Stayed at the East West hotel for a long weekend. The location is excellent for everything you will want to see in Geneva and only a short walk from the train station so getting there from the airport was very quick and easy.
The hotel itself was beautiful, immaculately clean and very atmospheric with the deep colours and subdued lighting. There was a wonderful bathroom with very nice complimentary toilettries and lots of nice little touches like a cake left for you when the room was turned down for the evening.
The breakfast was included in our room rate and there was a good variety of all the things you would expect available. As Geneva is very, very expensive, I would suggest that you try to negotiate a rate that includes breakfast so you don't have to pay for it on top of room rate. The hotel is also well located for a choice of places to eat out in the evening and finding something suitable shouldn't be a problem.
One minor problem with our room was that the Nespresso coffee machine did not work at all and although we reported this it was not fixed during our stay.
The only really negative thing I have to say about our stay is that the noise from the street outside was really disruptive and meant that we didn't get a full nights sleep on any of the nights we were there. I am by no means a light sleeper but even after buying ear-plugs for nights 2 and 3 of our stay, I was still woken up with the noise from outside around 3-4am.
On the Friday and Saturday night it was mostly people shouting in the street. I presume this was because there were either pubs or late night food shops nearby. On the Sunday night / Monday morning it was the noise from traffic that was a problem, I think this may have been lorries delivering to some of the surrounding businesses.
I'm surprised no other reviewer has mentioned this fact so maybe we were just unlucky but it would definitely make me think twice before booking this hotel again. The majority of the rooms at the hotel face on to the street so I think it would be difficult to request a room that would guarantee this wouldn't be an issue.
