“nice hotel in a great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2013

The location of the new midi hotel is excellent - close to the river and a short walk to the old town. Access to the main railway station isnt too far either. The hotel has a lovely terrace and is right next to Starbucks (if you like that sort of thing, but there is much better coffee available not far away).
The management are friendly and helpful, and the breakfast is actually pretty good - a good range of food and the breakfast room is pleasant.
The rooms themselves arent overly large but are comfortable and well appointed for a hotel of this price range. The shower was great!
We looked for a smaller hotel that wasnt too pricey (a bit difficult in Geneva) and this hit the mark in every way - very satisfied!

The New Midi is in a convenient location and easy to find. It's a 10 min walk from the main train station. Check-in was friendly and fast. The rooms are small but clean and contemporary. There was a mini-bar in the room but no iron or ironing board. There were no coffee or tea making facilities in the room but I spotted a Nespresso machine in the lobby and there is a Starbucks right next door to the hotel.

The free guest wi-fi was very welcome and worked flawlessly.

Don't forget to ask for your free public transport ticket when you check in. This wasn't offered so you may have to ask.

Would certainly go back next time I have a business trip to Geneva.

Good Location close to the lake, the Rhone and the Business district and also within walking distance from old town.

The whole Hotel is renovated. The style for me is a bit kitsch but it is OK.

The rooms tend to be on the smaller side, but are well equippped, well renovated, no noise from outside or other rooms. Nice modern bathroom. Not enough storage room for clothes.

Breakfast nice, good choice and good Quality.

Staff friendly and efficient.

Very good choice if you want to stay in a 3-star Hotel (compared to other 3-star Hotels this is definitely on the higher end of the scale).

I stayed at the hotel for the second time after the hotel I stay at regularly was fully booked.
The hotel's location is very good, in the centre of Geneva, but on a small and quiet street ne'er the river.
Rooms are very simple and basic, I could hear the tv from the next room loud and clear.
The people at the front desk were nice and helpful.
If you can get an atractive rate go for it, if it is expensive look for a better place to stay in.

Wonderfully sited on the edge of Lake Geneva within a close walk to the city centre and the Old Town. Even the walk from the main train station is no more than 10min taking your time. Check-in was smooth and the receptionists always polite.
We did not bother with breakfast since there are numerous cafes around the corner. The complementary croissant, juice and coffee at the lobby was nice, although the coffee should be topped up more regularly. Fruits on level 1 were also a pleasant surprise.
Rooms are adequate with decent sound-proofing, clean and showers were also roomy with good water pressure. Wifi was reliable and fast too.
On the whole, other than the coffee having to be refilled more promptly and the hotel price (expected with this town and location), it was a good stay for business.

Room Tip: No views to expect so don't bother about high floors.

Geneva is one of the most expensive cities in the world. Hotel occupancy is always in the high 90 percentile range making it always hard to get a room, especially when there are conventions and expositions in town. Because the Hotel is low profile and does not employ flashy advertising and other public relations gimmicks, I was lucky to get one of the last rooms available at the Hotel du New Midi. Geneva is also a city that is very sensitive to historic protection, resulting in its still having small, tight alleys and streets with everything else also smallish and unchanged for centuries. I therefore expected to get a tiny room at this Hotel. The location is great, within walking distance of Lake Geneva as well as major department stores and restaurants, and, on a pleasant sunny day, you can take a walk and gasp at the riches displayed in the dozens of luxury storefronts exhibiting fashionable "Cartier," "Vacheron Constantin," "Rolex," and "Ebel" watches along with others that unfortunately disappear fast when busloads of Chinese tourists arrive.

The hotel offers a very good a la carte menu with meats, poultry, and a variety of seafood choices, and the service and quality of the food equals that of a place having one of those higher stars. At the New Midi, you also get a good night's sleep and use of their free Wi-Fi. An observant tip for my fellow travelers: because the Hotel is surrounded by streets with busy traffic, ask for a room on a higher floor if you want peace and tranquility.

The New Midi is located quite nicely in Geneva with short walking distance to the canal. The surrounding streets are not very busy and you don't really need to worry about traffic noises. If you are looking for a hotel with all facilities, gourmet restaurant etc., this is not the hotel to pick. If you on the other hand is looking for a nice hotel, decent food, excellent rooms and nice location - The New Midi should absolutely be on your list.

Room Tip: The breakfast is served on 2nd floor. Try to avoid rooms facing the breakfast hall.
