The Montbrillant is located very close by the Geneva train station, on the 'back side' i.e. away from the lakeside. That means the views are not picturesque, but the prices are a lot more reasonable. In any case, it's a five-minute walk downhill to the lake, if you want to go and visit the more tourist side of Geneva's attractions.... More

This is not a 4 star hotel - the room was really tiny, the whole place has the charm of a youth hostel. The TV supposedly has 60+ channels - unfortunately almost all of the German channels do not work (and when I asked them to fix it, nothing happened). The location is convenient but that's about it. Next time... More

I have always found Switzerland breath taking. The scenery and then the hit to the pocket. Breakfast at this hotel is a prime example; outrageous in its cost; but made worse by the lack of substance. When I asked the over worked waiter if more food was forthcoming I was told it was all out. My Husband got the last... More

Terrible service at reception. George, the person at reception, did not find our reservation in the system but more importantly did not care to make any effort to find it. And pretended that it was not his problem. He however eventually "found" the reservation after some "pushing around" to just look a tiny bit more.

This is an excellently located hotel if you are traveling to Geneva for business and needing to use the train or local stores. You can see the hotel from the train station (but I have never been bothered by noise from there during a stay). I've eaten breakfast in the restaurant in the past and liked it. The rooms are...

My room on first floor overlooking back of station was warm, comfortable and squeaky clean with free soft drinks in the fridge. Wifi worked well in room and restaurant too. I found staff to be friendly and polite if not... More

Great location, central to train, bus and right in the heart of Geneva. Service was impeccable and very attentive. This beautiful hotel is situated at the back of Geneva's rail station where the planning of the cities infrastructure encumbers travel facilities in such a way which is non-intrusive to a weary traveller. With air conditioning, Internet services and double glazing... More

I didn't realise that single rooms still existed outside of Pod hotels, but this proved me wrong!! This is extremely convenient for the station - literally right outside. Despite this, I didn't hear trains at all. Check-in efficient and friendly. Room was tiny, but comfy bed, free wifi and adequate shower, so for a 1 night trip all that's needed.... More
