        • Family with children

          Staff was excellent

          Room was a bit noisy. The area around the hotel is a bit rough but very close to train station.

          • Average rating
        • Couple

          Friendly, small hotel. Fairly unexciting room but it had everything one needed and the bathroom was good. Nice breakfast room and the breakfast buffet was good. Location-wise, it is not in the prettiest area of Geneva but it is not far to walk to the lake and handy for the train station too.

          • Average rating
        • Older travelers

          We had a superb time. The hotel is excellent, in fact, it looks brand new. We had a great room with a balcony that had a table, chairs and a lounger (pity it rained!). Everything was spotlessly clean and in place. The hotel staff are friendly and helpful. I liked that you could make your own coffee and tea in the room and even the minibar items were reasonably priced. Good location too, close to the main shopping area and lots of restaurants. The hotel also has free wifi.

          I thought the breakfast was expensive at 18chf so we didn't have it. Oh, and the hairdryer didn't work.

          Hotel excellent.

          Although location was convenient, it was opposite a very noisy bar.

          Staffed 24 hours per day. Very quiet in spite of being close to the train station, bus station and a main road.

          I found the Kipling to be a very comfortable hotel at a fair price. I appreciated the excellent climate control and the quietness. ---- I will definitely consider the Kipling for my next visit to Geneva.

          Nice Decor, efficient staff, wifi available, convenient location, quiet, clean

          The bed was a little hard.

          • Average rating
        • Older travelers

          The hotel is beautifully furnished, with a distinctive atmosphere.

          A quibble would be that there was a card in our room, advertising the (expensive) breakfast, which said that breakfast would include the offer of various Indian specialities: the hotel has an Indian theme. Sadly this was not the case.

          Excellent size for the usual Geneva hotel rooms with very good air-condintioning and interiors. A pretty good morning breakfast too. The staff were generally courteous.

          I had made a 11-day booking and toward the end of my trip I shortened it by one night. I was surprised that the hotel was not willing to accommodate the request to cancel the last night's booking and charged me for it. Disappointing.

          Excellent location, walking distance from the train station and an easy walk down to the water, beautifully decorated, friendly helpful staff, delicious breakfast

        • Older travelers

          We particularly liked the way that the hotel had been decorated in the Rudyard Kipling theme. Also the close proximity to the train station and Lake Geneva.

        • Older travelers

          I found the staff to be very helpful. The breakfast was most satisfying. The location was ideal for a commute while being out of the way of the hustle of a gare location. We would most definitely come back here. We found it to be quite pleasant. Certainly, the helpfulness of the staff immediately solved a problem that we had in the very beginning. We incorrectly booked the wrong days for several tours, but the staff immediately straightened the problem out.
