Kipling is a solid mid-range hotel, the 3 star standard absolutely corresponds and a good value for money. The check-in was fast, friendly and professional. The rooms are medium-sized and well furnished. To the situation: very central, the train station is about 7-10 - minute walk away. The Genfer See can be reached on foot in 10 minutes. read hotel review

Middle class hotel close to the train station. To the center you have 20 minutes walk. In the immediate area but there are stops from buses and trains. Positive on arrival you can get a free ticket for the local transport. It applies to the whole stay. Also there is a functioning, free wi-fi. Very friendly and helpful staff. One receives many tips. Relatively big room. For Genf overall a very good value for money. The location the station has but also disadvantages. Already on the day the streets are in the immediate vicinity of 'ladies' and of twilight' sellers' ... lined. At night you better the main street. read hotel review

The hotel itself is in colonial style equipped, lots of dark wood and bright MTI, warm fabrics. Very attractive. The room room was very small, but that was okay, it was just a little too warm. The location was for me as a single people on business trip not recommended, as it is located in the red light district which is. A brothel and Gogobar after the other. read hotel review

The hotel is small and beautiful, the service is the best and the staff were friendly and helpful. The location in the red light district of Geneva is not necessarily a plus, especially if you get back to the hotel at night, you will be harassed by drug dealers. This is no obstacle, however, to book this hotel-it is really nice. read hotel review

The hotel is located in the centre approximately five-ten minute walk from the train station in a small quiet side street. The tram stops on the main road nearby. This small hotel is very tastefully equipped and in very good condition. There is free Internet access in the rooms. The staff at the front desk and at the breakfast are always very friendly and personally-it has a good feel. The breakfast buffet offers plenty of choice for a small hotel, and is of good quality. The price of 18 CHF is quite cheap, but the overall rate is high even ... if the lodging and Geneva standards still adequate. read hotel review

The competence of the receptionist was very accommodating and pleasant excellent flexibility. Therefor, the friendliness of the service staff (breakfast) to be desired. Due to its central location and all public transport is very easy to reach and the free day ticket for the guests for almost all a good and useful Suplement public transport. The price/performance ratio, so high price and Swiss performance ratio I didn't think was appropriate. read hotel review

The hotel is just around the corner from the tram station about 500 meters from the train station mole away. It's a little bit 'themed Hotel' (Kipling/tropics), etc., which was very pleasant (flowers, candles, etc.)the rooms are small but comfortable (Geneva). The service was found good enough. The rooms are air-conditioned (individually adjustable). Wi-Fi is included in the room rate, but quite slow (1 Mbit/s). The bed was too hard for my taste. The breakfast was well arranged but very fresh and tasty. The night in the single room with breakfast 220 Franc cost. For Geneva you can ... be satisfied. read hotel review

A hotel with a lot of Charme archived
  • Recommended hotel

The hotel is located in the middle of the red light quarter of Geneva. This does not detract from the Charme of the hotel, on the contrary. The rooms are not very big but with a lot of love and Charme equipped, sympathized with the colonial style to Kipling. Pictures of exotic birds, palm trees and landscaping from distant countries depend on the walls. The minibar was an offer based on seafood and Ledereinfassung and one! The bath is likewise in the old style but with modern technology fitted out. Everything needed was a stay for available, including make-up mirror ... and Kleenex. With the warm red on the walls and the beautiful wooden floors you feel in a past era back without but the present comfort. I was lucky to receive a room on the fifth floor with a beautiful roof terrace. tv, internet access (free of charge) are available as well as a bottle of mineral water, and a chocolate. The breakfast room is pleasantly equipped and the buffet was well stocked. In Paola is friendly and competent, and parking spaces are usually (surcharge) enough. Around the hotel had different bars and restaurants, but these correspond to the base. My stay was business nature, I felt very comfortable in this hotel and was able to relax after a long day at work very well. I think the hotel is more like a four stars hotel than the three stars. Can't recommend it highly enough. As the Geneva train station nearby and it is not far to the city of Geneva around the Mont Blanc bridge to explore, it is also very well suited for sightseeing. read hotel review
