Having stayed here for three nights every spring since 2009, we know and love this friendly, centrally located set of apartments. The (almost) lakeside location and proximity to all the sites and facilities - at a great price is draw......but oh dear ...is it time for some small renovation ? Curtains, cutlery and with a lick of paint - so... More

The residence is right in the city centre, minutes away from the lake shore. I had a large 2-room appartment on the last floor. Beds were comfortable and the place was quiet. Staff was friendly. Definitely a place where I would go back, with a very good value for what you pay for (in Geneva with similar rates you usually... More

This hotel is in a very good central location, about fifteen minute walk to the station and near plenty of trams and buses and the lake. Staying here made it easy to keep the cost of a stay in Geneva reasonable. Furnishings were old and a bit tatty, especially the kitchen, but it was good enough to have breakfast there... More

The hotel is located in a nice, calm area with many nice restaurants and shops, two minutes walking from the lake. I agree with precedent posts, that the rooms need renovation, but at this price, which is very low in Geneva, you cannot ask for higher standard. The hotel also provides a public transport card for free. I would recommend... More

Upon arrival, we found large amounts of hair on the beds, floor, bathtub (which had been stuck to the sides for some time), back of the door, etc. We reported the problem and they re-cleaned the room the next day, but it still wasn't clean, to the point where you didn't want to touch anything! I'm afraid the cleaning staff... More

Very good location, not bad room, friendly staff. Free tickets fro public transport, easy access to airport. Beds are not really great, but neither terrible. Think you can't get any better in Geneva for the same price.
