We should have researched the area that this hotel is located in as our room seemed to face the street where there were groups of noisy men standing around below our window for most of the night, just around the corner from the red light district of Geneva. But on the plus side, the proximity to the lake and old... More

Happy with the room, the staff and breakfast. Very clean and spacious. The only thing I would like to be aware in advance would be the location. Not the best neighborhood in town. Would go again but only on a business trip.

At the centre, perfect location, also close to good restaurants and cafes. Public transport from this hotel is very accessible and area is mixed with old and young residential areas. Not the most modern hotel. Breakfast is somewhat below average for the price you pay. Room is ok, you pay more for location. Good cocktail overall.

I agree with a number of the comments. Very small room, small bathroom for 240 ChF but I suppose this is Geneva and you must expect it. Gourmet Bar, does Novotel not understand the word Gourmet? very poor choice of food. Dirty glasses not removed every day and the 4th floor smelt of what my wife calls 'drains' . I... More

Got there with my children, one in a pram and 5 pieces of luggage. My husband had to lug it down flight of stairs with no bell boy to help.

Excellent hotel, very comfortable large room and king bed, free Wi-Fi in room. Well located a 5-10 minutes walk from the train station, bus terminal and the Lake. Lots of cafes and restaurants nearby. No restaurant, but buffet style breakfast substantial. Staff very helpful and knowledgeable, booked a couple of trips through reception
