... were ice caves. We thought we were going to naturally occurring ones, but no, they are actually drilled out each season. Artists sculpt the ice into tables, chairs, polar bears, stuff like that. We lost two people on the tour which the guide was quite upset about. He had mentioned it was a 200 euro taxi fare back from Chamonix to Geneva! But there were initially four people who were initially missing from our leaving point. As we ...
... inside were all booked out, but we think we saw some hadrons... We were interested to find out that the 27km circumference underground tunnel doesn't go under the mountains at all - just under the countryside near Geneva. Apparently it's 100m below the ground! We found ourselves standing above the Atlas detector. We enjoyed reading and hearing about how they use the accelerator to re-create the high-energy environment shortly after the ...
... some main roads near Ouchy, but there was almost always a cycle path or cycle lane - definitely better than yesterday! We discovered a patisserie in the medieval town of St Prex, where we had yummy chocolate croissants! The rain came and went throughout the day, just enough to make sure that we were completely soaked before it cleared up. And every so often, our shadows would return as the sun caressed our dripping clothes, and returned a little bit ...
... of high rise buildings. All seem to have been built to tie in with the old town buildings within the city.
Tomorrow we leave for St Michel de Maurienne in the heart of French Alps cycling.
My last ride in Annecy tomorrow morning is a challenge with four Cols in total before meeting up with Mich in Thones.
Hope the weather improves.
We woke up planning to go to Gruyere and Broc which are places where they make some cheese and chocolate. The rainy weather sidelined those plans until tomorrow though. We decided to drive down to Annecy in the French Alps and then stop by Yvoire. Yvoire is on the French side of Lake Geneva and is a medieval village.
It took us about an hour to get to Annecy, which they call "The small Venice of the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Bristol Geneva
The hotel, rooms and location is great for the city, although the street the hotel is facing is rather busy. I tend to agree with the comments on breakfast - the only good thing about the breakfast was the live music that was provided to help flush down the food.... Not sure if this is still the tradition
Great hotel shame about the breakfast
We as a family stayed at the bristol and found it to a great hotel with views and service that matched to what we expected , the rooms are spotless and and the staff are fautless,BUT we then tried breakfast at 32 euros and it was terrable, not 4 star (this was british motorway serice station food cira 1978) sorry but cold baon, limp pink sauages and cook your own toast is not 4 star in my book,
I will be staying at the Bristol again but save my cash and use one of the many near by coffee shops
Very comfortable hotel
My room was quite spacious and the hotel is in a good location-a block from the lake and within walking distance to the old town and shopping and the rail station. As a woman travelling alone, I found it safe. The staff was very helpful and I loved the heavy room key that one leaves at the front desk--a touch of the old world.
This Really Is A Charming Hotel
We stayed at the hotel 18th to 21st November 2004. I'm already having withdrawel symptoms! The staff were very friendly and we had a large, clean and spacious room with nice little extras like bathrobes and slippers. The location was great, within walking distance of the lake and restaurants etc. The hotel description of it being 'charming' is quite apt. How many times do you have your breakfast while a harpist plays? I used the gym on a couple of occasions. It was small but quite adequate. The sauna looked pretty good though I did not use it. All in all a nice hotel with pleasant staff. I would definitely stay at this hotel again.
Great location average hotel
Good points :This hotel has an amazing location. All points of interest are withing walking distance. The reception was courteous and attentive. Bad points: I travel around the world quite a bit and this hotel had the most uncomfortable mattress and pillows I ever slept on. Also, I think the walls are not insulated and you can hear everything!!!
Nevertheless, the room was clean and they had a decent breakfast which you don't find in Europe a lot.
Lovely Serene Hotel and Good Location
It was a treat to stay here after a long journey from Geneva through Venice, Tuscany, Rome and the Italian Riviera then back through the Alps to Geneva. The hotel staff were professional, kind and considerate. The hotel was quiet and soothing. We did not have a chance to use the health facilities. However, we did view them and they were superb!
Looks like a safe hotel for women travelling alone. The rooms are set up w/ lots of storage. Bathrobes and slippes were provided. The location, a few steps around the corner from the lake, make it ideal. Lots of nice dining nearby. Room service for breakfast on our balcony (albeit cramped w/ the low awning) overlooking the courtyard was a sweet ending. Room 705 - very nice!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Comfortable, central, and clean
We stayed here for just the the 1 night. Having travelled by rail from Paris. all we wanted was somewhere walking distance from the station with a good shower and a quite comfortanle room. This hotel hot the spot on alla occassions. The shower was a tad small... but the water was nice and hot with good pressure (for once).
I actually really enjoyed the breakie... but I didn't order any cooked. The cold breakfast included yoghurts, fruit, toast, and good coffee. It was a refreshing change from bread and chocolate spread. If your looking for something uninspiring and basic but clean and cetral then this will do just fine.
Good location, terrible breakfast
Recently stayed at Hotel Bristol whilst attending a conference at Unimail. The hotel is in a very good location and clean. I had a very pleasant and quiet room with good facilties. Unfortunately the breakfast was extemely poor. I paid £15 a head for cold bacon and scambled eggs. (I cannot eat bread or pastries so the cooked part of the breakfast was important to me). When I complained I got a poor and rude response from the reception area - something you don't expect at a good 4 star establishment. Overall I would say that the Hotel Bristol is riding on its reputation as one of the older more established hotels in Geneva. It needs to improve the service - and certainly the food - if it expects to charge high rates. I would not stay here again!
Good Location, very clean
This hotel was priced well for a Geneva four star. Most hotels there did not include breakfast. The room was large and very very clean, as were the bathrooms immaculate. It was a great location to tour from, and we did not spend much time in the room or at the hotel, as this is a walking city. WOuld recommend it.
