'Central' is a very appropriate name for this hotel, as it is very well located in the centre of Geneva, near the Old Town. The location is its best feature, however.
I stayed in a Standard room. I was quite disappointed, as I had a high expectation of the room, based on the photos I saw on the web site. I think that the hotel does misrepresent itself somewhat by showing lovely photos online, but then giving you something completely different. I thought my room would be modern, large and airy. Instead I got a poky, cramped and badly arranged L-shaped room, where I had to squeeze past a wall to get to the bed, and the décor was straight out of the 1970's: plastic chairs, lino on the table, chipped furniture, etc.
The room was noisy, as the walls were very thin. I could hear voices, movement and plumbing noises from neighbouring rooms. The bathroom was clean, generally adequate, except for the tiny shower cabin, which made showering awkward and uncomfortable. There was a hair-dryer, which I did appreciate, though.
To be fair, the room was clean, and the bed was comfortable. A continental breakfast was included, which was delivered to my room. The hotel provides free WiFi, which worked well.
