Very clean, tidy hotel. Location is perfect!! Right opposite train station Corvanin, 10 min walk to anywhere really! I stayed in a single room which would still accommodate two people. Bed is comfi. Wanted to say that hotel is good for a short stay, but well, it is great for a longer term too. Highly recommend.

I picked this hotel because of the price (although still expensive , it seemed better value than most) and it's proximity to the train station. The hotel is directly opposite the clock in the middle of the station fascia . The entrance looks like you are entering an office block as reception is on second floor but once you enter... More

The hotel is located across the train station. You have to park on level 3 at the parking station and the hotel gives you a 50% coupon to pay the parking. The hotel is meticulous and the room was very clean and quiet,. The staff was very nice and the buffet breakfast had a good variety for everyone.

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
