We booked this hotel but when we got there to check-in, the location was really bad and was very scary. WILL NOT RECOMMEND THIS TO ANYONE WHO WANTS TO STAY WITH FAMILY. There were people roaming in streets at midnight and seemed like a lot of drug dealers/pimps/hookers were on the street. VERY UNSAFE location. We never checked in or went inside and checked into another hotel.

Dear valued guest. We do apologize if the district did not meet your expectations, Like many cities, Geneva has its “red light” activities. To avoid any discomfort we recommend our guests to walk out to the right side of the hotel entrance when going for a stroll. Please let us also emphasize that Switzerland and Geneva are known for its safety and quality of living. Sincerely yours,

Nice hotel close to Cornavin train station and restaurants, cafes, bus stops and in the street in the back of the hotel you have a laundromat. The location itself it's not very nice at night, you have a lot of people loitering and the prostitutes are around the corner. But you just have to be careful if you are returning to the hotel too late. Overall the hotel is clean and quiet. They also have a security personnel for patrolling the hotel all the time, especially at night. The gym is open 24/7 and the spa; sauna and steam room are open until latte. The room service was excellent, they came every day and the lady did an outstanding job cleaning our room, changing the duvet cover every day and sheet and cleaning the bathroom and shower as well, this was a plus I have to admit. The breakfast costs SF29, it is a buffet with a large variety to help you start the day. It's a good selection but not for everyday. Overall we have a great time in Geneva and our stay in Novotel was very pleasant.

Great Hotel Terrible Location

Geneva is, I have recently discovered, not my favorite place. It is the Myrtle Beach of Europe, with all the charm, cleanliness, and safety that title implies. Novotel is not responsible for the embarrassing mess that Geneva has become, and this particular hotel has good facilities, and a very well trained and consistent staff. But the hotel is in Pacquis, at the North end of the red light district, and so you may have the pleasure of being awoken at 02:00 by a fight across the street at one of the many bars. And you will certainly be assaulted by the incessant barrage of smokers on every street, if not the collection of thugs and beggars on every corner. But the rest of Geneva really isn't much better, so if you have to visit this place, Novotel is a nice hotel.
