From the moment we arrived, to the moment we left, nothing was too much trouble for the front of house staff. Always smiling and happy to help you with any queries you may have. We were handed a Geneva Transport Card which gave us access to free bus, tram or ferries during our stay. We did not pay for any transport during our stay, including journeys to and from the airport. (Just grab a ticket from the arrivals area for your free train ticket into the City that lasts 80 mins).

It's ideally located and is only moments away from Lake Geneva and also the Butini tram stop.

The bedroom was very stylish, with a lovely ensuite. Although the loo felt oppressive as the walls were painted black which I was not too fond off. But it did look well designed. The shower was lovely too.

The view from the room was nothing to speak of but that wasn't the key problem. I was woken on the Friday and Saturday nights of my stay by student revellers who were stopping to talk right outside. Though no fault of the hotel, it was a little noisy in the wee hours. The Sunday night was not a problem. But hey, we've all been students back in the day...

The bar area of the hotel was well designed and we stopped off for a drink whilst listening to the DJ mixing some tunes.

We did not try the cafe or restaurant in spite of being offered 15% off discount vouchers.

All in all we found this hotel to be top notch all round!!!

Room Tip: Try to avoid being at the back of the hotel where I was woken by student revellers.

Newest hotel in the Manotel group. I have stayed in Kipling before and the main difference here is design and restaurant/bar area. Common areas are in N’vY are spacious and bright and that is a big advantage if you want to meet someone or simply have a drink. Room was somewhat disappointing and the corridor on my floor more felt like a funerary, very dark. The building itself is anonymous, but location is fine, near the lake and less than 5’ to public transport. They offer a complimentary public transport pass for the whole of your stay that also gives access to the small ferry boats that cross the lake (boat stop in front of Hotel Beau Rivage, Quai du Mont-Blanc).

I was in Geneva for a conference with my 6 month old baby. I have stayed in several hotels in Europe and the USA, I found this hotel to be refreshingly different. The staff were friendly and great baby sitters too!

Easy to reach and ideally situated for all that Geneva has to offer. Very stylish hotel which is a breath of fresh air in comparison to some of the stuffier alternatives. We visited on Easter weekend and the hotel was rather quiet (as may be expected...) with no real ambience in either the hotel bar or restaurant. The air conditioning in the room was not working and this lead to a poor night's sleep on the first night - when I enquired about this at reception the following day I was told that due to cooler than expected temperatures outside, the air conditioning wouldn't be working as normal for a few days. I was disappointed in this as the hotel seems to be naturally very warm - far too warm for me to be able to sleep properly - a member of staff then came to the room to fiddle about with the air conditiong thermostat before muttering something in French into his phone and wandering off. I spent the next two nights sleeping with both windows open, to cool the room down a bit but unfortunately this is a guaranteed alarm call too with a loading bay in close vicinity.

I like this hotel but a the ability to get a good night's sleep is at the heart of any holiday for me and this was impossible at this hotel.

Being on the road a lot for business, the N'vY was a really refreshing change from the countless faceless hotel chains. Stylish, artsy with cool music and an abercrombie-style fragrance on the ground floor of the hotel. Very friendly staff at the check in. Nice 15 min walk along the lake to get from the hotel to the city center. Room size was relatively small - which I guess is normal for Switzerland. Small bathroom. Over all definitely an above average experience! Will return to N'vY on my next trip to Geneva.

We stayed only one night, but really enjoyed not just the lovely Hotel, but also the friendly staff in the restaurant and bar, who found our Aussie accents amusing! The food in the restaurant and cafe was delicious. The hotel is only one block away from lake and ferry station, close to trams and buses. A couple of back streets behind the hotel were a bit seedy, but easily avoidable if you stuck it the main transport routes. We asked for a small jug of fresh milk, and were charged 6euros which was a bit over the top. Overall, we loved our stay here.

Room Tip: We were told we were upgraded but it looked like the exact room we had booked, the hotel was very ni...
