Stayed for 1 night for an affordable stay near Geneva. Everything about this place is ok, nothing spectacular. There were a lot of bugs in the room as the back door of the room is not exactly air tight. Probably would stay closer to Geneva next time but this is convenient to get on the highway.

Seven of us decided to stay here for a one night stop over due to its close location to Flaine Ski resort. Despite the rooms being clean and tidy the service we received at the hotel is shocking (it is so bad i am writing this review whilst sat in the hotel bedroom!). The receptionist would not lift a finger... More

This hotel is surrounded on 3 sides with high traffic streets and the noise is terrible all night long. We had to have our room changed 3 times because the air conditioner did not work, and the front desk staff was less than cooperative in helping us. In the new room there is mold on the ceiling. The housekeeping staff... More

Older facility but well maintained. We stayed in a "Family room" which is two rooms each with three single beds with a connecting doorway. We had two bathrooms for our family of 5 which was convenient. Rooms were tight. Reception was friendly. Good value for the money. Free parking and free wireless internet worked well. Driving to Geneva for sight... More

Looking at the Genevois region and the avarage prices I think this hotel is in the good ones. For 64 euros/night it is really OK. Clean room, new furniture and nice bathroom. It is not a high quality Hotel but it is really OK comparing with all the ones around with higher pirce (Ibis for example). I sleep 4 times/month... More

Very nice hotel for staying, not so far from Geneva downtown and from the Alps. I stayed in the hotel one night for resting after a long car trip. The hotel is located just before the Alps Mountains. The breakfats is very good. It would be nice to have the option for the eggs since they are only offered boiled.... More

The problem with Geneva is that EVERYTHING is very expensive, you can save a lot by staying on the french side (for example Gaillard) Do not come to this hotel if you don't have a car, it will be a very long journey to Geneva on public transportation. The rooms are tiny and old, the staff doesn't have a clue... More
