Reviewed 8 November 2012

Spent our last night of our France trip in Geneva at this beautiful hotel.The staff, especially Damian, was so friendly & helpful,and the location so central to everything, the construction out front seemed minimal. Our room was spacious & elegant with a beautiful, newly remodeled marble bathroom with large shower. The continental breakfast was surprisingly large & delivered to our room on a beautifully set table. This turned out to be the best ending to a wonderful trip!

We visited for a few days, and there is considerable construction going on outside the hotel. The staff made sure we had a room that was quiet and very lovely. They were friendly and extremely helpful the entire time we were there. Breakfast was a nice surprise. The construction will be completed within a year, and the street outside mostly closed to traffic. Shopping is steps away, and the lake an easy walk. Old town in the other direction is also easily accessed and charming. I'd stay there again.

The hotel is located few steps from the famous flower clock and the lake and few minutes walk from shops restaurants and the old town. The service is impeccable and rooms are very comfortable. The breakfast is reach and tasteful.
Don't expect contemporary decoration or great view from the room, but clean and comfortable rooms.
I stayed there few time for business and will return again.

For many years, we had a home in the Old Town of Geneva. Later on, we have moved to London, UK - and have visited Geneva only sporadically. For this reason, we have eventually decided to give up our home in the Old Town - and began staying in the Hotel La Cigogne, in the hart of Geneva, whenever we visited Switzerland.

The boutique hotel La Cigogne is really the ideal home-away-from-home. It looks like an exquisite private home situated on a small square in the centre of the city. The service throughout the establishment is exemplary, the rooms and suites are lovely - and the position of the hotel simply could not be better: it is only a few steps away from rue de Rhone, the Geneva's answer to London's Bond Street (or Sloan Street or New York's 5th Avenue or Barcelona's Paseo de Gracia or or Zurich's Banhof Strasse) - and the charming Old Town can be reached by just ten minutes walk against the hill towards the beautiful Geneva Cathedral and the enchanting squares and restaurants and small antique shops of the Old Quarters.

We cannot imagine a better choice of an accommodation in Geneva - and we strongly recommend this lovelyhotel to anybody who wishes to spend a few luxurious days in the beautiful city on Lac Leman - and not be the subject of the boring routine of the big hotels on the other side of the river Rhone.

The staff of the hotel is like a family to us - and we always look forward to returning to La Cigogne - for a week or two, four of five times a year. Again - warmly recommended!

Room Tip: The suites on the top of the hotel are the best choice.

This hotel is hard to spot travelling by Public Transport but on arrival a single door led to a luxurious safe haven. My room was spacious with a wide long corridor leading to the double basin bathroom, and mini cabinet on the either side. Further along the corridor a second door leads to a spacious twin bedroom with living room (2 piece suite sofas, antique furniture - one being a large Edwardian oak desk). It was a match made in heaven! I was travelling on business and needed the space to do work! With this hotel it really is the small touches; soft towels, survival kits in the bathroom, bottled water with turn down. The hotel also has a magnificent suite split over 2 floors - ideal for those junior groups. Room service was sufficient and nothing was too much on the concierge desk. This hotel is perfect for business travellers who want to be centrally located and comfortable.

Room Tip: For groups sharing room 22/ for those who want the space room 37

To put it simply, it’s a terrific place, and one which is right in the heart of the city. Another review on here says this: “The staff are extremely well trained and genuinely care about their guests. I've never seen this level of sincerity at a regular hotel.” It’s true, absolutely. The level of service is comparable only to the standards that you yourself set and expect, and these guys really meet and greet those standards. The food is also excellent, and the staff seemingly have a nose for the grape and a sound pallet as I was recommended a good wine to complement the food I chose, and they never selected the most expensive bottle on the list, but, rather, the wine that actually fit the food.

The room I had was, sadly, on the top floor and overlooked the back of the hotel, so I had no view to mention other than other a slight blend of different shades of grey bricks. Regardless of this, the room was clean, tidy and regularly serviced. It included a 28” LCD TV and a bucket-load of freebees should you ever decide to indulge in swiping them (slippers, dressing gowns, and so forth).

Super hotel (if slightly quirky), great service, fantastic staff. Looking forward to the next trip.Which is real soon!
