... of eight from there to the hotel in their minivan.

The trams are great: clean, cheap, and all electric. The city of Geneva (from what I could see) was really clean too, with recycling bins everywhere there's a rubbish bin. The water here even tastes like New Zealand water! The hotel is really nice too, with big modern rooms. Definitely nice to have some space after ...

Super Non-Sucky Adventure,

... flight to Geneva, Switzerland, Sunday, July 13. It was rainy, so there was no visibility for the first half of the flight. Eventually, I noticed that there were some white clouds sticking up above the rest of the mostly level surface of the clouds, like islands in the Caribbean. Nope, not clouds, but mountain tops. All in a line. And there's one really, really big one at the end. Mont Blanc as I came to realize.

... local speciality - a creamy potato dish with bacon and mushrooms - which was delicious. We generally narrow down the choices for the kids and then let them choose. To their credit, they are getting pretty adventurous on trying new tastes (sometimes). In the end it, for us, it was simply a night on the road. Comfortable bed - I shared with Flynn in the double and Bronte and Jo had a single each in the other room - and a strong hot shower. All ...

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 ...

... while the newer part of town is more modern.

After our city tour we hopped aboard a boat and did an hour long cruise on the lake. The weather was gorgeous and warm, so there were tons of people swimming, boating, sailing and enjoying the crystal blue waters. It was the perfect day to cruise Lake Geneva. There are small beaches here and there as well as a very long pier, and all of them were filled with people soaking up the summer sun.

Once the boat cruise was done, ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Novotel Geneve Centre Geneva

    Very modern

    from

    The hotel's location is perfect. We walked to the old city, the train station and also the International Area. It's also easy to take public transportation to this hotel. The beds are very comfortable and it was easy to get no feather bedding which isn't always true in Europe. There are no beautiful views from this hotel but it's also not a high rise. The problem with the hotel room was it's bathroom. Everything was so modern you needed an engineering degree to figure out the faucets and the temperatures. The sink area slopes so there is very little room for placing personal cosmetics. The front desk staff had very few tourist brochures but they were willing to phone for information for me.

    Pleasant Hotel in Geneva

    from

    Very pleasant hotel, close to the train station. Rooms are quite a good size, especially for Europe. The rooms were very clean.

    Hotel reception was located down from street level, making it a bit awkward with luggage.

    I did not use the restaurant, but it did serve all meals.

    When I was there in October, 2005, renovation was underway which provided the only negative. Construction noises were heard before 9:00 am, contrary to the advice.

    Many restaurants are close by, although the main shopping district is on the other side of the river (about a 10-15 minute walk).

    The weekend special was good value, given that Geneva can be a very expensive destination.

    Decent Hotel

    from

    I recently stayed at this Hotel will on a football watching visit to Geneva.

    The hotel was everything that I expect from a Novotel, clean efficient, bar, breakfast and there were about 40 channels on the TV.

    The reviewer who says it is not close to the railway station must have got lost, it was at the very most a 5 minute walk.

    It is in a fairly good area for bars and restaurants and I would certainly stay here again

    Very disappointed

    from

    the room we stayed in was old but spacious. its not near the train station - about 20 mins walk. staff not friendly at all. i wouldnt stay there again.

    Disappointing

    from

    Carpet in bedroom was SERIOUSLY stained...room very dark and with no view. Staff not helpful at all and quite rude really which is not in Geneva style at all. Room worn out and with just luke warm water if you're lucky (unbelievable for a hotel that rates itself as 4 stars). Appliances old and worn out in bathroom/shower and not working properly. Needs refurbishment. Pure robbery. No breakfast included and they asked for highest fare none the less. For the same price you can stay in the same location in a much more decent hotel with brand new furniture, wooden floors and great (!!) service and staff and royal breakfast included in price!! (=Hotel Auteuil, 3 mins walk down the road from Novotel). In a nutshell= a waste of money. Also no spa/fitness facilities. I do not recommend it.

    Good hotel

    from

    Stayed here april 28 - may 1, 2005. Very good location between train station and lake. Modern hotel well kept hotel and rooms. I would stay here again if we came to Geneva. Great for runners because the promenade is about three blocks away.

    The hotel in Europe that can sleep 4

    from

    We have just spent two nights at this hotel and would recommend it to others. The hotel was booked through Internet direct to its web site and it is the only Hotel that can sleep 4. We took our daughters with us and they shared our bedroom for free of charge. The room was very spacious with two king size beds. On the second night we requested another bed for our daughters because they didn't like sharing and there was still space left in the room. Housekeeping was very prompt and efficient; we needed things twice and they came up to the room within 5 mins. The location of the hotle was very good, less than 10 mins walk from the railway station (every train from the airport goes through the central station and it only takes 6 mins) and the lake. If you are a light sleeper, like myself, then this hotel is for you because it's off the main road and the bedroom doors are not sprung so you don't keep hearing people banging the doors, going in and out. It's been a thumbs up from us.

    Good value for a 4 star business hotel

    from

    We (two female friends) spent 2 nights at the Novotel in Geneva, and found it good value for money. We paid CHF230 per night for two, a week-end deal. The room was spacious and confortable; not luxurious, but renovated within the last 2 years in contemporary colours (clotted cream and blues). We requested twin accomodation, and were pleasantly surprised to find the room had 2 double beds. The bathroom was newly renovated, and had a powerful haidryer. And all the amenities you'd expect from a 4 star business chain- voicemail, pay movies, internet access etc...The restaurant was surprisingly good. Location is very convenient, within walking distance from the business and shopping district and the Old Geneva. Other reviewers mention the proximity of the red light district as a downside, but its so tame and discreet we barely noticed it.

    Nice Hotel

    from

    We visited Geneva for my birthday and stayed at the Novotel for 2 nights.

    The staff were friendly and helpful. We booked a "City Tour" with them which is worth going on if you are short on time - 2 hour tour - 39SFr.

    The room was quite large with two double beds and plenty of space around them. The only thing that wasn't to our satisfaction was the pillows had fresh air instead of filling in them - but lots of hotels are like that!

    At breakfast there was plenty of choice. We didn't eat our evening meal in the hotel - there is a bar/restaurant virtually next door - Aleluja! Very friendly people and OK with children - just ask and they will do it!

    The bar in the hotel was a bit expensive but this didn't spoil a nice stay!

    Convenient, Clean, and Efficient

    from

    This hotel was convenient, clean and efficient. It is a business hotel that is centrally located. Staff was friendly, and helpful. Close proximity to Geneva's red light district is downside for those travelling with children (maybe more of an American observation?).
