I stayed for three nights between the 13th and 16th of March 2015. Very handy for Cornavin Station. It is a nice modern hotel, very clean and comfortable. I have stayed before in 2012 and found it good then as well. A reasonable continental breakfast is provided, but note that the hotel does not have a bar or restaurant. I... More

Excellent hotel! One of the cleanest hotels i've been in! Although its close to the the train station it's absolute silence inside. 24-7 reception. We arrived near midnight which wasn't a problem at all. They might need to improve the smile on the receptionist. Starbucks is located next to the hotel if you are a coffee lover.

My single room was really tiny but had all I needed for the night and was very clean. The breakfast buffet was well stocked and served on the top floor with a great view. I liked the design but it might be a question of taste. Rates are average for expensive city Geneva.

Room was great, it was super clean and modern. Cleanliness was the best point of this hotel, I think I've ever been as clean hotel as this was. Location was also great near train station, and it felt safe even late at night. Breakfast was very good. WiFi worked fine. There was a kettle and coffee in room. But.. Most... More

It's the year 2015. Wifi should be fast, at least reasonably fast. Not so slow that I can't play VAIN GLORY! AHHH! My computers were actually failing the speed test the internet was so slow. If you have any expectation that wifi shouldn't suck, don't go to this hotel. Overall though the hotel does have a nice sci-fi decor. Also,... More

Very different inside from our last stay which was before rennovation! Fantastically located ... especially arriving by train... So easy to walk to with bags on wheels. Easy to find as next to Starbucks. Rooms small but have all amenities like jug, coffee, safe etc. Renovations will probably date quickly, but right now is wonderful...bright and clean! Front desk always... More

The hotel was unique experience. Nice modern settings. Very near train station. Well maintained. Rooms are not spacious though. I agree with fellow traveller curtains are required to keep your privacy

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
