    Superb

    It's like coming home. I always stay in the Metropole when I come to Geneva. Staff are always helpful and accomodating; the rooms are luxurious, if a little small. The restaurant is excellent; quality of food, service and presentation all of a high level.

    My one gripe is cost...

    Price is to high because for the same price I can stay in Kempinsky or President Wilson and to get corporate rate you are to complicated compared with those two

    Good

    Design, rom comfort and service were good enough

    Too noisy for the room with lake view. Prices are high. For such rates intrnet access must be 24h for free

  • 8.8
    Superb

    The location is ideal for exploring the lake and the surroundings such as Chamonix

    The noise from the road at the front and the music at week-ends

    Superb

    We had two children with us - 6mos old and 3 year old. the staff were great with the kids. there was a special nappy bin in the bathroom without having to ask for one. There was a complimentary soft toy for the kids. The only drawback was that at the entrance to the hotel there were several steps up to the lifts which was difficult with a heavy pushchair but the hotel staff were very helpful with lifting this up with the children inside up to the lift level. we asked for intercommunicating rooms which was supplied- an excellent arrangement. We were also given a very late checkout which helped with our late flight. Highly recommend this hotel. Excellent central location. Found it a bit on the pricey side but that was due to the exchange rate.
