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.

We stayed here for 1 night either side of our skiing holiday just over the border in France. We got a taxi from the train station as it was late, and the driver had no trouble finding it- I had made lots of notes from trip advisor about nearby shops, road names, what the outside looked like etc, just incase,...

Well better late than never as far as reviewing a hotel. My wife and I stayed at this hotel last year and were very pleased with the location. It was difficult to find as not many people in the area know the street address. It is an easy walking distance to the lake and to the old city. Our only... More

Hotel Central is conveniently located in the heart of Geneva. It's a cozy stay for any type of traveler, but don't expect anything more than just a place to rest your head and a bit of breakfast (which wasn't much and almost the same everyday). The staff... we found were half-helpful. The lady who checked us in was nice, but... More

Hotel Central lives up to its name, as the location can't be better for centrality. The top floor rooms provide a quiet place to stay in the bustling city and, though not luxurious, are perfectly adequate to use as a base. The rooms need modernising, but are fine if you aren’t going to be indoors all day. The breakfast, delivered... More

Comfortable room (we had standard room) with excellent bathroom. Hotel is in a good location close to the old town and main shopping precinct. Friendly and helpful staff. Stayed one night because it was a quick trip. Would have liked to stay longer.

We stayed in the Central in February 2009. We booked a compact room which yes is small but is functional. The rooms are a little dated but are clean, tidy and comfortable and the staff are very helpful and friendly.

Different rooms available to cater for different budgets. Excellent location: near bus stop, tram stop & shops, including Migros outlet. Very clean and well-maintained. Owners very friendly. Not your usual hotel though -- very small lobby, tiny lift (elevator), but breakfast is served in your room.

Located in the heart of the old city, within easy walking distance (10 mins) of the train station for getting to/from the airport. The reception is open late, and the staff were very friendly and helpful when we arrived about 22h00. The room was clean, warm and recently refurbished. The room price was very reasonable, excellent value for money.
