    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Bristol Geneva

    Pleasant Stay

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    ... Ibis.

    We ended up getting to the hotel at about 8 PM, so didn't have time to go back into town for dinner and to see the city. It was a bit of a bugger considering we won't have time tomorrow as we are at CERN all day. Instead, we went next door to a nice Italian place. I had an awesome risotto, and many of the others got other fantastic looking pasta dishes and pizzas.

    ... Mike was coming from another business venture. He arrived first, I got there an hour later and Tamar was an hour after me. We stayed at a short-term apartment rental which was very well located to Mike's conference and the downtown area. Sunday was spent checking in, walking around, getting our bearings, finding groceries, and wine of course.

    My big surprise for Geneva is that they totally speak French there. Not just the guys at the U.N., no, ...

    Lamoura

    After a really pleasant morning in Lyon, we set out on our drive to Lamoura. However . . . the car's navigation went bonkers so we ended up winging it for much of the way. I think that she had problems finding enough satelites. Maybe something to do the mountains?? We call the sat nav Maj. Jo decided early on that her voice had a somewhat pompous air - almost regal, we thought(!). We tried a few names out but the one that stuck was Maj. ...

    After a 9.5 hour flight to Frankfurt, a long bus ride at the airport to the next plane, and a short 50 minute flight, we are in Geneva. Figured out how to take a bus to the hotel, overpaid, arrived and finally got our room. Slight problem with our reservation - they had us down for 2 people only. Kids will have to sleep outside in the rain ;-) --- Went downtown and joined a festival... Walked around, ate drank, got wet, and enjoyed the fireworks... Everyone is beat... Off to ...

    ... I will be able to go to many show this summer! I am looking forward to it!



    Dans un registre complétement différent du concert de vendredi dernier, je suis allée voir Kotaro Fukama. C’est un pianiste et ce soir il jouait en solo. Depuis quelques années il a remporté pas mal de prix dans différentes compétitions. Alors moi, je n’y connais rien mais apparemment ça envoie du lourd. Il y a des gens qui parlaient de lui en ...
