Stayed here for one night, but was a part of the group tour so had no choice. Great location; right next to the railway station (just across the street) and on the main square just opposite the main shopping lane that leads to Lake Geneva. As far as its location goes, it's perfect. But service leaves much to be desired.... More

This was a really good hotel ideally situated outside the main train station and opposite a major bus terminal. From our room on the 9th floor we had wonderful views of the city towards the jet d'Eau. The only thing that let it down we're the pillows and the bed as we expected a double bed but had two singles... More

We are in the music business so we were in Geneva for a night for a show and staying at the Cornavin Hotel. This was beautiful hotel, located at a great spot with easy transport and many restaurants, pubs and the like. The views from the 8th floor Panoramic Room were incredible as well as the rooms. The staff was... More

I stayed at the Cornavin Hotel for 6 nights and overall it was a good experience. The staff is nice and helpful. In addition you can always get free candies at the reception. My room on the 8th floor was light and spacious. The most wonderful however was the view from my room's wall like windows - the Geneva fountain,... More

With its convenient location right next to the central train station, the hotel Cornavin is an ideal place to stay for business- and leisure-travellers. Hotel staff, both at the reception and on the floors are very friendly, helpful, and professional. The lobby with its comfortable sofas and armchairs makes an ideal place to meet. The hotel rooms are nicely equipped... More

We were travelling by train through Switzerland with a trafalgar tour and this hotel was ideal as it is just over the road from the station in geneva. Surprisingly there was no noise, our room was facing the traffic on the second floor, just a slight rumble as a tram went by. I slept well and I am a light... More

If you need to be near the train station, this is your hotel. It was a clean hotel but nothing stood out as a great hotel. The decor was different, like Scandanavian or Ikea style furnishing. We stayed there due to our "tour" and that was the selected hotel stay for our tour.

I stayed there again last week, after a couple of times before. It is expensive overall but decently priced for Geneva. Location is literally across the train station which is why I chose it (and may choose again). But keep your expectations low for the rest. It is clean enough. Breakfast is a bit pricey and below Swiss standards in... More

Ended up here as the hotel we had booked had no rooms. The staff were welcoming and helpful and the rooms were clean and spacious. The air conditioning seems a little old and wasn't particularly effective. Breakfast was good with great views over the city. A great place to stay for the price.

Great location right next to the train station. But on the quiet side of the square. Lovely big bedrooms and breakfast served in panoramic restaurant English TV channels which is nice when travelling. Good free wifi
