“Excellent lakeside hotel in Nyon”
Reviewed 28 October 2013

We stayed 5 nights at this hotel in September and were extremely pleased with it. The hotel is clean, modern and the staff were very efficient. Our room was very comfortable and we had the benefit of a balcony and lake view. Breakfast was fine, not at all sparse as another reviewer has commented, although in common with most smaller hotels, and some larger ones, the hot offering could have been better - but then we are not keen on firm scambled egg but others will like it this way. There was nothing wrong with the beds or the air conditioning!

The location of the hotel is perfect. There are restaurants and bars close by, it is a short walk to the boat jetty, there is a bus service to the station although it is only a relatively short walk uphill to the castle, the town centre and the station.

Room Tip: Go for the superior lake view rooms.

We had a longer than average stay at this hotel. there were a couple of things we needed to be more comfortable long term, and my requests were met with such ease by the staff on reception, and fulfilled that day, that I knew we were in great hands for the rest of our time there. I found the staff there delightful in their individuality. This is not a hotel with uniformed staff, who had their personalities trained out of them. Rather it is staffed by real people who happily take care of you as they would a member of their family. Perhaps that is why it is called the Hotel Real.
Breakfast was a little sporadic. The cooked food ran out, and was not replenished unless you asked them. We could not decide if this was good or bad planning. If we requested hot food, we had freshly cooked breakfasts, but had to wait for them to be cooked. Some people just walked away disappointed, and did not request more food. It seemed to us as if this could have been improved somehow. Right on the lake front and fabulous views.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the lake, and with a balcony, so you can really enjoy the view.

Right on Lake Geneva (Lac Léman) in the quaint village of Nyon.

What I liked about this hotel:
1. Covered public parking next to hotel.
2. Room rates decent for something right on the lake.
3. Located at start of pedestrian zone.

What did not impress me about the hotel:
1. Bed extremely uncomfortable.
2. Air conditioning difficult to adjust.
3. Breakfast is sparse (I realize that the French-speaking world is not so big on breakfast, but this is a destination for tourists, too!).

Room Tip: Rooms with direct view to lake noisy (on a main road).

We stayed one night at the very service oriented REAL in July. Our lake-view room was excellent, in a modern style, with a flooring that was part tiles and part wood - very hygenic. The room and bathroom were well-equiped (including a TV in the bathroom) and the air conditioning was quiet and effective. The view of Lake Geneva directly in front of the Hotel was wonderful.

this is the 4th stay for work @ it does not let you down.The staff are great rooms small but perfect setting fab. Will stay again when working in nyon as it feels like a home from home ! I suggest you ask for a lake view room as its worth the extra cost but if there are none the view over the street to the castle is also good

I always try to stay there when I go to Nyon on business trips. The central location is very convenient, it's not too big but has the facilities I need (good restaurant, bar, wifi, good breakfast) and the staff are extremely helpful and friendly.
