The hotel is across from the train station and close to the lake so it's a convenient location. It's very clean with a modern feel to it. The price was good for Geneva (not a cheap city) and they gave us a free public transport card - although I gather that most hotels provide this. The staff were friendly. There... More

Stayed 2 nights over the weekend (6, 7 September). Pro's: Hotel is opposite the train station and thus in a great location to go and explore Geneva using the travel card issued by reception. Rooms are a good size and the bed was comfortable Staff were all very friendly and could speak English well. Breakfast was good (cold cut meat,... More

Location of this hotel was extremely convenient and quite easy to locate. I stayed in Geneva for 3 nights and the weather was perfect. Unfortunately, the rooms do not have air conditioning but there are fans. I also got a room facing the street so if you are not used to the loud street noises, this hotel is not for... More

The hotel is just opposite to the major rail station (within 5-minute walk). The hotel is inside a commercial builidng (next to H&M) and we had to take a lift to the reception. Staff were friendly and offered us the travel cards to take public transport for free in the city. We liked the balcony although the room was not... More

Easiest location if you are arriving or departing by train. After a stay at the Best Western Strasbourg 2 years ago, I slightly prefer this place. But is it really a hotel ? We felt that we were entering a commercial building, catching an elevator to level 2 , where there was a reception desk, the breakfast room behind it... More

Granted, Geneva is an expensive place, especially considering the exchange rate with the US dollar. However, at $200/night, I was hoping for a little more. The Les Arcades is small, clean, conveniently located and comfortable. However, it was hot, noisy and wasn't worth the price. I think there a better choices

First of all it is close to the train station which is nice. The beds don't have sheets it was just a duvee with no pillow case. The hotel is extremely hard to find as it is not well advertised from the street. In the walkway there are tons of immigrants waiting to send money to their home countries and... More

We chose this for business trip on price and location. But it exceeded expectations, well located, good service and very friendly staff. It is at a transport hub - station and buses/trams - and plenty of restaurants of all types within walking distance. I would go back anytime.

I had to go to Geneva for a week for UN meetings and booked this hotel because I was looking for one around the main railway station, which I know is a very convenient location, and I got a fairly good price (US$137 per night), at least for Geneva. There are plenty of hotels in that area, as well as... More

Le Arcades has a good location near the train station and overall is a good value for a short stay in Geneva. Reading the directions to find it are essential, as it is on a floor of a commercial building. The entrance is next to an H&M clothing store. Reception was cool but not unfriendly. We were given Geneva Transport... More
