“match what I had expected”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

My two nights stay were comfortable, if I would say. The room was clean. TV in my room was out of work, but this problem got solved quickly thanks to a friendly staff.
The location of the hotel is a bit far from downtown, but it's near a tramway station.
And it's very convenient for travelers to get to Geneva Airport. There is a bus stop right in front of the Hotel, and you can take that bus accessing to airport directly.

For Geneva the price is pretty reasonable (I paid 115.- CHF per night), the staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was very clean, the mattress was a little bit hard but they said they will change them this summer. The rooms are soundproofed and air-conditioned, so its quiet and also comfortable in the summer. Even if the hotel isn't in the center I would definitly stay there again! By the way: you also receive a free ticket for the public transport!

Geneva is notoriously expensive, so this rather new Ibis hotel in Lancy is a welcome option. As you would expect from an Ibis, it is no 5 star place with marble bathrooms and fluffy carpets, but for what it is I really like it. Very clean rooms, wooden (ok so maybe laminate) floors, comfortable beds, modern feel. You'll find the bathrooms either funky or horrible - they have the feel of a bathroom on a ship, all made of one large plastic block - but if you like clean and functional, this is for you.

I found no place to stay in Geneva centre for the night, but Ibis had a room available. The room was clean and more than spacious enough for one and the bathroom was clean with a nice shower. Helpful staff and wifi in the room with no problems. They also have a garage facility for 15 francs (per night?). Location a short drive from Geneva centre and no sounds from neighbouring rooms. Very happy with my stay.

Really quite good. Nice, clean hotel: like most Ibis, a bit minimalistic, but very comfortable. Excellent help from the staff. WiFi free and good quality. No. 14 tram straight outside into the middle of Geneva. Airport bus stops outside too. Breakfast choice good, nice food. No real problems at all. Free public transport with a complimentary Geneva card. Would definitely stay here again.

For what it is, a business hotel in business district it is Ok. Comfortable rooms. Average food although you are better to take free tram I to town and eat by the lakeside. Friendly staff. Quite expensive.

Of course this is a faceless, soulless, low end chain, offering little more than a place to crash. And the location is on the fringe of a business park, so I guess they had corporate travellers in mind. Petit-Lancy is close to the airport and well served by transport into Geneva or out to surrounding satellite conurbations, but certainly offers nothing to see or do in itself, and is a drab and charmless place.

Having said all that, the standards here are, for me, far higher than equivalent chains elsewhere in the world. It is better maintained and decorated, and more meticulously cleaned, than the Travelodges or Holiday Inn Expresses that are it's peers in the UK and US. Plus, the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. By international standards, it's quite expensive, but relative to other Geneva institutions it strikes me as offering reasonable value.
