Simply the friendliest and most efficient check in I've ever had (and I've had quite a few) including free transport travelcard valid for your full stay. (Think free travelcard might be a universal thing but non the less explained well to us)
Geneva is expensive in general but this hotel is superb value for money (for Geneva). Considering a standard zero personality Ibis hotel was 20% more expensive this hotel has to be described as a bargain.
Room (number 225) was huge with nice ensuite bathroom. The complimentary continental buffet breakfast was also excellent (one of the best I've had), nespresso machine and wide selection of coffee, fresh fruit, cold cuts, cereal, yoghurt, croissant, jams etc.
Interacted with 3 different reception staff and all were excellent, friendly and efficient.
Location is right next to a major transport hub so ideal for getting around and only 15 minutes by bus to the airport (bus number 5).
If I ever returned to Geneva - I wouldn't consider staying anywhere else.
