I just got back from my trip to Geneva and stayed at the Metropole. The hotel is in a very convenient location near the old town. Its a 15 minute walk to the train station (if you have only one suitcase on wheels its easy enough to walk to the hotel). The main bus station is only a 5 minute walk. There are plenty of shops and restaurants near the hotel. An english garden and busy road is all that separates the hotel from the lake.
The staff are very polite and helpful. The room (Superior room -city side) is smaller than i hoped. When you pay £££ to stay in a hotel you expect a larger room. The bathroom was small too. Despite this, the room was clean, had a nice coffee/tea maker and fridge stocked with drinks (drinks consumed are charged for). The tv had a good range of tv channels. Being from the UK, i was pleasantly surprised the range included BBC1, BBC2, ITV2 and Sky News!
The hotel looks very plush from the inside. It has two restaurants and a gym which i did not use. Overall i would say this is a nice hotel to stay in. However when paying £150 a night you kind of expect a little more. Bigger room perhaps.
