We stayed 2 nites in this hotel. Even though the room is small but it was expected as Geneva is an expensive city. We paid CHF125 room with breakfast & it was a good deal for us. Location is near to almost everything. Walking distance to Lake Geneva & the Jet d'eau water fountain. Shops, cafes,restaurant & even the bus/tram... More

This was an odd place, and too expensive for what it was. The room was tiny and I couldn't believe when we checked out that there were two further levels of budget underneath the one we chose, the bottom tier must be a coffin. The breakfast is just breads and spreads and you have to take it in your tiny... More

Stayed in Feb 2014 and found this hotel at a reasonable price considering other hotels in Geneva. The hotel is a 15 min walk from Cornavin railway station. free transport pass as it is the norm in Geneva. Since we were on honeymoon, they gave a room upgrade (with balcony). very thoughtful. breakfast was simple and delivered in the room.... More

Get good, clear directions before starting out for the hotel. We were on public transportation and then walking from the stop, dragging our bags, so every step we spent lost (there were many!) was a bigger deal. It's off the main street, in the upper floors of a building not marked as a hotel, so you're not going to just... More

Dear travelmak.. Thank you for your lengthy comments. Yes many positives with being in the center of town near to everything but also the noise of clubbers, dustbin collection etc. The room category you had is our smallest category so if you wanted something bigger we do also offer that at SFr 30.- more per night....not bad for Geneva!
