Review - Hotel Kipling, Geneva

While recently in Geneva for a short business trip, I was floundering as I had not made any pre-arrangements.

I started googling and calling up friends and it was then I chanced upon this hotel's website. The website was beautiful and quite convincing. 

I called up the hotel and was further surprised to see that they were giving me 50% discounts on their rates! - I booked it right away!

I reached in the night about 10pm and was received by attendant called Sebastian. He was quite helpful.  He helped me get in my room comfortably and also gave me a few tips for where I was supposed to go. 

Review - 

1. Location - Its quite centrally located on Rue De La Navigation which is perpendicular to famous Rue de la Lausanne road. Presumably not more than 10 minutes from city's railway station at Cornavin

2. Cleanliness - Room was quite clean , though it was bit small - I stayed in Room no. 205 - remember floor no. 2 only has non-smoking rooms. If you are a smoker, please ask for 3rd or 4th floor rooms which have a balcony. 

3. Customer service - It was quite decent, they dont ask for extra money for small things like print outs, etc

4. Pricing - It was decently priced for me atleast, after the discount. remember to ask for a hefty discount when you call them. (Not this for that matter, you should do at all the hotels when you are calling)

Overall - I would recommend this to people coming on business as they can go around the city very comfortably because of its location.
