So stayed for 7 long days in this high budget, low value hotel. One of my worst experiences ever. While the bed itself was OK, numerous other aspects rank it low. Wifi spotty day to day Hard floors in the bedroom No pictures or decorations Paper thin pillows Paper thin towels Key has hotel name and room number Front desk... More

Booked a last minute getaway treat for me and my partner to Geneva for 1 night. Chose this hotel as price was reasonable and very central location. Arrived early and dropped the bags off, the young man on reception spoke very good English was efficient but lacked any welcome or friendliness - may be a Swiss trait but did not... More

Ok location, room small but clean and comfortable, great breakfast on the top floor overlooking roofs and mountains, but the best was the staff particularly in reception, very kind, professional and helpful. Thank you to everyone for a nice stay :)

Located just a few steps away from the Cornavin train station, makes it a perfect choice to stay in Geneva. The main attractions of the city, i.e. the lake and the old town are within walking distance. The hotel provided a complimentary public transportion card that you can use during your stay in Geneva, and you can also use it... More

This hotel has very nice rooms in an excellent location (literally 100 mts from the train station). Because the hotel is in a road that is away from the station it is reasonably quiet considering where it is. Since it is close to the train station, you are perfectly located for public transport (the hotel will give you a free... More

I walked out of the station and walked directly to this place, luckily they had a room. For 130 CF, I was surprised how nice the room was, it is super clean, roomy, great bathroom, and modern. Location is excellent, right by central train station AND it is quite! I am a very light sleeper and didn't hear anything. The... More

Location great for train station, so very easy to or from airport or for travel within Switzerland. Room an ok size with a good comfortable bed, the sink in the entrance area not a great idea as floor can get wet, but means that bathroom smaller and bedroom bigger I suppose. Quite a nicely designed room, if not very comfortable... More

I stayed at this hotel for just one night at a time when Geneva was very busy, maybe that explains the CHF265 price that I paid for a small but perfectly decent and clean room. The check-in is perfunctory and rather unfriendly and a calls to reception for the wifi code from the room went unanswered for ten minutes. in... More

we were quite pleased with this hotel as a one night addition to our trip. conveniently located a block from the train station, it's top to bottom a modern design which i enjoy in a hotel. it has an efficient layout that utilizes the space, which some might consider a little small...we did not. the room was incredibly clean and...
