“Wonderful amenities for a good price!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 5, 2012

I made arrangements to stay four nights at the Suite Novotel Geneve sight unseen because hotels I had used previously were booked. I was surprised to receive discounts that I hadn't expected because of the four night stay - a pleasant surprise!

When we arrived, taking the bus from the airport was easy and free with a free ticket available before leaving the baggage claim area. Once at the hotel, check-in went smoothly -- the hotel allowed me to select either US $ or CHF for the credit card payment.

The suite itself was great! We had a comfortable queen sized bed with two smaller beds that would have been suitable for children if we had them. One slid out from under the queen sized bed and the other doubled as a couch. A table, chair, and kitchenette joined a separate room for the closet and a large bath with both a shower stall and large tub. All the basic comforts!

The hotel is right across the street from a large shopping mall and there is easy access to the trams that take you downtown (only 4-6 stops depending where you're going). All in all, we thought this was a wonderful, clean, modern, affordable option for staying in Geneva.

My three friends and I stayed at the Suite Novotel and it was perfect for us! Rooms were spacious and super compfy, and had a microwave and fridge which was great. Geneva is expensive, so keeping some snacks in the mini-kitchen was helpful. The location is 10 minutes from the airport by bus, and 10 minutes to downtown by bus. There is a HUGE mall right across the street with restaurants and a great grocery store we went to every day.
The hotel staff was very friendly and gave us free 3-day public transportation passes. This was awesome to have, and saved us some money! Something I would recommend: go to the Tourist center downtown to get suggestions for restaurants and things to do. The hotel isn't the best for that because they want you to go to their restaurant, and don't really have an ideas for you.

Stayed August 2012, traveled as a couple

Arrived and welcome was friendly. Placed in a room on the same floor as reception opposite the lifts so a bit noisy. This room is designed for wheelchair customers so no bath.

Mattresses are a bit hard so struggled to get a good nights sleep.

The hotel is 6 stops on the number 10 bus from the airport. Only took me 15 mins from leaving the airport to getting to the hotel.

There is a restaurant attached to the hotel (The Swiss Bistro) which I ventured into. Wish I read an earlier review, it was wasn't good. I ordered the beef cheeks braised in red wine with buttered tagliatelle. Beef was tough and had not been cooked long enough. I complained and was told no one else has [complained] so it must be ok. Didn't even get the manager to come and ask why. Would avoid next time.

Overall it fits into the other Novotels I've stayed at in terms of decor and service.

Room Tip: Not the ground or hotel lobby room 1 and 2 they are opposite the lift/elevator. Also they don't...

Stayed in the hotel in Oct 2012 with 2 young children.The front desk was very helpful,We reached only at midnight due to our flight and had no problem checking in.On arrival we got our Room keys and travel passes for the 3 days we stayed.The travel pass covers all buses,Trains and trams and boats within city limits.We had to pay around 13 Swiss Frank for City tax at the front desk as I think its quiet normal in all Swiss hotels.The room was very comfortable with a queen size double bed and 2 single beds.Children were so happy and the linen was of really good quality.The room had blackout blinds ,so it was really nice and Cosy.Room is really spacious and was cleaned daily.The Toilet is seperate from the Bathroom which is very good because the toilet could be used when the kids are taking shower or bath.

Also there is a bus number 10 which leaves the airport and stops right in front of the hotel.As such the hotel doesn't have any shuttle because of bus number 10.Once you collect your baggage there is a machine from which u take a ticket for free for the bus.It is valid for upto 90 minutes after u collect it.Very good.Once you collect your baggage follow directions for bus ,not shuttle bus,as we followed shuttle bus and totally got lost.And make sure you wait at the stop which has number 10 written.There are about 3 bus stops outside for different buses.The bus stop for 10 is on its own about 100 meters from the other 2 bus stops.We missed 2 buses because we were waiting in the other bus stop which was for 5.

The only downside was the Breakfast as there was no hot food,only hot stuff was the toast and of course tea and coffee.There was no eggs,hash-browns or baked beans or nothing like that.We were so disappointed as we had no choice other than a slice of toast and cereal with cold milk.Cereal selection was poor as well as there was only cornflakes and some other chocolate based cereal.There was a fruit basket jus with apples and some yogurt.Jus opposite to the hotel is a huge shopping mall and if you choose a room with no breakfast I would highly recommend just to cross the road and have it in the mall as you can surely get something hot.

The gym was in a small room with just cross trainer I think,nothing else.So don't have high hopes!!!

Overall the stay was pleasant.Very easily accessible from airport,good transport connection to and fro airport and also to city centre.Will highly recommend it.

Room Tip: We were given a room facing the mall and it was quiet nice.No complaints.

Good location with easy access to the airport. Direct bus from outside airport to opposite hotel (with free transportation ticket upon arrival at the airport) and then free public transport ticket for your stay, allowing you to take the bus from outside the hotel back to the airport.

Rooms were large and clean and the power shower was excellent.

Breakfast is terrible and expensive for a few pieces of old bread and some watered down coffee. There are plenty of choices near by, in the mall opposite or even at the airport/at the train station or in the town itself. Do not waste your money on breakfast at this hotel.

Room Tip: Request a garden view room. There is little noise on this side of the building if you prefer to slee...

We have chosen this hotel due to its proximity to the airport (5 min drive), having a morning flihgt to catch.
Though we selected the biggest room they seemed to have (a Superior Suite), it was rather small for the 4 of us. However, the modern design was very practical, and made the stay bearable. A number of small a simple details were simply genious: a curtain to divide the room into 2, TV on a wheeled pedestal, a table just of right size, also on wheels - we could rearrange the room for each time of day. Still, very small bathroom and toilet ("airplane style", but separated), and almost no wardrobe space.
Welcome present for kids. Reasonable breakfast. Fast and free Internet. Public transportation down the street, free for hotel guests (15-20 min to the center). And a huge shopping center just across the road.
Got a very reasonable price (booked in advance) with the only disappointment of high parking price that you cannot avoid. Good for a night or two, but not more.
