Travel Blogs from Geneva


A travel blog entry by katiemoberg

The 5 hour drive to Geneva was just as picturesque as the drive from Innsbruck to Venice. The scenery was so beautiful. It was a mix of mountains, lush greens and even snow at the top of the peaks! My favorite part of a lot of these drives has been the old castles that are built into the cliffs of the mountains. I want to tour one eventually. We …

Day 54: Chamomix and Mont Blanc

A travel blog entry by jimboandsusan


Oh what a luxury, we have just had two rest days in a row. We haven't had this sort of pampering in almost a month! For the first time, our quads have fully relaxed, and the gentle but ever-present mild burning sensation has ceased. I could get used to this. Today we took a tour to the Alpine village of Chamonix and Mont Blanc. The bus took 90 minutes to reach Chamonix, where we were immediately put onto a cable car that took us ...

Day 53: Geneva

A travel blog entry by jimboandsusan


... We understood the English video a little better than the French one... We also went for a short stroll through the city, checking out sites such as the fountain, flower clock and bridges. We were relieved to finally have some rest after all that riding in the rain. One thing that is confusing me is that the Rhone is filling Lac Leman full of dark grey coloured water, yet the water in Geneva is crystal clear. There are lots of ...

Day 52: Vevey to Geneva

A travel blog entry by jimboandsusan


... 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 ...

Lake Geneva and a day of Swiss culture

... of high rise buildings. All seem to have been built to tie in with the old town buildings within the city.

Tomorrow we leave for St Michel de Maurienne in the heart of French Alps cycling.
My last ride in Annecy tomorrow morning is a challenge with four Cols in total before meeting up with Mich in Thones.

Hope the weather improves.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Royal - Manotel Geneva

    A Biased Review


    We spent two nights at the Royal Manotel and found the service, accommodation and location to be superb. On check-in, we were upgraded to a junior suite as two conferences were being held in the hotel. The suite was very spacious with a lounge area, dining room table and a small kitchenette. The hotel was also within walking distance to the lake and Old Town. More importantly it was less than 5 minutes from the main train station allowing for easy access to the airport and other areas of the city and Switzerland.

    Terrible AND Fantastic!


    We spent the past 2 nights at the Manotel.

    Nice hotel except for the exploding sink...


    I had somewhat unusual experience so let me start with the basics. the hotel is perfectly nice. Clean, well-cared for property that has been renovated in the last few years. There is a nice restaurant. The location is on a main street near the train station. Very good if you are in town to do business with one of the many international organizations (the Place des Nations is a 10-15 minute walk.

    Modern Hotel


    The Manotel Royal is a very ,clean neat and modern hotel.

    Good location, overpriced but hey, it's Geneva


    The Royal Manotel is a couple of minutes' walk from the train station and about 10 minutes walk from the lake and the Jet d'Eau. It's clean but the regular rooms aren't anything special for a European hotel and certainly you wouldn't pay this price for this level of room in London or Paris, but that seems to be the general situation in Geneva. The twin beds in the standard rooms were not very comfortable, and they were short! I'm only 5 foot 3 and the bed was barely long enough for me; a colleague staying in the same hotel who was 6 foot 2 had to sleep with his legs on top of the covers. If you're tall, try to get a room with a bigger bed than the standard twins. But if you go up a level or two, some of the rooms in the hotel are top-quality: another colleague had a suite which was big, comfortable, beautifully decorated, equipped with a kitchenette etc. The buffet breakfast was good with a variety of choices and the staff was pleasant, and they speak good English, which you can't take for granted in Geneva.

    Comfortable transit hotel - excellent free WiFi Internet


    Stayed at this hotel overnight on transit in Geneva. Great spot - about 100 metres from the train station, and 10 minutes walk from the Lake (downhill).

    Nothing spectacular about the rooms, which are clean and comfortable.

    Reception and other staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. Breakfast (included) exceeded expectations, with a separate buffet table for low-fat diners.

    Best feature - free WiFi Internet access, accessible from the rooms.

    Fine for What It Is


    I stayed at the Manhotel Royal at the end of May, 2005. I had a junior suite. Staff were helpful, the room was clean and decent and the decor was new. My junior suite had a separate kitchen with pots and pans, which I thought was a nice option. This is a centrally located, mid-range business hotel for people who want to be close to the train station and not spend as much as you need to spend for the hotels in higher categories. It has good facilities for the business traveler. It is not a luxury hotel: the food was mediocre, the views are poor, the decor in the rooms and in the restaurant is a little tacky, the hallways are a little depressing, the staff (except for the OUTSTANDING porter I had) lacks the demeanor of those at better quality hotels, and the clientele is a little downmarket, it appeared to me. This is a good place to stay if you want to make clear to a client, the government, a boss or junior employee that you care just about functionality and are not pretentious. For a nicer experience in Geneva at a similar price, book a small room at a luxury hotel.

    A wonderful hotel!


    Great hotel. Good restaurant, service, rooms etc. Also nice fitness centre and very handy for the lake, station, airport & town. Also liked the free internet access and WiFi in this hotel. FANTASTIC!

    Top class hotel.........


    Cannot fault this hotel. Fabulous. Everything you need. Good location - handy to the main train station where it takes 4 minutes on a train to the airport. Easy walk to the lake. Buffet breakfast was so good that we didn't need to eat all day. The staff couldn't do enough and all spoke very good English. Good value for money. Quite a large lift for a european hotel and large rooms with huge beds! Would gladly stay at this hotel again. Most floors are non-smoking which is a good thing as most people smoke in Europe.
