My office booked this hotel for me. It's not huge, has an interesting display in reception and also friendly multi-lingual staff. However if you go here avoid rooms on the road-facing side of the hotel. I had two dreadful nights of sleep. A 2am thumping car stereo for 15 minutes, numerous scooters throughout the night. Breakfast is fine, wifi fast... More

Aside from the elegant décor and friendly receptionists this hotel, it should be avoided. Situated in Plan les Oates (Geneva's business district), it is 'somewhat' useful for a business trip; if getting the office on foot is the single, and top priority. The only thing that could deter your attention from the noise and luminosity of the street (something that... More

We decided to stay at Des Horlogers after looking at other Central Geneva hotels and noticing how expensive they were. Although this is a way out, there is a bus stop next door and it is a 10-15 minute bus ride directly into the centre, even better, the hotel gives you free public transport vouchers. I think you'll be pleased... More

This quaint hotel in Geneva has great staff, is located just out of town and has great access to ever so famous Swiss transport system. I truly enjoyed my stay here. Wifi in all the rooms and its fast all day round.

Despite being well out the centre of Geneva there was no problem with public transport to and from, the room was comfortable and well equipped. The Breakfast Buffet was well stocked although a tad expensive for my liking.

Nice hotel, reasonable price, decent breakfast, good service BUT the rooms on the top floor have recessed ceilings (I had a corner room) and are TOO HOT in the night when it was 22C during the day. You can open the window, but then you get all the street noise. One particular positive for me is that although there was... More

This is a charming little hotel, the decor is older but is.....extremely clean and quiet !!! We loved it ! There are restaurants near by, so it is very practical. It is perfect for a short stay on a tour of europe.
