The ceiling lights were gloomy, the furniture very early 80, tv was very small, and curtains not very occlusive in the morning. Internet wi-fi could come for free at this price... Otherwise, friendly staff and good location.... Except if you have to go to uno neighbourhood :-)

We did book a room for 4 people for one night. The room was very big, with modern furniture and comfortable beds. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Central location - lake can be reached within a frew minutes walking. Breakfast was okay. Good value for money. Will book again next year.

Our small family (2 Adults, 2 Children) enjoyed staying in the family room of the Calvy Hotel. Staff were friendly and the location was very handy to key locations around town. The breakfast was simple and the rooms were no longer brand new, but everything was clean and tidy. We enjoyed our stay.

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

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
