If you avoid hotels because the pictures look old fashioned and you worry the place won't be clean then don't worry about this place. It's right next to the station, so super convenient but also very quiet, especially if you ask for a room at the back. You don't hear a thing from the station. The rooms are all well... More

Best thing about this place was it was air-conditioned! Geneva, Lausanne, Montreux were unusually warm and ac made this stay very comfortable. We had a large family room for 2nights. It was very clean. We needed to climb a flight of steps to reach the reception. But they have an elevator at the ground level which was unlocked once we... More

Nice Hotel with very friendly staff, very near to railway station, 5 min on foot to city center. Very clean, freshly renovated rooms. Got an upgrade, maybe therefor room very big, huge bathroom. Only issue: room out to street, loud at night, windows could better, as AC is there also.

For the first time I am torn. The Victoria is a very elegant hotel with a beautiful interior. from the outside it is less inspiring. A hotel of contrasts, as we will see. Such a nice change from the chain hotels where sometimes it seems that you need a reminder as to which city you are in. The reception staff... More

The Swiss rightly have a reputation for excellent hotels, but that means that we expect higher standards. This is billed as a 4 star hotel but it is more like 3 or 3.5 stars. No doubt it has an excellent location, almost opposite the station, and in fact for that kind of place it was remarkably quiet (I asked for... More

If you are traveling by train, the location cannot be beat. But this is one of those sad, rundown hotels that have seen better days. The bathroom was very nice and clean and the room was large, but it had that mildewy smell that older hotels sometimes have -- it is fine for one night for business travel (which is... More

Stayed two nights for a family trip. Positive: close to the city centre and just 4 stops to the lake. Proximity to plenty of restaurants. Clean. Kind reception. Spacious bedroom. Negative: Original decor, I would say worth 4 stars in the '70s... nowadays it is quite old throughout, cracks on the walls and floors Broken bath tap, old bath, hair... More

The hotel is certainly more personal than any of the "big" names with a "turn of the century" feel. The room I got was fairly big with a view of Lake Geneva. The gym is a bit small, and has not A/C but usable. The location is a huge plus if you´re coming by train like I did as it´s... More

Stayed for four nights on business. The room was clean, tidy and roomy. A mix of old and modern decor throughout. I did not use the fitness centre on this trip as the weather was nice so I ran outside. The key area for improvement is breakfast at the cost of 20CHF. The selection was very limited and on some...
