We booked this hotel as it was the cheapest with a central location. It is quite old but clean. It was very warm but it was too noisy outside to sleep with the window open. There was a fan in the room but this want enough. Discounted car park at train station nearby.

We just needed one night and this was a good value and a convenient location. Parking is at the train station. Room was adequate size for us. We have never stayed in Geneva before so not much to compare it to.

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
