“Below my expectations”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

This hotel is very uneven. I've stayed there a few times and usually something was more or less wrong: a tiny room (really, really tiny), dirty bathroom, poor room cleaning service, uncomfortable working desk and chair... There are rooms which are fine, but you never know which one you'll get. And even prices sometimes can be quite high, not justifying staying there. I also agree with one of the earlier comments - this should not be a 4 star hotel. Not even close.

I don't think I will want to "risk" again, unless I really have no other choice...

This was my second stay at Hostellerie de la Vendee. Definitely not 4 star. The amenities were average. The room was very small and the bathroom was very small. It was difficult to get in and out of the shower because of the design of the bathroom. It's location was good for me since it was close to my office and the breakfast was good. I will likely stay there again, but I will certainly ask for a room with a larger bed and larger bath. Staff was helpful. Internet access was nice and quick.

I found this hotel through bookings.com after I tried several hotels in the city centre. The prices in Geneva are outrageous so I wanted to be creative. It was a gamble and I did not know what to expect. It was a nice surprise.Folks are friendly, relaxed and helpful. There is a large underground car park, a large terrace to sit outside for drinks and there are several restaurants in the near vicinity (walking distance). The rooms are large enough, with space for a sofa and a chair apart from the bed of course. It is very clean and has al the amenities you need, flat screen TV, wifi etc. Breakfast was limited but that seems normal in Switzerland. I can recommend the place.

The staff were great on arrival and made me feel very welcome. The room was clean and functional (Room 5) with a great walk in shower - only gripe was lack of coffee/teas facility in the room. Free WiFi and a free travel pass included in the price was really worth it too. The breakfast was good, usual stuff - cereal, juice, bread and pastries with cheese, hams and salamis.

This is a great location for a stay in Geneva as it's way from the busyness but right on a bus and tram routes into the city and to the airport. Lots of free parking too if you hire a car.

Well worth checking out this litlle hotel for a short stay.

I've stayed here before and my last stay last week reminded me how much I dislike this hotel. The rooms are tiny, dated, worn, and lack any ventilation. The internet is unreliable and the service disinterested, at best. Breakfast food quality was reasonable, but I never saw a waiter after my initial cup of coffee; instead they were in the kitchen talking. Others didn't even get coffee. There are so many better choices in Geneva at a much better value proposition.

I like it! Mainly because it is 5 minutes walk from the office, secondly I really like people who work there, they have always been super helpful and polite, rooms indeed do not suprise with charm but I really think It is not so bad, and it is a solid and reasonably cheap place to stay in Geneva. I also really like lovely restaurant right at the corner, which cooperates with the hotel, and receipt can be added to the room price - great for me! I was really dissapointed by the breakfast, that's why now I do not order any, first of all it is crazy expensive, secondly it offers just some croissant, no scrammbled eggs etc. Very very limited choice, not worth even a half of the price.
There is a free Wi Fi which works well. The area is quiet and safe. I recommend this hotel, and for sure I will stay there when Im in GVA.
