Re: Stay in Geneva

We went to Geneva a few weeks ago for the first time,


We found an excellent website which tailors a package suitable for how long you are going for.


There are different things you can do but you can find that all on the website and accommodate what you actually want to do.


We got a cheap hotel which also provided us free travel passes for our duration of stay.


The website is:

All the best!

The Four Seasons is quite nice.

The Loft Suite has seperate bedroom and living room, so you can enjoy your evenings without disturbing the kids. A travel pass and a full day children's program are included.

Quite nice??? That's one of the most expensive hotels in Geneva!! Better check with visitor if he is earning enough to afford "quite nice hotels" such as this one!


If you are on a more realistic budget, try these b&Bs:
http://www.relaisdelabaronne.com/ about a 20 minute- ride by bus from the town centre but you are right by the lake and the beautiful, clean and safe beach of Hermance (nice weather might return by then)
http://mybestnight.com/index.php/fr/...du-creve-coeur This one is more inland, still 5 minutes car drive from the lake, 15 from the town centre and in the middle of beautiful vineyards.

He asked for the best place to stay. Maybe if he'd mentioned a budget and been a bit less vague, we could give a more targeted answer.

Re: Stay in Geneva

Don't forget to get the hotel to give you the free public travel passes, which you can even use to take the yellow ferry boats across the lake.

Then when you are bored of the Jet D'eau you can go to the baby beach with tyre park.

Jardin Botanique is nearby with birds and animal enclosures and is just a nice place to chill out.
