The only thing missing is Heidi!
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
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
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.
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.
A Swiss Chalet
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.
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 …
Of course as we knew this was our last day in Europe. Without hesitation for me this was the best day overall. It literally flew by in the blink of an eye. We woke up and headed the French Alps. Still I am surprised how we just drive in and out of countries without hesitation. Ariving at The Alps we got together, and got our tickets and headed to the cable cars. Overall this was an amazing experience that ...
... warmer. I decided to try going out for a little bit. When I walked outside it was so cold and breathing was a little easier outside. I tried to see if the next cable car was coming soon and they said it was another 30 minutes. WHAT! I was having trouble breathing at this point but I waited for the cable car.
When we go to the bottom of the mountain. I shopped a little at the store next to the cable car. I also tried going into the town to shop ...
... women play in the WTO. Antonia made a joke that many men believed she was just a secretary. The presentation did not extend the hour we were supposed to be there. It seemed as though everyone was on a tight time frame. I had the honor of presenting Antonia with a small gift from us. She seemed very surprised. I was a little taken back by her reaction. She was very thankful, but at the same time very surprised by our small gesture. I know she liked it, but why was she ...
... this strange guy anymore so as soon as she finished eating we got up and decided to go for a walk. We walked for about five minutes and decided to go back to the bar to see if he had left, he did so we went inside and had two more rounds before heading back to our hotel. On our way back to the hotel we saw a car crash! It completely shut down the driving bridge forcing cars to instead cross on the pedestrian bridge. The police officers handled it very well and had the ...
