Although rated 4star, this is 3stars at the best. To me, it's only redeeming quality is its 50m location from the railway station, ideal for that early morning flight at Geneva airport, which is a short 7min ride from the train station. The hotel will give a free train ticket too. Skip the optional breakfast-it's just not worth it. Tip:... More

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for one night, and the stay was a disappointment. The hotel is a four star, but I would say that three star is absolutely maximum. What is good with the hotel ? The location (next to the railway station) and a friendly and effective reception. The following is not so good: 1)... More

I really like this place, but it shares the besetting sin of other hotels in this season where management decline to activate the air conditioning despite exceptionally warm weather. Other than that, it is right next to the train station but still quiet enough to get decent rest, and has an excellent restaurant in the hotel (wine list is really... More

The hotel was clean and tidy - some abstract art dotted around the place. Reasonably priced (for geneva!) but just the wrong side of the train station - it's very convenient but to cross through or under the trains was not pleasant especially by night. Just like any station. Overall a decent hotel - don't expect the ritz.

This is a great place if you want to avoid corporate hotels without losing quality. Immediately behind Geneva's station from where you can go anywhere in the city, country and beyond, this is friendly, efficient and very pleasant. And although my room overlooked the railway, it was very quiet. There's a nice bistro/coffee shop/pizzaria, too. Simple but good food and... More

I stayed at the Montbrillant during a business trip to Geneva. It was definitely one of the better hotels I've stayed in Geneva at that price range (~ 200 CHF / night). The hotel is located just next to the train station and therefore very central. The reception is nice, the staff friendly and helpful and they have a bistrot... More

Very old dated decoration. Tiny room, bed and bathroom. Window directly on the main station platforms with the benefit of hearing not only the trains but also all the announcements. Will never go back.

I walked in this Hotel without prior booking just to have a place to sleep for one night before continuing my journey. I took a single room and it happened to be very small considering the price. Still I thought I was lucky to get an accomodation that fast because I knew I was taking chances coming to Geneva at... More

Hotel prices in Geneva are ridiculous. In my experience they are mostly of a high standard but very overpriced. I paid about £155 for 1 nights stay here B&B and that seems like a lot of money for what I got. It's not a bad hotel but it's fairly tired and would benefit from some modernisation. Equipment and decor is... More

This hotel locate just 20 steps from the main train station.
