Geneva, the second largest city in Switzerland, is certainly a place with international clout. It’s the home of the headquarters of the International Red Cross and the United Nations. Geneva is also known for the Motor Show - one of the largest auto shows in the world - and CERN. And then you've probably heard about their particle accelerator. Experience the international character of the modern city or tap into the past and stroll the Vieille Ville (aka. the Old City).
The northern part of Geneva includes Pâquis, a lively area brimming with exotic restaurants, lively bars and trendy nightclubs. This area really kicks off in the evening and is perfect for those looking for a night on the town. The area is also home to the central Geneva-Cornavin Station, which sites behind the diplomatic quarter. One of the top hotspots there is the Place des Nations where you’ll find the 'Broken Chair', a work of art in honour of the victims of landmines and cluster bombs.
Rive Droite has about 45 properties ranging from two to five star hotels. Much of the accommodation at the more luxury end offer gyms, buffet breakfasts and 24-hour room service, spas with indoor pools and pool bars: perfect for those looking for a posh getaway with a partner or a business trip.
Why not stay in the atmospheric neighbourhood Plainpalais or the quiet neighbourhood of Eaux-Vives. In Eaux-Vives you’ll find La Grange with its huge rose garden of 12,000m2. Or you could always go for a hotel near Geneva's Cointrin Airport and the adjoining convention centre, PalExpo.
