Depending on which floor you stay on does the view work. I am here almost every 2 months on business - purely for covenience and space of room which is otherwise at a premium in Geneva. Rooms of the lower floors tend to have moldy odor, maybe due to the lack of air circulating in the bathrooms. Higher floors, not... More

Stayed here for one night on my way to Italy. It is right outside the train station and on a busy street, but I did not hear any noise at all. My room was on the panoramic floor and had huge windows and an incredible view of the cathedral next door and the fountain. The room had a small fridge... More

This hotel is ideally situated in the heart of the city (2 mins walk from the central train station). Besides being able to walk to all the main attractions in Geneva's city centre, the hotel rooms are spacious and clean. Yes, the hotel is not posh, but there really is no need to spend a fortune on a room when... More

The Cornavin hotel has been an excellent surprise. Usually railways station Hotels are so-so - functional at best, cheap most of the time. In this respect, the Cornavin beats the odds - part of a big continental chain, it is pretty much business-oriented: large lobby, highly polite, smiling professionnal staff, nice panoramic room for breakfast in the morning. I have... More

The hotel is across the street from the main train station, so it couldn't be more convenient. Tip: If you are heading down Rue du Mont Blanc, there is a tunnel under all the bus lines into the train station. The room was much nicer than I expected for the price. The main quirk was that the wall between the... More

We have stayed at this hotel several times. Disclaimer: Just joined Trip Advisor so we are only writing about the most recent stay in July 2015 but through numerous visits in the last decade we have become friendly with all the hotel staff and the owner. (Geneva airport is an excellent portal for European travel.). The Cornavin is situated right... More

Second time I stayed here for business, they run a decent 4 star operation but mind there is no bar or restaurant on site. Breakfast is just OK, mostly a limited continental spread with scrambled eggs and sausages. But they frequently run out of scrambled eggs and take too long to replenish. Nice views from 8th floor breakfast location. Rooms... More

This is a bit of a 'robustly' built hotel. i like the clock in the mini-atrium stretching ground level to top floor. The whole place is fine but, well, just fine really. No complaints but nothing stands out. It's very convenient for town centre

stayed two nights at this place on a business trip to Geneva. Having stayed in Geneva many times before on business I know how hard it is to find an affordable hotel centrally located which is not in the red light district and actually still has availability which finally also fits the travel policy of your employer. Thus, this place... More

Perfect and good price for Geneva... If you can, enjoy the panorama rooms. Very central, close to train station and night pubs by walking. From airport is also 30 min with traffic. Breakfast is fantastic: at the 8th floor you can also enjoy very nice view...
