“Great place to stay”
Reviewed 12 April 2014

Friendly helpful staff, superb breakfast choice, in fact one of the best I have stayed in for breakfast options. I had the a la carte but didn't need to as there was ample smoked salmon on the buffet. Great rooms with decent coffee. We booked a junior suite so very quiet as on the top floor (5 floors) location is excellent, walking to the lake is 5 minutes if that. We were given a free boat travel card which allows use of the yellow boats, great fun for getting around. The card also allows use of trams. We will stay again.

Located close to the train station and a few minutes walk from the lake front promenade, the Eastwest is an attractive boutique style hotel. Staff are helpful and efficient, and the rooms are tastefully decorated and comfortable. Recommended.

Eastwest is a convenient 5 minute walk from the train station, but once inside, you feel you are in an oasis miles away. Don't let the small, darkish lobby decorated like a cocktail lounge fool you, the rooms are attractive, clean and provide all you need. We especially enjoyed having a Nespresso machine in the room--an improvement over the typical Mr. Coffee, as well as the robes and a refrigerator. It was easy getting to all parts of Geneva from Eastwest's great location and especially easy to catch the train to Lausanne for a day trip. Eastwest is a gem.

The location of the hotel is very good. Interior is also very nice and modern, good quality bed and all furniture looks new and neat.
But there is also a big disadvantage for people with insomnia, you can hear everything in a rooms above you, below you and from the street.

Have just returned from a long weekend in Geneva. The railway station leads almost directly from Geneva airport. A free rail ticket can be obtained from a machine at the airport and Geneva centre and the Eastwest hotel are just one stop on the train.
The Eastwest hotel is ideally situated between the railway station and Lake Geneva and is within easy walking distance of both. Although the hotel is only a short walk from the station, it can be a little confusing when you first arrive. However if you ensure that you walk in the direction of the lake, you are at least heading the right way for the accommodation.
The staff in the hotel were, without exception, pleasant, friendly and efficient. Our room on the fouth floor was clean, well equipped and comfortable.
Although we ventured further afield for breakfast, we ate at the hotel in the evenings and the food was of a high standard.
In addition to a complimentary bottle of water in the room when we arrived, it was a lovely touch when we were given some 'takeaway' bottles on our departure.
Would definitely recommend the Eastwest hotel and would stay there again if travelling to Geneva.

We stayed at the Eastwest hotel for two nights and had a very pleasant rime. The rooms are "cosy" but comfortable and well equipped including an Nespresso machine.
The hotel is well positioned for the lake, the old town, and the shopping, and has two excellent restaurants on the other side of the street (reservation recommended).
They serve a good, but expensive breakfast, and have a small restaurant for evening meals.
Overall a good value hotel and one I would use again.

In terms of value for money, Eastwest is one of the best hotels I have stayed in the world. I visited for one night, on a Saturday.
The room was not the most spacious room I have stayed in Geneva, but it is very well fitted and features a high standard bathroom. Nespresso machine, TV add to the decoration.
Staff were great at all times and helped me out in my desperate attempt to find a bar to watch the rugby in!
This will certainly be my hotel of choice for future visits to Geneva.
