In Geneva you walk, so access to transportation is a must. The left bank is quieter, near the old town and in my opinion the better side of Lake Geneva. (Flower clock and English Garden) This hotel is 5 - 7 minutes from the lake and 2 tram stops to the foot of the old town and main shopping venue.... More

Geneva is an overpriced city, but usually you get what you pay for. Not so with this hotel. It is not very clean. Bed was 30 cm too short. Water in shower goes from freezing to scalding in seconds. Please take that filthy aquarium out of the lobby.

The worse Best Western so far. Expensive and Not clean. The rooms are smaller than coffins and smell the same... not to mention the beds (I am 1.85 m long and i slept in a bed with my feet protruding from it). Outside the entrance there is a carpet of cigarette butts. Breakfast is miserable and cheap ... Never, never... More

I really don't understand how some hotels like this can claim 4-stars. The rooms are just dull. Standard beds, old bedding, the TV was a very small old-style box (non-flatscreen). The shower was old and cheap. Long wait-times at check-in and check-out. Very slow WiFi. It has the feel of guest room at some 1970s house that used to be... More

This hotel is very conveniently located. My brother and I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights in April. At the baggage claim area in the airport, we got free bus tickets available within 80 minutes, and took Bus #10 from the airport until the last stop (about 35 minutes), and then walked to the hotel (a few minutes). This... More

This used to be a hotel with a bizarre sense in décor. It still is. What used to be a reception area that would not have been out of place in an 18th century French boudoir has now become a white leather seated airline lounge. The bedrooms have kept their charming 1970s style psychedelic bathroom tiling, but have had the... More

Very friendly hotel staff in a well centrally located hotel. Shower fantastic and beds are comfortable. A little noise from road outside, but nothing to detract from a good nights sleep. The hotel is within walking distance of most sights including the jet d'eau as well as the local shopping area and there are an abundance of restaurants, bars and... More

I have been only one night in this hotel. The room was clean and with good furniture. A little bit small, but still comfortable. I didn't have problem with noise during the night. The staff was not very friendly, too much time to check in. I liked the location, you can visite many touristic places by foot from the hotel.... More

The price was very good .. but the service was very very poor. We wait 30 minutes for the checkin .. two hours for the crib (the crib was already booked) .. No drink water in the room .. no shampoo for the shower.. .

Last avalaible low cost hotel (I mean low cost for Geneva!) Everything good except the noise early in the morning, outside on the main road in front of this hotel; you cannot imagine. The service is ok but do not expect them to say hello to you before you do.
