This place is very well located (near the main train station) but very bad service. The staff was not friendly and the food at the restaurant is not good. My colleague even found flies in her drink... The only good this is that the cuisine is open non-stop. But avoid going there as it is a tourist trap!

Courteous, helpful personnel: Yes, here is a street map, and here is a map of the tram system. Clerks gladly offer advice on "take this tram line in this direction and get off at this stop to go to the museum you want to see."

The brasserie in the hotel Le Montbrillant is beautiful and offers outside seating next to the Cornsvin railway station. The have a nice bar to have a drink and offer typical French brasserie food. A good place to have a bite before catching the train.

I was at a conference in Geneva at CERN. I also visited the accelerator – great! I needed a nice hotel close to the city center and an easy access to buses and trams. Montbrillant is situated just at the railway station, but with no noise from the trains! The hotel was good with a nice breakfast – no scrambled... More

When I arrived I was very worried as it was right next to the main station, however once in the rooms my worries went away. The soundproofing was amazing. Our room overlooked the platform but I never heard a noise from outside the room. The food for both breakfast and dinner was very good and well priced. The only thing... More

I got a very good price on an online web site for two nights, and was very pleasantly surprised. Despite being next to the train station, the rooms are quite well soundproofed. I could hear a murmur of the PA announcing trains at times, but it was quite faint. My room was the nicest I've had in my 4 visits... More

I stayed here a few weeks ago while on a business trip. The location was perfect for me as I used public transportation during my stay. The staff was nice and the restaurant was good. The place could use a little updating but the room was clean and the bed was comfortable. It was overall a great place to stay.

We were staying in Geneva for the Motor Show. We normally stay a couple of nights and central Geneva is just one stop on the train from the exhibition halls (Palexpo right next to the airport). It's just a short walk from the hotel to several good restaurants. Very well placed for a day trip along Lake Geneva by train.... More

This hotel is advertised as a 4 star hotel, but the services are not that good. We stayed for 3 nights and during this time our room was never cleaned - I don't expect to have the towels changed every day, but I expect at least to pick up the garbage and check if the floors need vacuum.. We've stayed... More

Awesome location! Very clean! Staff was super friendly! I rented a single room for a really long layover. Its 5 mins away from the airport, literally the next stop on the train. It is in the downtown area so within 2 minutes I was in front of Lake Geneva, surrounded by shops, local tours- you name it! I would stay... More
