The hotel is nice and well located , near the bus stops of the F to Geneva and Y to the airport. The house is old but well refurbished and kept. The breakfast is well done. One has to consider that the rooms are located on 3 floors and the lift is not existing. The personnel usually doesn't help to... More

The restaurant is of a very good standard with an interesting menu that varies with seasons (I have been a number of times throughout the years). A good wine card. One can say that the restaurant serves very good traditional French food but at the same time is quite "heavy",but this does not deny the excellent taste of the food.... More

Be aware when booking this historic hotel that breakfast is not included in the price of the rooms and that you MUST book a table for dinner even if you are a guest staying in the hotel. We waited 1hr 30 for our starters, having turned up with no reservation, with no explanation as to why there was such a... More

We were recommended to this Hotel by a friend, however it is very basic.Firstly although we were warned that there is no lift, we didn't imagine that the stairs were narrow and steep. We had a room on the third floor and it was very cold. There were no curtains on the windows which I think may have helped keep... More

Although the room itself is basic, I loved getting out of town and staying in the cute village atmosphere of a small typically french town. Much more atmosphere than staying in one of many geneva airport hotels. The restuarant is a highlight, actually the pride of the place and four course haute cuisine. Easy to get here, bus Y from...

We really enjoyed staying the night in the picturesque village of Ferney-Voltaire, France. It's only a 5-minute drive to the Geneva airport, where we were able to return our rental car to the French sector of the airport and literally breeze through customs inside. And we wanted to stay in an inn that was locally owned and French. That said,... More

I've spent one night in this hotel during the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. The room was clean and very well equipped. The neighbourhood is quiet but inviting. The staff is friendly and attentive, although most of them don't speak english at all, the Hotel manager being the exception. The Restaurant is the pinnacle of the establishment, a traditional french gourmet... More

Stayed for one night as we were flying in and out of Geneva. Fairly easy to miss the hotel if you do not get off the bus at the right stop (take the 'Y' bus from the airport) and then it is a good 10 minute walk to the hotel. On arrival, the owner seemed a bit impatient on checking... More

We stayed in this hotel in april. Room was on 3rd floor and was okey. Bathroom was very clean, room was clean so big plus for that. Wi fi worked. In room was mini bar! The room didn't had air condition, but for me that isn't problem, just open the window :)

I stayed here while on business in Geneva. Its rooms are more the style of a good quality chambre d'hote/bed and breakfast than a hotel. However, the hotel is small and very clean with a decent breakfast. Apart from breakfast, I did not eat in the hotel. It is a 30 minute bus journey from downtown Geneva. Beware that in... More
