Great location just one minute from the train station, easy check inn, clean and basic room, great breakfast with view to Jet d’Eau, free wifi and good service from the staff. Would definitely stay here again.

We had a 1 night stop in Geneva on our Swiss trip. Hence I wanted a hotel that was close to the train station. In that sense this was one of the best choices. The hotel was right next to the train station and could not be better placed. However the rooms left a lot to be desired. The space... More

Flew into Geneva for a one day stop-over before heading on to Zermatt. We wanted a place close to the train station so that we could catch our train the following morning. Hotel Cristal Design is less than a block from the train station. Just take the underpass from the train station and you emerge staring directly at a Starbucks... More

Pros - clean - quite in room - location good for station - price for Geneva Cons - some staff cold unfriendly - location - area around the station not as good as the old town - price relatively expensive, for what you get. I would rather stay in the Ibis for business. As a tourist I would not stay... More

A wonderful little hotel right in the centre of Geneva, a short walk from the Lake and train station. Lots of restaurants within a few mins walk. The hotel itself was clean and comfortable and the staff very friendly and helpful. The room was a bit small but its fine for a few nights stay. I would definitely stay there... More

pro: - location is good, just 2min walk to cornavin main station and 15min walk to downtown. - room and facilities are new, esp. the bath room. Con - room is quite small and we didn't get the requested room facing mountain/lake. -service is not consistent. The lady is very efficient and responsive while the guy is quite slow.

I like the fact that the train takes you directly from the airport to the hotel. So qui and easy! The rooms are small (like everywhere in Geneva) but well organized and clean! It's comfortable. The breakfast are too expensive, go next door to Starbucks.

This hotek has a great location and a helpful staff. The rooms are clean and sufficient. It is trying to be a trendy boutique hotel but stops short of this. The sky blue decor is cheap and tacky looking not chic. My main problem with the room was with the thermostat which I could not seem to work it to... More

Stayed at the Cristal for a convention being held at the Palexpo at the airport. The beauty of this hotel is that it is 2 minutes walk from the train station where you can pick up a train, taxi, or bus ( #5) to the expo hall or airport. For the location it was very quiet ( I was on... More

The room I am in has one of the coolest design of all the hotel rooms I have stayed in. Feels like home and everything is clean. BUT, this is my third day here now, have seen many different people working at the front desk, and so far EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM failed to greet me with courtesy when... More
