“Nice place, close to the UN.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2013

Friendly staff and overall a comfortable place. Walking distance to the UN and to British Pubs. Their breakfast is quite a spread of fruits and cheeses, and is a good value. Across the street is a lakefront park.

Room Tip: There's free bus to the airport that stops just a block away. Save on cab fare.

The hotel is well placed. The lake and its park are just across the road. The hotel itself is well appointed. There are two issues: the first is that one cannot get tea/coffee on demand. This could have been dealt with if they had put in tea and coffee in the rooms. So that was a let down. They do have a bar but it opens at 6 pm. The second was the lack of air-conditioning. I can see that it probably is not needed most of the year,but this July it was very hot indeed.

Having said that, the staff are most helpful and courteous. The breakfast was plentiful and good. There was a wide variety and it was well presented and served. My son, who lives in London, did observe that there was no marmalade!

The hotel is in a nice part of town. The Botanical Gardens are close by. Transport,as with the rest of Geneva, near perfect. On the whole a good stay.

Dear Sir,
We would like to thank you for taking time to share your feedback concerning your stay at the Hotel Mon-Repos.

We sincerely appologize that our service didn't reach your expectations however on request to the front desk you could had a tea or a coffee served in the lounge or a keetle brought to your room. Otherwise our bar is open on Sundays from 6pm to 11pm and from Monday to Thursday from 4pm to 11pm.
We are pleased that you enjoyed our breakfast, however a bit surprise that you mention the lack of marmelade as it's part of our daily selection : bitter orange marmelade, raspberry, strawberry, apricot, black cherry jam and honey.

We will forward your compliments to our staff and we hope to welcome you back at the Hotel Mon-Repos during your next visit to Geneva.

With our best regards

We had only had one night in Hotel Mon Repos but we cannot recommend it enough. The rooms are beautifully presented and very clean. Staff are pleasant and helpful, and a short bus ride from outside the hotel takes you into the centre of Geneva. Highly recommended.

We went to Geneva in May 2013, combining business with pleasure, and stayed for three days at the hotel. Courtesy of the hotel, we got free bus passes for Geneva. The park was nearby and we took walks and enjoyed the lake as well as the flowers. We went downtown and partook of the food in many restaurants including one at the inner city. We also went to Montreux which was an hour away by train. It was truly an enjoyable trip and we'll return!

Room Tip: The room was very good and provided a small fridge, and a safe.

I stayed a week in the hotel, I liked its cleanliness and good counter service, it´s price was good and is good located, A perfect business hotel close to the lake and to the city. My only regrets are a lack of fitness area and a restaurant who serves lunch and dinners.

Nice, modern hotel. Very friendly staff that helps whenever you need help. Rooms are modern and clean.
As Geneva is very expensive this is very good value for money in Geneva. A perfect business hotel close to the lake and to the city.

I have stayed at the Hotel Mon Repos regularly since 1995, both in the serviced apartments and in the hotel. I always return because I know, absolutely know, that this hotel is the epitome of Swiss reliability. Every email to the hotel will be answered in a matter of hours, and the reply will respond specifically to the question or request I had. At check-in, they will know exactly what I have requested, and will recognize that I have stayed there before. The front desk staff are exceptionally well qualified (speaking three or four languages), poised, pleasant, responsive and intelligent. The room will be spotlessly clean, thoughtfully arranged, with good lighting, and excellent plumbing, heating, etc.
Once owned by the Keller family, this hotel is in an area that was parkland until the first international organizations arrived in the 1920s, and the buildings on this row appear to date from that era. For anyone with business at the WTO, the UN, the ILO, and other international organizations along the Avenue de la Paix and Rue Appia, the location of the hotel is superb -- a hotel overlooking the lake and only two minutes' walk to the #28 bus which drops one off at the doorstep of these organizations.
Over the years, the hotel's décor has been modernized, now the rooms are in a chic charcoal grey and white, sort of Euro-modern décor for the international banker/traveler. WiFi is in the rooms is speedy and free. I especially like the bright lighting in the bathroom and the superb water power and steady temperature in the shower.
Prices might seem high, but for Geneva this hotel is very reasonably priced. If you want to stay here, book as soon as you know your dates. When one of the international organization's has a big committee meeting, the hotel will be booked full because those who stay here return -- and they will make their reservations a year in advance!
