Great hotel,the staff at front desk were so helpful. We went to Geneva for the motor show and the hotel was ideally located ,middle oif Geneva ,two minutes from the train station and 7 mins by train to the Show plus the hotel gave us unlimited travel passes for our stay.
The hotel itself is beautiful and we had a lovely Superior Room with a sectioned off tv area .Faultless with beautiful decor.

Room Tip: Ask for a superior room

Good: staff pleasant & helpful, rooms not too bad & well equipped, beds comfortable, nice lobby area and good inhouse restaurant apparently (we didn't eat dinner though). Some nice sauna facilities also. Hotel provides ticket for local travel (bus, tram) for duration of stay.

Not so good: bedrooms back onto mainline Geneva rail station, so not only noisy but whole room shakes as trains pass through every 15 mins or so - we were at the rear of the hotel. Location not brilliant, edge of the red light and not very safe ( for Switzerland). Decor very tired outside of the main lobby. Parking charges extortionate (CHF 45/ night).

In general, I am not overly impressed with Geneva hotels and this one was no different. The location is ok. Its a few blocks from Cornavin train station, so getting around is easy. The larger rooms looked very nice, but the standard room in tiny. I had to maneuver around doors and furniture to get anywhere. It was relatively quite though. My first room, immediately across from the elevator was noisy, but a little larger than the one I was moved to. It was quite though and functional. The lighting is not great, so it's not a great place to do work. For sleeping it is absolutely fine. I found the young man at the front desk to have an attitude, but the rest of the staff were quite nice. It is Very convenient having the Coop grocery store immediately across the street. I usually go to Manor, which although the quality of food and variety is much better, is much more expensive. There is also a tram that goes to Nacions right outside the door.

Room Tip: if rooms other than a standard single room are available, it's probably worth the extra cost. T...

We had the luxury room in their annexe this time, and the bathroom was really second to none, with separate toilet and walk in shower, very clean and modern. How water like the Niagra Falls.

The other big plus is that it is so easy to get to from the Airport or Station. From the Airport, make sure you get your free Geneva travel ticket from a before you leave the baggage area. Trains are fast and frequent. From the station find the tram stop 15 to Nations. It is easy to leave the station by the wrong entrance. Go down the escalators to the shopping are and out that way, not the "back entrance". The trams are also frequent. Just one stop and your are outside the hotel.

If you are going to the UN complex - which is well worth a visit as a tourist - just stay on the 15.

The location is not fantastic, like all of the Manotel hôtels in Geneva, but it has a good quality/price relation. The reception staff were very helpful and efficient. The only thing was that the air conditioning was not working and hotel staff told me that in winter it is switched off. This is strange as it was way too hot in the room and to make matters worse you cannot even open the window.
Although the hotel was generally ok, I will try to avoid it in the future and rather stay in one of the other Manotel hôtels as I find the Auteuil and the Kipling hôtels (virtually next door) more pleasant and, more importantly, more recent.

Great service, brilliant location and lovely room (superior). Free wi-fi. Worth pointing out that it's a 1 tram stop from the central train station, or a 5 minute walk (this was difficult with luggage and skis etc) but grateful that we knew we could get a tram back to the station on return!

Superior room is large and luxurious with all the little luxuries like bath robes etc. nespresso coffee maker very much appreciated. Location is great near lots of cafes and restaurants. Right next to tram stop which makes transportation easy.

We really enjoyed our 2 night stay here

Room Tip: Superior room is luxurious
