Set along the River Rhone among the majestic Alps, Geneva is a sight to behold, and many Geneva hotels offer incredible views of this global city and its surroundings. As the second most populous city in Switzerland, Geneva is a popular tourist destination with a wealth of attractions and a multi-cultural flair that ensures visitors will fall in love with this place.
In addition to the surrounding beauty, Geneva has graceful mansions, perfectly manicured gardens, and both classical and modern architecture to be witnessed firsthand. Attractions to explore after checking into your Geneva hotel include the Cathedral St. Pierre, the place where John Calvin preached; the Reformation Monument, which was dedicated to leaders of the Protestant Reformation; and the Jet d'Eau, which is the highest fountain in Europe.
Many world organizations hold their headquarters here, and several offer museums and galleries dedicated to their causes, such as the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum. The Palace of Nations, home of the former League of Nations, and now one of the four bases of operations for the United Nations is a popular draw and close to many hotels in Geneva.
Being such a modern city, and having both a Swiss and French influence, there are a number of luxury hotels offering the most pampered of stays, particularly in the city center. However, there are many Geneva cheap hotels to accommodate the more budget conscious travelers as well.
