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.

Let's face it, good mid-priced hotels in Geneva are hard to find. You can pay a small fortune to stay on the lake, or you can end up in a flea pit. The Diplomate is neither on the lake, nor a flea pit. The rooms are small and do need updating, but the welcome was warm. It does help if... More

Avoid if you can! Room was very noisy as it was next to the tram stop. It was also very hot and the ac was ineffective. Shower attachment would not stay in place and sprayed water all over the bathroom. Breakfast was supposedly from 7 but at 7.15 there was still no coffee and very little choice. Had I known... More

I was disappointed with this hotel. I usually find all BW hotels reasonably good. Not this one. The only good thing about it is the location. The category of this hotel does not fit the facilities. Rooms are definitely not those for a 4 star hotel. Spend your money better in another place.
