excellent 4 star

Posted Aug 23, 2017
Cons: The breakfast at the Kipling hotel was inferior and over priced. We stayed at a similar hotel in Milan and had a full buffet breakfast for less cost
Location: Location was excellent, however there were some hookers in the area
this Kipling hotel is well located 5 min from the train station and 5 min from the lake. It is very reasonably priced with impeccably clean rooms. I found the front Desk staff very accommodating for my many questions. The only negative comment is the breakfast was inadequate and dreadfully overpriced. Geneva is a beautiful city, small enough to get around easily but unfortunately quite expensive

Comfortable hotel close to city centre

Posted Aug 21, 2017
Pros: The staff were very friendly and obliging and the room maintained in good order with a sizable bathroom. It provided good value for the money.
Location: The immediate location is not for the tourist. However central Geneva with the jet d'eau, lake front and historic old town easily reached on foot.
The hotel is only 10 minute walk from the train station which provides easy access to Geneva airport. This is not the best part of town, but felt safe. The hotel provided all the usual amenities and the room was well decorated and comfortable. The old town together with museums and shopping can be reached on foot within 15-20 minute walk.

Spacious room, busy area

Posted Jul 10, 2017
Pros: Clen rooms, large bed and bath, efficient staff. Great location close to the lake.
Cons: Triple glazing!!!
Location: The lake, the old city, some spectacular shopping, city tours by coach and water, and famous buildings including the International Red Cross Museum
Our stay was seamless. The room was clean and there was plenty of room, and a large, well-appointed bathroom too. The twin beds were very comfortable and gave us plenty of room to relax. The hotel reception staff were polite and helpful, efficiently ordering our taxi and marking points of interest on the map for us. The only downside was that there was some loud and horrible heavy rock music being played live at the weekend. Although it finished up in good time and didn't disturb our sleep, it certainly encouraged us to stay out for the evening as long as possible. Only 5 minutes stroll to a great sandwich shop and ice cream parolur, then another 5 minutes to the wonderful lake where we spent much of our day. The water was clear and beautiful, as was the nearby Rhone river. You could see mountains across the lake. Fabulous.

Nice 3 star hotel for travelers.

Posted Jul 3, 2017
Location: Location is 4 blocks from train station in an average small city district. Very diverse neighborhood with many small restaurants. Long walk to center
Staff is very helpful; breakfast is excellent value. Room size is small, bathroom is large and all fixtures worked well. Bed is firm but if you're tired then it doesn't matter. Duvets used on beds so cover option is limited. Convenient for main train station and trams.

Very good choice close to train station.

Posted Jun 5, 2017
Pros: Location to the train station. General cleanliness and maintenance of the facilities were very good. Staff friendly and helpful.
Cons: Breakfast buffet needs to be better maintained and offer more selection for the price.
Location: Geneva is an extremely expensive city. The nearly grocery store offers a fabulous selection of ready to eat meals at better prices then restaurants.
The Kipling is a very nice, practical hotel for those who want to take the train to the airport. A bit of a walk to old town Geneva but transit is close and very good. The staff were friendly and helpful with directions and suggestions. Our room was clean and well maintained. The neighborhood around the hotel can be a little gritty but in no way unsafe. At 18 SF per person we found the breakfast selection to be poor for the price.
