We stayed here for a night as we got into Geneva late and needed somewhere cheap and convenient to stay. The reception staff etc were all very helpful and the location is perfect - just across the road from the station. We chose the hotel as it was relatively cheap so we weren't expecting much which I think was a... More

Probably the worst hotel I have tried in Geneva in the past ten years... and it was a real trest, as I spent 4 night there... The single room are really ridiculously small. Tea/coffe machine was avaible and I requested it when I booked my room on line. of course, it wasn't in the room when I arrived, and when... More

I stayed here for one night while in Geneva on business in mid-Nov, and it was just what I needed. I knew of the place because a colleague often stays there when she is in Geneva, and I had seen it during a previous visit when I was staying at another hotel across town. It is right across from the... More

Booked this hotel last minute for a one-night business stay, chosen because of its proximity to the train station and how much cheaper it was in comparison to other hotels. I arrived at 11am, and although check-in was at 2pm, there was an available room so I could drop off my luggage and freshen up before going to the office... More

Just spent three days in Geneva. Stayed in Hotel Astoria, very helpful staff, clean hotel, rooms a little basic, however you only sleep there. Could do with a little more drawer space and maybe the carpet could do with a shampoo. Towels and bedding clean. They also provide a travel pass which you can use on the trains, buses, trams...

Breakfast was basic but hot, They have an excellent location as well. I had a great experience and have rated this highly because of the staff and their very warm... More

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).
