This Hotel is situated close to the Lake in the City of Geneva so is in an ideal location. The Hotel is on the (top) 6th Floor of a building that has shops and a restaurant on the ground floor.. then office space on the subsequent levels. Upon arrival we were greeted by a new Receptionist (in training) who was... More

Hotel Central was an acceptable place to stay in an expensive city. The room we had was spacious and clean but had not been updated for awhile. A petit dejeuner was provided and the desk manager was very friendly and helpful

Visit Geneva in Jan 2012 and only found time to write the review now. But here's the rundown. 1. Service - this is probably the best part of this quaint little hotel. It's not a full hotel as, don't expect room service that you might find on the chains, but the hotel is family-run i think and the staff that... More

I have to admit I was pleasantly surprised by Hotel Central as my first impression was not favorable. First of all, it is hard to find on the street as its tucked away in an office building. Reception is on the sixth floor and the lifts were quite small. However, the hotel staff were friendly, accommodating and helpful. The rooms... More

Stayed in a triple room. The room had a bunkbed and pulldown bed, which were all wide and very comfortable – no creaking, good mattress and pillow, big warm blanket. The round balcony was on the corner of the house and had nice views on all sides. There was a shower in the room (nice hot water, with good pressure),... More

We stayed here in late January for two nights. We only booked a standard room, so we knew the room would be fairly average. Everything was satisfactory, and the hotel has many pluses. However, some small things irked me greatly. The pros were: - Comfortable bed and pillow (very important for hotels in my opinion!); - Had a DVD player--Not... More

very nice family-run hotel right in the center of Geneve, next door to a number of good dining points, the Old city, and most transportation nodes. The hotel is very clean, everything necessary is present, I specially recommend the apartments 41 and 45, that are a one-bedroom apartments with a well-equipped kitchen. The only downside is the construction site nearby,... More

We stayed at this hotel during the heatwave in July 2013. Looking at the average temperatures, we decided not to book a room with air conditioning, which we ended up regretting so very much!

Dear Eva T Thank you for your very honest report on the hotel. Yes being so well located also has its downside....a bit noisy at night when people are in the streets. Glad to hear your stay was otherwise comfortable and we hope to see you back...in the winter maybe! With best regards Erik Gangsted More
