Switzerland in general is an expensive country. As we were on budget, we decided to stay in Hotel Central and we believe the relation price-quality is very good for Geneva.

The location is good coz it's not far from the station but it's a bit hard to find when we first go there. But in fact it's just next to the bibliothèque. And before entering to the building, you need to press the bell(the reception is on the 6th floor,there are lifts which you can take up to there.) The... More

The hotel is well located. It's near to many touristic points: Cathédrale Saint-Pierre (and its site archéologique), Jardin Anglais, L'horloge fleurie, Jet d'Eau. If you arrive by train, you can go to the hotel by walking. Take the tram at the station Cornavin and get off at Bel-Air stop. The hotel is few meters from this point. The hotel offers... More

Best place to stay in Geneva for a short visit. I have visited the hotel with 7 friends, (2 rooms: 1 of 4 people and 1 of 3 people). The hotel is vert central, hence it's name, and friendly staff.

MAKE SURE to get the large room, otherwise you may be left with a common bathroom for several guests. Not a great view of the city but it's well located - bordering the Old Town and... More
