Stayed 2 nights at the Pre Carre at the end of June. This is a small independent hotel in the city centre, very clean, comfortable and quiet, with friendly and helpful staff. Great air conditioning (also silent) which was welcome in the heat of 33 degrees. We had the larger “Privilege” room, at the back of the hotel, so away from any potential road noise at the front. There was a small balcony, but no view – only to backs of apartments and a car park - however it is in the city centre. Our room was near the lift and we were concerned it might be noisy, but again it was v quiet, and we did not notice it. Nice modern and clean bathroom with rain shower and bath.
The hotel is an easy 5 min walk to the lake in one direction, and to the Old Town in the other direction. We had breakfast in the hotel for convenience – 16 Eu. Buffet breakfast of fresh orange juice, coffee, yoghurts, breads, pastries, cheeses, ham, scrambled eggs, hard boiled eggs etc, all nicely presented and fresh.
PC in the lobby with free internet use, small bar.
It is a 5 min walk from the railway station – easy to find, once you’ve found your way out of the railway station – ask someone to point you to the right exit of the station for Rue Somellier.
We took a taxi to Geneva airport as the buses are not frequent and offered no convenient times for our flight, and there is no train service. Taxi took 30 mins, Eu 95. Takes up to 2 hours on the bus! However the taxi driver did say the road can be v busy at commuter times so bear this in mind.
