After my previous experience at another hotel in Geneva I was so glad to see that the pictures correspond to the reality: it is so cozy, neat, clean, and nice. Very nice service, cozy rooms (small but nice), amazing hall in each floor - with a library, where you can sit down and calmly pass hours reading. Free wi-fi. Close... More

Our hotel room was very small and the toilet/shower was the size as in a cabin on a cruise ship. The air in the room was real stuffy as it has no air condition. I can only imagine how warm/stuffy it could be during the summer. The room was very clean and nicely decorated, the beds were ok. Breakfast was... More

We stayed here because a friend recommended it to us. It is a very simple but nice hotel. The room was small and the bathroom was tiny. There was no AC. A nice breakfast was included and the service was friendly. If you want a reasonably priced hotel this is a good option. You can walk to the old part... More

When I travel, I look for 'cheap and cheerful' local places with good location, good price and local character. Hotel de Geneve has all three. It's in a thoroughly boring neighborhood that is nonetheless a quick walk from Lake Geneva and the Old Town, as well as about 3 minutes from the airport bus and 5-10 minutes from the main... More

The hotel is old but it gives you a somewhat homey feeling. Booked a triple room with 3 single beds so our room is quite bigger. It had a balcony and we had a street view so it was kinda noisy. The room was clean (wooden floors) and the bathroom was so tiny! The room has old style furniture which... More

Friendly staff, clean room however eating area is a bot small and so breakfast was tight with all the guests competing for the food. Also the breakfast wasn't that good, run of the mill continental. Also, no decent English language channel on the television. It is in a good central location though with easy access to all amenities.

We only stayed one night here but the would definitely return as it was really convenient to visit the city everything was walking distance. Have to mention AB the receptionist for his advice which was helpful.

In a city where you can spend a fortune if you walk into the wrong pizza shop, this hotel was good for the price paid. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and the place has a rather odd charm to it. For example the hallway has a random mix of books ranging from complete operas to business course manuals. The... More

A lovely little hotel, not too far from the centre of Geneva and right near a few tram stops which makes it easy to get to or to travel around Geneva. The service was great, there was free WiFi and I’d forgotten my plug adapter and they gave me one for the duration of my stay. Dining room was small,... More

A small hotel, only five minutes walk from Geneva Railway Station, in a quiet road, just off the main street. Rooms are small as are bathrooms and shower but as you would only be there at night, that doesn't really matter. Good choice of food for a continental breakfast, though again, the breakfast area is slightly cramped. However, the staff... More
