I stayed here for 2 weeks when on a business trip. My stay was long and wanted a place which you be comfortable. Calvy proved to be a decent place to stay in. The room was comfortable. No disturbance, quite and calm environment. The rooms were big enough and clean. The hotel provides microwave and fridge in all the rooms... More

We stayed 2 nights here, loved Geneva but would not stay here again. The room was pretty awful really, run down and barely adequate. On the plus side, the staff were really good, helpful and welcoming, and we enjoyed the breakfast!

We found a fairly run-down, old-fashioned property that was certainly not the three stars it claims. Everything fell short of a good standard. For instance, we even found a middle-aged person in his underwear asleep on the bed when we checked-in, because the hotel didn't know the room they had allocated us was occupied! The car-park for which an extra... More

You are in Geneva so this is 3 stars, everywhere else in Europe this will be 2. Very basic and cheap, rather old and anonymous building, tiny doors and walls, hostel like decor. No specific complain if this was a 2 stars hotel but pretends to be a 3 stars and above all charges accordingly. If you do not find... More

I enjoyed staying at Calvy.

The room had microwave oven and fridge, safebox,good bed. Breakfast was continental plus juices,eggs and fruits, what is quite reasonable. Nice staff,helpful. I... More

Calvy is an older hotel. Near to the 2 main shopping streets in Geneva and the public transport. The staff were all very helpful and friendly. Rooms were clean and tidy but dated. Breakfast was a good continental and included in the overall price. Would stay here again.

Stayed for one night as part of a business trip. Hotel was fine just to sleep in but I'm glad I wasn't staying longer or paying for it myself! Facilities in room were very basic (old tv, weak shower, very thin sheets and thin walls so I could hear every time the person in the next room walked around, plugged... More

We stayed overnight for one night. The hotel was quite a bit out from the centre of town and not that easy to find way back in. Found it very `muggy' overnight. Decor and facilities and breakfast all a bit basic, but perfectly OK for an overnight stay.....just wouldn't have wanted to be there for a holiday.

The hotel is reasonably priced, very close to the tram line and in a nice quiet location. The rooms are basic but well appointed. The breakfast was inclusive and plentiful. staff were friendly. I would stay again next time I am in Geneva.

Geneva doesn't "do" affordability, on the whole. But the Hotel Calvy does! The rooms are much better than average, but they are not luxurious (for that you pay an extra 600 Swiss Francs per night at other places). But the Calvy has comfortable rooms, neighbourhood charm, excellent public transport links, better than adequate food, and pleasant and helpful staff. Details... More
