This was my second time staying at the MO Geneve. I arrived early to check-in and was prepared to simply drop off my bags and return later, but was told my room would be ready in only a few minutes. I still needed to leave for my meeting so they kindly took my bags.

Upon my return later, the front desk staff escorted me to my room, where my bag was waiting for me. It was a lovely room on the river, with a small sofa and sitting area (I believe this is an upgraded room). The furnishings were all of the highest quality and the decor was more modern style. A spacious bath, the Atelier Cologne toiletires and both a stand-up shower and tub.

I learned that an Italian Opera company was in town that evening and inquired with the concierge. He said it was sold-out but would look into my options. He did locate a ticket for me but his suggestion was the price the reseler was asking was more than he felt it was worth. As I was not dead-set on attending it was good advice as the seat was not great yet the price was very high.

Breakfast was a beautiful buffet of fruits, cheeses, and hot and cold savory items. You also are able to order hot dishes from the menu. Delicious food. I remember their breakfast from my previous stay years earlier and its still fantastic!

One the second day, the staff remembered my name and greeted me with my preferred coffee. Its the little things that make a visit special.

I also dined at Rasoi restaurant but will review that separately (its great!).

I went for a run around the lake one morning. Upon return to the hotel, the doorman offered cool towels, chilled water and seems he also had sports drinks available.

Similarly, when I departed, when they returned my car which I had parked with them, there were chilled bottles of water, along with some small mint candies for my drive back to Zurich, Very thoughtful.

The MOBar is a very nice place for pre pr post-dinner drinks. Staff is again very attentive and helpful. When I inquired about buying some of the snacks they offer, the waiter checked and informed me where in town I could buy them. He said if there was any issue, they could sell me from the hotel but the size of the package would be quite large,

As I have said before, there are many nice properties but the staff and their training and attentiveness is what separates 4-star hotels from 5-star ones. Mandarin Oriental Geneve definitely meets the criteria of a leading 5-star property. I look forward to returning soon.

Renovation, Crying Baby
Reviewed 1 month ago

We booked two rooms for a 5days stay. We we traveling with a family so asked for connected room!
Check in was slow and lots of documents to sign at the front desk. We were carrying a baby and lots of items and it was crowded.

There was renovation at the hotel!
We were told during the booking or at check in.
We were staying on the third floor, We can hear the renovation right above us.
Baby was scared as the sound is really sharp.
We picked this hotel and paid a premium for a suite and a deluxe room. Didn’t expect this from mandarin oriental.

I’d upload the videos if I could. Picture don’t justify.

Omg. Mandarin Oriental.
