Travel Blogs from Geneva
We arrived in Geneva after traveling 9 hours via Regina to Calgary (plus 45 minutes on tarmac waiting for flight crew to arrive from Vancouver) to Frankfurt, Germany and 1 hour from Frankfurt to Geneva (Lufthansa Air - code shared flight with Air Canada (AC) - very good English speaking German flight attendants). AC wasn't too bad, other than the …
... off the route descriptions from our e-guidebook (we have the hard copy of the book but left it at home to save weight), finding out how it differs from the GPS tracks, which unfortunately is significantly. So we have a highlighter to colour in the areas to look out for on our 1:200,000 map (1cm=2km). Oh yeah, this is going to be fun... Our laundry has finished drying, so at least for this next stage, we will start off fresh and ...
... inside were all booked out, but we think we saw some hadrons... We were interested to find out that the 27km circumference underground tunnel doesn't go under the mountains at all - just under the countryside near Geneva. Apparently it's 100m below the ground! We found ourselves standing above the Atlas detector. We enjoyed reading and hearing about how they use the accelerator to re-create the high-energy environment shortly after the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Edelweiss - Manotel Geneva
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.
Home from home
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.
We have been in this Hotel for our Anniversary and we can't find a better place to stay than this Hotel.
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.
