This hotel really does not have it anymore. It is totally run down with 1960's bathrooms that really need more than just a bit of refreshing. Dirty joints in the shower and carpet in the room that you don't want to touch with your bare feet. The reception area, elevator, etc. are all depressing and not just old, but in... More

A warm welcomed us on our arrival, nothing special just business as normal nothing else even though there were 9 of us there to celebrate a 50th birthday. That kind of set the tone of our 4 day stay at the hotel, all the staff were nice, friendly but business like. The bedroom was tired, yes it had a TV... More

The rooms are average, but they have everything you need and they are confortable. Very convenient location, next to the gare Cornavin (15 min from the airport), and 5 min walk from the lake. I was given a free pass for buses in Geneva (ticket costs 3,5 CHF/ 1 hour).

The location makes this hotel an excellent choice for business but unfortunately the hotel has seen better days it seems. The rooms are tiny with no frills and breakfast is served in a pub downstairs. Not a very charming place, especially for the price.

Nothing spectacular about it. It was clean but our room was small. Taking a shower was like having to climb Mt. Everest. Very high side. Hotel location was good in that it was close to the train station and trams to get us to where we wanted to go.

The Astoria Hotel is located right next to the Geneva Train station so coming in from the airport to the station would mean you have a 2mins walk to your hotel. The hotel itself is nice and clean, with pretty decent sized rooms albeit the rooms are not completely modern in their look and feel. Don't let that put you... More

The Astoria is good if you are traveling on business. The location is convenient and it provides most of the services you need when traveling on business. The wireless Internet in particular worked very well, something very important to me. Breakfast was nice and consider the rate I paid I think it offered good values !

These are the 3 main aspects I look for in hotel. The Astoria delivered on all 3. I stayed here for 3 weeks whilst on a business trip. This is bang opposite the Geneva train station and a major hub for buses and trams. A 5 minute walk to the lake front and down town. The WiFi was reliable and... More

This is advertised as a three star hotel, which is exactly what it is. Located opposite the main train station in Geneva, it's location is excellent and my request for a room at the back ensured a quiet night's sleep. The staff are very helpful with one receptionist loaning me his own travel adapter The rooms, while small are adequate... More
