If travelling by rail this is a perfect hotel as it is right across the road from the station. Rooms were clean and staff were friendly. One small negative is that there was a nightclub or bar next door and it was a little noisy. The only serve breakfast but some good restaurants were within walking distance. Perfect fora three...

I have stayed in this magnificent, historic three star Hotel several times over the last four decades, and discovered that it gets better all the time, maturing like good wine. It started operating before the first World War, in the early years of the 20th century. Its central location opposite Geneva Railway Station and near many bus stops is ideal.... More

Stayed - luckily - only one night. The hotel is a total rip off; Service is poor and unfriendly. Rooms are broken, outdated and not maintained at all. Mattress must be 20 years old and you wake up with back-ache. LIghting in the room works only partially. This is a disgrace for Geneva and Switzerland. Only one good point: it... More

Well stayed there one night since I had to catch a flight the day after and it was not that great. The room was very small, the bed in my room was like only 0.5 meter from the door so I heard all things from the hallway. Just way too simple to be called a HOTEL, even simpler than the... More

I booked this hotel because it was easy to get to / from the station. Hotels are quite expensive in this town. Single rooms are a bit cheaper and my room was on one of the higher floors at the back. It had some view across the roofs of other buildings. Single rooms are smaller of course so I can't... More

This is a small hotel in a convenient location just across the Geneva Cornavin Train Station. If you are a traveller who prefers quick access to everywhere, then, hotels in this area is the place to be. However, there is a disadvantage of staying near a train station or near major thorough fares : which are noise, quality of neighborhood... More

They were kind enough to charge me BB and Iphone though at the reception. But it... More

If you are merely stopping in Geneva for one day before continuing by train to another destination, this hotel will merely do, since it is located literally across the street from the train station. That being said, there is really not much street noise or noise from the trains. Now, for the important stuff. The rooms are outdated. The beds... More
