Very close to the main railway station. I had to wait ten minutes to check in because the staff was busy with a lady in front of me. But the room was good. Everything done in "Kipling style". Clean and a nice tub. Bed was very good. This hotel is a very good alternative to the luxury hotels a few...

A good hotel for business guests - its proximity to the main city station in Geneva makes it particularly appealing. Sure, it doesn't have the glamour of those with a lake view - but it doesn't have their price tags either. The rooms are reasonably sized and perfectly decorated. The large bed was extremely comfortable. Also, nice bathrooms. The breakfast...

I stayed here a few nights and it was okay - nothing to write home about. The hotel is centrally located and a stone's throw away from the tram, but I wouldn't say it is the best location to stay in for a holiday. The hotel has a unique design and rooms are small. It is a bit pricey, but...

The hotel staff are a delight and the hotel itself sparkling. It's position makes access to the Palais Des Nations, the UN building easy by tram. However, as with all accommodation in Geneva, it's not cheap.

We had a wonderful stay at Kipling. We were grateful to be allowed to check in a little bit early, and were happy to find that the room was comfortable, spacious, and very clean. The bed was amazing. We were sad to only stay one night!

Stayed here for two nights for my birthday. So it was nice having a warm welcome at the reception and the staff was very friendly. The decorations in the hotel were "colonial" and the pictures on the walls were all very interesting. The room was well lit, spacious enough with good bed linens, while the bathroom had good amenities. The...

Lovely hotel close to Geneva's Gare Cornavin train station. Everything is within walking distance -- Old Town is only a 20 min walk, and the United Nations a 30 min walk in the opposite direction. Free travelcard is useful, used the water taxi and was great to be out on the lake. Our stay did not include breakfast. Staff were...

Geneva is a really expensive place, especially on hotels and restaurants. Manotel has a few 3-stars hotels here priced slightly more expensive than everywhere else in the world but still acceptable. The Kipling, located slightly further away from the main street, was still convenient enough. The Geneva lake and the surrounding places are about 8 mins by walk, the UN...

Nice Clean hotel in good location with friendly staff. Hotel has all you need but the bar and restaurant are very expensive as is the rest of Switzerland. Located very close to train station. I probably won't visit Geneva again but if I did I would use this hotel.
