Figure out where to stay with our handy guide to Geneva accommodation...
Geneva is a great city break destination, and hotels in Geneva area used to welcoming international stars and diplomats, so you'll find a plethora of four- and five-star hotels offering absolutely top-notch service. There are many budget hotels too, plus a good choice of mid-range accommodation.
As well as a plethora of locally run and managed hotels, there are many from the well-known chains. Look out for properties from Intercontinental, Holiday Inn Express, Best Western, Swissotel, NH Hoteles, Ramada, Mandarin Oriental, Novotel, Crowne Plaza, Moevenpick and Manotel.
While hotels in the central area are in big demand, there are other options. Just east of the central area is Eaux Vives, which is also home to a good range of hotels and features more open spaces and parkland than the centre. Les Paquis, north of the river, has a distinctly more bohemian air and you'll find a greater diversity of cuisine, plus a number of cheaper accommodation options in what was once considered to be the grittier part of Geneva.
The finest five-star hotels are mostly located on the shores of Lake Geneva or nestled up close to the mountains on the outskirts of the city, where acres of wonderful gardens are your reward for being located further from the action.
