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

Stayed here last year, so looking forward to return trip. Very disappointed by unfriendly staff, but otherwise perfectly adequate if you are catching a flight - just 5 mins down the road. The nearby L'Azzurra (2 mins walk) as good as ever, but book in advance to avoid having to wait for a table.

Hotel de France looks like the only game in town....or rather in the village. You do not have too many options in Ferney, a comatous suburb of Geneva on the other side of the French border. If you do not crave the charmless chains of hotels designed to welcome herds of international organizations' delegates, you may yield to the temptation... More

This is a lovely family run hotel on the edge of Switzerland - yet the hotel could be nothing else but French. It is small, homely, friendly and comfortable. Not luxurious - our room was small and furnished with old style wardrobe and dressing table... a comfortable double bed and a pristine shower room. We had a window over the... More

If you want to stay close to Geneva airport in a hotel which gives you a taste of France rather than a taste of airport this is the hotel for you. We arrived late in the evening before an early morning flight and wanted something not overly expensive but not too boxy. My husband told me to check for a... More

Attractive historic building right in the heart of the village. Stayed in good-sized doulbe room on top floor (99 euro) - necessitating 3 flights of steep stairs (which are no big deal). Shower could do with upgrading, but adequate. Tea/coffee making facilities in room. Breakfast is extra (9 euro) and OK; you can even boil your own egg! Overlooks village... More

Its quiet location and accessibility to Geneva by bus and car make this hotel a great asset. But do not expect much help at the front desk. Staff is overwhelmed and devote more time and attention to the hotel's restaurant bussiness than to hotel patrons. Charging extra for breakfast is unfair. Be aware: there are no airconditioner or heating facilities... More

Close to Geneva, in Ferney Voltaire, there is a house , from 18 th century, which had been built by voltaire himself for his "ideal City", and which is now a great hotel and an excellent restaurant. The rooms have kept the charm of the ancient time, with beams and chimneys, whereas the food is very " modern cuisine", served... More

This place sums up France for me, good and bad. Good in that everything was of a good quality, including the room (given the price I paid relative to other accom near Geneva airport during a major conference) and the splendid breakfast. Located on a quiet street in the middle of what looked like a very nice little town, I... More

First of all, if you look for the cheapest 2 stars hotel around Geneva, you may not have great expectations. This is how I crossed L'Hotel de France, but what I really found is an historical building, in the past owned by the private secretary of Voltaire, to which the town of Ferney-Voltaire is entitled. The building has been partially... More
