I had a room that was supposed to be good enough for 4 adults, but the room we actually got was just about adequate for 2 adults and a child. It was small, extremely noisy and ill maintained. The service also was nothing worth talking about. Overall, it was a waste of money. I would not recommend it to anyone... More

My stay at the Hotel Moderne was the worst stay of my life. The room was like a sauna. There was no air conditioning or a fan. There was no air flow whatsoever. We were put in the noisest and hottest room I've ever stayed in. I ended up sleeping about 4 hours that night. It was so hot I... More

The best things about this hotel are the price (lowish, but not low enough for the quality), the free Geneva public transit ticket , and the friendly and informative reception. Otherwise, beware. Our room had a dirty bed cover, the carpet in the hallway (which wasn't illuminated--the flourescent was busted) was stained and worn out, the light in the dreary,... More

I booked this hotel from SBB website which should be reliable, but actually it wasn't. The information about this hotel was three star and each guest room is boasted to be en suite room. However the single room I booked is just a small room which couldn't be smaller without toilet and shower. The noise from the street and ground... More

I picked the hotel for price and convenience. It was the cheapest I could find near the railway station. It was only a few minutes from the station, which was nice, but CHF 200 was hardly cheap. It was, however, the best I could find. The breakfast was OK. The room was very small and drab and the bath tiny.... More

Stayed one Saturday night here but were very dissatisfied. This is supposed to be a 3* hotel - well maybe it was at one time, but there wasn't even a hairdryer in our room - even budget hotels have them these days !! But this wasn't cheap - CHF215 is about £95 ($175) - yes, I know it's in the... More

I stayed at this hotel with my girlfriend in October 2004. Moderne is a decent hotel close to the main railway station with several supermarkets selling food nearby. The room was quite clean and spacious, but the furnuture and bathroom fittings were very old, probably dating from the 60th, when the hotel was build. It was quiet at night, no... More

Well, the hotel indeed celebrates its 50th anniversary this year and it was probably modern when it was built :) I didn't see any highway within 2 KM of the hotel, and the soundproofing is indeed quite good. Its rates are very good for Geneva. To access the hotel from the train station, go to the basement shopping level and... More

Geneva is an expensive city, and I chose this hotel because it is much cheaper than most. I had a room with shared bathroom and toilet facilities on the floor which were pretty basic, but okay. Breakfast time was always busy. Staff very polite and friendly, but despite Swiss attention to detail the hotel lost a courier package delivered for... More

how they can get over $100 a night for this place is incredible. one of the worst hotels you can imagine; it might be ok for a $12 a night hostel, but why they think they are worth anything more is worth a dissertation. soundproof windows? are they kidding? this is a lie. make them come up to the room...
