“Great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

We spent 2 nights there in April 2013. Great location beside the main train station and adjacent to a major city transit hub. Got our free transit passes for our stay when we checked in. Front desk staff were very helpful in assisting us in using the transit system, recommending restaurants and sights to see. If possible get a room 8th floor or above. They have full glass exterior walls. Very clean and functional. Free WiFi.

If you are planning to go to Geneva for short bussines trip, this hotel is a very good option, free wifi, decent breakfast, super clean. But do not expect something execeptional, normal room, a bit noisy if you need to open the the windows. Staff in the reception, incredible Unfriendly, horrible!! Is the worst staff that i have ever seen in any hotel. In general good choise for 2 days bussiness trip.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

This hotel is conveniently located to the Geneva Cornavin Railway Station, 10 minutes by train from the airport. The rooms on the upper levels are good and many have excellent views. The rooms are quite well insulated from outside noise (e.g., the railway station), but poorly insulated from internal corridor noise. The breakfast restaurant has great views. Wireless internet was free and relatively fast. I thought that the price was a little excessive.

Room Tip: Rooms on the upper floor facing away from the railway station are the best.

We arrived late and left early. We were three and had one room. Normally a room for 3 involves a tiny foldaway bed. Our room was huge with proper size beds and room for more. Plus a huge, well equipped bathroom. Very comfortable beds and good quality bedding. Breakfast was in a genuinely panoramic room at the top of the hotel - that was ok rather than great and not of the standard of the room. Very convenient location as well.

Location is fantastic. I stayed here over the years and have received excellent online rates. Rooms are spacious and clean. Wifi was expensive, now free, albeit rather slow. Amazingly quiet as far as external noise is concerned, corridors can get noisy in the AM if you're trying to sleep late.

Room Tip: Floor 6 and above

This hotel is situated next to the train station, which I think it is really convenient. The room facilities are not that fascinating, however, if you compare the roomrate with the same standard hotel around, I think it is reasonable.

The Paranomic Breakfast room is amazing, even when the BF price is kinda costly.

Another the plus for the hotel is that the staffs are friendly.

Room Tip: Since every room has the same rate, try to ask for the higher floor and corner room

I stayed at this hotel recently for one night for a business trip. It is ideally situated directly outside the railway station and has plenty of coffee shops, eating places and shops within walking distance. It has a large lobby which is well suited to hold a business meeting. The room was good with a very clean bathroom, a desk and minibar. Air con was cold but duvets were thick and warm. Main downside was the noise from the corridors at night
