This hotel was recommended to us by a Geneva resident. We were travelling back from a ski resort, and needed a place to stay for just one night. We got lost trying to find the hotel, called them up and they were very cool about keeping us on the line and directing us pretty much to the door. Very friendly reception ladies, valet parked our car for us. Room was lovely - one of the most comfortable beds we've slept in for a very long time. Furnishing is very modern, and has a Schrager-style to it (like Royalton in NYC, or Sanderson in London), but nicer because it is a boutique hotel, not a zoo.
Nice buffet breakfast - not cheap but they didn't charge for the kids so that worked out OK. We didn't dine in the hotel so I can't comment on the dinner but the menu looked interesting.
Only issue some people might have is the location - whilst it is literally one minute's walk from the Lake, and they provide guests with travel-passes that are good on all the city's public transport including the boats (which we thought was a really nice gesture), the hotel isn't far from the Cornavin railway station, so some of the side-streets are a bit scruffy - but that's scruffy by Geneva standards, which is still pretty clean compared with anywhere else in the world.
Definitely a good place to try.
