Small and very noisy room, unfriendly staff: when I asked a cappuccino for breakfast the waiter complained with my request, I do not know why. For my standards this is absolutely not a 4 stars hotel, it is a 2 stars in the best case. The only good thing was that I had to stay 1 night, if I has... More

The check in was quick and efficient. Staff showed us where to park the car. Room is a bit on the small size but we had a crib in there so took some space. Although next to the station, the noise from trains was minimal. Great location, wifi worked well, didn't have food there so no comments. Nice they offered... More

The hotel is in a great location just blocks from Lake Geneva and city center. Very walkable to the lake and restaurants. Room was clean and good size. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Hotel also has a bar and restaurant with outside seating. We enjoyed our 3 day stay and would come back if in Geneva.

What a lovely little hotel right next to the station - no noise! The staff were all very attentive and friendly. Rooms were bigger than expected for a city, big beds nice and clean rooms even the single rooms were a good size. Great location for travellers and exploring the town old and new.

Room was reasonably spacious and came with a kitchenette, as well as a full bathroom. Location is unbeatable - very central, right next to the train station, and easy walking to a lot of Geneva attractions. Staff were fine and will kindly bring the ironing board to your room if you request it. The attached restaurant is quite good too.... More

This hotel is in a great location and the staff were very helpful and friendly. Our room was classy and comfortable. Our stay here was quick, but we would have loved to stay longer. We recommend this place to other travelers.

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!

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
