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.

This hotel is too close to the station and easy to access and find out. Just to cross the bridge and the views from the hotel is awesome. The room was big enough for us, clean and tidy and had room service. We had a balcony which was the plus point. Beautiful river views and there was a house beside... More

Three of us were attending a conference for work and stayed at this hotel- strangely, we found it on Airbnb, which was a little bizarre since it was clearly a hotel. The location is absolutely superb- it is pretty easy to find and right in the middle of the old town with many restaurants, shops and landmarks in the area.... More

Dear Esthersnippe Thank you for your nice feedback. There is a hotel in the building but also 2 floors of appartments which are promoted through AirB&B very successfully and with many returning guests. Subject to AirB&B comments we have recently installed private espresso coffee machines in the appartments and leave a selection of 6 capsules per stay. As breakfast is... More

We are a family with two kids in primary school, and we spent a wonderful week in apartment 44 -- it was perfect for us. The apartment is part of with Hotel Central, which means there is daily maid service and light breakfast in the morning.

We chose the hotel for it's location, which was fabulous, on the edge of the old town. The rooms are very small, but spotlessly clean, and the staff were very friendly. Ideal for a short stopover.Can be noisy late on weekend nights, but you're well above the noise, so not a big deal!
