“Basic but needs to do better”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

Campanile is a basic chain but this is a poor example. We were allocated a room at the back of an annex which was dingy with a musty, damp atmosphere and lots of mosquitoes flying around the entrance. On complaining they changed the room without any problem to the main building, but the first room should not be offered to anyone. The rooms are basic but not well maintained. Judging by the shouting match that we heard between the cleaning staff outside, there are staff problems! Breakfast is basic but the cold meat and cheese slices look as if they deserve long-service medals. The location is a bit in the wilds, outside the town of Ferney-Voltaire, and opposite a building site. Poor value for what you get - better to go elsewhere

3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

This is a very basic accomodation very close to Geneve and a good alternative to the high-priced hotels in Geneve. The rooms are clean, but the beds are not firm - they are obviously used. The breakfast is very basic - nothing too elaborate. The staff is very nice and polite. The location is a little off the beaten track - thus, you better have a car, otherwise cabs are going to cost you. The bathroom is clean and has good water pressure.

Overall good stay and got my money's worth.

it was hard to find an hotel at the French site of Geneva Airport this time so we ended up in the Campanile, for around EUR 75/night. The hotel grounds are currently a construction site and it was hard to manouvre through all the building materials and bulders vans.

The room was very, very small with a low ceiling making it very cramped and warm. Also the room was far from clean...

Staff was ok, check in went smooth but way overpriced for what you get.

We spent one night here thinking it was our best choice for an early morning flight from Geneva. Our room was small and gross. Dirty, bugs, smelly. And it is a 30 Euro taxi ride each way to get here. What we know now is that there is a 6-minute train from the central train station to the airport. Had we know that, we could have stayed near the train station for the same amount (hotel price plus 30 Euro taxi ride times 2) and stayed in a much better place.

In the past We always were very happy with the Campanile chain .
On the 4th of june and on the 14th of June We chose the Campanile at ferney but were very disapointed by this hotel especially when We discovered that the hotel was a building site , especially the first night . At the moment We made the reservation no one told us that the dining room was closed and for this reason there will be no breakfast and for this reason were very angry about the very bad service of the hotel .
If the hotel is in general renovation it's unfair not to advise the clients .

Got in at 23:00, left at 5:00 the next morning.
Room was not clean, bed was not comfortable.
Location was perfect for returning car to the French side of GVA airport.
Price was very low (60 Euros).
Next time we will try somewhere else, even for such a short stay.
