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

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
