“nice old hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014

They try to keep the atmosphere of old hotel - furnisher, carpets, overall appearance. Looks nice but not always convenient in terms of easy to use.
Very hot in the rooms. No central conditioning but stand-alone conditioner which makes such a noise that it's impossible to sleep. Bathroom need some renovation.
FiWi is free and works good.

Average for business trip. Lots of dated knick knacks to make the hotel interesting. Very good views overlooking one of the city squares.The front desk service stood out as the only exceptional item for the hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms with a balcony overlooking the bustling square.

Nice hotel in the middle of Geneve, the breakfast can do a bit better but the price is correct for what you get.
Nearby is the lake and nice restaurants, a nice bed is waiting after a good day s walk!
The staf is very friendly we always stay in this hotel.

You have to understand the Swiss. They embrace the art of The Deal better than most. They offer you something, you give them money. It's quite simple, and it's never personal. What you get at Longemalle is a very well placed hotel slap bang in the centre of Geneva. That's what you're paying for. Not the delights of the facility - that would be extra, but you're not going to pay extra because you're not going to get too many extras. Like a big bathroom or big room, or a quiet peaceful sleep or sumptuous breakfast. No. You will get what you pay for. We got a tiny room with a minute bathroom, so we upgraded to a slightly larger room with a minute bathroom. The floors creak, you hear the neighbour's plumbing, there's nightly carousing in the square and there's no parking. The bathrooms are begging for an upgrade. But for all that, we enjoyed our long weekend here, being close to the old town, good restaurants and shops, and the pretty-as-ever lake. The staff was helpful and efficient. Geneva was dressed in her best spring gown and looked utterly charming. And we were well placed to see it all.

This is a charming hotel old world Geneva with old world values, a baroque reception and polite efficient staff. It is superbly situated for shopping and the old town. The breakfast room is elegant with tall windows opened onto a balcony overlooking the Place d Longemalle. Along with the usual choice of Continental breakfast buffet there is an egg boiling machine and toaster so we had, do it yourself eggs with soldiers and excellent coffee. The hotel would benefit from a bar although you can use the bar and restaurant in the sister hotel next door. We will definitely return.

Hotel Longemalle is wonderfully located for a quick stop in Geneva, but the rooms are small, tired and awkward, and the service was terrible. We booked a classic (base room) twin - for kids, and a superior double, for parents. After checking in we noted that the double room was ordinary. Tiny bathroom, no work surface or desk at all, squeaky parquet floor. A quick check of the kids room showed it was twice the size, although still not great. When we asked the front desk, they said 'too bad'! You booked a classic and a superior, that is what you got.

Breakfast buffet is not good either, serving possibly Switzerland's worst coffee. Not what you would expect at all.

Room Tip: DOn't book the 'classic' room, unless you are stuck and not planning to do anything excp...
