      Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Edelweiss - Manotel Geneva

      The only thing missing is Heidi!

      from

      Nice hotel, very friendly staff, & very clean. A little too much of the Edelweiss theme - alpine flowers painted everywhere, soft St.Bernard dogs on all round reception and restaurant.

      Rooms at back of hotel nice & quiet - but a word advice - Make sure you don't get allocated a room number ending in '6' - i.e 426 - these are right beside the lift shaft and are small rooms.

      The hotel didn't offer a choice of smoking or non-smoking room - if you want non-smoking, you need to ask.

      Breakfast is fine, but nothing to write home about. Boiled eggs, a few cereals, and a bit of fresh fruit salad - straight out of the tin!

      Hotel is very convenient to rail station and lake & is competitively priced for Geneva.

      One of advantages of Trip Advisor is finding jewels like this. 3 minutes from the lake. Lots of character. Lovely staff. Lovely clean, homely room and very good value by Geneva standards. 5 stars, and I am fussy!

      You can't go wrong here

      from

      This is an excellent hotel, full of swiss atmosphere, clean, nice rooms, very courteous staff and great value for money considering it is in an excellent position. It is 5 minutes walk to the railway station and 5 minutes to the lake. You can even walk over the bridge into the Old Town in around 15 minutes. The Swiss Chalet style is charming and there is an aromatic smell everywhere. The Swiss restaurant is wonderful. Highly recommended.

      Swiss lovely Chalet

      from

      We have been in this Hotel for our Anniversary and we can't find a better place to stay than this Hotel.

      I asked flowers for the 14 Feb. 2005 for a present to my wife and I had it, asked room service different time and I had it (no extra charge for this)...really this is one of the best Hotel where I stay during all my trip, not big Hotel and not too small, all the staff was very very very friendly and helpfull.

      The restaurant is a special place to spend a night to listen the Swiss Music and to see the Swisss Show with all the different Swiss instrument, I suggest this Hotel to anyone becasue if when you travel you like to feel at your home this is the place for you.

      I forgot one thing...all the atmosphere in the Hotel is like a Swiss Chalet, all the staff and the maid have the tipical swiss dress.

      We came back in this Hotel again in the next future!!!!!

      Great Hotel near the Lake

      from

      Lovely hotel. Staff were very friendly and helpful. We went the week before Christmas 2004 and the restaurant was very busy, but the service and food were excellent. The live entertainment added to the restaurant atmosphere. Less than 5 minutes from the lakeside and about 20 minutes into the town. Would recommend to others and would stay there again.

      Great place

      from

      We stayed at Manotel Edelweiss in September 2004. The hotel is relatively small and narrow and thus the rooms and hallways are somewhat confined. However, we greatly enjoyed our time there - clean with modern bathrooms, nice decor, quiet, and has helpful staff and a decent but not spectacular complimentary breakfast. The location is convenient to central geneva and is perhaps 400 meters from the RR station. It is about two blocks back from the lakefront behind the larger upscale hotels. A short hike of 15 min. puts you in the in the center of the main shopping district. One tip...ask directions to the Cafe Arts which is 3 blocks away, very informal, and serves remarkably good food for the price, particularly if you like salads.

      Great Hotel

      Having read a previous review, we booked the Manotel Edelweiss and were not disappointed. The location was very convenient for the main railway station and just a few minutes from the Lake. Our room was spacious and well appointed with a good bathroom. Both were spotless with all linen being changed every day. Breakfast was good and the restaurant served good food with folk entertainment in the evenings(imagine Elvis with yodelling!!). Once was ok! Staff were friendly and helpful. We can thoroughly recommend the Edelweiss.

      Great Hotel

      This is a great hotel, can't believe it only has 3 stars. Good sized, well-equipped rooms and bathrooms. Cleaned to a high standard, it has everything you need for a business or leisure stay. Swiss chalet decor is a little strange in a modern building but very well done and at least it isn't a bland, anonymous chain. Friendly service, good restaurant - although the 'folklore' evenings might mean once is enough! 10 minutes walk from the station, 5 minutes from the lake. We'd go back without hesitation.

      A Swiss Chalet

      from

      This is a great hotel, definately one of the best I have stayed in (even better than some 5 star). The locaion is brilliant, the staff are very friendly and the rooms are a good size, very clean, with decent bathrooms. If you are on the right side, you can even see the mountains from your window. Overall, an excellent hotel, I owuld definately recommend it.

      Great Hotel

      from

      Stayed in the Hotel Edelweiss for two nights before and after a skiing vacation and found it to be modern and clean but also very Swiss and quaint with lots of wood and wonderful Swizz charm. The food was excellent and the location is central and very convenient. The staff were very helpful and friendly and even made tea for us at silly o'clock in the morning prior to our return flight. No hesitation at all in recommending this hotel to anyone. Look out for special pice offers, we got a great deal on this hotel though British Airways including flights.

I went on a little stroll along the lake with some other students, and we wandered through our neighborhood, seeing if we could get back on our own. There are so many bourgie stores near us: Louis Vuitton, Cartier, Dior, Hermes, etc. I have never seen so many watches in my life... Now everyone is just making dinner and hanging ...

      I am pleased to report that after 13 hours of traveling (2 hours at airport before first flight, 1.5 hour flight, 5 hour layover, 8 hour flight, 1 hour at baggage claim, and a 0.5 hour bus ride), I am officially studying abroad in Geneva! My roommate, Nikki, is delightful and almost as drowsy from jet lag as I am. Our room is outfitted entirely in Ikea furniture/sheets/rolled up pillows. It's all very white with a few hints of black and gray. ...

We arrived late and took the shuttle over the border to France and stayed at the Novotel. Dinner was late and we didn't get the kids to bed until midnight. They were so amazed by the tiny patches of snow when we arrived, it made them very excited, so after dinner it took a little while to calm them down.

      Finally, around 3:00 I made my way back to the room, finding Joe just waking up. Feeling better, he was game to venture outside. Back to the lake we went, eventually finding another peaceful place to sit and take in the view. After the long nap he felt almost 100%--good news!

      We found a wonderful outdoor restaurant overlooking the lake and got a table beside the ...
