Spotless hotel near Cornavin

Posted Sep 7, 2014
Pros: Clean, close to train station.
Cons: Perhaps offer a continental breakfast for 10 CHF. The buffet is very good but the surrounding restaurants are a better deal.
Location: Well you can walk to an awful lot. Within 15 minutes--restaurants, train station, old town, Manor, Globus and so on.
Cordial, competent staff set the tone for this extremely clean hotel just five minutes from Cornavin. The rooms are not big, there is some street noise (this is the Paquis), but I have found nothing more reliable and convenient at this price. I have stayed here twice and look forward to my next visit.

Very combinient to close to train station and tram to the city and UN area. Room is clean and comfortable. We went around 3pm to check in, but room was not ready, and I see they were still cleaning. It is so slow. I hope all the room is ready before 3pm.

Very good location in Geneva.

Posted Aug 24, 2014
Pros: Location near train station.
Cons: Breakfast should be offered gratis or reduced in price.
Location: We walked to Old Town from the hotel. We did not need to use public transportation. Old Town is a ten or fifteen minute walk away.
Travelled as couple and enjoyed staying at the Kipling.

Great hotel near the train station

Posted Aug 3, 2014
Pros: friendly and english speaking staff, beautiful room, location
Cons: internet a bit slow and unstable
Location: 5 min walk to train station, lake, lots of restaurant
Awesome place to stay. Even though it's a three star hotel it feels like a four star hotel. It has everything you need for the stay and the room is beautifully decorated. Location wisely it's about a 5 minutes walk from the train station and a 5 minute walk to the lake. The only thing that I can pick out is that is the internet connection is a bit slow and unstable, and the area is a bit ghetto at night. But overall greatly satisfied.

Superb Hotel, Central Location

Posted Jul 26, 2014
Pros: Location, attention to detail, friendliness of staff.
Cons: Can't honestly think of anything that could be improved.
Location: Perfect location within 5 min walk from train station. Perfect location for exploring the city - a short walk to the shops and lake.
Just returned from a 1 night stay at Hotel Kipling following a week's holiday in the French Alps with wife and 15 year old son. On reflection I wish we'd spent a week in Geneva but that's a different story. Only a 5 min. walk from the train station and walking distance to the major attractions, Hotel Kipling is a perfect choice for the short break traveller. This hotel is quite small which is a plus point, and provides a very high standard of accommodation without breaking the bank. Friendly staff and impeccable attention to detail - you couldn't wish for more luxury and comfort in a hotel. They don't serve evening meals but who wants to eat in the Hotel restaurant if you're on a short city break? Surely a major part of your trip is savouring the delights of the city restaurants and soaking up the atmosphere outside. They do however offer a superb breakfast which we really appreciated before checking out. We had 7 hours to kill after checkout before our flights so we were worried about having to cart our luggage around with us. No problem - the Hotel very kindly offered to keep our luggage safe for us while we explored the city giving us total piece of mind. Without hesitation I would thoroughly recommend Hotel Kipling for your stay in Geneva.

very pleasant hotel

Posted Jul 2, 2014
Pros: very comfortable,quite and friendly. good position
Cons: include a bath rather than a small shower
Location: central to the lake and the station
It was an enjoyable stay; the terrace from the room added to the ambiance because you could see the mountains. The facilities were excellent. The breakfast had many choices. The staff made you feel welcome
