“Strange Place”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2012

Just had 2 nights at this strange little hotel, looks modern on the ouside but decorated in the most bizzare style, pretty tacky to be honest.
Also the walls are so thin you could here every bowel movement and flush from adjoining rooms, if you want a quiet night sleep give this place a wide birth.

Room Tip: a long way from lake but near a very good steak house.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2011

Rococo/baroque style decoration throughout is rather unusual. A large glass chandelier as the main light in my room.

Apart from the decoration the hotel is very pleasant. The rooms are rather old but very clean. Breakfast is continental and adequate. Free wifi throughout the hotel. Fresh fruit was provided daily.

Hotel is well outside the centre of town. However, the are several bus stops nearby. Make sure you get the free ticket from the hotel for public transport.

Hotel Adriatica is located at the end of the number 5 bus line which takes you right to the airport and with the complimentary pass the hotel supplies it saves you from am expensive taxifare. Staff were friendly, helpful. Fresh fruit was waiting in my room. While not in the heart of the tourist district it was only a short walk away from the old town. I has a tough time finding a hotel and did not know what to expect. My room was clean and the WiFi free and strong signal. Only quirky think was the floor ac unit but it worked fine. I would definitely stay at the Adriatica in the future.

The staff was very spontaneous, approachable and helpful. The hotel was a bit expensive in terms of amenities and the quality of the breakfast. However, I enjoyed my stay as I was on a business trip but would recommend this hotel if you are on a vacation.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2009

Located in a quiet part of Geneva (no night life, few restaurants) this is an old and basic Hotel. They try with portable A/C units (very noisy) and flat screen TV's and DVD players, but it needs a refit. The bathrooms are small and plumbing random, but the room was quite large with a sofa and desk. (free WiFi). For Geneva the hotel is reasonably priced and is located close to a park and within walking distance of the old town (10-15 minutes).
There is a fruit basket delivered to the room and the breakfast is good continental style.

I have stayed at the Adriatica many times in recent years and it is a warm family hotel.

It serves breakfast only but the rooms are warm and cosy and as it is family run they are most welcoming to a tired traveller

This hotel located by the Hospital downtown Geneva is a very pleasant little haven, its like going back in time.
The staff are very pleasant and go out of their way to be helpful.
The rooms are a little dated but very clean and well cared for.
And even though you feel you have gone back in time low and behold you can work away at your desk using a wi fi connection to the internet.
It took me back to how hotels used to be run before the clone nature took over the business there is nothing plastic about the Adriatica it is a pleasure to stay there.
