Peter Business - Confirmed reviews ALL

Was disappointed that windows could not be opened. Otherwise pleased

Your satisfaction with these aspects of your stay brings us immense pleasure. However, we note your disappointment regarding the windows.

Great value for money in Geneva!

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

Ayla A TripAdvisor review

We stayed for one night as a family of 2 adults and 2 young children. It was a comfortable stay. We picked this hotel because it was a short walk away from the station (about 10 mins) and the cheapest hotel that we could find in Geneva as we were only staying for one night. Welcoming reception. Only thing I wound say is that there was no special decoration in the room as we did mention in advance we were celebrating an anniversary. The breakfast was great! Fresh pancakes from the pancake machine which the children loved and lots of options. Great value for money and a short walk away from the lake front too. Thanks for a comfortable stay!

Dear Guest, Thank you for reviewing your recent experience. It is gratifying to know that you found Novotel Genève Centre to offer great value for money and that our location conveniently allowed you to enjoy the nearby attractions. We sincerely regret to hear that the special decoration for your anniversary was not provided as expected. While we strive to honor guest requests, it appears we missed an opportunity to enhance your celebration. Rest assured, we are reflecting on this oversight to ensure our guests' special occasions are acknowledged appropriately. Your kind words about our breakfast variety and the joy it brought to your children are truly appreciated. We take pride in offering a diverse range of fresh and tasty options to start the day off right. We hope to welcome you back. All the best. Nicolas Goureau General Manager

Clean but couple of issues that would make me think twice before returning

Customer review rating 3.0/5

Anon Families - Confirmed reviews ALL

Pro's Clean hotel and rooms, majority of staff very friendly, nice food in the bar Con's One breakfast manager very impolite, telling me I hadn't given my room number when my wife right next to me has, maybe because my wife an I look different she didn't assume we'd be together, but we live in a multicultural world these days. For over £200 a night I don't expect to see very overripe speckled brown bananas at breakfast and looked down upon if I ask for a less ripe one (which wasn't available). Some of the chopped fruit couldn't have been fresh that day, you could see the apple breaking down. Needs something to keep milk cool, not everyone likes warm milk on their cereal. Frustrating one night when the bar area was closed to guests because of an event happening, could have made it more obvious for the rest of us guests beforehand. If I leave the sign on my door to say I am in/don't need anything, please respect that. Maybe we are a little more cautious than others after Covid but I do not want to spend time wiping over things after a member of your cleaning team has been in uninvited.

Dear Gavin, Thanks very much for your high rating of our hotel. It is heartening to note your appreciation for the cleanliness of our hotel and rooms, as well as the friendliness exhibited by the majority of our staff. Our dedicated team strives to maintain high standards of cleanliness and guest service at all times. However, we regret to hear of the shortcomings you experienced in certain aspects of our service. While our breakfast buffet aims to offer a variety of fresh options, we apologize if the fruit selection did not meet your expectations. We also take note of your concerns regarding the temperature of milk and will consider ways to ensure it is served to guests' preferences. Furthermore, your experience with housekeeping is concerning, and we will reinforce our protocols to ensure that guests' privacy is upheld at all times. Additionally, we understand the importance of a reliable Wi-Fi connection and apologize for the difficulties you encountered; we will work to address these connectivity issues. On a brighter note, we are pleased that you enjoyed the offerings at our bar and found the food to your liking. Our Gourmet Bar prides itself on providing a welcoming atmosphere and a diverse menu that caters to various tastes. We hope that we will have the pleasure of welcoming you back, providing an opportunity to deliver a more seamless and enjoyable experience. Warm regards, Nicolas Goureau General Manager
