Hotel Edelweiss is my usual hotel in Geneva. I love the "chalet" atmosphere, although it is a bit of an acquired taste, and their fondue restaurant has to be experienced at least once in a lifetime.
Staff is very helpful and friendly whenever I visit them. The free public transport ticket for your stay in Geneva is also very useful. Rooms are comfortable, cozy and very "alpine". I like the beds in the hotel a lot and was positively surprised to see that the TV had Belgian/Dutch channels available. A first on my many trips abroad. The bathroom is a bit cramped but very clean and comfortable. I wouldn't mind a redesign of the shower though.
WiFi is free, there is a bus stop right across the hotel and you only need a ten minute walk to Cornavin station.
Minor quibbles: the airconditioning didn't work in my room. Since I was only staying one night I didn't make a fuss about it. It's never happened to me before when I visited the hotel.
Their fondue restaurant has a live "alpine music" band performing each night. You MUST eat there at least once.
The area around Geneva central station has become a bit of a security risk lately, though. Drug dealers do their trade openly, prostitutes line the street at night and you have to watch out for pick-pockets. The hotel can't do much about this, of course, but do take care when you go out in the evening.
