This hotel is conveniently located about 5 minutes from the main station. Check-in was very smooth. The receptionist (Paula) was super friendly and thorough in explaining their facilities and the surroundings. The room was neat and sparkling clean - it just felt very upscale. WiFi connection was excellent. We came back late at night and I didn't feel safety was... More

The hotel was amazing throughout - clean, tidy, the staff friendly, breakfast was a mix of cooked and continental and was actually very intimate in a small and cosy setting, and tasted great! The only downside was the very cramped location of the hotel, it was in a tiny backstreet which we felt did not match the hotel.

My husband and I just stayed here for our honeymoon and we loved everything about the hotel. Everybody is super friendly, they gave us a free train/bus pass and the hotel is like a 7 min walk from the central train station!! I loved our room and so many great hotels nearby as well!! Also, they have English channels which... More

Clean and very comfortable hotel conveniently located close to train station and lake. Good value for Geneva. Staff very welcoming and helpful. Locaity not the best, hotel reccomended not to use back streets at night, we felt safe using common sense in deciding which ways to walk.

This small 3 star Hotel feels like a 4 star! It is right in the Paquis area, near the lake and close to the railway station. The rooms are well appointed and much nicer decorated than many hotels of better categories. The breakfast is wonderful and the staff extremely friendly and helpful. I would not go to any other hotel... More

I have been hesitating to review this hotel, because I consider it a well-guarded secret. But since this review will soon disappear below the fold, I'll take the risk, particularly as I owe the hotel a favor: the last time I stayed there I was upgraded to the Executive Suite (amaaaaazing). I travel to Geneva fairly frequently, mainly to attend... More

Stayed for a night before heading for France skiing with friends. Good location walking distance or 1 tram stop from the station. Arrived by plane so picked up a free day ticket covering all Geneva transport. Clean comfortable and simple to get to and close to plenty of restaurants. I'd recommend the hotel for a few nights I'm Geneva. Staff... More

This is a good hotel if you need to stay near the central station (Gare Cornavin) or quite near the UN or WTO. I found the service quite bad though (the staff in the reception wasn't that helpful) and the price for the breakfast is a ripoff (80 CHF).

It didn't expect this sort of quality but very nice and spacious room. Staff were extremely hospitable and friendly. Good and quiet location as well. Doesn't have all the facility of a 4 star but definitely up there in terms of quality. Will come back if visiting Geneva again.
