Reviewed December 10, 2012

Have been using this hotel regularly now, for about 3 years.
The staff are friendly and helpfull, the rooms are a good standard and the free coffee in reception is not bad either.
They now have WiFi on all floors and the signal strength is good.
It is ideally located in Geneva to service the whole town.
Rooms are always clean and well presented with everything you need for the stay.

I stayed on my own for two nights on a business trip. This was my second time to Geneva and first at the New Midi. Overall the hotel was good. I would stay again if the price was right and would recommend to friends - but will still check out other hotels on future trips.

Location - 5 minute walk from the rail station and right next to a pedestrian bridge to the old town - yet still on a quiet street. Manor department store is around the corner as are some decent pubs.

Room - The room I had was on the top floor and had great views of the river. Shower room was clean and well appointed. Bed was comfortable. Bathrobe and slippers was a nice touch. Not a large room but adequate for my needs. Couple of small points - the hotel has free WiFi but the outdated and slightly amateur room literature refers to some pay at the front desk system. The ridiculously large and cumbersome key-chain is also annoying.

Service - The front desk staff were happy to help when asked and provided me with an adapter, toothbrush and free Geneva transit card but were not overly proactive in providing assistance.

I didn't eat or drink at the hotel so I cannot comment.

We stayed here for one night and found the room to be clean and comfortable with a nice bathroom (excellent lighting). There isn't much hanging space in the wardrobe but there are plenty of shelves & a safe. The TV and wifi reception were both poor. Location is excellent, very close to the lake, 5-10 mins walk from the railway station, in a decent area & next to Starbucks. I would stay here again although I'm not sure how the star system works as I wouldn't say it was in any way luxurious.

The New Midi Hotel is perfectly located. Close to the Lake of Geneva, Old Town, many restaurants and shops, all walking distance. Service is excellent! We have stayed on several occasions in this hotel and have been , on the whole, very satisfied. Rooms are well decorated with works of art but they are small; some are very small. Wifi connection is at best erratic and the breakfast buffet is basic, especially when you go later ( breakfast is served until 11.30). Price wise, compared to other hotels in the area , you will get a fair deal.

Very good hotel, excellent location, attentive service. I recommend!
I would suggest that tea pots will be available in rooms - this is the one thing I felt was missing.

-Location
Adjacent to Quai des Bergues, within walking distance of Banking district and Cornavin Train station
-Access
5 minutes’ walk from Cornavin Train station, Trolleybus lines 5 and 10 from Airport (BelAir stop)
-Room
Smallish but functional, not ideal for work as desk is small too, Coffee machine
-Service
Professional

Standard breakfast (with a selection of Swiss cheese and Bircher Muesli); alternatively Starbucks Coffeeshop next to hotel.

Daring mix of styles (Reception area concentrates on red velours (!); every floor has its human sized papier maché figure standing in front of lift door – bizarre, but quite amusing)

It took us a while to find an hotel in Geneva as they were all so expensive and many were booked out!

We settled on the Hotel du Midi, which now seems to be called the New Midi - I guess due to the refurbishments.

We found its location to be excellent and the staff at reception very friendly and always helpful.

The outside of the building was clad in builders covering and we were a little concerned that this may create problems for our atay but we needn't have worried - all was fine.

Our room wasn't ready when we arrived but the reception staff went out of their way to contact housekeeping and hurry them along and within a few minutes, the room was ready for us.

The room, like most hotels in Geneva I suspect, was smallish but adequate. Newly and tastefully furnished and a new bathroom. The room was quiet and we enjoyed our stay.

Unfortunately, the restaurant was closed due to refurbishment works but their associate hotel directly accross the road could be used and meals charged back.

The location is good - just a 5 minute walk to the station and 5 or 6 minutes over one of the bridges over the Rhone to the main shopping districts. Lots of restaurants within a short walk and cruises on the lake about 10 minutes away.

We would recommend this hotel and would stay again.
