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.

My husband and I stayed at the Central Hotel in Geneva for one night and after extensive research via Trip Advisor came upon the Central Hotel. I then did my research via their own website and considered the room options. We chose the Junior Suite for space, 2 large rooms, one of which was the bedroom, the other a very... More

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

Dear Nuccio77 Thank you for your comments. Glad you enjoyed your stay but would just like to clarify that the refurbishment is not in the hotel building but opposite and that we do have more reasonable priced rooms but that you stayed in a larger room and our prices are like the Montbrillant but not next to the railway station...

I recently tried my hardest to get a ‘half decent’ hotel in Geneva, without resorting to mugging a hedge fund investor for the money you require, something around the £150 a night mark,but couldn’t, as there weren’t any, for some reason Tuesday must be convention day. In desperation I ended up at the Central Hotel for 102 EUROS a night... More

The title sums it up. For the price, everything was excellent. I had a lovely and spacious room with a balcony overlooking Geneva. Step out of the front door and you're in the heart of town with everything you need around the corner. Breakfast is simple but nice and delivered to your door at your preferred time.
