Just next to Geneva's train station, no better way to rest after a long flight or journey by train (Free train ride from Geneva airport) or especially if you have day-trips away from Geneva. Walking distance everywhere. I was there when there was jazz festival at a park next to the hotel. I stayed at the apartment facing the train... More

If you have to stay for a week in Geneva I highly recommend this hotel, very creative ambience, excellent restaurants and just across the Cornavin train station. It is surrounded by good eating places with multiple options and at walking distace of the Lake and the Old city. All means of transportation are crossing by.

We were waiting at Geneva station for a train for a few hours with our luggage and wanted lunch. Nothing suitable in the station but the hotel is right by it, and for 21 Swiss francs each we had a very acceptable starter and main course of the day, sitting outside. Given what everyone says about Switzerland being very expensive... More

The hotel is located right into the train statio (Cornavin). It have regular hotel rooms and apartments. I stayed in the apartments side and in the fifth floor facing the station. The glass are sound proof and the view is very nice ( you can view the Mon Blan and the Jet d'au right from your window. The room is... More

I stayed here for two weeks for work. Lovely location for a first time traveler to Geneva, since its close to the airport and to the major bus and tram stops. The staff were super helpful, trying to understand my African accented English, whilst they are french speakers was nothing short of a labour of love. The accommodation was clean,... More

I've booked this hotel for one night while traveling with friends. The hotel proclaims itself a four-star hotel, and has prices to match, but the only thing that lends credence to the claim the a safe deposit box in the room. Everything else is barely two-star. The standard rooms are tiny and have one uncomfortable single bed, and a small... More

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.
