... barely see anything. We then went to one of the lookouts which was higher up, and we saw even more nothing. They had a big glass box which you could stand in and look frightened as you gaze down at the massive drop below. But all you could see was white, so it wasn't really that impressive! I think Mont Blanc is a good name for this mountain - it really is completely white! There is a tunnel of ice here, which leads to ...
So we shall start with a vital question from the CERN passport, we need some help in getting the answer right. Which of these particles circulate in the LHC? a) simpletons b) protons c) croutons Hmmm... Being nerds in Geneva, yes we went to CERN. In case there are any non-nerds out there, the LHC is the Large Hadron Collider - an underground particle accelerator! We got a booklet of questions and visited the displays. Unfortunately, ...
... could take a rest day here... And our shoes are still wet, and we hate putting on wet shoes... But we did want to conquer our mission to ride all the way from the North Sea to the Mediterranean Sea. And we will undoubtedly meet with rain throughout our journey over the Alps. So we decided on the 'wait and see' option. We packed up and ate breakfast inside the tent, and headed to the restaurant for cappuccinos. By this time, the rain was finally easing ...
A cycle free day today as we took a road trip to Geneva. With overcast stormy weather we backed our trusty SatNav to get us there whilst avoiding the car tax entry. Advice from our host in Annecy put us on the right track and we made our way into the lake city without a hassle.
Aboard the Petit train for a quick tour then we footed it to the sights around the lake.
... ve est l’une des villes les plus chères du monde. Bon évidemment mon salaire est en conséquence donc je devrais m’en sortir. Les seul prix que j’ai en tête pour l’instant sont ceux de l’immobilier. Il faut compter entre 1000 et 1300 francs pour un studios de 30 m² maximum (ça fait entre 800 et 1150€). Et puis au resto pas moyen de trouver quoi que ce soit à moins de 20 francs (16€).

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.
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.
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.
