We booked four rooms at the Bristol on the way to a group skiing holiday. The hotel is in a great location just back form the lake and a short walking distance to the shops and restaurants of downtown Geneva.
We arrived in the rain and had to drag our bags from the busy street into the lobby dripping and cranky - no sign of a porter nor any rush by the lobby staff to assist. Once checked in the lobby staff did take over and the bags were promptly delivered to the rooms.
The rooms are fairly average - our loft was large for a European hotel and had plenty of room to stretch out. The double bed was small and soft. The cracked walls and 60's decor did not justify the CH675 cost. Only one of the two TVs in the rom worked.
The steep, narrow stairs to the bed area and the vault required to get into the bath / shower make this room totally unsuitable for anyone with mobility issues.
As noted in other reviews, the lifts are small and slow so grow gatherings in the lobby took some organising.
Geneva is an expensive city and so are the bar and restaurant at the Bristol - even so CH22 for an Irish Coffee seems steep.
Overall this is an ok hotel in a good location.
Expect 3 star facilities and hope for 4 star service.
