“EasyAccess”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

Hotel is very nice and close to attraction and public transportation. Rooms are not large but need to contain tea set beside what they have. Hotel is comfortable and clean. Bathrooms are clean and convenient. Wifi is inclusive in the rooms rate.

Room Tip: Rooms on the back of the hotel are quieter and have good access to Wi-Fi

Very nice and cozy hotel right near the railway station, trams, busses, trade center, and close to the Old Town. The hotel is comfortable and cozy; the rooms are not large but contain everything needed, free WiFi inclusive. The rooms are very clean. The bathroom is convenient. The hotel is very well suited for business trips. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

My wife had booked this hotel in celebration of my birthday. She was devastated when we arrived. It was an ok city centre hotel.

The bedroom was quite small. The bathroom was a strange shape and, in proportion to the bedroom, was surprisingly large. The shower was an accident waiting to happen and happen it did. The shower curtains are too long. As I was showering I became aware that the curtains were blocking the drain and the water was in danger of over-flowing. In turning off the water I scalded myself, stepped back to avoid the hot water, trod on the curtain and fell out of the shower, pulling the curtain with me. I later realised that I had fallen into the only available space without hitting a wall or bathroom furniture. Luckily, I escaped with a bruised hand.

The breakfast room is too small for a hotel of this size. Consequently, there are times when it gets very busy and some guests are more accommodating than others. Two members of staff do all they can to stem the flow with good humour. Breakfast is adequate. Rooms are adequate. City Centre location is good and there are a wide selection of restaurants nearby. There are better hotels in Geneva at a similar price.

The Bernina Hotel is wonderfully located for all railway users.
The disadvantage to that is the noise you get from the streets. Also the rooms to the back have a street view and since behind the hotel the "shady" quarter starts those streets can be noisy.
The rooms and the whole hotel breathe the spirit of the sixties.
The lobby furniture and the elevator may have museum value.
Bathroom appliances certainly have seen some decades of service.
Breakfast can be crowded; the room is very small.
Otherwise it's a friendly place and, yes, nicely located...

Room Tip: Go for a high floor!

Nice hotel at a very close proximity to the station. We were initially offered a very small room. We requested for a bigger one because we were travelling with a baby. The hotel staff immediately accepted the fact that the rooms towards the front of the hotel were too small and they shifted us to a bigger room. The room was nice. The only drawback being that in summer, the fan provided by them might not suffice the requirements on the rooms on one of the top floor of the hotel as it becomes really hot during the day. Breakfast spread was good and elaborate compared to a lot many other hotels in Switzerland.

The hotel is in a great location directly behind the railway station, near the lake, shops and restaurants. The rooms are dated, but clean. If you Air Conditioning, do not book this hotel in the middle of the summer like we did. There was a floor fan in the room and we slept with the window open for circulation. Due to the location, outside noise and no AC, we did not get a comfortable night sleep, however, we got what we paid for. The staff at the hotel were wonderful and the Complementary breakfast was above average. I would stay again....but never in the summer.

Room Tip: Do not book in the summer time if you like Air Conditioning.
