The clean room, cosy breakfast and friendly hosts make this a great place to stay, especially if working in downtown Geneva. Close to trams, bus and a walk from great dining and shopping Carouge. In an expensive city, Hotel Carmen is great value.

I stay at the Carmen virtually every time I visit Geneva. You could end up with an enormous room, or quite a small one. Sometimes there'll be a separate bathroom; other times there will be a strange little pod attached to the room. The decor is basic; the beds firm; the towels a little worn. But the welcome is always... More

When arriving in Geneve I discovered Carmen Hotel by chance. It is a small hotel, but with the friendly, helpfull and trustfull staff. The rooms are big, comfortable and very clean. Besides, the hotel is very well located, next to everything a tourist and a student needs to. Ah, the last, but not the least, it is cheap, considering the... More

Basic but clean room, good breakfast, friendly staff, Free Wifi.What else can you ask for at the budget price? Street noise from near by Bars till late at night is... More

I have to travel very often to Geneva and I stayed in plenty hotels in that city. Still, I always try booking a room in Hotel Carmen, due to its excellent emplacement, friendly staff and very important, priced paid. In general, for hotels less than 160 CHF/day you can have no pretention, almost all being very expensive and with rooms... More

I have stayed in this hotel many many times since 2008 and have seen the remarkable improvement in the facilities. The owners and staff are wonderful - friendly, polite and helpful. It has wifi connection for the last few years and the speed is good. The rooms are neat and clean. The breakfast is basic. The hotel is in a... More

Polite staff; good central location near the university and the old city. A 20-minute walk to the principal museums and the cathedral of the city, this hotel may suit the budget conscious. Breakfast is fine, but rooms cramped and antiseptic. In-room toilet more resembles a porta-potty than a real bathroom. No charm, but not pretentious. It is what it is!

A little basic but got everything you need. Competent, courteous staff. I had a clean spacious room. Hair dryer provided and a good sized shower, although it was a little awkwardly build into the room. It's a bit of a walk to the city centre but good transport links with the trams. Breakfast is not a buffet but is perfectly... More
