Booked this place as a last minute option, because my original booking in another hotel was sold to someone else, as the city was full during the car show. Was very lucky to find a room in the center for a reasonable price. The room (603) was very clean and well equipped, with a fantastic terrace. Simple but satisfying breakfast.... More

Nice small hotel situated in the heart of Geneva. Closely located to the Train and bus stations, a wide sections of bars and restaurants. Avoid rooms facing main street as they are noisy. Rooms a bit small. Very friendly staff

This hotel is kind of dated and could use remodeling, but it is very clean and very convenient to the train station, the lake, restaurants and the bus station where so many tours leave from. I booked a tour to Mount Blanc and set my alarm wrong. I woke up 15 minutes before the bus was due to leave, but... More

Des Alpes is located approx. 5 minutes walk from the Central Railway station and tram/bus stops. In Geneva, hotel guests are provided a card enabling them to travel on public transport for free. A tram drive from Central Station to for example the United Nations main building is 15 minutes and a walk from the hotel to the old town... More

Me and my girlfriend just came back and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. As a place to rest, good sized room and location was very good. Location was brilliant in regards to the lake and station too. Weather was fantastic too thankfully. Only downside was breakfast and some of the side streets were unsavoury. There was some noise but its a city,... More

But anyone else would be best advised to steer clear. Which is a shame as the reception staff are very friendly and efficient and it is in a great location, half way between the rail station and the lake and close to lots of shops and restaurants. Unfortunately, the sound insulation between the rooms is non-existent and opening the windows... More

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
