Geographically, the location is great, and the fact that the Novotel is a part of the Accor group is also wonderful. Family friendly? Yes, as children under 16 can stay there free. Pet friendly? Yes, but there is a $32 fee.
Something was happening in Geneva when I visited, so all of the downtown hotels were full and I had to spend one night at the Novotel. The room looked freshly refurbished with sparkling white sheets and coverlet on a very comfortable queen size bed, and the bathroom was stocked with all of the necessary amenities.
Stepping outside the hotel, however, was not a pleasant experience. The area is not pedestrian friendly and you encounter drunks, dangerous looking bands of third world immigrants, ladies of the night, and a large number of ethnic fast food restaurants. If you don't mind the negative surroundings, you will have a nice stay at this Hotel with a fair price that is less than half the luxury hotels in Geneva that are only a few blocks away.More
