We stayed at the Eastwest twice during a trip in May/June 2012. We loved both rooms (one street-side, and one courtyard-side). If you like modern design that is still cozy, this is your spot! The location was fantastic, with proximity to the water, various neighborhoods, and the train station. The staff was friendly and helpful as well. We will definitely stay here again!

We spent two nights at the EastWest Hotel, Geneva in early September, our first stop on a longer European trip. We arrived early in the morning with the usual trans-Atlantic journey ills: limited sleep and that generally awful jet-lagged feeling. The hotel staff was very accommodating and provided us access to our room shortly after arrival (we had not booked the additional “night before” arrival in order to be guaranteed an early check-in). The hotel is a modern, chic, boutique style property with a charming breakfast/bar area off of the reception area. Our room was comfortable, clean and the bathroom stocked with reasonably sophisticated toiletries. There was also a Nespresso coffee maker. The hotel’s location was perfect for us – two blocks from the lake, the Grand Hotels and a water taxi stop -- but other travelers should be aware that within a few meters of the hotel the neighborhood changes significantly, with a high concentration of brothels and streetwalkers. For us, this was a colorful, safe, backdrop and we did not encounter any problems whatsoever. We highly recommend the EastWest Hotel, and will return there on our next visit to Geneva.

I stayed at the EastWest on business earlier this year and had a fantastic stay. The hotel was plush, clean and conveniently located right near to Lake Geneva. The station is only a 5 minute walk away with plenty of taxis available also.

The hotel is unfortunately situated rather close to the red light district, so plan your journey to spare your blushes!

I had a fantastic stay at the Eastwest hotel and will definitely stay here again when next in Geneva!

I am reluctant to review the downside for me personally of this hotel as our overall experience was delightful. Our room was nicely appointed and beds were very comfortable. The staff from the doorman all the way up were all so very nice and always served us with pleasure. The negatives for us were the location, as we are seniors so we required a taxi to get over to the Old Town which was a costly addition. And the real problem for us was our street facing room that was terrifically noisy all night long over the weekend.
On the uptick however, is that the restaurant was very good and we dined there twice. For us, we would be better located in the Old Town across the bridges where we close to the restaurants.

We stayed at the EastWest hotel en route to Sion, and therefore only stayed 1 night. However we enjoyed the hotel so much we wished we were staying longer. The hotel is very well equiped and the staff were friendly and very helpful. The hotel is very well placed to visit the all parts of the city and there are some fantastic restaurants close by. We will certainly return to the EastWest soon, I highly recommend this as a place to stay when visiting Geneva.

My partner and I stayed at this hotel on a short break in Geneva last month. We had a "normal" room but it was plenty big enough for us - a beautiful clean, well stocked bathroom, big comfy bed, nespresso machine, tv, safe, minibar - you couldn't ask for more! The reception staff were really helpful, providing maps and recommendations for eating out and travel around the city. The hotel was almost literally a stone's throw from the lake and the yellow and red taxi boats so we felt close enough to everything without it being on top of you.
The food always smelled really good though we chose to eat out (personal choice, nothing against the hotel).
You are only 5 minutes walk from the station and with the cards the hotel give you it's a free train ride to the airport making our trip home a breeze. Only tip is, check the map carefully otherwise there is a rather interesting detour you might find yourself making through the red light district - even on a Sunday morning there were, erm, "workers" looking for their next paycheck... Not intimidating and no-one bothered us but maybe worth noting for those who like to wander in a new city like us!
All in all a lovely hotel and in a great position and we'd definitely stay here again.

Granted we booked their top suite but were v impressed! Stunning decor, bathroom and huge bed! Over two floors, felt more like our own apartment with personal garden! Just gorgeous! Booked another room for mum- beautiful pink room all with mod-cons! Popped down to the bar for a bottle of fizz- staff lovely! Didn't eat there until breakfast which was expensive for breakfast but again v nice! My only complaint was noise at night time in the smoking area but apart from that abs fabulous! Def recommend
