“Basic hotel with extras...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

Although I would agree that the hotel is basic and has its problems, I found that the extras it offered put it above many others in Geneva and in the general area. If you have a car I would recommend it as a choice to consider if you are visiting Geneva or passing by on the Motorway to Italy.
The rooms are clean, beds comfortable and windows open to enjoy the breeze that comes down off the Seleve. The rooms at the back of the hotel have a good view of the mountains and are quieter than those at the front though even those are quiet at night (the complex closes about 9 and there is little noise). The rooms at the front do overlook the carpark which is busy during the day.
The bathrooms are clean and have real soap (no squeezy soap bottles here), though the lack of a shower door is a little puzzling. Water pressure in some rooms is variable but I found hot water plentiful.
The extras which swung it for me were a basic breakfast with fresh orange juice, good machines for fresh coffee, some dried and fresh fruit, cheese and ham, yogurt and the normal coissants and pain au chocolat, free wifi internet throughout the hotel (not restricted as in some hotels) and free access to vitam park (free pass for each person in the room each day of the stay).
Vitam park has large indoor and outdoor pools with waterfalls and slides, a large gimnasium with latest machines, climbing walls and dance classes in the evening. The hotel pass entitles you to use one of the facilities each night for free (I believe its extra for the spa).
There is a disco across the parking lot but didnt even notice or hear anything during my stay.
McDonalds closes at 11 so is a good option if youve missed local restaurants that close fairly early.
Well located for Geneva, the motorway to Lyon, Annecy, Chamonix and Geneva though you do need a car.

Room Tip: Rooms on the higher floors and at the back are quieter and have better view. Ask for your vouchers...

Motel-type rooms; much too expensive especially considering you have to pay 10 euro PP to use the Spa, which the hotel advertises as part of their amenities. Breakfast is very basic, served in a concerete bunker with no windows. Warning: disco is across the parking lot, so I would not book a weekend here. We found 2 pubic hairs on the counter by our sink, so we checked out 2 days early. LOTS of noise from other guests closing doors.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2012

This hotel really surprised me.
I wasn't expecting much for the price but the rooms were large and clean, everything worked, the TV and internet service was great, lots of parking just outside and the adjoining rooms meant that it is very family friendly.
Having a shopping centre next door (including a McDonalds) kept the costs down but the big bonus is free access to the nearby waterpark included within the hotel price.
This is great value - it effectively means you get the room for free.
Fantastic for a stopover if you're going to the Alpes
Just watch out if you have a high vehicle - the car park has barriers that restrict access to cars less than 1.8 metres

Room Tip: Top floor room away from the lift at the front overlooking the car park

At first is difficult to find the hotel, the signs are not well visible, the street indicated is not shown on GPS maps as it is a new small road.
The hotel itsels has all you need for a night in a clean and quite place, no frills but good value for money
