I'm really not sure how to rate this hotel. The pros are: - really close to train station - excellent eateries across the street - 5 minute walk to tourist information centre - no road noise - scrupulously clean Cons - rooms are really small, the whole room would fit in the bathroom of most other hotels I've stayed in...

This hotel is so close to the station but being one street back makes it pretty quiet. The rooms are very modern and exceptionally clean. I needed to get a 0630 train to Lausanne and had time for breakfast, check out and still made the train with 15 minutes to spare. Staff were very helpful too.

I stayed in this hotel for 6 nights from 14 September to 20 September 2014 and I had a good experience with this hotel and I enjoyed my stay there.

For our two day stay in Geneva this time we chose the Cristal Hotel, as we wanted to be near the train station for early departure to Paris. We were warmly greeted and given room 507 It was compact, modern and spotlessly clean. The bed was comfortable. There was no outside noise and the location was excellent, right next to... More

I stayed here for five nights for a conference trip. The hotel is very well located and the price was very competitive for Geneva although it was a special conference price. I liked the rather minimalistic design of the hotel. The room was smallish but without any extra useless furniture it was efficient use of space and just perfect for... More

The hotel is very close to Gare Cornavin train station, easy to find and easy to get to when pulling luggage. Though you can’t actually see it on exiting the station, just head for the station underpass and go through, heading in the direction of Mont Blanc bridge, walk maybe 50 metres to Rue Pradier, turn left at a short...

Rooms are extremely small, but overall the cleanliness and efficiency of the room is very good and the rooms have a walk in shower which is nice. The rooms overall are very modern and new, the bed relatively comfortable although the pillows are terrible. The front desk staff are nice but pretty much worthless when it comes to helping with...

My family stayed at this hotel while traveling through Geneva from Switzerland to Paris. It has a great location, just a couple minutes walk from the train station through the shopping mall and out to the street, then around the corner to the hotel. The rooms are standard European size, smaller than US, but adequate for your needs. The glass... More

Geneva is an expensive city. The Hotel Cristal offers good value for money, is convenient and well kept. Arrived in GVA without accommodation, I was able to hop on the wifi in Starbucks across from the main station and book a room, unaware that the hotel was right next door. The single rooms are small, but very modern and stylish.... More
