Like many of the "mid-range" hotels in the Paquis area of Geneva, this hotel is feeling a bit worn down and tattered at the edges. And also like it's neighbours, "mid range" in this area doesn't come at mid-range prices. The lobby, lift and stairs look as though once upon a time they were nice and tasteful, and now it... More

Room was ok, location great - close to train station and easy walking distance to old town. Staff ok but not overly friendly, breakfast was lousy. Stretching the 'three stars' tag somewhat. With a bit of effort, this could be a very good place to stay

Geneva is an expensive place for accommodations. Capitole Hotel offers a better rate but the service provided is questionable. It is close to the central railroad station, but at night this area is not very safe. The double bed in the room was made of two single beds put together. It was hot but there was no A/C. They only... More

When you see the hotel catalog, you see a modernize and clean room. However, the room they gave me is like a 1970s left over room. See the pictures. My first night was very tired so I didn't complaint. The next day I complained to the reception. However, the reception said the manager is gone. All room booked. Nothing it... More

we were a little apprehensive about booking this hotel having read so many discouraging reviews but our doubts were all unfounded. The hotel is perfectly located, being mid-way between the railway station (Gare Cornavin) and the Lake, with both only minutes walk away. The hotel is also close to a large department store (Manor) where amazing sandwiches can be bought... More

Good location and service but poor room and breakfast. The location is pretty good, just beside to the railway station, and the service of reception is good as well. But the room is too small, and not so clean I think.

Hotel Capitole is near the Geneva cornavin station (5 min walking distance). The hotel sign may be hard to spot. The room we stayed in was a triple room and it was fantastic. Clean, super spacious, Jacuzzi tub in room, shampoo, soap etc available, hair dyer, and breakfast selection also good: croissants, ham, pork slices, scrambled eggs, tea, coffee, cheese,... More

Just normal hotel with a good location: railway station, bus station just 5 min walk. The lake is 10 min walk. Breakfast was ok for continental. Great reproductions at the stairs: Miro, Kandinskiy... It is a hard quest to take a shower without flooding the bathroom. A bit stuffy in the room, no aircon. A bit expensive for this room,... More
