I was travelling with my family in June 2014 and we decided to stay for one night in Cristal Design hotel. We arrived around 9.30 pm and we were asked to wait until the hotel staff will check the room. It was ok for me but after 30 minut waiting we were told that they can't find the key of... More

Hotel in city center. It's looking like Ibis Budget a bit because of room construction, modul furnitures. Small but confortable room. Basic and not special breakfast, French kind. Service is good and helpful.

The rooms are compact but modern, which is rare for Geneva where the hotels tend to be old. And it is also reasonably priced, which is hard to find in this city. It is conveniently located near the train station, with the rest of the city a short walk away. The area around the station isn't the cleanest or safest,... More

This hotel was excellent value for the money we spent. The location is fabulous, walking distance to restaurants, the lake, and lots of shopping. The train station is a 2 minute walk away. The room was very clean, and had a fun, modern edge to it. I did not find that the room was any smaller than most rooms throughout... More

Hotel is ideally located near train station and a short walk to old town. The staff were helpful without being too over the top. The bedding was fresh and comfortable. My only complaint was that the room was a little small for two large suitcases. Overall happy with our stay.

This hotel was easy to find, close to the train station (but set back a street), in a safe area - right next to a Starbucks and a pedestrian walking street with lots of restaurants, and convenient for exploring Geneva. As others have noted, it's very modern and clean, but the rooms are small (smaller than most New York City... More

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights in Geneva during mid October 2014. Highly recommended due to it's prime location and very modern clean finish but rooms are on the small side, although fully functional. Ideal for a base and somewhere to sleep but not so much if you intend to hang out in the room for extended... More

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. As it has been mentioned in the Web site of this hotel, it is one of the 9 hotels in Berne, Geneva, Lausanne and Zürich that are managed by Fassbind... More
