Starts with pics from Trafalgar Square and Covent Garden on Christmas Eve then Geneva!
... we started getting glimpses of the mountain through the clouds, but it was not the one we had gone to see. Perhaps we will see it on our ride. On our return to Geneva, we have started our preparations for the next ride. Doing our homework on the night before. That's generally how we do things. For the first time we are not following signs and we don't have a little map pack with relatively detailed maps to follow. So we are ...
... the room had a completely new aroma, that of strong cleaning products. That evening, inspired by the cleaners less than subtle hint that we smell bad, we found a nearby coin laundry. We were looking for a place for dinner and it just so happened to be near a Thai place. I'd been day dreaming of pad Thai for a while now, but we haven't come across any Thai places. But not only did we find one, but it was called "Pad Thai". Dinner was ...
... done so far. Then down... Surprisingly, my legs weren't feeling too bad. I think the skins work! Despite our less than enthusiastic start, today's riding was a vast improvement on yesterday's. We had views, very little traffic, and only light rain! Also, it was our last day of riding before two rest days in Geneva! The hills were slow-going - it took an hour to cover the first 10km! Fortunately, the terrain became a little flatter later on. We ...

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.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Admiral Geneva
Liked the decor,parking a little difficult with the one way system to get to the parking garage,but OK once I was used to the one way.Street parking a no no as there are not enough spaces near the hotel,have to use the garage parking which is literally around the corner,so no problem.
Room had a fan which was needed as it was very warm when we visited.
Staff are friendly and efficient,and they speak English.
This small, charming hotel was a great find
We really enjoyed our stay here at the Hotel Admiral. The breakfast buffet was excellent. Lots of breakfast choices, including eggs, pastry, cheeses, cereal, fruit, meats, etc. The oatmeal and breads were delicious. We just kept raving about it all day. Did¨'t need to eat again until dinner! The bed was very comfortable. The room was small but clean and well decorated. Free internet access was a bonus.
Great stay, great value
I recently stayed for 8 nights at the Hotel Admiral, and had a very pleasant time. The hotel is almost new, with tasteful decor and well appointed rooms. The room I had was not large, but it made the most of the space available, and being at the rear of the building it was quiet even with the window open. Staff were always courteous and efficient. Good location 3 minutes walk from the main rail and tram/bus networks.
The main advantages: free wifi internet, nice continental breakfast included. The disadvantages: it is located in Geneva's red light district, which was never a problem but may be off-putting to families.
Thoroughly recommended for business travellers.
Nice, Clean & Convenient
This little Hotel is very convenient to the train station as well as the Old Town of Geneva. The bed was very comfortable and staff very helpful. I loved that fact that they offer free internet access, plus WIFi is available to guests as well. A nice breakfast with lots of choices is set up for guest as well.
The only thing that bugged me was that the ceiling fan in my room needed serious dusting. Laying on the bed looking up at the ceiling it's all I noticed.
After receiving several email confirmations for Hotel Admiral, I was told when I got there that some other customers missed their flight and therefore they had no rooms available. They arranged a hotel room for us 2 blocks away at a nasty hotel the hotel Admiral concierge referred to as their "sister hotel, just as nice with bigger rooms." HORRIBLE. Anyway, after going back to the Admiral and throwing a fit, the concierge somehow "found" an available room. After that I will say that the hotel stay was very nice. The hotel is modern and very clean and the afternoon and night concierges were very nice and informative and there's free internet. One thing to note though, while it's a plus that the hotel is a 5 minute walk from the train station, the area is still shady and the hotel is on a borderline shady block right next door to a porn shop. If you don't need to be close to the train station I would recommend staying on the other side of the water, which is MUCH classier and where most of the sites are anyway.
Oasis of service
Great little hotel 300 metres from the railway station is a sensation. Quiet, great staff, superb service - this place was an oasis for me after a fraught experience in Paris with another hotel. Close to all you need including great views of the lake, I'd recommend the Admiral to anyone!
I stayed at the Hotel Admiral for one night recently, at the beginning of a business trip in Europe. As a single female traveler, I was a little bit nervous about the mention of this hotel being so close to the red light district. Indeed, there is some sort of x-rated establishment just next door. But the hotel itself is very clean, attractive, and quiet, and I would definitely stay there again. The area around the hotel is bustling and lively, with lots of international restaurants and people heading to and from the train station, and I felt perfectly comfortable.
We had a great experience at the Admiral Hotel in Geneva. The hotel is very conveniently located near the main train station and it is just a few minutes walk. As all the rooms are non-smoking we greatly appreciated the atmosphere. This is a real selling point to Americans. The hotel is very quiet as it is located on a side street. There are black out curtains so the rooms are nice and dark. The breakfast buffet is absolutely grand and beautifully presented. If one eats a big breakfast you would only need a sandwich later on in the day. The owner is charming and was very gracious. I was in the reception room with my luggage for a couple of hours awaiting someone and he had a coffee prepared for me. I would heartlly recommend this hotel. Eventhough it is only a three star I consider it a four.
The Hotel Admiral at first was a bit shocking for me and my family, as we drove into Geneva to find the hotel.
Love the Hotel and the Staff
I have made a very long stay at the Hotel Admiral in Geneva and must admit that throughout all the duration of my stay, service and quality was constant without any change.
The Hotel is new, I mean bran new !!!
What a nice decoration and cosy atmosphere.
Oh, very important and not to forget, there is an Internet corner and WIFI in the rooms.
Last but not least, there's a very rich buffet breakfast that will satisfy the most demanding !!!
