Kept awake on 3 consecutive nights by noise from machine whirring and buzzing somewhere in the middle of the hotel. I'm at a loss how anyone gets a nights sleep here. Room was shabby, towels ancient - at the least the staff were friendly.

This hotel is everything I didn't expect being a veteran of Geneva hotels : friendly with big rooms, excellent service, an excellent breakfast buffet, quiet and well located. I would definately recommend any visitors to Geneva to stay here. It is not only well priced but a welcoming, well located hotel.

Located across from the train station with lots of places to ear nearby. The rooms are old but clean and comfortable. Staff are helpful and breakfast is good enough. A big downside is the exceptionally slow wifi connection. By Geneva standards this is a bargain.

I was in Geneva on this trip for nearly two weeks. I have stayed at nearly 10 other locations in Geneva over the last 15 years so have a good feel for the town. I made a last minute reservation at a very busy time so was glad to get a decently priced hotel. I dreaded the noise, which I... More

I had just one night in Geneva, and needed an inexpensive hotel not far from the bus station, as I had an early one to catch next morning. I think that from my research Les Arcades was the best choice, and now from experience it certainly wasn't a bad one. It's located literally across the street from the rail station,... More

Had one night at this hotel. Opposite the station. Everyone very friendly and helpful.Nice to have a bath as well as a shower. Breakfast okay. Very hot and humid when I was there. Had to have windows closed as noisy (although windows sealed this out very effectively). Fan helped although room rather airless

If you want to feel Home book at this Hotel, I think this is a family business Hotel, so you feel family worm at this hotel with the staff. The hotel is in the heart of Geneva just cross the road and you are in the central train station, and just 5 minutes walk to Geneva lake and fountain. The... More

This hotel makes women feel at home. The manager has a very good taste and decorated rooms and commun spaces in a very nice way. All is good in this hotel, staff very helpful and specially the choice of fruits for breakfast very wide. The hotel should get at least 3 stars, Highly recommended:

Stayed for two Nights over the weekend. Helpful staff who on arrival offered valuable information. Breakfast was good for a two-star hotel. No Air-Condition, only portable fan. Free Wi-Fi that worked ok.
