From the outside the hotel doesn't seem like much (old, not well maintained), the inside is classical (but old-fashioned, you have to like that sort of thing). Employees are impolite, are not forthcoming/ helpful, big downer!! For the price it's okay I think, not too overpriced/ overrated compared to the rest of Geneva.

The rooms are small, dusty and old-fashioned The lift has room for three! guests (good to know if thgere is ever a fire!) The breakfast is adequate but the breakfast room itself is badly lit If you need an incentive to go out and do something... five minutes in your room should do the trick!

A hotel that seems to be living in another dimension or bygone times, small, cramped, low quality room for an outrageous price. Depending on your budget aim for any of the IHG brands (Intercontinental, Crowne Plaza or Holiday Inn) and you will have a 100 times better experience. Avoid at all costs.

This hotel is good value (for Geneva) and is located right in front of a tram stop, making the location very easily accessible. The highlight for us was one of the staff members, Frank, who went out of his way to help us order takeaway one night (as we got back from a hike very late) - we really appreciated... More

The location is relatively close to the Old Town and to the Lake. There is a supermarket just across the street and a number of bars and restaurants nearby. The rooms are small, but clean and comfortable. The wi-fi is awful though :( Big plus for front desk and housekeeping, everything else just above average, I think. Oh, and I... More

Small room, and definitely a little noisy because the trams pass through right below. Comfy and ok to crash out but dont expect too much. A quaint elevator that fits just one person and a bag! Did not try the food at the restaurant and noticed it hardly had parking space!

A bit pricey but then this is Geneva!!! Nice room, good shower, everything works and a comfortable bed. Staff helpful about places to visit and travel. Cant complain and if you want a nice coffee and a bite to eat for breakfast try the little café on the corner about 50 yards away. Good price.

Too expensive for a small room. Location is good but the room is very small. It is not match the price we paid. Service is ok, the recommendation for the restroom nearby is good. If the price can be more reasonable, it is good for people to stay for business trip.
