We stayed in studio apartment 45 which has a four poster bed, 2 lounge chairs, cable tv, wireless internet( free), kitchette ( microwave, 2 hotplates, sink and fridge all in a separate room) large bathroom. By European standards it is enormous. We paid $AUS 170 which included a continental breakfast and a free travel pass for the 2 of us.... More

My colleague and I shared a room at the Hotel Central in February 2008. The folks are friendly, the place is clean and the breakfast is eatable. The room opened from the hallway into the bathroom which is a tad strange, but no complaints.

As I read some of the negative reviews of this place I think to myself "what were they expecting?". I could give this place a bad review if I compared it to some of the 5 star places I've stayed, but that would be unfair. I don't think it is fair to judge a hotel against a standard it isn't...

Stayed here last May 2009 for one night in Geneva. Couldn't believe how expensive Geneva was and we booked a room for about £65 which had it's own tiny bathroom which as others have commented, is next to the room entrance and which you walk through to get to the sleeping area. Room was small - one side of the... More

Weird entrance through an office block, reception at 6th floor. The small room with entrance via a minuscule bathroom, seemed even smaller being cladded all over including the ceiling. The room was street facing, hardly slept all night. Noise all through the night both from students on the corridor and from outside. A tray with our continental breakfast was passed... More

I will not lie and say this is the best hotel i have been too. The rooms are small, but very much in keeping with the price tag of the room. The room was clean, the staff was very good and over all this was good value for money. And the location was easy to find using public transport. We... More

Stayed one nite in this hotel. Location ideal, rooms compact you share the toilet, however your room practically next door. All rooms have their own shower and your breakfast delivered to your room. For the price, it is incredible value for money in an expensive area. If you are planning to soak up any of the hotel facillities, do not... More

My first impression was that the room was small and hallway smelled like a bathroom. Bathroom had hair in it when we first arrived. Area is noisey. We stayed on the weekend and there were people yelling and screaming into the night. Breakfast was ok. Very basic. Parking was a huge issue (unless you are staying on a Sunday). You... More

This is a good value hotel, ideally located near the old town of Geneva. The single rooms are quite small, but very bright and clean, furnished with an ikea sensibility. The rooms have balconies that overlook a square. The staff is friendly and helpful. There is free wifi. A small breakfast is served in the rooms, just a croissant and... More

We had a comfortable suite here with a great rooftop view - we could see the Jet D'Eau on the lake. Excellent base for exploring Geneva and good value for money. A floor standing fan was provided and this was essential in August. We would certainly return.
