Very well located, walking distance from the city center, train station and public transport and also within the old town with its charming streets, plenty of shops and restaurants. I rented a unit through air bnb "hotel central" itself is more of a bed and breakfast than hotel per say (continental breakfast is delivered to your room). My family only... More

The hotel is located in the heart of crans montana; its cozy and very quiet. Although there was only one staff for both reception and the miniature bar, the lady was extremely nice, helpful and makes you feel at home. One negative thing about the hotel, is there breakfast area which is extremely small and more of a canteen. The... More

The is a great value for the central location of the hotel which is right in the middle of historic Geneva. For what you pay for the room, it is easily one quarter the price of anything you will find around it. Arrival - So why is the price so low among all the other hotels in the area. The... More

We stayed in the three bedroom apartment which was perfect for our family (three teenagers). The views from the apartment were stunning, postcard perfect. Located within the old town, the hotel was an easy walk to the key attractions and some charming restaurants. The rate included a continental breakfast which with Geneva's food prices was particularly good value, and allowed... More

My family and I visited Hotel Central in June. It was one of many stops along a ten day tour of Europe. It was by far one of THE best places we stayed. The location was easily accessible both to the train, downtown and many tasty restaurants. The staff were not only accommodating, but we're so incredibly friendly, and fun!... More

This hotel is in an excellent location - right in the centre with several attractions within walking distance (and plenty of restaurants). The hotel provided free 'transport cards' for the duration of your stay which was useful when travelling to the airport, and also the UN Building (a MUST) and botanical gardens. The hotel itself was a little tricky to... More

The Hotel Central has an excellent location - inside the old town, and close to all the main sites. The room was small but had patio doors, and a small balcony where one could stand and have a look. There was no air conditioning but the room had a fan. When you enter the room, the entry hallway doubles as... More

A very ideally located hotel for the purpose of stay in Geneva which was seeing friends. The hotel was strangely situated in the building, but once there a great reception, friendly staff, we had an apartment room for 3 of us, a great set up and very clean and well presented. Would definitely return here

This hotel is in a great location in center of the city and within easy walking distance of the lake and all the best sights. It was a very small room, but very cheap for Geneva. Staff were friendly and helpful.
