Not an easy writing. Two faces, one black, another white. OK, its a good choice for design lovers. Quite a good product as long as design as such is a main criteria. Squeeze a maximum from quite a small room. On the other side a less bright picture. Breakfast is a worst value for money ratio I have been eating... More

The location for access to the train station is very good. The rooms are very clean and they all have a cool design. The look is very modern. The breakfast is not included so that turns out to be quite expensive

Really really good location in Geneva extremely close to the main central station so you can get from there to anywhere in the city, nice modern chic rooms, bathroom was good could do with a bit of updating. Would recommend for a short trip to Geneva where you want to see as much as you can in the amount of... More

Picked this hotel for its proximity to the main train station & were pleasantly surprised to find it was also close to the lake & Pont du Mont-Blanc. Easy walk to St Pierre's cathedral in the old town. The room was bigger & more comfortable than we were expecting on our modest budget, & we appreciated their quick offering of... More

This hotel well exceeded expectations. Chosen for the location, only a few minutes walk from the central station, it is very well located. Rooms have all the basic amenities, toiletries, coffee & tea etc, comfy bed, and desk. Good size. Definitely recommended for travellers on a moderate budget.

The hotel is located near the train station which is very practical but a bit far from the city center. The room is comfortable with a nice decor. The hotel is clean and the toiletries and the towels are changed every day. The tv is however extremely small. The staff is a bit passive. And I found it extremely weird... More

Very clean, ample space for solo stay and toiletries were just right and promptly refilled everyday. Towels changed everyday. Room temp & wind control works perfectly to keep entire room at exact desired temperature. This is an outstanding feature which even at more expensive hotels I noticed is missing. Location is exceptional - just next door to main station with... More

I spent 6 nights at the Cristal and was completely satisfied. It is quiet, unlike many of the other affordable hotels in the Cornavin train station area. Room is very modern -- which I like -- and very clean and comfortable. Staff were friendly and helpful. Location is perfect, near transport, restaurants, a very short walk to the lake and... More
