A city break beside the lake
Review of Lausanne (Switzerland) by Silverback

Advantages: Lots to see and do, location, transport
Disadvantages: Prices, ugly modern buildings, mosquitos by the lake

As the world's least intrepid, non-flying traveller I was predictably daunted by the prospect of a three-train journey to Switzerland including a crossing of Paris, even if it was to reach a comfortingly safe destination. In the event, my week-long stay i ... Read review

The worst staff of any hotel I've ever stayed in
Review of Cristal Hotel, Geneva by jipp05

Advantages: Good location, reasonable
Disadvantages: The staff, lack of facilities

The worst staff of any hotel I've ever stayed in I had nothing to do with booking the hotel during my pre-Christmas break to Geneva as I left this to my friends to organise so I was looking forward to seeing what they had booked. As they had a set ... Read review

A Geneva institution
Review of Cafe de Paris, Geneva by jipp05

Advantages: Delicious food, quick service, atmosphere

A Geneva Institution Before visiting Geneva I did some research on places to visit, restaurants, bars etc. and one place that kept popping up on recommended places to eat was the Café de Paris. The more I read about the restaurant the more curiou ... Read review

Excellent! by CelticSoulSister
How typically Swiss! Never mind, even at that price (by Swiss standards not outragious) worth it for the experience - and a good steak of course. Superb review. R. by RICHADA

A Reminder of Our Global Responsibilities
Review of International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum, Geneva by fizzytom

Advantages: A thought-provoking experience; well curated exhibition
Disadvantages: Some may find it too uncomfortable and challenging

When I was a child I would accompany my mother when she did her annual bit for the Red Cross, knocking on doors in our village and giving a tiny paper flag and a pin in return for a cash donation. I have no idea how my mother came to volunteer for the Red ... Read review

A Lebanese Lunch
Review of Al Amir Lebanese Restaurant, Geneva by fizzytom

Advantages: Delicious food and good value for Geneva; helpful staff
Disadvantages: None I can think of

Prices in Geneva are quite frighteningly high and though I was prepared for this, it didn't stop me from feeling a bit shaky when I handed over the equivalent of a tenner for two pints. One of the things we have learned on our travels is that 'ethnic' res ... Read review

I've had Cypriot and Turkish meze but I've never tried a Lebanese version. It sounds delicious and all the better for not serving it with chips as they often try to do in Cyprus! by Bollinger28

Magic place.
Review of McGuinness's Irish Pub, Basel by shakewood11

You haven't really said very much at all about the place. Does it serve food? Whereabouts is it? Is it family friendly? Good access for disabled people? Drinks available? Opening hours? by cha97michelle

St Moritz- Winter Monaco
Review of St Moritz (Switzerland) by jurcc

Advantages: interesting to see
Disadvantages: expensive

I went to St. Moritz just for seightseeing not for skiing, so I will describe what you can see there. It's a lovely town next to a lake which is used in winter (when it's frozen) as cricket, polo and horse racing track. This races are called White Turf a ... Read review

I've been there just for one day, so I don't know everything. There are also good restaurants, but as everything, for rich people. Maybe you could go hill climbing or to casino, spa.. But like I said I was there just for a day and I am writing what I saw and do. Another thing from St.Moritz trainstation, you can take a two and a half hour ride to Tirano in Italy with panoramic Bernina Express train, which will take you to 2500m high through Alps, 196 bridges and 55 tunnels with amazing sightseeing. by jurcc

Lighten Your Wallet at the Lord Nelson, Geneva
Review of Lord Nelson, Geneva by fizzytom

Advantages: Decent microbrewed beers, easy to get to
Disadvantages: Expensive (but Geneva is); not very special without the beers

Beer is not a drink I especially associate with Switzerland, but then Geneva, which is the last place I visited in Switzerland, is not a particularly Swiss city. Doing a little research before we went, we found three microbreweries in the centre (well two ... Read review
