    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    My flight from TPE to Paris, more than 13 hours, was actually longer than scheduled, due to strong wind. half hour delay in arriving, and after arrival, long ques for custom, 30-40 mins. My luggage came out soon, and I headed toward Terminal 2 (from 1, international flights) right away. Tram was very crowded, I did not waste time along the way, but …

    Graham met another trathlete on the campsite and they decided to travel on the 7.30 bus into Geneva. An early start with number tattoos applied , sun cream on and pre race breakfast. I delivered them to the bus stop and went back to see if there was any other signs of life at base camp. Slowly the campers emerged and prepared themselves for the day ahead in the hot sun, We failed to get to the bus stop by 10am as planned so had to wait another half ann ...

    ... at the "beach", in the middle of Lake Geneva. As it was a beautiful day there was quite a crowd there but we found a spot for us, and spent a couple of hours there swimming, sunning and snoozing. Everywhere we seem to go there is some sort of event, Geneva is hosting the 2015 European Triathlon Championships. There was people everywhere. We found our bus back to the hotel, easily this time, and with the free tickets you get at the hotel, we haven't had to pay for any of the ...

    ... we would take them back to the campsite by car as it is uphill from the city and navigating through the Geneva streets could be tricky, so it was a case of dismantling the tandem in the underground car park and putting it on the roof rack this was all very complicated and technical. I was panicking because I paid for the car park which was mega bucks and If you don't go out within a certain time it might not accept ...

Through out the city they have bins for for aluminum cans and glass bottles. We just haven't found anything for paper. Anyways this morning we walked over to drop off our plastics at the grocery. They had piled up quite high since the closes grocery ...
