This hotel is great for the budget conscious. We had a double room with ensuite with separate toilet on the 3rd floor that overlooked Rue de Rossi. The size of the room was adequate with a ceiling fan and mini bar, the double glazed opening windows were essential for night quiet. The streetscape was always interesting day or night if... More

Stayed 3 nights for work, pre-booked through travel agency so not possible to change. Unfortunately.... The hotel is located in the middle of the red light district, with a lot of very dodgy characters around at all times. The room was very small and had a smell of humidity (old carpet smell), with tiny bathroom to complement it. Waking up... More

The hotel is in local red lights district, not close to it. The walls are thin, rooms smell, they could do with better cleaning and airing. Bathrooms seem to be from the seventies and they are mouldy. See picture. I did not dare to try breakfast. Definitely not recommended. Wifi worked well.

Good place to lay your head at night. What you expect from a 3 star hotel. Hotel is a bit dated, but other than that all is good. Friendly staff, clean room, comfortable bed. The breakfast was surprisingly very good. Would stay again next time in Geneva.

The best option regarding cost-quality. The rooms are clean and confortable. The staff doesn't make a big effort to speak english. I belive that it had something to do with us being portuguese. We're the working class in Switzerland. They have continental breakfast with considerable choice. Close to the red district streets but we almost didn't noticed it.

Staff were very friendly, helpful and spoke english well. The room was basic, no fridge or A/C but it was clean and nice enough for the price. When we visited it was quite hot and the room was very hot, and was a bit noisy with the window open but fine with it closed. The free breakfast is surprisingly good,... More

Affordable was the key for this hotel which is in the heart of the red light district, not really our cup of tea but was fine and we felt safe walking around at night. It was close to everything and the car park is next door so that was handy for us. Please ask for a discount in the parking... More

Surrounding hoods with sex shops and sex professionals may give you the impression that the Hotel Admiral belongs into the scene but it's not. And the surroundings with sex shops and -professionals is very nice area where it felt safe and people were friendly. The Admiral itself means a very good service with free tickets for public transportation (also to... More

Booked via work travel agency or I would have walked out. Next door to a sex shop in crummy area. no one on reception when I arrived. No working AC...tiny shower-only bathroom and wi Fi not working. When I asked to cancel I was told there was nothing they could do because our travel agency had booked. Really poor

I would recommend this hotel as apart from being at a walkable distance from the Geneva Station, the staff was really co-operative and helpful. I had a great stay at this hotel. In case if I plan to go back to Geneva will surely go for the same hotel again.
