The hotel is located near the red light district. Around the hotel are many drug dealers. Is a quite dangerous area to walk alone evening. The lobby looks new and modern. The room ( superior) was not comfortable. The furniture looked so old fashioned.the bathroom was poor ( little bit dirty,small bath tube, shower not working well) The bed was too hard. Furthermore,you can hear everything what's going on outside. Summary: Bed uncomfortable Air condition too noisy You can hear the noise from other rooms Bath was little bit dirty Old fashioned furniture Do not recommend for ... business trips. At the end you're even more tired. Totally disappointed for the price I paid for that room! Never again read hotel review

Excellent hotel for business travel

My colleagues and I have been working in Geneva for the past few months and have several hotels in the Paquis area and near Rue de Lausanne. So far the Novotel has been one of the best to meet all our requirements and we enjoyed our stay. The welcome from the staff at the hotel on arrival was friendly and provided us with all the information we needed for the duration of our stay. The hotel was very clean and well looked after. My room was clean and all facilities were in working order. The bathroom was a good with ... a very stylish sink - very useful for a lady with cosmetics. The only small issue i would have is the layout of the entrance when entering the room, particularly in the hallway. The lightening was poor and I couldn't see in the main mirror very well. it was very dark despite all lights switched on in the room. Also trying to maneuver between the wardrobe/ entrance door etc was pretty tight. It would have been easier to also have an iron board in the room but this is personal preference. The hotel has a gym which is rather small but has the majority of equipment which is needed for a stay away from home. I didn't get a change to use the sauna facilities but will update my post when i next stay there. The breakfast options were great and layout suitable for breakfast dining. We didn't try the evening meals at the hotel as there are many places nearby to eat, plus the menu in the hotel was quiet expensive for what you get. but than again so is most of Geneva. There is a perfectly good Thai 2 mins away for scrummy food. The hotel itself is located near the red light district which several other reviewers have already highlighted, on arrival to the hotel we did think it was rather weird people were hanging around were doing but they did not pose a direct threat so went about our business. The hotel has security post 24/7 if any one has any issues. Overall I was very happy with my stay and plan to be a stay regularly when I am there on business trips. read hotel review

Actually a good hotel with underground parking bar and restaurant. We had an offer booked, in which the beverages in the minibar are inclusive. On the 2. day but it was the mini bar not refilled (we have the mini bar not emptied!), The capsules and sugar for the coffee maker was missing. The coffee cup ungerinigt again the frame. Normally (were already several times in this hotel) does the whole really good. read hotel review

An absolute great hotel in the center of Genf. It was located in the 'demi-monde', but this shall not affect the vacation ☺ the hotel is technically very well equipped and extremely decorated up to date - almost too modern. The rooms are for a city hotel very spacious. Also the bathroom with extra toilet is very functional. A hotel, the one can recommend much! read hotel review
