Hotel Bristol
Ranked #7 of 109 Hotels in Geneva
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 19 December 2012

Most hotels in Geneva offer excellent service but even so the Bristol stands out.

I have always favored the Warwick Hotel due to its great location but after not being able to get rooms there on my last trip it may be time to rethink.
Our handler recommended The Bristol and even though I was a bit skeptical at first, this quickly changed once I arrived at the hotel.

Location wise, the Bristol sits across from the Four Seasons Hotel and convenient to both the station and the old town.

While a bit smaller than the Warwick, the rooms are more elegant and the views a lot nicer - the rear part of the hotel has the view of the courtyard while the front faces the Rue du Mont Blanc. Additionally given that there is maid service twice a day, they are much cleaner and better appointed.
The breakfast room and the bar areas are also nicer both are more elegant and cozy at the same time.
The spa offers a sauna, steam room, a whirlpool and a work out room, all items that are lacking at the Warwick.

No doubt I have found a new favorite abode when in Geneva.

Just returned from staying at Bristol Hotel Geneva so pleased we got a complimentary upgrade due to the fact it was one of my friends special birthday Room was exellent spacious fab bathroom with robes slippers and toiletries Turn down service at night with your own personal tea towel beside the bed so you dont have you bare feet on the floor and swiss chocolate left too Champagne breakfast was a great start to the day and the service was very attentive with out being in your face Staff are very helpful when asking about whats on and how to get to places The location is very good couple minutes walk from train/bus station and right beside the lake and jet d' Eau try the little cafe on the lake selling hot mulled wine and ginger beer while watching the brave souls swimming in the very cold lake I would return to this hotel anytime I've been to many foreign cities but Geneva is the most expensive take your creidt card

The Bristol is not in the top rank of Geneva hotels, where the best are some of the best (and the priciest) in the world, but it's perfectly OK. I was there on business. It's not a particularly large hotel a bit set back from the lake. The lobby was quiet when I checked in. Room rather small with no view at all, but very clean and well fitted out. Having lived and travelled a lot in East Asia, I was pleased to note that there was a Japanese style bidet WC in the bathroom - not a very high tech one admittedly, but a nice touch and not something you see that often in Europe. Wifi included in the room price which is good. I ordered a simple room service meal which was very nice but extremely expensive for what is was. But that's Geneva for you I suppose.

The hotel is centrally located; journey from the airport to the city centre took only ten minutes, and then another ten minutes to walk from the train station to the hotel. The old town is just a bridge away from the hotel, and offers a great walk.

Just five minutes away is the famous Jet and lake, with views "to-die for". Only issue was that we got a room with a courtyard view, but service was very good. The amenities were also thoughtful, with even an umbrella in the room for those of us who travel without one.

Overall, value for money, and definitely a place I would stay again in Geneva.

I've visited this hotel on a business trip, and even if the style of the hotel was a bit 'classic' for my taste, it did offer all the small details that made my stay perfect. The room was spacious and clean, and the staff very friendly and helpful. The location of the hotel was excellent as it was located only a few minutes away from shops/cafes/restaurants. Overall my stay at the hotel felt like staying at a five star hotel.

i stayed in the hotel for two nights and the room was clean and spacious. The toilet was equally clean and the chambermaids were really nice. The staffs at the reception were pretty helpful too and even recommend where we can go for nice restuarants. The location were pretty good and was just minutes away from the train station. The hotel is a nice place to stay in Geneva and really appreciate the help from the hotel staffs.

We stayed here for two nights. Fortunate to get an upgrade to a superior room. It's was a huge room with a high ceiling and a Nespresso machine which I have at home. A massive king size bed and de ent bathroom. Also had BBC1 usefule for the news and watching when I need to go brain dead. The staff were outstanding in particular a young chap called Max who helped us with our restaurant reservations for Geneva on a Saturday night. He was an exceptional chap, very friendly and easy to speak to given my terrible command of French. All other staff we had dealing with we're also very courteous and friendly. Also the room was refreshed soon aft we went out as we had to come back later that morning to pick up our cameras. Great hotel and would definitely stay here again. Well done Briston Geneva and thanks
