The Hotel is in the red light district with pimps and prostitutes hanging outside on the corner and next to the church. Given the number of other hotels on the main street, I don't understand why thee guys charge so much for such a bad area. Its amazing how 2 blocks from the main street Rue Lausanne makes. Beware.

When my colleague and I checked into this Hotel, we had one thing in mind...'stay the night in a shared double and take off the next day'. we were wrong. The General atmosphere was excellent, very clean rooms, helpful staff right from the reception to the maids. It's just that the breakfast bill is different from the accomodation one. It's... More

I always struggle with hotels in Geneva. They are so expensive and you get no value for money. It really bugs me that they can charge so much for a room and not even include breakfast. It is in the seedy area of Geneva, but it is close to the lake and train station. The rooms are outdated and not... More

Over the years I have stayed in many hotels in Geneva. Value for money originally was the prime reason my company set up a corporate arrangement with this Novotel. In retrospect this had been a good deal for both sides. With our business booking many room nights per year. Rooms are standard fare in this mid market chain. Taking advantage... More

The staff at this property are quite helpful and congenial. I have never really had a problem with the service. Please be careful when leaving the hotel at night. There are a few seedy lanes in back of the hotel with prostitutes and bars. It can get quite interesting. There is a 'Portuguese' restaurant a few blocks away that is... More

There's no doubting that Swiss hotels, to someone from the UK, are expensive, however in comparison with similar hotels in Geneva it is probably competitively priced. The hotel was clean and comfortable, although it's not located in the most attractive part of the city. The staff were extremely professional in their customer service approach. However, the breakfast, at 28CHF each,... More

The Novotel Geneva Centre is just that - centrally located and very convenient to all of what Geneva has to offer. A short (15 minute) walk from the central station, the hotel is an even shorter walk to the shores of Lake Geneva. The area teems with restaurants and shops. The hotel has a very good buffet breakfast and an... More

We were a bit worried because other reviews said about hotel being in red light district. We were back at hotel before 10pm every night and would'nt have known it was red light district. The hotel was very clean and the staff could'nt have been more helpful. Would definitely go back.
