“Faultless, with room service the highlight!”
Reviewed 15 May 2014

Check-in by Maxime at the reception was fast, efficient and friendly, and the room was well appointed and clean so no issues there. While the room rate is expensive, that's only in a relative sense because everything is expensive in Geneva. The highlight of my stay was room service: I ordered a mushroom soup and a squid-ink pasta and both were well worth the SFR44 (incl. tax) price! I was tempted to try their in-house restaurant but was basically too tired after my flight into Geneva. I only stayed one night here but wished it could be more. The hotel is only a short 3min walk to the lake.

What an exquisite stay in an exquisite city. From our arrival the staff were friendly and helpful, making us feel most welcome each and every time we entered the hotel.

The rooms are immaculately presented with a Parisian feel to them in cool, calming neural tones. The bed must have been super king in size but in no way dwarfed the spacious and airy room. Located right next to the lake the hotel is perfect for exploring the sights of Geneva and only a short ten minute walk from the train station.

Across the foot bridge towards the old town is a most resourceful supermarket in coop city, perfect for all of your holiday snacking needs.

Overall a good value hotel in an otherwise expensive city.

This hotel is in a wonderful location (near train station, the lake and walking distance to everything). The service is great, friendly staff, very clean rooms, super breakfast. I would come again with pleasure.

My friend and I stayed here for one night during the Geneva Marathon. It was the perfect location to participate in the event- a few steps away from Mont Blanc bridge. We were pleasantly surprised by the size and comfort of the room. It had little luxuries like bathrobes and slippers, turn down service and Nespresso machine. We indulged in the delicious buffet breakfast the next morning in a lovely setting complete with live harpist. The spa was tranquil, relaxing and clean. We thank the hotel for a great stay and much appreciate the late check out so we could have that extra time in the spa. A real gem in Geneva!

I stayed here for one night while in Geneva for work. The hotel is well located and I had a large, quiet room overlooking the square. The facilities were excellent with a fantastic bathroom, probably one of the best I've seen in European hotels. Professional staff and no problem leaving my luggage after checkout while I attended a meeting elsewhere in Geneva. Breakfast average. Main problem is that the room had a faint but lingering odour of cigarette smoke though, after a late arrival and and long day of travel it took me a while to recognise this. I mentioned this when I checked out and was advised that I had not chosen a non-smoking room. But there was nothing at the online booking stage to indicate that there were smoking and non-smoking rooms and this had not been mentioned to me when I checked in. If I need an overnight hotel with close proximity to the train station next time I am in Geneva, I'd stay here again if the rates are reasonable. For a longer stay I would probably look elsewhere.

The hotel is very comfortably located. Within walking distance from the train station (5 minutes from the airport) and old town. Has a very nice restaurant with live arfa music during breakfast and views of a small garden. Nice sauna with jaccuzi and a gym.

Dear Guest,

Many thanks for rating us and writing your comments on this platform.
The Bristol is perfectly located as you said, two steps from the lake in the very heart of the city and facing a garden on the back side.
An harpist plays music during breakfast time everyday, restaurant, bar and we also propose to our guests a wellness centre of more than 160 sqm with gym, jacuzzi, saunas and a colortherapy room! A gem in the city centre of Geneva...

Kind regards
