About Hotel Bristol, Geneva

Luxury hotel with free WiFi near Cornavin Station

Right by Lake Geneva

Hotel Bristol is nothing if not conveniently located - a minute from Mont-Blanc bus stop, it’s also 600 meters from Cornavin Train Station. Geneva City Hall can be reached via a 20-minute tram ride, and the waterfront is a minute away on foot.

Terraces and timekeepers

Bourg-de-Four, the Old Town nerve center with a network of lively café terraces, can be reached via a pleasant 15-minute stroll over the river. En route, you will pass the Flower Clock, a botanical timekeeper whose flower display tells the time with Swiss precision.

Scenic dinner

The wellness center’s earth-toned decor, hot tubs, and steam room are enough to assuage the most stressed out guest. Côté Square serves a seasonal local menu along with views of Mont Blanc Square, while post-dinner drinks take place in the Piano Bar.

Nespresso® and news

The hotel’s 100 stately rooms are a mix of comfort and stylish chic, thanks to cozy beds, pillow menus, and 24-hour room service. You can start the day in style thanks to a Nespresso® machine, and there’s also free WiFi and wired Internet access as well as free papers to keep abreast of the news.

We got a free upgrade to an apartment suite on the top floor overlooking the city. Can’t complain!

Will return
A little hard to find, but worth the effort. Great location, service, comfortable beds. Will stay there again next time that I am in Geneva

Nice surprise
I arrived at 9 am rather than 3pm as originally scheduled. I had notified the hotel requesting an early checkin at my expense. I arrived to find the only room svailable was a upgrade from my booking. I was quickly shown my room and given a complimentary upgrade and early check in. Room and staff were very polished. Food is very good. I'll stay here again.

Very Good8.0
Great location, a little dated - excellent staff
Hotel has a perfect location and the reception/concierge staff could not have been more helpful. The hotel itself is dated - we had a superior room that could do with a refurb. Breakfast price is extortionate but with so many cafes and restaurants serving breakfast within 2 minute walk it was fine.

Even Better than advertised!
Clean, elegant, close to train station. Very comfortable bed, large room. Absolutely one of the best concierges I have encountered in my 34 countries if travel- thank you Nicolas.
