We stayed here during our visit to CERN, and as we rented some cars, we had space for parking, and it was a cheaper option. It is in a little village near the Swiss border, very near to the Palexpo and the airport, and Meyrin. As you drive out of Switzerland it won't be difficult to find, as it is... More

The room was very small and was smelling bad. Only one small window in the room. The internet connection was very bad and most of the time we couldn't connect. Maybe the only good thing was that was near CERN (about 20 min walking) were you could find tram for Geneva. I think you pay a lot of money for... More

I stayed in this Hotel for my Business trip to Geneve, because it's just located at the border near the CERN. Although the location and the price could be an argument, but I would recommend to pay a little bit more and stay rather in another Hotel in Geneva. It was a Sunday night and the restaurants was closed, and... More

We, unfortunately, have the displeasure of having to stay here for one night. My husband had to visit this area for work, and I went along for the ride.......BIG MISTAKE!! We were greeted by a man behind reception with a creased and dirty shirt on, and a sticky threadbare carpet in the 'foyer'. We were booked in and given our... More

Very narrow rooms, very little wardrobe, very difficult to be reached without car, very sad and poor breakfast, not enough light, nor kind nor careful service, not good Internet service. I didn't like it

We stayed here as a last resort. As part of our honeymoon trip we had an early flight out of Geneva airport. So we decided to spend the night before at a cheap 'travelodge type' hotel. We weren't expecting much. Upon arrival we had to wait at reception for 15 minutes, all the while ringing the bell and trying to... More

Rooms are small, very minimal but decently comfortable, especially beds. Too few electrical sockets (only 3 per double room, one of which is occupied by the TV!) but bathrooms are hair dryer equipped. Friendly English speaking staff. The hotel is located near a major road with a large shopping center 3 km away: if you have a car, you'll appreciate... More

Rooms highly variable. Two of my colleagues had rooms that smelled so much of mildew that they left the hotel without even staying the night and went down the street to the Holiday Inn. My room was small, basic, and fortunately did not smell. Walls are thin and conversations in next room easily heard.

Alhough the building has a little bit cheesy look, I found my room really-really cosy and warming, even with a touch of cute :) No problem I can remember of, they also have a splendid wifi network (but I had no fridge). You have to take care of the meals, they either serve only if you ask beforehand, or they... More
