As soon as we walked into the reception, we knew that this wasn't the same as the pictures advertised. Reception staff are friendly and polite but it stops there. We were given our room key and we made our own way up to the second floor. Walking into our room, we had to laugh it was that bad. The only... More

Hotel Moderne is very close to Geneva Coravain Station. The hotel is from old time. The rooms are old with old furniture and old bed. Hotel reminds you of the motels in the movies.In the room there were not outlets for charging the phones. This hotel is not a best part of Geneva, Lot of unsavoury characters around that area....

We thought the hotel would be better considering what they charge. Found it to be very outdated and smelly. Felt like a room you see in a fifties film. Dirty massive armchair in room, old tatty furniture, rusty pipes from floor to ceiling in rusty, decrepit bathroom. No hairdryer although they will give you one in reception. Lack of plugs.... More

Although it's close to the centre and lake, the location is in a dodgy neighbourhood with shady characters hanging around; we didn't feel very safe walking around at night. The price was affordable considering Geneva is expensive and wifi was free, but this hotel is listed on most travel websites as having an old charm which is absolutely not true.... More

The hotel is not so modern at all! But this was the least expensive hotel at Geneva with a attached bathroom and breakfast. The location is great, only 3 minutes walk from the station. Breakfast is good. Overall average hotel.

Stayed for 7 nights in February. Got weird bite marks and first thought mosquitos. But on the last day I saw one of the little buggers crawling on the bed. Should have called the reception way earlier and complained, but I had to leave in a rush. Still disgusting. In general the hotel is very run down and shabby. Definetly... More

Stayed here for 1 night, chose this hotel because of the rate given. Decent room, a bit small but adequate. This hotel is close to almost everything in Geneva. Train station is just 5 minutes walk, Lake Geneva is just 10 minutes walk, lots of cafe and pubs nearby. Friendly and courteous staff. Watch and swiss army knife lovers, plenty... More

If you look for a five star , just forget about. But if you are a budget traveller, this is an oasis. Why do I say so, reasons many : 1. Charges are reasonable when compared with sky tocketing rates in other hotels 2. Location is just perfect, behind the Gare Cornavin train and bus station 3. Grocery shops are... More

Well, where to begin? If you are used to the sanitised, bland corporate hotel world you may turn your nose up at this cute hotel beautifully placed in Geneva. If you do then you are missing a treat! Yes it's modelled in the 1970s but none the worse for that. The roms are clean, safe and have everything you need.... More

If you have a meeting in Geneva and need a decent inexpensive hotel, this hotel will do. Location is excellent just next to the train station. Rooms are tiny and decor nothing special really. Staff was friendly though and as always in Geneva hotels, getting complementary bus pass is always a plus.
