Novotel Geneve Aeroport
Travel Blogs from Ferney-Voltaire
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.

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.

We changed it up and ordered tartiflette (melted cheese baked on top of bacon, potatoes, and crème fraiche) and a raclette with peppercorn cheese, with chocolate mousse for dessert. We savored every bite and are now carrying the memories of our meals at Le Freti in the form of extra pounds. Worth it!

TravelPod Member ReviewsNovotel Geneve Aeroport Ferney-Voltaire
Booked on booking.com for 2 adults, 2 kids but hotel was unaware of kids.
Managed to find us a room but it was smoking and stunk. Moved us next door which was still smoking but not as bad.
Hotel also undergoing renovations in front lobby so strong smell of paint.
