Geneva hotels bounce back after covid


The hotel sector in Geneva is bouncing back after covid. Figures from the Cantonal Statistics Office shows the number of overnight stays is now close to pre-pandemic levels.

Hotels logged almost 900,000 stays between July and September this year – a rise of 60% on the same period last year and only 3% lower than 2019. 

Geneva is doing well compared to the rest of the country. Stays are almost 4 times more than the national average.
