Situated at the Old Town Area, this is a lovely small hotel with rooms set in a cabin type. It is at the other side of the Lake Geneva quite a bit of work to the central offices. Room was clean same as the toilet. The hotel was not so silent at night due to its location. The elevator was... More

The hotel is conveniently located about 1 1/2 blocks from the main train station. I picked up a free train ticket at the airport and then, walked to the hotel from the station. The staff were all pleasant and helpful. The hotel is small and my room was small. I had a single room with a single bed up against... More

Very helpful staff, small but clean room and nice breakfast. Under normal circumstances it might be pricey for what is on offer but Geneva is somehow an exception. Very close to public transport to UN and the airport, easy reach to downtown and restaurants, in front of major department store but still quite. Recommended

This hotel is close to the city centre (central station) and has large rooms, good bed and... an extra chair in the room to relax. Staff is friendly and supportive. Good option when you want to stay in Geneva.

Located right near the main train station and tram hub, across the road from the biggest central shopping centre, and a 5 min walk to the lake, this hotel is ideally placed to explore all of Geneve! Hotel itself is beautiful, big spacious rooms, wonderful beds and lovely and quiet. Would definitely stY again, and recommend to all!

Our stay here was very pleasant. On welcome & throughout our stay the staff, especially Philippe,were kind, helpful & knowledgable. We were given public transport ticket, though this is pretty common in the city's hotels. Our room had all we needed plus a walk in wardrobe, safe, large bathroom, mirrors, TV, desk & chair. The location is great walking distance... More

This is a small hotel within walking distance of downtown shopping, much of which is very high end. Plus every Swiss watch company you ever heard plus 12 more. Good walking or biking area (the only area on my trip with level sidewalks). A nice clean and fairly quiet comfortable hotel close to the Rhone river. And they still have... More

This hotel is very good for business trip. The rooms are small, but clean and well equiped. The location is perfect, just few stpes from the railway station or bus stop. Despite the fact that the hotel is located oposite the very busy department store Manora, the rooms are quiet.

This hotel situated 5 mins to the railway station, so transfering to and from the airport was very quick and easy. The lake is only a short walk and the hotel provides you with a free pass to use the public transport (inc the wee yellow ferries). We had a rear facing room and the view from the window was...

I stayed in a 1-person room over 4 nights. The room was small, but comfortable enough. Very clean - I am allergic to dust and I was truly impressed with cleaning staff. I also had paid for breakfast, I liked that is was served up until 10 a.m. (10:30 on weekends), so I didnt have to get up too early... More
