    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Bristol Geneva

    Pleasant Stay


    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.

    We were both rather comatose as we showered and got ready to leave the hotel. Our bags, including the wine suitcase, were all closed and ready to go from the night before. We ended up with 14 bottles of wine (12 in the carrier), and one of vermouth; we somehow managed to squeeze the ...

    ... The confessionals were obvious. Although there weren't the typical booths. There were the enclosed part for the priest but instead of an enclosed part for the person it appeared that they just spoke into some sorta of microphone and piece to listen into. Anyone else know what they other booths would be? There were a priest sitting in them behind a plexiglass. There was one women talking at these booths and she just stood at ...
