We've just returned from a six week Europe adventure and our last stop was Geneva where we found this little gem (on TA). What a gorgeous place! The colour of the decor, the friendly staff, the incredibly well thought out room, all the extra things they think of, I'm not sure what my favourite thing was! I loved the Nespresso in the room, I loved the great big shower and the fluffy towels. Loved the cookies on the bed with the weather report each night. Everything about our stay was perfect. We even had room service a couple of times and it was fast and delicious. If you're going to Geneva this is the place to stay. It's so close to everything and you'll understand as soon as walk in the door - sheer class all the way! Oh BTW the cleaning staff are probably the best we've ever seen. Our room was immaculate and our toiletries were all placed on a face towel with such precision! Brilliant!

Room Tip: The rooms are all good!

In a very overpriced city this is a little gem! Lovely relaxed hotel with designer deco and great perks in the room this is a great option. After visiting other 5 star hotels here - can't really justify their prices!

Room Tip: Breakfast is pricey - nice patisserie nearby

For our last night in Geneva, we had dinner at the restaurant at Eastwest. It was delicious! The moelleux au chocolat we had for dessert was a perfect way to end our trip on a high note. There was one other person there for dinner so we definitely would consider this restaurant, tucked in a little corner of the hotel, a true hidden gem.

Great hotel I stayed in a single room. Beautiful linens tassimo machine box of welcome chocolates great toiletries. Room was small but so cozy beautiful bathroom great friendly staff also. Two streets away is the red light district I found out safe to walk though. No one bothered me as a solo woman traveler. Great bakery across the street for breakfast loved their croissants! Ate here instead of hotel restaurant pricey as most everything is in Geneva! Hotel close to Brunswick monument and waterfront approximetely 3 blocks Geneva is a beautiful city old town a must enjoyed walking bring comfy shoes lots of old cobblestone streets great chocolate at gelle Geneva finest the display window is a work of art. I walked everywhere did not use free bus card hotel provided. One of the prettiest cities I have travelled to.

Staying here just for a night and writing this from the room itself - using the very efficient and free wi fi provided with the room. It is a member of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World - and very deservedly so.
Thanks to the reviews I came here and would like to say that if any one wants a hotel to stay in Geneva this is the ONLY choice - unless one wants a big name like Mandarin Oriental or Kempinsky!
Today is a Sunday and the breakfast will be served until 2 pm - a first time experience for an avid traveller like me!
However, the taxi from station to the hotel is 15 CHF and not 35 as I read in one review. Yes taxi charges are unreal in Switzerland - what I paid on taxis in St Moritz, Zurich and Geneva - I could have rented a car for one month! Public transport is very good but NO ENGLISH usage at all.

We stayed at Eastwest because it was in a convenient location and a fair value in a very, very expensive city. We were made welcome, the room was a real haven, and you sighed with relaxation every time you walked in the door. The decor was elegant yet inviting. The people were nice, the food delicious, the location perfect for walking to anything you wanted to see. And slippers. I always love it when they have slippers. If we return to Geneva we would definitely look forward to staying here, and we would recommend it without qualification.

We stayed one night here due to TripAdvisor ratings and the relatively inexpensive price (for Geneva) and were not disappointed! Great lobby, friendly staff, the bartender was knowledgable and great to talk to. The room was spacious and very comfortable, plus quiet and clean! And the location can't be beat - agree with other posters that there are a few streets between the train station and here that are slightly sketchy but if you stick to Rue de Alpes you're completely fine. Very close to train and to the water's edge - be sure to cross over into the old city!This hotel is a definite gem in a sea of overpriced hotels and we really enjoyed our stay!
