Hotel Geneve Hotel Review: Constructed at the close of the nineteenth-century, this pretty pink palace drips with the romantic atmosphere of turn-of-the-century Mexico. Retaining much of the building's original character, the lobby of the Geneve is elegant, with a number of small shops, marble floors, and a classic, dark wood reception desk. In the adjoining library, a stained glass ceiling and spectacular brass chandelier are offset by dark walls and framed oil paintings. Rooms were recently updated, though they are still appointed with carved wood furniture and heavy carpets, giving the place a nice, old-fashioned style. At the same time, modern conveniences like wireless Internet and air conditioning make for a comfortable stay. Standard guest rooms are sufficiently spacious, cozy, clean, and charming, as are the larger junior suites, which can accommodate more guests. Street-side rooms at the Geneve are likely to be noisy during the weekends, as partygoers flock to the neighborhood's numerous nightclubs. If you don't feel like braving the hustle and bustle of the Zona Rosa, the hotel houses a charming little bar and several picturesque restaurants. Toward the back of the lobby, you can have a coffee or a meal at the very pretty Sanborns, Mexico City's ubiquitous cafe. Hotel service is friendly, though more limited than what you will find at a higher-end establishments around the city.
