Small family run hotel, not luxury, basic services, but in a great location. The hotel is not easy to find as its part of a shared block along with a dentist and a dance school etc. The hotel shares a common access. Although the reception is located on this floor you have to go up some steep steps. The guest... More

My partner and I stayed at Des Tourelles for a couple of nights and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The hotel is in an excellent location and there's great views of Le Rhone, especially when the restaurants and bars are lit up at night. The only issue we had was that our room was quite noisy during the night due... More

We came here on our honeymoon a year ago and really enjoyed the hotel. It wasn't so cheap but all of Geneva is really expensive. Anyway, comparing to other hotels in Geneva it was a great deal. The room is designed very nice with a nice view to the river. We also enjoyed the breakfast and loved the location. We... More

Cordial and efficient staff, giving all the information needed and solving all the questions. Room was clean and comfortable, with a beautiful terrace over the Rhône. Good breakfast and wifi. The wooden floor squeaks a little, but it is expected as the building is old.

Easy walk from the main train station, our 1 night stay in a double room was extremely good. Our room was quite large, old fashioned styling but well kept and clean, along with the bathroom. We had a gorgeous river view, was great location to walk around. Since we had very early train in morning, the reception staff were very... More

If you are on a budget, don't come to Geneva! However, sometimes we are forced to. Hotel des Tourelles is a good option. Very reasonably priced, by Geneva standards. The least expensive rooms have the shower and toilet in the hall, other have them in the room. Breakfast is nothing to brag about, but adequate. Everything is spotlessly clean and... More

The thing I like about such hotels is that it make me feel a resident of the city. The hotel rooms are mixed with the residents ones'. The location is good - 10 min walk from the central station (1 tram stop) and from the lake. Staff polite and helpful. The room was with nice river view, quite big and... More

The Staff is always very friendly and helpful. It is in a quiet area but close to the train station and the Paquis. Some rooms have a nice view on the river. The rooms are charming and simple. Hardwood floor, good bathroom (and books on every floor).

Excellent, central hotel with very helpful and friendly staff. Room overlooked the river/lake and was spotlessly clean. Good facilities, including free wi-fi. Very close to all transport links. Well recommended.

I chose Hotel des Tourelles based mainly on the beautiful exterior (and Trip Adviser of course). It is a classic building set in a perfect location: about 8 minutes walk from the main station (just turn right out of the station and follow Boulevard James Fazy to the river) and just 5 minutes walk along the river to the Bel...
