Crowne Plaza Hotel, room 693, Geneva, Switzerland

The Crowne Plaza Hotel Geneva is situated close to the Geneva International Airport. It’s a shiny, modern, Scandinavian design hotel, with everything you need. The hotel’s free shuttle bus is parked 2 meters from the exit door on the airport, and this is where the Lufthansa crews sleep.

Room 693 is in the new wing, overlooking the nearby fields and with a lift straight down to the amazing bar at the ground level. How about those lamps!!

It’s a big, nice room with two big beds, a desk, tv, lots of closet space and a safe. A word about hotel safes: They are too small! Lots of people have 17″ laptops now, and they don’t fit in there. Even 15″ laptops are hard to stuff inside most hotel safes. What’s the point with a safe if you can’t store your most valuable item in there when you’re leaving the room? The minibar is one of those very annoying wholly automated things. So if you have your own food or beverages you want to store cold, and take out bottles from the minibar, they are immidiately added to your bill, even if you put them back in. Lame system.

The bathroom is huge, white and shiny clean. Very nice. Lots of hot water, and both a shower and a big bath tub. And a nice selection of shampoo, body wash, lotion, soap etc. on the desk.

I liked the detail with the window, where you can sit and watch the rain falling on the nearby fields, eating swiss chocolate…

The verdict on the hotel: Very nice and modern, only some minutes from the airport but still very quiet. It’s near the UN and EBU (walking distance), but expensive. Expect to pay CHF 200 and up.

One bad thing should be noted: Some of the staff were very rude. One waitor in the restaurant yelled at guests, and behaved – well, like an idiot.

But I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it if you can afford the high price.
