Very Charming within easy walking distance from major attractions but not in the thick of the action...

Historical Traveler Reviews Tiffany Hotel Geneva
Séjour très agréable
J'ai passé un excellent séjour à l'Hôtel Tiffany , l'accueil est très agréable. et tout le personnel aimable. Les chambres sont belles et confortables, et le lit était exceptionnel ! Le charme de la décoration, que ce soit des chambres ou du restaurant, est très appréciable. Hôtel très bien situé, au centre de Genève.
Stay only if you like old world European charm!
It is a cosy hotel and the rooms are small. You like old world European charm, Tiffany Hotel is for you. I don't particularly consider it a great place to put up with if you are on business (which I was).
Very cosy hotel!
I stayed at this hotel with my boyfriend for 3 nights over the weekend.We had a really wonderful romantic time there! The hotel is centrally located. Walking distance to the old city and main shopping street. Staffs are very friendly. We really enjoyed our buffet breakfast! Esp the big bowl of fresh fruit salad every morning! :) The hotel is small but very cosy! Highly recommended for everyone!
In need of an overhaul
There are a few nice things to say about this hotel, but very few, and most things feel as if they have been done to cut corners to the limit.
Usually breakfast is not included in the price, and given how awful it was it was kind of painful to pay for it. All of the hotel in is need of refurbushment, not desperately - but for the price one might expect better. The location does not help, as it is close to a lovely area, but the actual roads surrounding remind one of a bad Paris suburb.
So good, but it is very 3-star - do not expect a wonderful gem of a find.
A nice stay
We enjoyed our stay here for 2 nights on our way through Switzerland. The neighbourhood seemed quiet - at least while we were there. Our room was a decent size by Euro standards and very neat and clean. The only thing I had to complain about was that the elevator did not go to the top floor where our room was located so that we had to carry our luggage down to the floor below to catch the elevator! Good thing we were travelling relatively light. There is a "business centre" with free internet access which was great. The staff was friendly enough and helpful with questions. It is a nice short walk to old town and about a 15-20min walk to the train station.
Wonderful haven in the bustle of Geneva
This is so far the best 4 star boutique hotel that I have stayed in...this hotel has spoilt me and I find myself now comparing similar hotels to the attributes of Hotel Tiffany.
As a female travelling alone I stayed for 4 nights at Hotel Tiffany over 2 separate occasions. I had booked the hotel over the Internet and was more than pleasantly surprised at the level of professionalism and service. The hotel has all the attributes of a 4 star establishment but none of the attitude. No request that I made was a big ask and everything was done with a smile and in order to please the guest. The rooms were very clean and had an excellent room service menu. The hotel has a room with a computer with free Internet and printing services. There was also a lovely sitting room with a TV where you could be served snacks and drinks. A bar was also located on the premises and looked very elegant.
I had requested a single room that was slightly small but very nice and my luggage was delivered for me to the room. The hotel is located in an area that is in the nice part of Geneva but away from all the expensive hotels yet close to all the major attractions and museums. I found the staff to be knowledgeable and friendly - they remembered me when I returned several weeks later to stay for 2 further nights. There is also an excellent restaurant on the premises that seems to be frequented by locals and 2 supermarkets nearby as well as many cafes down the street.
Tiffany was OK
My husband and I visited Geneva in February 05 and stayed at The Tiffany Hotel.
The room was small and so was the bathroom but it was clean and the bathroom was very nice. The hotel was charming in a very "old european" way and the location was pretty good. It is near old town so you can walk but the area right around it has nothing to offer.
The staff was nice but not knowledgeable at all. If you know Geneva this is probably a good choice but if you're new to the city (as we are) the staff could not help us with dinner recommendation or fun things to do so we were not impressed.
Excellent experience in Geneve
We hav just arrived from a 4 days stay at this hotel and it was excellent, it was our 5th visit to Geneve and Tiffany Hotel was a real great found, good location and everything was superb, charming, renovated and clean: friendly staff, excellent restaurant and breakfast.
Tthe rooms, always extremally clean, are nice and charming with a great complimentary fruit basket in wich one ( we were a part of four), wonderfull bathrooms.
We will never look for another hotel in Geneve again, we found a treasure.

Charming boutique hotel
Dear friends, I would like to say that in my view (and I have visited and stayed in many hotels ) this is a real treasure in Geneva. The best small hotel in Geneva, with a great art nouveau style, classic but innovative, superb renovated rooms
4 star category with a superb restaurant which is very popular even with the locals. It makes for the best alternative to the famous deluxe hotels that cost twice the price. The location is very central, walking distance to the Lake, the River Rhone and the old medieval hilltop village of Geneva. I really love the Tiffany Hotel.
Great little hotel!
This was a great small hotel in Geneva. The room is small, but that's the way most hotels are here. Everything was nice, clean, with sparkly bathrooms. The restaurant is cute, and had a nice breakfast. It's not too far from the shops on the left bank and Old Town (which is a must to visit). The hotel also has air-conditioning which is good to have in the summertime. We asked for a quite room and was given a room on the side street, which worked out quite well. I'd definitely stay here again.

This morning was an early start (6 AM) to catch the TGV train to Geneva. We had to take the metro to Paris Lyon, where we bought lunch for on the train, and then caught it to Switzerland. It was a bit slower than the Eurostar and took around 4:30. Otherwise it all went smoothly though. Once in Geneva, we caught the tram to CERN, the end of the line, and were slowly transferred ...
When a very dear and very long-time friend emails you that she's going to be in an interesting city that's much closer to you than it is to her, and asks if you can come out to play with her, what possible answer can you give other than "But of course!"? Mike had a conference he was attending and Tamar came along because she could. And what good is it to live in Europe and not take advantage of opportunities like this?

... the nerves, but as it turned out, pretty effective - we got there in the end. Lost or not: the route was spectacular. Beautiful (thin) winding mountain roads with Jo gasping for air as she looked out over the drop just centimetres from her car window. Water falls, rustic tunnels hacked out of the rock, the occasional lycra clad cyclist slogging their way up. As we got towards the top and the country opened up a bit to alpine meadows, ...
After a 9.5 hour flight to Frankfurt, a long bus ride at the airport to the next plane, and a short 50 minute flight, we are in Geneva. Figured out how to take a bus to the hotel, overpaid, arrived and finally got our room. Slight problem with our reservation - they had us down for 2 people only. Kids will have to sleep outside in the rain ;-) --- Went downtown and joined a festival... Walked around, ate drank, got wet, and enjoyed the fireworks... Everyone is beat... Off to ...
... to buy a toll tag to be able to use the Swiss highways, but today we didn’t need one.
We parked at the Mont Blanc parking structure on the left bank of Lake Geneva, or as the Swiss call it Lac Léman. The first order of business was lunch. We walked up into the old city, set on a hill in what used to be a fortified position, surrounded by walls. Most of the walls are gone now but some sections and some gates remain, reminders of a violent past. The ...
