It is all about location...location...location - walking distance from train station, in front of tram station, next to Lidl super market, walking distance from Lake Geneva and Botanical Garden. It serves the purpose for a family or business visitor. Price is expensive (and fluctuates wildly depending upon the season!) but so is everything else in this city.

We were in a Standard-Room which was labelled "from CHF 615" with CHF 30 extra for breakfast. The room was clean but run down. There were holes in the carpet, fissures in the curtain and spallings in the bath. The bucket in the bathroom had lost its cover and a bulb its light. The room was situated to the street,...

I reserved the junior suite for 3 adults and 1 child for 1 week. Advantage : 1. The Hotel is clean and the bed was comfortable & cozy. 2. The staff were very friendly except some of them. 3. The tram is opposite to the hotel's door and you can use the free public transport card. 4. The Nsspresso capsules...

Not up to 4 star standard decor And size of room poor bathroom clean but tired expect better Good location for getting around geneva Food expensive and hall carpet very tired and worn! Disappointing for the amount of money you are paying and given 4 star standard falls short!

Absolutely gorgeous hotel! 10 minute walk from main tourist area. Beautiful, clean facilities, amazing breakfast, room was huge and spotless. Geneva itself didn't have too much going on but we were lucky to have stayed at this hotel. Staff were extremely helpful and friendly, trying their very best to speak english to us.

I have stayed at many hotels in Geneva, on business, several times per year, over many years. The choice is made for me, based on availability and price, so I get some variety! The Royal Manotel claims to be a 4 star hotel. Location is on the rather run down Rue de Lausanne, next door to a Lidl supermarket (which...

This comfortable hotel has a welcoming, attentive, well-informed staff. The junior suite was comfortable for an 8-night stay. Good air conditioning kept us comfortable throughout the hot spell (up to 90 degrees F) that lasted much of our visit. The hotel is a short tram ride (one stop) from the rail station that serves as Geneva's public transportation center. At...

This hotel is in a decent central location but is mediocre for the money you pay. If you have a car, add on an extra 45CHF for parking in their basement (no other option). Ask for a non-smoking room (unless, of course, you're a smoker) because the smoking rooms really smell very stale and bad. We were informed that breakfast...

Spent two night at the Royal. The Staff was friendly and the rooms spacious. However, while I understand that energy conservation is good they overdid it. In one of the rooms the AC was not working and even though we complained (twice) they came up to check and left without solving the problem - the result was a hot and...
