I visited the Montbrillant in December on a work trip. The hotel is practically in the train station, not “near the station” as they say on their website, you can even hear the platform announcements from your room, not too loud though! It is very central in terms of shopping, the lake and some good restaurants, however I would not... More

The Hotel Montbrillant is conveniently located close to the train station and the city center. Shops and restaurants are just a short walk away and there is a nice restaurant on the ground floor of the hotel. It is a good choice for the people who prefer traditional hotel to modern ones but rooms are clean and have everything is... More

visite dhere with my wife and small child. stayed for only the one night. The hotel itself is nice, close to the train station, in fact right next door, which in turn is only five minutes train from the airpoort. However we felt that the servcie here was below standard. The staff were not that friendly and when we asked... More

If you ask me what is the best thing about this hotel I can tell it is location. Indeed, few steps away from central station "Gare Central" where you have starting point or intersection for any place in Geneva you may want to go. The hotel itself is nice and clean. No luxury whatsoever. So if you expect something like... More

If you are looking for a great hotel that is central in Geneva you won't go wrong. This hotel is next to the station, in fact our bedroom overlooked one of the platforms, but don't let that put you off. The double glazing must have been brilliant because we didn't hear any noise at all. Geneva is so easy to... More

Like many boutique hotels in Geneva, location is key when you're on business. Montbrillant is literally a hop away from the train station and trolley/bus stops. A free public transport card is included with your stay, enticing you to use buses and trolleys to get around town. Accommodations are somewhat sparse, but par for the course in Geneva. Ask for...

The Hotel lies next to the main station, which is very handy. We slept almost next to platform one, but didn't hear anything. So the rooms are very well isolated. The rooms self are clean. The beds are really good, and the rocky wall at the window side make it a bit cosier than other hotels. Breakfast is good, the... More

We stayed in this hotel for four nights and would definitely do so again. Pros: -literally outside of Geneva's main train station (5 min. train trip from airport--free if you take the free ticket in the luggage claim area) -super quiet rooms--our room looked out to the station platform (5th floor) and we heard absolutely nothing with the windows closed;...

The hotel is clean and quiet which is surprising for how close it is to the train station. The challenge for me was the decor which was very dated. My room could have use a refresh on the paint which was chipped and worn. However the hotel is in an excellent location and I would stay here again if I... More
