“Great Value, close to the airport and Palexpo”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2011

Attending the Geneva Auto Salon at Palexpo (at the Geneva Airport) I needed something close to the airport, modest, clean and with free wi-fi. I got it all at Hotel 33. The bed was comfortable (full bedding - sheets/blankets/bed cover NOT just a duvee), the bedding/towels clean, the bathroom and shower excellent. Breakfast was very acceptable, and the front desk service was excellent. The night clerk was friendly, helpful, informative and smart. I was able to walk to Palexpo, and the Number 10 bus between airport and city stops outside. I thought the tariff and amenities added up to very good value for money.

I needed to make a cancelation during my vacations due the French Strike and they didn’t accept my cancelation and they charged the full rate ….. I was coming from Nice and the airline and all the services I could changed them without an extra fee due the circumstances but the staff of this hotel was no reasonable of the problems that I had at that moment. They said it was not their fault…….. not nice

Only attraction of this place is its only 200 meters away from the airport & if you are stying only for short duration & have an early morning flight to catch you can stay at this place. Btw it aso provides free wifi internet which is pretty fast

Otherwise Hotel looks very old.. with very old & dirty carpets & very old bed sheets.. Room service is poor.. Door do not lock properly.. Average breakfast...

Not very expensive compared to other hotels in Geneve. Carpets look rather old and could use some maintenance but the hotel was clean and had a nice breakfast. It's near some bus sops, near the airport. Would probably stay there again.

This is a very very very basic hotel, that looks stuck in the mid-80s. The rooms are basic, but functional and clean. The hotel is a great location as it is walking distance (20-30 minutes) from the airport or you can take the No 10 bus to/from the airport, the same No 10 bus also takes you into the city. This bus stop is virtually outside the hotel.
Breakfast is continental with lovely fresh bread. The reception staff were very courteous and professional.

We took 4 rooms in this hotel for a night before flying back to Britain. It is close to petrol stations so no problem with filling up cars before returning to the airport rental. Only 3 minutes drive to airport.

3 of the 4 rooms smelt of smoke. Basic rooms but clean.

Good continental breakfast.

There is a fantastic Italian Restaurant just outside the front door. It is worth going to the hotel for the food here

We stayed in the hotel for an overnighter prior to returning to the UK early the next morning from GVA. My first impression was that the hotel was more used to booking rooms by the hour rather than by the night. The stains on the carpets throughout the hotel are horrendous and you can only imagine the source of these. Suffice to say that I didn't even remove my socks on the stay there as the thought of walking on the floors was offputting to say the least. The Italian restaurant just opposite the hotel was good and the breakfast at the hotel was better than expected. Hotels may be cheap and cheerful but there really is no excuse for the owners of such an establishment to allow a business to be so tatty and rundown as this place.

  • Liked — Convenience for GVA
  • Disliked — Everything but the above
