Hotel Kipling - Manotel Geneva

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 March 2012

The hotel was adequate, and the staff friendly. Our room had no view, and overlooked a brick wall. The hotel is located within a short walk from the trainstation, and within walking distance to most attractions. I was not impressed with Geneva, and was ready to leave after two days.

Room Tip: The hotel is adequate if you have to go to Geneva. I recommend other beautiful places in Switzerlan...

Having just returned from 2 nights staying in this wonderful Hotel, I have to say it was everything and more that I hoped for.Had I taken too much notice of the reviews about the 'red light district' I could have been put off, fortunately I wasn't (yes it is near the red light district but did not cause any problems for my friend and myself). The receptionist on our arrival was so friendly and helpful (Jasmine I think her name was from Ischia),she showed us places to go and sorted out our free travel passes(which were great, not having to worry about change etc when jumping on and off buses, trains boats.The room was plenty big enough, with a beautiful bathroom with shower and bath, if anything the only problem was the room was too hot , we did eventually manage to cool it down a bit (if we had asked no doubt it could have been cooler!) The bed and pillows were perfect and for someone with a bad back that means a heck of a lot. All in all a very memorable place and very convenient for restaurants,just 10 mins walk to Lake. Wifi worked perfectly and was free. Although no restaurant 15% discount with their sister Hotels, we had a very pleasant Meat Fondue at the Hotel Eidlelweiss, including entertainment 'Swiss' style including yodelling!!!

Room Tip: Our room was 102 and faced the car park but no noise in the night

Stayed here for 2 nights. Easy enough to find when walking from the main station. Check in process very quick ans efficient. No restaurant in hotel, but you get 15% discount off other hotels in chain in the city

Room quite big, very clean. Decor very nice and cosy. TV - loads of French and ITV1 and BBC2 oddly enough

Breakfast usual continental rolls, toast, coffee, cold meats etc. Buffet style so you can get your money's worth...

Only negative was the pillows on the bed were very thin, so neded to use cushions to raise up to sleep.

We've been visiting this hotel since 2005 and the hotel offers the same high standard ever since then. Last visit was 19 feb 2012. Rooms are big and tidy, coffee making facililties in the room, good bathroom.. welcoming personnel and close to the train station. We'll come back soon.so ideally situated to explore Geneva or just spend the night to get to the airport.
