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

Dear Laura H We were happy to see that you and your friends enjoyed your stay. Regarding the lifts, yes it is true they are not very large but I am sure you agree that it is better to have 2 small lifts than just 1 big one. Thank you again and do not hesitate to contact us if we... 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

Dear Canuck2011_11 Thank you for taking the time to write to us. We were glad that you in general enjoyed the hotel facilities... Just for your information we do have several categories of rooms and the room you stayed in we call a "compact room" as it is small and compact but very good value for money with shower facilities....

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.

Considering the cost of hotels in Geneva, this was around the cheapest that was not a hostel. The room was the basic small double with the bed against the wall, not a problem. The bathroom was odd as it was immediately as you opened the door, but again this wasn't a problem unless someone was going to barge into your... More
