I noticed that someone changed this to an un-recommendation. Actually I've had a bad experience there recently, and since I wrote the original review (I think, or was it MAJ?) I'm going to go ahead an strike the recommendation for this place -- Mark 13:40, 18 Apr 2004 (EDT)
Can you re-take the "intro" picture? It's a good angle, but unfortunately low quality with odd contrast/shadows/whateveryoucallit. -- Nils 03:26, 15 Jul 2004 (EDT)
I removed this listing since I thought it was an external guide, thus not appropriate for our external links:

I think the following could be mined for information, but needs to be rewritten to better match our Wikitravel:Manual of style, specificly avoiding the first person and negative reviews. Maj 22:30, 13 August 2006 (EDT)
If you are looking for a hotel at the lake, you should consider if you would like a room with view on the lake (vue lac) or city (vue cite) and if you want it the north side of the lake (vue lac would mean having sun all the day on your balcony) or on the south side (usually cheaper, but vue lac would be without sun, but who stays the whole day in the hotel anyway). For the southern border the Hotel Metropole is a good choice, for the northern border the Beau Rivage. Be aware that you may get a room in those hotels for already below 500Chf, but if you want vue lac, it's basically reserved for the better rooms from 800Chf on.
Needs an overhaul...
..and I keep meaning to do it.
I do think that the article deserves its 'Usable', butr really it needs to be split into two articles, one for Geneva city and one for Geneva canton, they aren't exaclty co-terminous. The main reason for my wanting to do this is that we don't really have room in the article as it exists now for coverage of Carouge, which should be extensive. We should probably also provide some coverage of a couple of other villages like Petit and Grand Saconnex and Petit and Grand Lancy, as well as Chêne Bourg, and of course the outlying vineyards.
I'd like to do this work, but I can never seem to find time. -- Mark 09:57, 4 February 2007 (EST)
Universite de Geneve
Shouldn't there be anything about the Universite de Geneve and HEI in the education section? After all, they are both very renowned (according to Newsweek the best university in the continent), especially compared to those joke english-language universities in the canton...
Languages - Swiss?
I noticed that under the list of languages you can hear in Geneva is "you will also occasionally hear Swiss, German, and Italian." and as far as I know, there is no formal Language called "Swiss" (Unless the editor meant Rumantsch) so either I'm mistaken and there is a swiss language (fully possible) or it is a typo meant to say "Swiss German" or should be removed. Any input? 220.127.116.11 11:03, 17 July 2008 (EDT) Dane Meister
"Eat" section - Regional specialties?
Are there any regional specialties in geneva? Seems like most other swiss cities offer some kind of recommendation. For example "The quintessential Zürich dish is Zürigschnätzlets, veal in a cream and wine sauce. Various kinds of grilled Wurst (sausages) are also popular. These are most often accompanied by boiled potatoes, Rösti, a Swiss potato pancake (grated potato, formed into a pancake then pan fried until crisp in butter or oil) or Chnöpfli, in German sometimes called Spätzle, (small noodle dumplings)." from the Zurich page. —The preceding comment was added by 18.104.22.168 (talk • contribs)
