Geneva in Switzerland is, without a doubt, a sophisticated cosmopolitan city that’s wonderfully surrounded by a stunning lake. Not only that, but it’s speckled with Alpine peaks and hilly terrains — in short, it’s a true beauty! So while you’re on your Swiss vacation and are looking for a hotel that will help accentuate the city’s whole atmosphere and scene, N’vY Manotel Hotel [website] is one of the best accommodation choices that you can make.
I would know because I had the chance to stay here, and it was a staycation that I absolutely enjoyed and that I will forever remember!
About N’vY Manotel Hotel
Prime Location. Smacked in the center of Geneva, N’vY Manotel Hotel is located in a small side street that’s away from the bustle of it all — but, it is a stone’s throw away from Lake Geneva. Plus, there is a nearby tram line that easily gives you access to all of the city’s main highlights. In fact, you can go crazy in accessing whatever tram or bus line there is in the city because the hotel will be giving you a Geneva Travel Pass which will allow you to get FREE public transport use all throughout the duration of your stay!
Stylish Lux. As a part of the Manotel Hotel Group [website], you’ll be offered a unique atmosphere that embodies utter comfort, creativity, and style. After all, right from the moment that you step into N’vY Manotel Hotel, you’ll be greeted by its rich colorful urban decor. A lot of artsy or boutique hotels such as this would often have that snobbish or stuffy aura about it, but be assured that such does NOT apply to N’vY — everything here has a sense of vibe that is relaxed and warm, much like how you would feel when you’re at the comfort of your home!
With over 153 rooms, each of them have their own categorized hip and modern style as well as their own views, may that be of the Lake Geneva or of the mountains.
What did I especially love about their rooms? Well, I loved not only the trendy design but also its incorporation of modern technology, its glass-walled showers (to easily have a view of the TV for those baths where I need some entertainment), and its unique lighting ambiance.
The rooms are namely…
- Suite – SoChic
About 57 sqm: Located on the 8th floor, it is a room with parquet flooring that has a separate lounge, a kitchenette, and a terrace that will give you a 180° view over the lake. The bathroom has all the things that you’ll need and it especially has a balneotherapy bathtub!
- Junior Suite – Shelter
You can get a junior suite with or without a kitchenette, but much like the SoChic suite, it has the same balneotherapy baths and furnished terrace (some rooms have a view of the lake).
Consists of a master bedroom that connects to 2 beds, ideal for (what else but) a family. It will be the perfect stay, for sure!
- Executive – Hipster
Some of these rooms have a view of the lake, which would be perfect since each of the bathrooms has an open view of the outside.
- Superior – Nomad
With its uniquely quoted headboards, this room has the same designer furniture and trendy decor, an Italian-style shower, a 46-inch TV, and a Nespresso coffee machine.
- Standard – Boho
It might be the most basic room, but it does not skimp on displaying lush interiors, that’s for sure! Enjoy your time in this room which has its chaise lounge and a kitchenette (optional).
NOTE: All rooms have FREE WiFi, a lighting ambiance that applies chromotherapy, tea + Nespresso coffee-making facilities, minibar, LED HD TV, sound bar, multimedia plug, Bluethooth safe, dressing table with hairdryer and magnifying mirror, air-conditioning, and more!
Trilby Restaurant. A stylish dining area that serves gourmet dishes for your every whim. A must-try? One of the best beef plates ever: Simmental, a Kobe-style Wagyu, or Black Angus. You’ll find that their steaks will win your praises!
Breakfast Area. Most hotels seemingly pay little to no regard to providing a complex array of breakfast choices — but NOT at N’vY Manotel Hotel because you’re sure to be rewarded with a wide selection of pastries, cereals, gluten-free products, homemade cake, flapjacks, pancakes, fresh and dried fruit, fruit juice, yogurt, a selection of cheeses and cold meats!
N’vY Bar. For that much needed break, lounge at the hotels prized bar and let their mixologist whip up some drinks to meet your fancy. When the night creeps in further, their in-house DJ will help put you in the mood even further.
