Don't be fooled by the name - this is not a modern hotel, everything about it is positively ancient! However it is very cheap and very well located - a few hundred metres from the main/central train station and 5 minutes' or less walk from Lake Geneva. The hotel was also clean and the staff very friendly. No aircon though,... More

Hotel Moderne is one of the most reasonable hotels in the center of Geneva aside hostels and apartments. It is in walking distance to both the main train station and Jardin D’Anglais. Hotel was a bit old, decoration of room was outdated and furniture was worn out. But the towels and linens were clean enough. The mini bar was full... More

Ok, with the high cost of Geneva Hotels, I opted for this one because frankly, It was cheapest, and breakfast was included. It is situated close to the Water Jet, the cinema and several streets of restaurants and clubs. Great right? The rooms were severely outdated, cracks on the walls, and reminded me of military housing...plain, old, and musty. We... More

As many reviews have already stated, there's not much "modern" about Hotel Moderne!! However, Geneva is an expensive place and if you wish to be centrally located with easy access to many cafes and restaurants, this is definitely value for money in Geneva. Our room was very ordinary but clean with a comfortable bed. The bathroom was challenging as the... More

This hostel was clean, had a good location, and a good price. It wasn’t perhaps spectacularly modern (haha) or beautiful, but it was completely fine. Breakfast was different types of bread which were slightly better than the usual fair and some cereals. The room was not as small as others described. If you want luxury, go somewhere else, but considering... More

Friendly Staff but the building is showing it's age, the room was cramped and the bathroom was clean but didn't feel it due to the aging of the finishes. Plug points were difficult to use and the holes were too small for some items. This hotel needs a makeover

Although the man on reception was very helpful I had to pay the 1 night and move to another hotel. Shared toilets & bathroom which were very small. Bedroom small but clean. Generally below acceptable standards and no chance of an upgrade as all rooms were full. Moved to another hotel.

Stayed for one night and would not come back. Didn't expect much for the price in Geneva, but this was pretty bad. Old and dated and worn are understatements. Light fixtures didn't work and bathroom fixtures were problematic. Had the feel of a place that wouldn't get 'clean' until it was completely renovated. Promotional price and location were the only...

we stayed in this place for one night and we were not dissapointed. Its located very central and right inbetween the railway station and the geneva fountain :) its a good value for money considering other places to stay in geneva are pretty pricey. The breakfast was surprising sufficient and had some pastries and ham pieces and some nice bread.... More
