Hotel N'vY
Ranked #14 of 106 Hotels in Geneva
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 August 2014

My husband and I enjoyed a modest sized, quiet junior suite with a pull out couch for our adult son. It was a very comfortable room, albeit with some design quirkiness. A large attached balcony with lounge chairs was a plus. The hotel is very modern, the staff helpful and friendly, but expensive, as is all of Switzerland in my experience. The only potential downside is that the hotel is not close to the old city or tourist attractions, although it is close to the tram, which runs frequently. We did not feel unsafe in the neighborhood and there are several nice patisseries nearby on Rue de Lausanne.

We booked this hotel by chance really because we liked the look of the art and jumped at the chance of a quiet room (which was promised). This hotel is great - the staff are very helpful, the rooms well furnished and indeed quiet and the art is engaging. We walked all over Geneva from here - it is close to transport, stores and restaurants. We ate at the hotel restaurant one evening, and they were very helpful in providing us with a special meal request at a late hour - thank you!
We were out late at night and the streets around there seemed OK to us, though as I have previously lived in Geneva, maybe I was more confident. All in all an excellent experience and one we will repeat.

Great staff who are very helpful. Very modern renovation completed in lobby and rooms. Close to train station. Fast free wifi service. Unfortunately the surrounding streets don't feel that safe at night, which explained the high police presence. Just be cautious as you would with any place.

Room Tip: Quite street and area, nil noise in rooms. Higher floors

We all know Geneva is an expensive city, but that issue aside, the Hotel N'vY was a pleasant surprise. The hotel is within walking distance from train station, the lake, and public transit. The room was comfortable and the food very good. Most importantly, the staff were always extremely helpful.

Because of some mix up in my reservations i stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and was pleasantly surprised.Very Modern and colorful decor very nicely appointed rooms and right in the middle of town.Everyone was very nice and helpful.My room had a color light to keep you in the mood which you want.Very nice toiletries.

Room Tip: Better to take a room at higher floors.Still as you are not near the lake so do not expect picturesq...

Good remodel, and better trained and more professional staff make this hotel a good value in the otherwise expensive Geneva. The location is great for access to public transit. It is walking distance to lakefront.

Let's start with the bad: This is Geneva and it is an extremely expensive city. Compound that with the number of smokers (I saw more pregnant women smoking than I ever imagined ! We also visited London, Paris, the Alps, Milan, Venice, the Greek islands => Geneva had twice the number of smokers than we encountered eleswhere) and it is unlikely I will ever return. My kids said "It's just California, but with smokers...."

Now the good: If you do end up in Geneva, this hotel is excellent. It was our last two nights in Europe after three weeks away from home and we needed comfort and a bit of luxury, which the hotel delivered. For the 4 of us, we had a "family suite" which is two of their executive suites at the end of the hall with very large terraces on the top floor. Nice, comfortable rooms and well sized for Europe. The terraces are worth the price and double your living space. No real view, other than the neighboring roof tops. Bathrooms are large and well fitted, but one of ours refused to operate as a shower. There is a window between the shower and bedroom => thankfully there is a curtain. Good AC, good mini bar with a couple of complementary items, nice espresso machine. Compared to other much more expensive hotels in Geneva, this is a winner. But I would not pay this price elsewhere in the world.

We did not try the restaurants, but did go to the wine bar downstairs. Service was excellent and they supplied a wine bucket and glasses so that we could bring our purchases back up to the terrace.

The location is what really made the hotel for us since it is just two blocks to the lake. To your left is the park along the lake that leads to the botanical gardens and to the right is the Pres Wilson Promenade along the lakefront towards the city center. Up hill for about a km will lead you to the united nations buildings. Add in that the hotel is in walking distance (about a km) to the central train station (also on the public transport tram if you have a lot of luggage) and you have a winner from a location point of view. We found good restaurants and groceries within a few blocks.

NOTE: If you fly into Geneva airport, be sure to pick up the free transport ticket (good for 90 minutes) to get into the city via train. The ticket machine is in arrivals, just before you exit.

Bottom line: First class hotel, beautiful setting for a city, but Geneva itself was dissappointing.
