Coming from third world, we faced many challenges including payments on credit/debit cards. The way Hotel Carmen have been handling me and my colleagues, showed the level of understanding global challenges and yet without compromising their excellent service delivery.

Great place to stay for the price. We only stayed 1 night. The rooms were roomy and clean and the breakfast was very reasonable. I very much enjoyed the preserves they served with the bread basket. Would definitely stat here again.

Don't be put off by the staircase to reception or the reception area itself. Rooms are renovated and comfortable. Staff pleasant and helpful. You can ask for a room with a balcony. 10 minutes by tram to Cornavin.

Located about 10 minutes by tram from the main railway station. Good tram nbr 15 connection. My room was with bathroom/toilet. Room was clean and functional. Peaceful area. Good wifi in room. Breakfast reasonable. This was a busy week in Geneva so roomrate was high CHF 130.
