Having stayed at a few hotels in and around the center of Geneva, I was pleasantly surprised by Hotel des Tourelles. When I arrived after an overnight flight, they checked me in before the designated time since they had a room ready. As others have said, the location is very convenient, rooms are nicely decorated and have good views. The... More

The location of Des Tourelles is great. Shopping street and railway station are close, many tram and bus lines going close. Rooms are spacy and some of them having view to the river, which is sunny and beautiful. Room was a bit noisy beause of traffic. Bathroom is very small, but luckily shower really works. Staff was very friendly, breakfast... More

I liked this hotel a lot! First of all, it's located right to the Rhonne river and a lot of amazing sites are in walking distance. Second, it was clean and the room had a nice feel to it. The staff was friendly (their English isn’t exactly excellent, but it’s good enough - but this is probably just me being... More

The upside to staying in this two star hotel is the location and price. Located right on the river, the hotel is perfectly placed for an easy walk to the Gare and a visit to "old town". The downsides is unfortunately it is right beside a very busy bridge and the hotel has no A/C. So you can open you... More

The hotel is in an old building, but in good conditions. Room was spacious and comfortable, with beautiful view to the river. Personal nice and helpful. Location is good. Visiting Geneva you get in the hotel a special free ticket for public transportation, which we used a lot. Exiting the hotel you cross the bridge and you have there the... More

The place and the staff are very pleasant. Rooms and furnishing are decent; all in all for the price it’s a good place. If you want a higher class level and of course pay for it the Mandarin Oriental is just a bit away.

Despite mixed reviews, I chose this hotel for a 3 night business stay and was positively surprised. View of the Rhône spectacular. Easily walkable from Cornavin. It's not luxury, but exactly what you need for a quick stay and value for money in Geneva terms. WiFi good. Breakfast simple but good. Compared to other hotels right next to Cornavin, this... More

I was deeply disappointed by this hotel. I was in Geneva on business but wanted to stay somewhere (relatively) affordable. I was attending a course in the old town and the hotel where the course was being held was £270/night which was well beyond what I was willing to pay,and this hotel, having reviewed the reviews here, seemed alright. It... More

I had one last night of my European vacation and needed a place to stay in Geneva that didn't break the bank. Hotel des Tourelles was the perfect place. Only a 10 minute walk from the main train station which got me directly to the airport. A pretty location with a view of the river. A large room, good WiFi,... More

I stayed here for one night waiting for a friend to arrive to be transferred to Mandarin Oriental. So despite being right next to each other, the gap between the two hotels standing next to each other is immense and it is clearly reflected in the price. For CHF 130.00 for a single room with small breakfast included, it is... More
