Quality Hotel in a Great Location by the Lake

Posted Apr 16, 2015
Had to find a new hotel when my usual choice wasn't available during this trip. Did a bunch of online research, looking for quality at a reasonable (for Geneva) price. The Hotel Bristol surpassed my expectations - wonderful staff, clean, updated room, pleasant atmosphere. Wonderful. This will now be my regular hotel in Geneva.

Comfortable and convenient

Posted Mar 20, 2015
Pros: The room, the bed, the spaciousness, the decor, the location, the location, and the location.
Cons: We had to prompt the clerk for the city transport card.
Location: To eat, forget the tourist area and have cheese fondue at Cafe du Soleil. Better tired and satisfied than tired and disappointed.
We needed a hotel for one night as a stayover for our flight back to the USA. We usually stay at another well-regarded hotel, but could not get a room for just a single night. We lucked into the Bristol after a little bit of study, and would happily return. The bellman brought our bags up quickly, and was very courteous our entire stay. (We had tipped him rather well, but I'm sure he'll be nice to you, too.) The room is surprisingly spacious, well appointed, and comfortable, at least if you travel below the level of a secretary of state. Truly felt like an oasis. You are seconds from the waterfront, and minutes from the Old City. Plenty of shopping if that's what you're into. Be sure to ask the clerk for a city transport card, which allows you to ride around for free.

One day in Geneva

Posted Dec 28, 2014 on Hotels.com
I could not be happier with our stay. We had only one day to spend in Geneva so location was important for us. The hotel was within walking distance to the old town area and the concierge was extremely helpful in suggestions of what to see and do. They arranged our transportation to the airport as well as recommended shops. Our room was spacious and comfortable as well as beautifully appointed. Staff was very accommodating and friendly. Would highly recommend.

Un 4* de bon aloi. Service impeccable

Posted Dec 10, 2014 on Hotels.com
Grande chambre impeccablement rénovée. Pas vraiment un hôtel de charme ni un palace, mais une bonne alternative qualité/prix. Localisation centrale près de la Gare et en plein centre, même si pas la plus chic de Genève. Bon restaurant. Service efficace et attentionné

Well located hotel in the heart of geneva

Posted Nov 19, 2014
Pros: It's the staff . Quite superb from the guy greeting you on the door to housekeeping, bar restaurant and reception all very friendly and caring
Cons: Can't think of anything
Location: Great shopping and a good walk on a Sunday
Haven't stayed here for over ten years so a little anxious to see how it was now. Still excellent rooms have been refurbished and are more functional than charming but for the price location and service there is nothing to fault

Elegant hotel with four-star staff close to all.

Posted Oct 30, 2014
Pros: Service, friendliness, helpfulness, attitude. Heated towel bar, evening housekeeping, music in bar. Spa in basement. Wifi included.
Cons: Some of the furnishings could be refreshed. Music should be included, not an extra charge. Sometimes the housekeepers were audible in the hallway.
Location: Buy a watch. Buy several. Geneva is the world capital for watches. Take the free ferry boats (included with room charge). Telepherique (cable car).
I stayed three nights at Hotel Bristol in late October. It's a bit of a quiet time in Geneva, so easy to get a room. The hotel staff are very service oriented and very helpful. Nice live music in the bar in the later afternoon and evening. The location is perfect: right amongst all the four and five star hotels near the water. English and French: not a problem for either language, and they switch back-and-forth too! Parking is a bit of a struggle, as with all downtown European hotels. But staff will of course help with luggage, taxis, etc. I had the "classic" room which is a room with a real king sized bed, which was very comfortable. The room was clean, and housekeeping was good, except that as with all popular and busy hotels, the furnishings do show signs of wear fairly quickly. On the other hand, the heated towel bar was a nice touch of elegance, and also kept the bathroom warm which was great at shower time. Big TV in the room, but movies and music are at an extra charge, so bring your own. On the other hand, Internet connectivity was included in the price of the room, and was comfortably fast for a hotel. I had one room service breakfast, and compared to most U.S. hotels, it was very reasonably priced (and good!). I did not try the buffet breakfast downstairs. There is a small spa in the basement with a hot tub, steam room, sauna, and exercise room. Very nicely appointed. The Bristol asks a four-star price, but I think I got a four-star experience for it.
