The hotel is located so strategically....literally 2minutes walk to transport to airport, located less than 5 minutes walk to Gare the train station. It's at the heart of Geneva. It's between so many eating joints and main shopping mall the Manor. The room is a bit squeezed but very clean and for business trip I would say is sufficient. No... More

The whole environment is a bit glum, but it's clean and the people are nice enough. I had a room on the main road side and, as others have remarked, it would have been noisy with the windows open. The beds looked old, but they were comfortable. Very fair for the price.

Why we choose this hotel were simply cause the location is quite near to the train station and not too far from airport. Elevator amazingly small, the room is quite big but not really clean. Still doable if you need a place to rest after interstate travel and need to get around quickly

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
