Visiting CERN and Geneva, staying at business hotels
I go to a lot of meetings at CERN, where scientists from all over the world do research at the Large Hadron Collider. The last conference lasted several days and was held at the Geneva Convention Centre, so I had an opportunity to explore one of the most cosmopolitan cities in Europe, famous for being the home to major international organizations, committees and councils as well as wide variety of Geneva hotels to accommodate their participants.
Geneva is a rather expensive city in everything from accommodation to dining options and shopping, but the expenses are worth everything, because of the high standards and excellent quality of living. I'd like to mention that in the city there are dozens of Geneva business hotels, which are mostly centrally located to get to any part of the city, its financial institutions, shopping malls, galleries, boutiques and restaurants easily. There are many choices for hotels, listed below:
Bristol is a four-star hotel, situated right in the center of Geneva, in close proximity to the old town, the famous water fountain and other attractions the city can offer. There are 100 guest rooms available at the hotel, all elegantly designed and equipped with the latest amenities, including Internet access, telephone, TV, tea/coffee maker to provide a tranquil stay. The hotel's restaurant, having a national award, will surprise its visitors with culinary delights and local specialties, created by a talented chef. A free continental breakfast is served here every morning or can be delivered to the room. A spacious meeting room with all needed media equipment is at your total disposal. Pure relaxation is guaranteed if you decide to come along to the on-site spa center, sauna or Jacuzzi.
Beau Rivage Geneva dates back to 1865 and is a family-owned hotel situated on the lake front, facing the Jet d'Eau Fountain of Geneva, only a stone's throw away from the Old Town, elegant stores and business quarters. Its design features authentic and refined period decor, and the rooms are nicely decorated and provide everything required to rest and work. Le Chat Botte restaurant serves contemporary French cuisine under the guidance of Dominique Gauthier (nominated Switzerland Chef of the year 2009), while Bar Atrium offers lights meals, English afternoon tea and beverages in a relaxed setting. A continental breakfast is served each morning and is included with a booking. The hotel has specially equipped business center with natural daylight, complimentary high speed Wi-Fi Internet access throughout the hotel, state of the art communication technology and other equipment for the successful business meeting. Hotel guests have complimentary access to the new fitness club with the latest gym equipment, indoor swimming pool and spa center.
Hotel Les Nations must be one of the best business hotels in Switzerland, set in the walking distance from major international organizations, like IOMT, UN headquarters, ITU, WTO, HRC, ICRC, WHO, ICC, UNESCO, UNICEF and so on. The hotel presents a charming luxury design that is highly appreciated be experienced travelers. The rooms are equipped with a mini-bar including a wide selection of snacks, light meals and many local and international drinks, Wi-Fi network system, telephone voice mail, international cable TV etc. A continental breakfast buffet is served on the first floor in a well-lit room, or you can order it in the apartments. The hotel's business center with fax and copy machine as well as meeting and office facilities will assist guests in arranging reunions, meetings or any other event. On the premises you will find free professionally equipped fitness rooms, two men's and women's saunas and indoor swimming pool, which are really enjoyable.
The trip, as well as your stay at the above-mentioned properties will exceeded your expectations, though other Geneva business hotels are also worth your consideration if you decide to come to this bustling city on vacations or business.
