This little residence was one of our great finds for budget travelers. The rooms were extremely clean and included a little kitchenette with refrigerator, microwave, gas top, coffee & tea making facilities as well as a quite large room with comfortable bed and good heating. Switzerland is on the whole not a budget destination in Europe and eating out is very expensive so having access to somewhere to cook is fantastic. The hotel is located one street back from the lake and a short walking distance from the old city. From Geneva airport you can get free tickets for public transport in Geneva. You can catch a train to the main station then a no 8, 5 or 10 tram to very close to the hotel. There are plenty of cafes and restaurants close by if you need to go out to eat. Staff here are also very helpful with information and ready to assist with all you ask of them.
Tip 1: book well in advance if visiting in high season
Tip: 2 don't forget pick up your free public transfer ticket before leaving the baggage pick up area at the airport.
Tip 3: ask your hotel to provide you with your free public transport ticket which is valid for the whole of your stay and means you can travel anywhere in the city and back to the airport for nothing.
Tip 4: if staying here save money by cooking yourself.
