This is a basic hotel, which is very clean, with very helpful, friendly staff. Its location is excellent, just around the corner is Gare Cornavin and every tram, bus and train from around the city seems to stop here. The rooms were too hot for me, making sleep almost impossible and the room doors bang loudly when being shut, so... More

Clean, but very basic. For some strange reason they placed the smoking rooms in the quieter back of the hotel, the non-smoking rooms along the noisy street. An electric fan in the room drowned out some of the noise, but bring earplugs. Toiletries in bathroom. Can get breakfast 7-10am included in your room rate. Pillows were absolutely worthless, deflated on... More

Good location, staff very helpful at the reception. Rooms are small (typical european size). it seems there is no control for heating and hence need to regulate temp by opening the window. if you get a street facing room, it can be noisy. wi-fi is average, seems to disconnect for no reason. lots of restaurants nearby, also close to railway...

Booked this hotel because I had no other choice for 1 night since it was next to the train station and I was taking the train early next morning. To be straightforward this is probably the worst quality price hotel I have ever been to in my life, 180 francs for a piece of garbage. It looked like a hotel... More

I stayed in hotel Des Alpes in april 2013. Hotel situated on Rue des Alpes in 5 minutes by walk from Geneva railway station. It is almost city centre so all the main streets and attractions are in 5-15 minutes by walk. Very suitable hotel for city trips. Rooms are mall but good (just like the whole hotel).

Stayed in this hotel for a work trip. Rooms are simple - comfortable bed, clean bathroom, shower is not very good as its hand held, small TV with very few channels, so not very good for those that intend to stay in their room. Breakfast is good - nice range of fruits, breads, croissants, cheese, meats and cereals. Staff were... More
