Get to know Claire

Home to more global organisations than you can shake a tiny novelty flag at, cultures meet, mingle and merge in laidback Geneva.


Perched just a stone’s throw from the tranquil shores of Lac Léman, Ruby Claire draws inspiration from the city’s long-standing role as a global centre of peace and cooperation.


That’s why, when it comes to design, we’ve taken design notes from across the world. In the bar, neutral tones offset colourful nods to far-flung lands. Cool marble and polished glass rub shoulders with woven textures and vintage furniture, all lit by an eclectic collection of traditional lamps and lanterns.


The bar menu’s similarly diverse, with its tantalising mix of classic cocktails and signature originals, local tipples and tasty snacks. 

Come morning, the healthy breakfast and barista coffee will set you up for a day of diplomacy (or lakeside daydreaming).


To get a breath of fresh Swiss air, head to one of the two terraces, coffee or cocktail in hand.


In your room, you’ll experience our unique Lean Luxury style, with a big, comfy bed, a rainfall shower and soft, fluffy towels.


Woven motifs in the wood panelling and macramé artwork above the bed speak to the city’s intertwining cultures and styles. And a Marshall amp’s on hand to give your globe-trotting playlist a boost.


Geneva’s main station is a 12-minute stroll away, from where the airport’s seven minutes by train.

24-Hour Bar

With the world as our muse, the 24-hour bar blends design from every continent.

From subtle nods to weaving and textiles to bright colours and bold patterns, we’ve created our own cosy corner in the world’s meeting point. A sprinkling of international trinkets and vintage globes completes the scene.

It’s an inspiring space where people come together to share tall tales and grand plans, catch an up-and-coming band or just unwind with a skilfully shaken cocktail.

Find an armchair in a cosy nook, grab a table or perch at the bar – our designers have made sure there’s a comfy spot for everyone.

After a long day exploring the city, grab a cocktail and make tracks to one of our two pretty roof terraces.

Grab a spot at a table or relax on a recliner and work on your international relations, with old friends or new.

Since the start, we’ve taken lots of steps to be sustainable. From choosing renewable energy to streamlining systems to reduce paper use, some of it’s behind the scenes.

In your room though, you’ll notice smart lighting and refillable Ruby Care amenity bottles, along with renewable natural materials like wood panelling and flooring. Where possible, we also rescue and restore second-hand furniture to add character and cut our carbon footprint.

We’re lucky enough to have some brilliant local suppliers in our home cities. That means we can keep our food and drink miles down on everything from breakfast treats to beer and wine.

Safe, Sound & Sparkling

Our Ruby hotels are open and ready to welcome you on your next city trip. Guests and locals are free to have drinks and snacks on our rooftops, outdoor areas and in our 24/7 bars. We’ve also made a few changes, to help keep everyone healthy and happy:

  • Spotless bedrooms – every room is deep cleaned and disinfected between guests.
  • Squeaky clean shared spaces  we regularly clean and disinfect public areas throughout the day.
  • Spotlight on surfaces – all touchscreens, handles and buttons are cleaned at least once an hour.
  • Covid tests for all of our teams – our hotel hosts and teams behind the scenes are all offered twice-weekly Covid testing.
  • Hand sanitiser on tap – you’ll find touch-free dispensers at the bar, at check-in and in the WCs.
  • Face masks and screens – for extra peace of mind, we’ve put up screens and are wearing face masks.
  • Bars and terraces with enough space – for more distance.
  • QR Code scanning - easy and traceable.
  • Cashless and quick – we can only accept card and contactless payments at the bar.

Rue du Rhône 40
1204 Geneva


A stone’s throw from Geneva’s boutiques and the shores of Lac Léman, Ruby Claire is as well-placed for shopping as for waterfront strolling.


A short walk inland meanwhile will take you to the city’s historic heart, where pretty brasseries and buzzing bars encircle the ancient Bourg-de-Four.


For more adventurous souls, the Alps and the Jura are on hand for day hikes with gorgeous views. And when you’re ready for a breather and a sundowner, where better than the historic Bains des Pâquis – beach by summer, sauna by winter?


Geneva’s main station is a 12-minute walk from the hotel, from where the airport’s a seven-minute hop by train.

Lean Luxury

Like you, we travel a lot. And wherever we go, we expect three things: a great night’s sleep, a powerful shower and top-notch connections – both to the city and the WiFi.

What we’re less keen on is paying for extras we never use. In dynamic cities bursting with Michelin stars and foodie pop-ups, room service sandwiches just don’t cut the mustard.

So we set out to create the best of both worlds – hotels with style and substance, but none of those expensive extras.

It’s what we call Lean Luxury.

To us, luxury means laid-back comfort in characterful surroundings, right in the heart of the city.

The lean part is all about being smart with space, streamlining things behind the scenes and doing away with the things you don’t need.

This innovative approach saves us and you money, without compromising on comfort.
