We stay in this hotel quite regular and it has a great locations at the lake but also being super central for the city centre business district. The room are mainly small and simple but you can get upgraded from time to time. Stuff is very precessional and breakfast is great with a view right to the lake. It's regularly... More

Smart professional hotel. No complaints really, save for the noise from the construction work on the pavement just by the front entrance. Staff are friendly and very accommodating. (They even allowed me to borrow a charger for my phone which I had forgotten). The rooms are average size and the bathroom and towels very clean. The bed is comfortable and... More

I had been booked to stay at this hotel however with the dated red decor and quilts on beds instead of sheets, as well as old carpets, it wasn't for me. Buyer Beware - despite providing more than 24hrs notice of cancellation, this hotel charged me for 1 x night stay as the "cancellation fee" as they advised the cancellation... More

Location is extraordinary. But also service. I stayed for several days there. After returning home I found out that i left my favourite blouse at the hotel. The management was so nice and they returned the blouse at their cost to my home address. Thank you so much, Aurelie!!

We were amazed by this hotel. The rooms were spacious and very beautiful, the location was just amazing. The view from the room we had was breathtaking. Restaurants, shopping centres and of course the beautiful old town of Geneva are within walking distance. The staff was very friendly and helpful, gave us any information we needed, and also helped us... More

The location cannot be beat in central Geneva and the view of the lake is gorgeous. A couple of the hotel front desk staff happen to be the rudest we have ever encountered in this type of business. Unfortunately, their behavior put a real damper on our stay. I would also skip the breakfast buffet which is very expensive and... More

This is my second and most probably a very last stay in this hotel. Attracted by the price and location, I tried to manage my expectations but this time it was too much for me. I was pleased to get a large room on the 5th floor, but it appeared to be a very bad idea! There is no AC... More

It is right in front of Lake Geneva, walking distance to all your shopping and dining. Front desk staff are very accommodating, the wait staff at the restaurant, less so. Rooms are small but comfortable. Internet is free. There is no gym, so if that's a dealbreaker for you, don't stay here. There is of course, a huge lake just... More
