Nice basic hotel that is centrally located. However I found the staff to be quite rude and arrogant. Also the website needs to be updated as it advertises that they have car parking available which was the major thing we were looking for when looking for accommodation but when we got there we were told by one of the rude...

The jury is out! I dont know what is prefrerable!. The pre-renovated hotel with large rooms and lower rates that we stayed in a few times, or a modern, small, higher rate room. The hotel is a 3 minute walk from the station. We arrived about 1330, quick check-in by an arrogant reception clerk, who was downright rude when my... More

Likes: Good location, very close to Geneva train station, which is like 10 minutes from airport Other things: Small, basic rooms Ordinary breakfast spread Tiny TV in rooms - 17 or 19 inch Unless you keep curtains on, zero privacy all the time Not great views from window

This hotel is close to the railway station, but would not recommend it for warmth and friendliness of staff. I have never experienced such arrogance in any hotels anywhere in the world...we felt like complete nuisances, and the receptionist was extremely rude...there are other hotels in the same area that we will go to next time.

This hotel is quite modern but very weird, it is close to train station but it is all bad from here. The hotel was less than 20% occupancy, with never more than three people at included breakfast, so a 1PM check in with zero temperature outside would have been expected. But the man on reception, who did not wish to... More

I stayed in this hotel for one night during my business trip. This hotel has excelent location, few minutes from old town square, and one minute from public transport and trains. Great value for your money.

We only stayed in the hotel one night. The hotel and room do rely remind of a cristal, it is not our style, but the staff is very kind and helpful. The room was clean and the beds good. The down side in the room is that what ever light you might turn on any where in the room or... More

Looking for a decent hotel, close to the station with a walk in shower, quality room, solid walls so no noise from neighbours, lift and excellent buffet breakfast, tv, telephone (inter room calling facilities), little or no noise from street, comfy bed, decent lighting and enough space for hanging clothes, a safe, tea and coffee facilities with ultra clean quality...
