Cornavin hotel located in the hear ot Geneva, it's behind the main railway, the shopping street, the lake and other sightseeing around the hotel within walking disctance. The staff were very friendly and cooperative. Breakfast was average with few items. Pillows was too soft to sleep and was not comfortable for me and there is no other kinds of pillows... 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

This is a clean, modern, value hotel. Staff was helpful. However, the location is about perfect. It is a 3 minute walk to the main train station in Geneva and a 7 minute train to the airport (one stop & you can ride free because they don't check tickets). It is a 5 minute walk to the river and old... More

Stayed here for 1n for motor show. Very close to station as in right next to station, a quick 5min train ride into airport, and venue for motor show. The hotel is more ideal for business than for holiday type hotel, large rooms but little dated. Location is good with 10 mins to lakes and good choice of restaurants nearby..despite... More

Reasons to stay here: - Next door to Gare Cornavin--THE Geneva public transport hub. Get anywhere from here - Generous breakfast - Comfortable rooms. Ask for a room above the 6th floor - Once you are through the downtown area, quick access to a run around the Lake - 10-20 min walk across the bridge to the Old City Reasons... More

The Cornavin is a reasonable business hotel, right by the main transport hub in Geneva. It has a fabulous breakfast room at the top of the hotel giving wonderful views; the rather average breakfast doesn't quite match the view though. The room I had on the street side of the hotel (as opposed to the railway side) was pretty spacious... More

Stayed for 4 nights and although the location was ideal, and the rooms quiet and comfortable, the hotel amenities were lacking. Breakfast only (and it was the same lame buffet every day). It's also strange to have guests walking through to their rooms while eating breakfast. The staff were not particularly friendly or helpful. I will be traveling to Geneva... More
