I liked staying in this hitel. The room was clean and quite suitable for the two residents. The staff was helpful. We had no problems making use of the iron & board during 5 days. Location is pretty convenient as well. 10 minutes to walk to the Cornavin train station (which is 7 min from yhe Airport), 5 min from... More

The Accor chain presents a standard hotel equipment that doesn't usually bring any surprise. Unfortunately, the location of this hotel is not so good. It is very close to a bar dealing with “strange activities”. This caused a feeling of insecurity. When we arrived at the hotel, there was a staircase of about 10 steps which made it difficult for...

Dear Guest, Thank you for having taken some time to post this comment. Always feel free to use the luggage lift located on the right side of the stairs to help you with heavy baggage.

We stayed here for one night on our way to the French Alps and it gave us an opportunity for a look around Geneva before we moved on. Its location is its big positive - just a 10-minute walk from the central train station and 5-minutes from the lake. The road on which the hotel is located is a little... More

My wife and I spent a couple of nights in this hotel in August 2014. The hotel is OK although I had to go back to reception to ask for a room with a sofa bed per our reservation. We did get a larger room with a small table and two chairs but still no sofa bed! Hotel was clean... More

I stay at this hotel a few times a year, and sometimes with family. It is a clean and tidy hotel with very friendly and helpful staff. The restaurant is good, and the bar is a nice place to relax, if not crowded

The location of this hotel is good that it about 5-10 minute walk from Geneva Cornavin Station. You can get a free 80 minute transport card in the luggage claim area (you have to get it there or else you have to pay once you have exited). You can then catch any train that goes via this station. It takes... More

While the hotel is centrally located - it is right next to the red light district. As you walk to the hotel at any time of day / night you will be solicited by characters you wouldn't like. Embarrassing and depressing - spoilt our vacation.

The hotel was ok. We had difficulties with the lift as we did not know to use our room card to make it go up and upset people as we held things up. The decor seemed tired. The under ground car park can only be used if your car is less than 1.7 m . You cannot park there with... More
