One of the best things about this hotel is the location - it really is "Central" - just minutes from shops, restaurants, trams, buses, The Lake & The Old Town. Staff at the hotel are very friendly and helpful. We stayed for 3 nights in March and booked a standard room. The room was quite small with a tiny shower/toilet. As others has said, you open the room door straight into the shower room. The mattress was VERY firm and the lighting was low energy making the room look dingy. On the plus side the room was very clean, we had fresh towels every day and there's soap, shower gel & a hairdryer. We knew when we booked it was only a 2 star hotel and the price was reasonable for Geneva but If I stayed there again I would pay the extra for a superior room. Breakfast is brought to your room on a tray at a pre-arranged time to suit you. It consisted of fresh croissants, rolls, jam, butter, tea or coffee & juice. We had no complaints about the breakfast.. The hotel gives your a travel pass you can use on buses, trams & the ferry across the lake, we used this extensively (it probably saved us a fortune).
We managed a trip to the United Nationals building, you need your passport to gain entry and there's a charge for the guided tours - definitely worth a visit.
Restaurants are expensive compared to Britain but we expected this. Anyone wanting to buy an expensive designer watch will be spoilt for choice.
