“Modern airport hotel in typical Novotel style”
Reviewed 21 January 2011

The rooms of the property have all been refurbished in the last few years and are equipped in the modern novation style of the Accor Hotel group. The hotel is located at the oposite side of the airport and there is not much to around the hotel. Also getting into town can be tricky - best is probably to take the hotel shuttle over to the airport and then the train downtown. The public areas are in a friendly decor but relatively small. The hotel is a good choice for a night but in my opinion not suitable for a longer stay or to explore Geneva.

The hotel is clean, the staff is very polite and kind, and helped a lot on scheduling taxis. The location is close to the airport, but, as it is located in French territory, it is farther from the airport than other hotels in the area. Despite of this, it is an excellent choice to whom is catching an airplane in Geneva Airport.

Accor tends to be unreliable (even dishonest) in terms of quality of their hotels and services and we try our best to avoid using their hotels. The Novotel Geneva Aeroport lives up to this low standard. The rooms are very shabby with no style, charm or effort. The hotel is depressing and dark, the rooms are sparse and extremely depressing. The beds are uncomfortable and everything feels unclean. Also, while they claim to have free wifi I was unable to get any access to the internet. I would not stay at this hotel and will avoid Novotel as much as possiblen.
The single upside it the proximity to the airport, but note that the airport is in France not Switzerland and completely isolated.

It was ok as a place to sleep, but essentially not much more. Location is in the middle of nowhere - only advantage is that it is reasonably close to the airport (although a 10 minute taxi ride across the french border).
Breakfast is unexciting, and the rest is just plain vanilla - and for this pretty expensive.

The reception desk staff along with the personnel in the restaurant and bar and even the cleaning lady in the mornings could not have been nicer or more helpful. You have to know what you're getting: a midmarket, chain hotel. For that, this is a very good to excellent one. We were amazed by how quiet the room was, not only did we not hear noise from other rooms, we never once heard a plane despite the proximity to the airport. The WiFi worked very well, a rarity in France. Yes, the room is relatively small, but this is not the US people! The desk set-up was very convenient the way you could roll it out. The coffee/tea-making facilities were great, the water in the bathroom was instantly hot. No, this is not a luxury hotel, but it does not pretend to be. For a hotel in the Geneva area, it is clean, quiet and very inexpensive. We had a nice meal on the terrasse by the pool and regretted not having our swimsuits. We did not have breakfast so I can't comment on that. I think the people in the review where they claimed the reception staff weren't helpful must have come in as the "ugly anglophone" travellers because everyone we encountered in this establishment were smiling, friendly, helpful and professional. The airport shuttle was a great bonus, but you do need a car for getting around if you're staying more than just for the airport. The only downside, which is typical in Europe, is that the air conditioning didn't really cool the room much.

There was an error with my original booking at a Geneva (Swiss side) hotel, so a quick internet check found this, and what a delight.

Half the price of the original, superlative location, excellent food, nice rooms.
Pretty gardens, and a swimming pool.
So next time in Geneva I will be here and not there, GREAT!!!!!
