... the mountain. From there we took a second cable car that took us up to the Aguille du Midi, at 3842m. The view from the cable car was not inspiring, it was pretty much a complete white out. But this is the longest single span cable car in the world. It's incredibly steep too, you arrive at the cable car station almost vertically. On exiting the cable car we were in the middle of a snow storm. Standing on the highest bridge in Europe ...
... their heads underwater and fish that you can easily see through the clear water. But how is the water so clear? I know the Rhone isn't the only source of the lake, but where did the gunk go? On returning from CERN our theories of our less than appealing aromas had been confirmed. The hotel cleaners had come through and to quell the strong scent of of our room, had gone overboard with the bleach through the bathroom. When we opened ...
... and we seized this opportunity to get the tent packed up, and soon enough we were on our way. Our legs warmed up quickly, as we rode uphill immediately to leave the campsite. Up, up and up into the vineyards on the hill high above the campsite. After a fair bit of climbing, we reached the spot we were at yesterday, where I thought the climbing would end. It didn't. Up, up, and up. Then super steep down. Then super steep up, possibly the steepest ups ...
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.
We got on the road fairly early to head for Geneva, Switzerland. Ben was most excited as he had been looking forward to going there since we started our trip. I think he was looking forward to all the chocolates. The trip to Geneva took just over an hour and we managed to get a good car park in the middle of town. Geneva is a lovely city and seemed to be quite relaxed with not too much hustle and bustle as other European cities we had ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Moevenpick Hotel & Casino Geneva
I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights and was very impressed. I did not pay too much and was expecting more of a 4 star experience, but the staff and overall quality of the hotel easily exceeded my expectations. If you are looking for a top 5 star hotel with amazing amenities, this may not live up to it - but it still was quite good. The airport shuttle was very convenient and frequent (every 20 minutes). Not only was it useful for your flights in and out of town, but the shuttle also dropped you by the mass transit hub for trips into the city. The hotel gives you a free all day bus ticket as well, so that traveling downtown was a convenient, free short trip (instead of a lot of money for a taxi in an expensive city). Overall, the employees provided great customer service and , judging by previous comments, have made great strides in that area. Also, there were 4 computers close to the check in area that had free internet which was a nice touch. The restaurants were nice and pricey, but most of Geneva was equally expensive. Rooms were solid, but not spectacular. Clean, but not especially interesting.
Good for airport
Stayed a night before flying out of Geneva airport early the following morning. Hotel was high class, clean although the rooms have dated decour/layout. That said they are spotlessly clean and no visible signs of wear and tear. Regular shuttle bus to the airport every 20minutes as its a bit far from the airport to walk with luggage. Considering the location (by the airport and busy roads) the room was fairly quiet with only background noise audible from outside.
We booked directly with the hotel on a good offer and paid a small additional charge for an upgrade to an executive room. This is well worth doing. For 14CHF per night we got use of the executive lounge (tea, coffee, alcoholic beverages in the evening, free internet) plus breakfast which we had in the main restaurant.
Friendly and functional
There is nothing charming about the hotel or its neighborhood, but my experience was very satisfactory during a week-long business trip.
The management was visible, making sure the front desk was well-run. The staff, even at breakfast, was helpful and bilingual. The free fitness center was huge; breakfast was ample and the rooms were clean and attractive. I'm not much of a gambler, but I even wandered into the casino and found the atmosphere friendly.
The location near the airport is convenient; the shuttle was relaible. With a little effort, we even found a couple of good, reasonably-priced restaurants in walking distance. One warning: wireless internet connection for a laptop is costly and less than 100% reliable.
Chose the Movenpick only because of a trade fair which meant nearly everything else was full.
Great Overnight Stop
A great choice if you are in Geneva for a night or two and want to stay close to the airport. There are some excellent rates to be had online and the hotel deserves its 5 star rating. The rooms are of a good size and adequately furnished. The bathrooms are well equipped and clean. Food is a little overpriced but of excellent quality and the staff are attentive and helpful. Also very convenient for Palexpo.
We arrived at a busy time - 5.30, and the lobby was full of conference attendees trying to get rooms -some in dispute as their booked rooms had been altered. The check-in staff were unable to cope, and there was a wait of at least 30 minutes to check in. The check-in staff appeared to be poorly trained and unorganised - they were continually checking with each other on how to use the computer system and were unable to find key cards and hotel stationery.
Not a 5 star
This was an expensive night's sleep, booked through Expedia. It is not worth a 5 star rating, it is 4 star and no more. It has no atmosphere but that is expected for an airport hotel. The check in is functional, not personal. The lobby is terrible and we arrived late and the coffee shop was very inefficient and could hardly serve us a sandwich. We had to negotiate a small meal and a table. Not very good for a so called 5 star hotel. The room was clean but nothing special. Furthermore, perhaps because of the location and the casino, there were some very seedy looking people around the lobby late at night when we arrived. For the price, I would not recommend it.
Shuttle was always late, requested non-smoking but was given smoking, breakfast buffet quality not worth the price, etc... The weak US dollar combined with the poor service of this hotel made my trip a very mediocre experience...
Fantastic Hotel in Geneva
The Moevenpick Hotel Geneva is at the airport, outside the city centre but still quite convenient. Our room was very large and well equipped, and very comfortable. we had a connecting room for the children, which was great. the beds were very comfortable too. The Breakfast Buffet was one of the best we have seen. Although we didn't use the other restaurants, Moevenpick has a very good reputation for food - and of course there is the casino attached to the hotel for additional entertainment.
