Half way through a two week bike trip we stopped at Geneva. Having tried 5 different places Montana was the only one with a room. As it was raining and we were tired we decided to take the room. The price was the most we paid during our entire trip....with no breakfast included. Good bits - both receptionists we encountered... More

The Montana Hotel is barely few steps away from the Rue de Alps road exit of the Gare Cornavin central Geneva Station main which is 10 min away from airport (with free travel slip from airport and travel card from hotels). Rooms are bit smaller but clean. Its a no frills hotel. Reception guys are friendly and you can ask... More

We love it -- though not at first sight... Yes it needs renovation, furniture and TV are outdated, air condition would be wellcome, but the bed is good, the linen is clean and of good quality, bathoom and shower works well, an open window and fan worked perfectly for the night, and the staff is SO nice and helpful that...

It's not too expensive for Geneva, for sure needs renovation but the staff is so nice and helpful that it doesn't matter. They've free wifi in the lobby and a big safe in the room I could leave my laptop in it! For sure I'll go back there if I have the chance to. I recommend!

We booked in this hotel through Geneva Tourism Office and were totally disappointed. The room is very worn out and run down, also quite hot & stuffy even with a fan. Also noises coming up (we stayed at fourth floor) from the public areas downstairs. The only good point is that it's located very close to the train station. Staff... More

The Montana is near the railroad station and is (for Geneva, one of Europe's most overpriced cities) a reasonably-priced hotel. My room was rather large by local standards, but was worn and run down. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is good. It is good for a short stay.

Very central location, right near the station, although that comes with lots of noise at night time. Easy to get around from here though. Good breakfasts, very friendly staff happy to help out. Rooms are small-ish, but then so are most hotel rooms in Geneva!

Somewhere to stay with mates when visiting the motorshow. Staff friendly, rooms run down, as is the whole place, breakfast pretty good. Not the best area but plenty of restaurants close by. Good for central Geneva. Not somewhere to take a partner!!
