I stayed here for 2 nights. The hotel is right next to the Central Station. Location is perfect. It is only 15-20 minutes walk to the River. Although the room is a bit "old", it is acceptable. The hotel even offered us a complimentary ticket that I can take free public during my time in Geneve. Besides, the room key... More

We have been at the Cornavin Hotel on a Business Trip and sayed 3 nights. The location right next to the central station is great. The rooms were nice and clean, nothing special. With the 2 windows, I did not hear any street, tram or train which was good. We wondered why staff in the breakfast room and also in... More

Geneva is hugely expensive. That's a fact, But it's possible to find good, clean, comfortable accommodation with some searching. Start by using the Geneva Tourism website rather than going to the hotels directly. It has some great deals for very good hotels, often half the asking price on the websites (and with breakfast and wifi included). That's how we came... More

Yes, the rooms, especially on the "Panorama floor" are large. But what is so "Panorama" with the view over the railway tracks? Three single beds, each one meter wide, for a single guest: The room looked like a dormitory of a youth hostel. The look is "worn", with two cracks in a single mirror.. Getting back to the hotel late... More

The location cannot be beaten; You just exit the main entrance of the Cornavin Station and turn right; Or after getting your bearings, you can exit the station entrance that is directly opposite the hotel building. My room was spacious and well lit and we were not bothered by any noise from outside. The breakfast room was fabulous; Although the... More

The hotel was very comfortable with great customer service. It's in a great location next to the railway, a short walk from the lake and the old town. The only real issue was the lack of a real bar area. The only option is a few bottles/cans in reception and no where really nice to sit, drink and chat. It... More

The hotel was comfortable with very good customer service. Breakfast was substantial and the rooms clean. The only real shortcoming was the lack of a proper bar. The hotel has a breakfast room on the top floor which could become a very nice bar in the evening. The only current option is a few bottles adjacent to reception and no... More

Location next to transport station. Perfect. Sound insulation excellent. Perfect. Was on the 1st floor back room so no view and had to keep curtains pulled always. Shame but no biggie. Breakfast good. View from breakfast room inspiring. Staff very helpful. Room excellent. Highly recommended. Would ask to stay at a higher floor next time.

Hotel is in a great location, with a generous breakfast and a transport pass. However, the double bed is just 2 singles pushed together (common in Europe). For me it was quite uncomfortable. Also, it was in the winter, so the AC is shut off. The room can get very hot at night, so the only option is to open... More
