I was really impressed with the Hotel Cristal Design. It's very clean and modern, with comfortable beds and nice bathrooms. The room wasn't huge, but big enough for a kingsize bed. As I was on my own, the wardrobe/storage space was plenty, although it may be a bit tight for two people or a longer stay.
The street outside can get a little noisy at night, but the windows are completely sound-proofed, so it's not too much of a problem. The only issue I had was that the air conditioning only works during the summer months, so I couldn't get the temperature below about 21C, which is a few degrees hotter than I would've liked!
The location is great, less than five minutes' walk to Gare Cornavin, which has direct services to the airport. It's also next door to a Starbucks, which was perfect for breakfast every morning (the hotel does offer breakfast, but CHF19 was a bit pricey for me).
Given this is one of the cheapest options in central Geneva, you can't go far wrong.
