Stayed for three nights at this hotel and found it clean and comfortable. The exterior of the building looks rather shabby but the hotel has a great location, overlooking the Rhone and with easy access to the main rail station and also trams. The room was clean and very spacious with a lovely bay window area that had great views... More

My wife and I spent 3 nights at this hotel and we must say that we were pleasantly surprised by the hotel. The location of Des Tourelles is great. Shopping street and railway station were close, many tram and bus lines going close. Room was spacey and the room we got had a view to the river, which is sunny... More

I spent 2 nights in the hotel as part of a business travel. Considering the price, it is a very proper and good hotel. The staff were very helpful. The room was clean and cozy. As the building is old, they apparently needed to build toilet in the room, which are basically a huge plastic box. Although they are clean... More

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
