hotel".
It is clearly not a five star hotel. Service is poor and unattentive. We had to contact reception several times in order to have our wi-fi internet connected.
There was an open chocolate bar on our mini-bar. I've complained twice and on the second day it was still there, half eaten. Awful.
It is a massive hotel, many many rooms. You will wait for a long time to get a cab in front of the hotel. Guests queueing.
It took me about 15 minutes one morning to get a cab there. With guests fighting for the next taxi to arrive. Not fun at all, if you are running on a schedule.
And this is something very unlikely to happen anywhere else in Geneva that is a tiny town.
I really don't get where they take the "boutique" part from...
