Nice hotel well located at a competitive price in Geneva

Everything about this hotel is nice. The room size, bathroom, comfortable bed, good pillows and sheets. I wish breakfast was cheaper though.

Staff was very helpful with our questions and requests. Very convenient for public transit. Only 3 blocks from the main train station and 1 block away from tram and bus service.

The rooms are very small and they don't distinguish between non-smoking and smoking rooms so we had to stay in a smoking toom that smelled quite bad. Also the parking is very expensive! You can park at a public garage 5 minutes away for less.

Hotel Kipling is in a good location, close to the train station and an easy walk to the water front and old town. The staff is excellent. The room is clean, nice and quiet at night. I highly recommend.

Good hotel. Everything perfect except for the hot water had low pressure in my room.

i enjoyed my stay in town, and the hotel was quite close to public tranportation and the the main central station. a lot of good restaurants around the hotel and a quiet neiborhood.

Arrived early in the morning after an overnight flight from the States. Even though it was 6 or 7 hours before check in they gave me a room. Ordinarily there is an additional charge for early or late check in, but the desk clerk said they weren't busy so they would just give me the room. All of the staff -- desk clerks, housekeeping, breakfast person, et al were courteous, friendly and helpful. I've stayed in the Hotel Kipling before and will certainly do the same on the next trip to Geneva.

Hotel rooms are comfortable and spacious (especially by Geneva standards). Ample desk space and outlets. Very good wifi (and its free). Great location. Just off the main Rue de Lusanne and easy walk to Cornavin station. Wide variety in the breakfast spread (but a bit pricey as is usual in Geneva.). The rooms on the front along Rue de la Navigation can be a bit noisy due to garbage trucks early in the morning....suggest to request a room on the back side if possible. Otherwise, great value for the money.

About three blocks walk to the train station, and about for blocks to Lake Lemon. Nice room.

Nothing spectacular, but a clean, modern, well-run hotel in a good location for those in Geneva for international meetings. Consistent with other Manotel properties, with free wi-fi and overpriced breakfasts; helpful, friendly staff.

Rue de la Navigation 27 Geneva GE

Dear Madame, Thank you for your nice review following your stay with us here at the Kipling. I am sorry to hear that you had to stay in a room that smelled of smoke...we normally offer only non smoking rooms but unfortunately we sometimes have someone who smokes in the room anyway...I apologize for the inconvenience. Concerning the price for the parking it is true that you can find public garage close by for a little bit less but otherwise our rate is more or less in line with what you can find in Geneva. Hopefully we will have the opportunity to welcome you back to the Kipling soon again! Kind regards
