    Our opinion

    The Hotel Bristol Geneva provides guests with exclusive luxury in the centre of one of Switzerland’s most famous cities.

    Hotel description

    In the heart of Geneva, just a minute’s walk from the Pont de Mont-Blanc and the convergence of the Rhone River and Lake Geneva, is the four star superior Hotel Bristol Geneva. From the outside, this hotel has a very modern, urban look, with large windows on the ground floor in the restaurant, and a stone and white-washed façade. French balconies and red canopies romantically frame the guestroom windows. The lobby is as grand as the exterior, with a high dark wood desk carved with floral motifs. A lounge bar with dimpled red leather armchairs and sofas, mirrors sunk into the panelling, and traditional portraiture on the walls, welcomes you after your day of travelling. The Côté Square captures all aspects of sophisticated dining; in the grand design of the restaurant, the finesse of the food, and the impressive quality of the service. The menu features Swiss delicacies that have been lovingly re-invented to enhance flavour, and a selection of Italian dishes that further improve the variety. The in-house pastry chef prepares a delicate afternoon tea, which can be enjoyed well into the evening. The Hotel Bristol Geneva has its own well-equipped spa. Decoration crafted from stone and wood appears very natural, with dark soothing colours to accompany you in the Jacuzzi. Treatment rooms are enhanced by the changing colour of the mood-lighting. One particularly unique addition to the spa is the bio sauna, where guests can bask in the fragrances of tropical and native plants as they relax before stepping into the Steam Room. After a day spent relaxing and exploring Geneva, retire to your room. Guestrooms in the classic style follow a neutral palette of creams and natural light browns. Textured fabrics and a feature wall of lightly patterned wallpaper add a definite touch of luxury deserving of the hotel’s star rating. The marble bathrooms are light, fresh, and subtly chic. Higher room categories and suites begin to introduce a lighter colour scheme, focused around white with silver or gold. Deep reds or charcoals accent the pillows, throws, and furniture. The Bristol Suite is effortlessly sleek and spacious, and looks out, as many rooms do, onto a pretty courtyard removed from the bustle of Geneva. The Hotel Bristol Geneva is a stylish option that blends contemporary chic with classical elegance, thus providing a fitting gateway into the city.

    Geneva is a haven for cultural exploration, as well as retail therapy and culinary delights. Workshops, boutiques, and museums all provide an insight into Geneva’s cultural history and the watch-making that it is so well-known for. The Jet d’Eau fountain, as well as being a key landmark, once provided the workshops throughout Geneva with power. For a further taste of cultural history, take a guided tour of the Palais des Nations, the European Headquarters of the UN, or admire the architecture of the Vieille-Villa. The St Pierre Cathedral has 157 steps leading up to the top of its tower. Many contemporary art museums are situated in the Quartier des Bains, and, dotted across the city, are four world-exclusive museums: the Red Cross and Red Crescent, Le Musee International de la Reforme, the Patek Philippe Museum, and the Bodmer Foundation Library and Museum.
