This was one of the cheapest hotels we could find in central Geneva. The location is superb but in any other city thios hotel would have been far too expensive. There was no air con in our room so it became unbearably stuffy at night. Breakfast was on the meagre side. The room was clean and staff were friendly so... More

First of all the price, was very high, in my opinion, more than in Paris, for example. Secondly, the hotel does not occupy the entire building, only the 6-th floor. It is strange, I have never seen something like that before. It is situated in the very centre, and the view is excelent. Reception only between 7 am and 9... More

With Geneva hotel capacity frequently overbooked I ended up staying in this hotel. It is certainly central. The hotel is run from what looks like two converted apartments. Rooms are super tiny, feel cheap but have a balcony. Service is friendly but quirky. Room rates at CHF140 per night including breakfast feel overpriced. The big upside is its location, 5... More

Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but I'm enjoying my stay here at the Hotel Central. Yes the rooms are quite small but I'm here to see Geneva, not live in my hotel room. It's in the best location possible, and yes there is a lot of activity here - which does mean noise at times. But the rooms have... More

The service was good, but the room was incredibly noisy. If you do not like hearing disco music while you are trying to sleep, do not choose this hotel.

Let's start with acknowledging this is a 2-star rated property. Everything written in previous reviews is pretty spot on, with the exception of an "excellent" rating I saw someone "gift" to this accommodation. The "breakfast" is the worst offering I have ever experienced where it is included with the room. Seriously, I would rather not even bother with it. They... More

I was really disappointed with this place. I had booked a room with shared bathroom, based on the average reviews read online, and the rates that seemed reasonable for such a central hotel with breakfast included. Unfortunately it didn't look like a hotel from the start, as it's located inside a private building, with reception at the 6th floor, no... More

First of all, the map google-maps provides you doesn't show the correct location of the hotel but it is indeed located very central and is pretty close to everything. The hotel itself is located on the 6th floor of a townhouse. Rooms are very small and there wasn't enough space to store all our luggage in the room. The bathroom... More

We felt we were on a scout camp...wall to wall wood, dirty everywhere. Didn´t close an eye for 3 nights as the windows were so thin, that ALL noise from the street and bars came right into the room, eventhough we were in the 3rd floor. Walls thin as paper, and all talk in neighbouring rooms could be heard. Pictures... More

No, no, no...... This is unacceptable, the worse hotel stay in my life. Terrible breakfast, one croissant and one bread, an over boiled coffee in a tray, that comes to you in the this tinny room and be aware cause they will ask the tray back in a few minutes AND YOU WILL HAVE TO OPEN THE ROOM DOOR THROUGH...
