Reviewed 22 July 2014

Beautiful hotel and great service. The staff were brilliant, and their english was excellent (no matter how hard I try, my french isn't as good). The bed wasn't as comfortable as I'd hoped but was easily rectified by hoisekeeping by a mattress topper and a selection from the pillow menu

Dear Helene

Thank you for your visit and for sharing your experience with the TripAdvisor community. The team and the management are always there to make you feel as comfortable as possible. It is important that we know you prefer a softer mattress or a topper for the mattress and a different pillow from our menu so that in the future your preferences will be taken care of prior to your arrival.

Visit us soon again dear Helene

We were invited to a cocktail party to introduce a new wine club held at the newly opened terrace bar on the 5th floor with fabulous views. It was raining so the party was held on the 4th floor. The rain stopped for a brief period so we were able to go up to a narrow terrace and the view was superb. I would recommend any tourist who happens to pass the hotel on a sunny day to go up and have one drink and enjoy the view. Take the left elevator it's the only one going to the 5th floor.
As it was raining we decided to have dinner in the hotel, we passed the bar which seemed very colourful and entered Le Grand Quai dining room, that there were only two Japanese tourists eating should have warned us! The room is dull 1930's and the brief menu fitted in well. Half of Geneva goes on holiday in July and this is a business hotel I imagine rarely patronised by locals as there are two many good restaurants. It seemed that only two staff were on duty. My wife ordered an entrecote steak, which was grilled in small pieces, I ordered cabillaud it arrived with strings of a white vegetable arranged in a bird's nest - a very white dish a light broth was then poured over. The fish was hot, the vegetable cold and the broth luke warm. The part of the fish next to the skin was uncooked. a weird dish I thought. I think the Chef was on holiday too!

Room Tip: I did not sleep there and I would not unless I was attending a conference.

Stayed here a few nights whilst in Geneva for a meeting which I tacked on to a family holiday, so the wife and kids were with me. I wanted a hotel on the old town side from which they could walk around the shopping areas and the like. We had 2 adjoining rooms. The hotel is an old style grand hotel. It was fine, nothing special, but pretty pricey, as everything is in Geneva. Our rooms faced the lake whiohc was good for the view, but also picked up a little traffic noise. Overall it was a fine place to stay.

Room Tip: view rooms are nice but beware the traffic noise

Dear David,

I frankly appreciate the fact thank you have taken the time to share your experience at the Swissôtel Métropole Geneva with the Trip Advisor community.

Combining business with family holiday it is such a luxury and we value the fact that it happened in our hotel.

Your review is of great support not only to all of us in the hotel but also to future guests. It provides valuable details of the hotel, such as confirming hotel’s strengths in term of location and being family friendly. Furthermore, the review provides the management with recommendations for improvement such as the style and being special for you, our guest. Since 2012 the hotel is in a refreshing period of the rooms facing the lake which offers the guests a new room category “ Signature rooms”. These are modern in design with state of art technology and I strongly recommend to try out during your next visit in Geneva. Please visit our web page where several promotions are momentarily offered.

Your experience has been shared your with the colleagues and in particular with the Sales & Marketing and also the Reservation team.

I stayed in one of the newly renovated rooms and the air con wasn't wonderful. Everything else worked.
Those Swiss window motorized shutters are fantastic.
