I found that Geneva was horribly expensive to stay at. I decided to stay at the Hostellerie de la Vendee based on it's price, it's reviews and it's star rating. I wasn't very thrilled with the Hotel, but given my options and their price I might choose it again. One night stay rolled in at $240 CAD for what amounted... More

I enjoy staying there because it is close to my company. Very friendly staff. Rooms quality differ, as some are renovated, others are not. Not recommended for longer stays, but good for short business stays.

Switzerland is expensive and this hotel was below the price you would normally pay, but I still expected better. Wi-fi was terrible the whole time, rooms were dingy and in need of improvement. Lift was so tiny we could barely fit in, and we had 2 suitcases. I still don't know how we managed. The only plus side of this... More

Hotels in Geneva are not that good from a price-quality perspective. If you can arrange for a rental car, you can find better deals at the French side of the border. This hotel is situated in a quiet corner of town, but can easily be reached by public transport (there is a tramway nearby). The stay in the hotel was... More

This is one of the worst hotel experiences I have ever had - the staff were unhelpful and rude, the décor was very outdated, the shower barely stayed on the wall and food was average at best. Given that most people are obviously out of town, they made little effort to help make the stay enjoyable - they were just... More

Small , old-ish rooms. Small shower. Clean. No restaurant (except Breakfast), but a few options within 3 min walking distance (PIzza, etc). Roughly 5 TV channels. Too expensive, though. Location OK (5-10 mins by tram to centre). Calm at night for sure.

overbooking. My room was in the seasonal staff area, underground, under a bus station, without phone, without hairdryer, very cold, dirty and... you need to pass in the pipes area, the wharehouse and some other hidden-undergrounded part of the hotel before to see the reception... and at the "small" price of 275 euro/night!!!! Others "normal" rooms are without the bathroom... More

This hotel is very uneven. I've stayed there a few times and usually something was more or less wrong: a tiny room (really, really tiny), dirty bathroom, poor room cleaning service, uncomfortable working desk and chair... There are rooms which are fine, but you never know which one you'll get. And even prices sometimes can be quite high, not justifying... More

This was my second stay at Hostellerie de la Vendee. Definitely not 4 star. The amenities were average. The room was very small and the bathroom was very small. It was difficult to get in and out of the shower because of the design of the bathroom. It's location was good for me since it was close to my office... More

I found this hotel through bookings.com after I tried several hotels in the city centre. The prices in Geneva are outrageous so I wanted to be creative. It was a gamble and I did not know what to expect. It was a nice surprise.Folks are friendly, relaxed and helpful. There is a large underground car park, a large terrace to... More
