Hotel Lido is a very basic hotel with an excellent location. Close to the railway station, shopping street and restaurants. Rooms are small and simply furnished. In my single room there was a spacy, clean bathroom. I stayed at fifth floor, where it was quite quiet. I can imagine that street noise can be heard in lower floors, if room... More

This is the worst bed I have slept in probably in my life. The mattress was soft, sinking and you could feel all the springs. This is disrespectful to customers. The shower was too small. The location is great, next to the train station and close to the lake but I do not recommend anyone to stay there until the... More

Handy location 3 or 4 mins walk from Geneva train station (NB trains and busses from airport are free if you take ticket from machine in baggage claim area – just press the button). Friendly and helpful welcome at hotel reception. Was given a public transport ticket by the hotel – free and valid 24 hours or for the duration... More

The place is definitely no frills...one outlet in the entire room, one towel in the bathroom, one hard backed chair, and a luggage rack. Hallway lights don't go on right away, so you're left standing in the dark which is unnerving for a woman. There is a lift, but the airport shuttle mentioned on Orbitz and Hotels.com is actually a...

We stayed here for 2 nights in Feb 15 and we booked it a few days prior to arrival. It is a centrally based hotel literally 1 minute from Geneva rail station and only 3-4 minutes walk to the waterfront of Lake Geneva. The room is basic but very clean. A simple shower room was part of our room. No... More

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
