Our family-run 3-star hotel is located in the heart of the city on the right bank of Lake Geneva. Enjoy a prime location for visiting Geneva. Our hotel is close to the old town, the cathedral and the English garden with its flower clock and water jet. In summer, its close proximity to the lake is great for cooling off or enjoying the many events organised around its banks. A multitude of restaurants, cinemas and shows, such as the Grand Theatre or BFM are only a few minutes away and will provide ample entertainment for your evenings. For shopping, Hotel Excelsior is just a few hundred metres from the famous rue du Rhône and rue du Marché where you can enjoy the many boutiques and shopping centres, not to mention the Manor department store located just opposite our hotel. The nearby no. 5 bus stop, less than 20 metres from the Hotel Excelsior, will take you to the Convention and Conference Centre (CICG, Palexpo) as well as several international organisations in less than 15 minutes.

I stayed here for one night. The location of the hotel is nice, it is close to the bus station. If you are interested in shopping, Manor is just next to the hotel. The breakfast was nice, there were e.g. croissants, cereals and scrambled eggs...More

Rather old hotel with small rooms and bed. Although centrally located, the rooms are noisy and can even hear the neighbors speak. It could be an option for anyone on a budget who wants to operate in Geneva.

The location was fantastic, very central in Geneva. Staff were helpful and friendly. I felt that the hotel was not as modern as it appears on the website. It does have a nice feel to it but just doesn’t match and the room had that...More
