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.

Very dirty room, towels, floor walls everything is just DIRTY! Bed was horrible never ever again! It is in good location but if you want to sleep in fresh bed and take good shower this place is not for you!

I stayed here for one night with some friends. The hotel is very close to the lake and located in the city center. The staff was friendly and they didn't calculate a surcharge for one person more (we had a reservation for a three bed studio and it was no problem that we were one person more than planned, no...

You can't beat the location -- right in the old city, a block from Lake Geneva, lots of nice restaurants and (pricey) shopping nearby. But the service basically stinks -- and, speaking of stinking, our room reeked of cigar smoke. One night in the room, even with our bags shut tight and the windows wide open, and all of our... More

A safe and pleasant stay every tie where value is the name of the game. Not the Ritz and in need up of grading but in this city of high priced hotels with not much respect for customers - this is the place. Ask for a room at the back and remember there are three supermarkets close by to stock... More

Staying in Geneve requires romantic walking along the sides of its wonderful lake, where the prices of stay jumps. Therefore this amazing residence gives a lot of flexibilities due to its strategic location which is close to the lake & jet d'eau. In addition the central shopping zones. This residence is offering free wifi, their breakfast is not recommended, there's... More
