Hello, We were there in September 14. Staff is very helpful. Rooms are good and very clean. Lady at reception is very helpful for guiding how to travel in Geneva. Free wi fi available and free transport pass available to guests. Good value for money. Very near to station. Only rooms on road side have noise of vehicles. Regards, V.V.JOGLEKAR

It's my 5th visit to Switzerland but first time when I slept in Geneva (usually I spent my nights on French side as its much cheaper). I decided to pick up Hotel Lido as its so close to Cornavin, just 5 minutes by foot. Hotel room was really cosy and big. Unusual for 2 stars hotels. Honestly I would give... More

This is a 2 star hotel. It is in an excellent location (<5 minutes walk from the train station). It is very clean. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The bed was comfortable. The internet was free. The room was small and the bathroom was small (but a power - shower). It is significantly cheaper than most other hotels... More

We spent one night at Hotel Lido. We booked this place because it seemed the only place with good reviews in central Geneva which didn't cost a bar of gold. When we got there, we saw it wasn't bad at all. The building is surely very old, and in need for some renovation. The furniture in the room is very... More

I stayed at this hotel for 1 night. It is a good hotel, located in the cuty center, near the lake and the train station. It is a relatively small hotel, but this gives it its charm. The price for the room was very reasonable, given that Geneva is an expensive city. I got value for money. The staff was... More

This hotel is a bit worn and is on a main street but is still very good. The price is reasonable in a very expensive city and it is within walking distance of both the railway station and lake Geneva. The room was ok as was the breakfast buffet. The service was very good with extremely helpful staff. I had... More

Within short walking distance of the main train station in Geneva, but might require a map, Hotel Lido isn't quite in the direction the tourists are heading. Our double room was spacious and had a fair amount of storage space. Internet available and local transit cards provided gratis for the duration of the stay. Much of Geneva's transit runs along...

Some report that noise from the main street stops them opening the window and, in the absence of air conditioning, makes the room stuffy. But for me no problem, since my room faced onto the back, with a quiet and pleasant outlook. Room location is therefore significant during the warmer months. Otherwise I agree with most others -- fine if... More

The hotel is very well located. Close to the train station, clean, and comfortable. Not luxury, but honest and satisfying. A day transport ticket is available to the guests, for free. The girl in the reception desk was very polite and nice.

Convenient to the Cornavin Transit station, this no frills property makes for a lean, albeit somewhat Spartan base while in Geneva. You may wish to spend more of your leisure time south of the river but the Lido provides an affordable way to spend a few evenings in an otherwise expensive city.
