We stayed in a compact room for two persons that had its own wc and shower facilities. Although the room was small, it has everything we needed, even TV, DVD player, hair dryer, a balcony, a small table with two chairs and shower cream. It was a great room for the price we pay. Certainly value for money for couples... More

We arrived in Geneva 2 days ago and had little trouble finding the place with the directions Joana gave us. The location was unbelievable, central to all. It was nice to meet in person the other personality you've been sending e-mails to for the past few weeks. Joana worked at the reception and she was really nice. She worked the... More

I was looking for a hotel in Geneva through the reviews on Trip Advisor and discovered that I might have to settle for something mediocre and expensive. Then I came accross some reviews of the Hotel Central and noticed that although the regular rooms were receiving bad reviews, the suite had some appeal. I contacted the hotel and asked if... More

I had a very nice experience. What I liked most was the website was accurate. The hotel tells you what to expect and they deliver. They are not a 5-star luxury experience and do not try to be. They allowed an early check-in. A nice and relaxed experience at the front desk. You can tell that they really care about... More

I had an incredibly hard time finding any hotel that accepted 4 people (2 adults, 2 kids) in Geneva and was thrilled when I discovered Hotel Central. Didn't care what it was like since it took all 4 of us and it meant we didn't have to book 2 rooms. It was also reasonably priced and the guidebooks all called... More

Do not choose a compact room because it's really very small - only a bed and a small table fit into it. Furthermore, you can get into the room only through the bathroom and the toilet which is quite strange. The room was not clean enough either. The breakfast was not plentiful but OK, and another problem in connection with... More

Just returned from a few days at Hotel Central, appropriately located in centre of Geneva. Shared apartment #43 with friends, all were impressed with the quality and cleanliness of the accommodation, as well as the (7th floor) view. Very kind people, close to lake and old part of town, wonderful experience, and included breakfast delivered to room at desired time... More

Purpose of stay was a short stopover while on a roadtrip. First thing to note is I would definitely NOT recommend staying here if you are bringing a car. There is no Hotel parking and it's impossible to find any street parking leaving only the public carparks which are very expensive (you could actually use the money to stay at... More

I've just remembered this place where we had a short break for our wedding anniversary a few years ago. We spent a long time hauling luggage about trying to find the hotel, and once checked in we couldn't believe the size of our room. It was minute! I've never stayed in a hotel before where you actually have to go... More

The Hotel Central is on the two top floors of a bulding at Rue de la Rotisserie. All taxi drivers know where it is and there is a small sign outside the building. It's not hard to find. Rooms are small, showers are small, but everything is very clean. You have to take your breakfast in your room, but we... More
