"A few things to iron out..."
I echo a super comment from another contributor regarding this hotel, in that it must have been good in the 1980's. One example - given a) the fact that we're in 2016 and b) the cost of the place, you'd think an ironing board would be available in the room, but no. "May I have an ironing board sent up please'" I enquired. "No" Came the response. "Is that No, you don't have one or No, I can't have one'" I asked. "No" came the response.... After some further haggling they reluctantly agreed to send one up "within the hour". It did come, when I was in the shower... I could go on but frankly if you can get into another place I'd say go for it.
"Great Hotel, Fantastic Geneva"
I stayed three nights at the Warwick and found it to be a really nice, quiet hotel in a great location, right across from the train station and Cornavin transit hub. With the free transit pass issued by the hotel, I was able to easily catch the tram to both CERN and the UN. The lake and the old town are both within easy walking distance. I had a small, single room on the 6th floor with large windows looking across the city, over the Jet d'Eau and towards the surrounding mountains, with glimpses of the Alps. The room was cozy and comfortable, with a great bed and nice bathroom. The included breakfast buffet was comprehensive and the wifi worked well. The hotel staff were all very friendly and spoke English when they realised I didn't speak much French. I really loved Geneva, and can recommend staying at the Warwick when you visit.
"Must have been great in 1980"
Arrived by train and walked barely 200 metres to the hotel. Hotel building looks like some socialist palace of the 1980s. Paid a massive CHF 260 approx for the night. The interior is more up-to-date yet could do with some touches relevant to 2016. Room was okay, so was the bath, did not eat there, but hey I paid CHF 20 for a $ 4-burger + fries close to the railway station in some 'grup-joint'. The hotel is part of the 'fore-court' to the railway station The whole forecourt is second world with plenty of kebab joints, arab restaurants and shady characters hanging around selling 'stuff'. And we are talking 'Geneva', one of the most expensive places on this planet. Even there 'gravity takes hold' and even Geneva is going 'pear-shaped', perhaps not where the powerful have their haunts and tax-payer-funded work places, but certainly around the hotel .. which is not the hotel's fault, by the way.
"Lovely hotel but beware of the deposit on checking in"
I booked this break to Geneva for me and my husband wedding anniversary on the 7th October I book it through aroma.com and paid for the room in full for the 2 nights breakfast included when we arrived at the airport we got our free public transport ticket and got on the train into Geneva our hotel is right across the road from the train station. So we did not get lost on checking in they ask for my debit card I said I have paid for the room in full and he said it was a deposit and I would get it back on checking out he took 100chf of me we did not have anything from the minibar or order room service so we you would think that you would get the deposit back on checking out or a few days later but no I am still waiting so beware of the deposit I only took a debit card for emergencies because I had cash on me we had room 220 which is opposite train station so it was a bit noisy but we did not mind because I had a lovely view breakfast was ok lots of choice room was lovely with English tv channels a minibar bathrobe and slippers toiletries tea and coffee making facilities bed was comfortable hotel was clean and staff was very friendly told us what bus and tram to catch for sightseeing hotel is not for from the lake just a 10 min walk and lots of shops around the hotel overall the hotel was nice and I would stop at a Warwick hotel again
The best thing about this hotel is that it's in a good area, especially if you're arriving or departing by train. It's literally across the street from the hotel, a six minute walk from train to reception. (Yet it's quiet. I never heard any sounds from the trains.) I had a penthouse room (don't know if I paid for that or if they upgraded me), but I'm grateful. The bed was comfortable, there's a tub (but you have to be ridiculously thin to take a bath!). There's a lovely patio overlooking the city, complimentary water and nice bathroom amenities. The room was very quiet, great TV selections in a variety of languages. My only issue is that the shower pressure is very light.
