We went there with a voucher to eat meat, there were to options: ribs or steak. I asked for tab water and they brought me a bottle of sparkling water, so I asked again for tab water and they brought me a (very expensive) bottle of flat water. Then I asked for the ribs and my 3 friends asked for... More

Having to participate in a seminar at EBU headquarters I selected the most close by hotel within company budget (140 Euros) I applied as always for a twin room but landed in a very small 4 squared meter cupboard with only a single bed so not what I ordered. I had to pay 50 euros warranty for my key and... More

Our second visit to La Colombière's Restaurant (Grand-Saconnex, Geneva) confirmed our first clearly negative impression: while the pizzas are nothing special but don't leave much to be complained about, the service does. The service is neglected and unfriendly to an impressive extent. The junior waiters themselves are correct, but their boss (probably the owner), who also seats you ("welcomes" would... More

The room was booked for me by a company I was visiting. I would not have booked this myself. Do not recommend to others. Stay in the city center instead, better cheap hotels around the main train station. Strange way to greet guests. When I arrived, I had to look for someone to let me in to the reception. Found...

This is not a run-of-the-mill hotel - it is family-run and yes, the restaurant is the focal point and very good. The rooms are small and individual, and very clean - but I've stayed in hotels near Cornavin in the centre where the rooms were just as small and much less appealing. Once you get to know the staff and... More

Actually,1 / 5 points seem still to be too many points for this Hotel. We have stayed there for the set-up and the press days of the Geneva Motorshow in 2013 with our whole team. It was the worst hotel we have ever been so far. Basically the rooms were clean, BUT the size was ridiculous. Our COO received a... More

After reading the reviews on here, I was dreading my stay at La Colombière, but it wasn't as bad as many people said. For a start, it was spotlessly clean, both the room and (importantly) the bedding. My room was small and sparsely-furnished, with just a bed, a chair and a wardrobe with hanging space only. No desk, but I... More

I choose the hotel because it's not far from the airport and some international organizations, but I won't go there again. Seems my experience is very similar to some of the other recent reviews. The hotel is run as a "side business" to the restaurant. Don't try to check in after 7PM, because all staff is working in the restaurant... More

Wasted money. Horrible dirty. Just do not go there!!! Restaurant acceptable. The rooms are super small. No air conditioning. No door for the bathroom. No place to put clothes. No way to have a nice sleep. Old beds with dirty mattress. Tv did not work. Breakfast unacceptable. 150 euros per night... Unbelievable... Only advantage. The palaexpo is at 5 minutes... More

We had a booking confirmed by the hotel in October 2010. At check in the hotel charged our credit card and then informed us that they do not have rooms for us, but rebooked us into another hotel in Geneva. That hotel was absolutely not acceptable. (dirty, unfriendly). They also didnt trust La Colombiere with the booking and wanted to... More
