“Nice clean room in good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2011

More of a dorm than a hotel room, but it was adequate as I only needed a place to sleep and stash luggage. Location is so conveniently located near bus stops, in front of a mall (good for if you need to buy snacks and coffee, last minute souvenir shopping, there's also a post office, etc). Pretty good value for money, considering the city it's located in..
Would have been nicer if there was free wifi though..

Etap hotels are always a safe value. Moreover in an expensive country as SwitzerlandThe room was small but neat, and the bathroom was divided into 2 (shower and wc alone). The disadvantage of the room was the cristal door of the shower (you can almost see what is going on on the other side).

The room is nice, very small but a good value for money. Cleanliness is so important to me, and I found it is not bad in ETap, Overall, it was a nice stay.
Keep it up!
A big advantage if you review your wiFi connection rates.

The hotel is outside the town centre towards the airport and right in front of the Balexert shopping centre. Very good value, bedrooms simple but adequate. Free wifi is a plus and the only gripes are the absence of shampoo in the shower and the dreadful coffee at breakfast. You can get a decent coffee in the shopping centre opposite. Easy car parking in front of the hotel, at a reasonable price. Good bus connections to the town centre.

Me and my wife reached Geneva in the evening and had to spend the night as the next morning we were to travel to Wengen. We looked for hotels in Geneva and this was the best deal we got on the internet. The hotel was just 10 mins bus ride from the airport and we had taken our free 90 mins public transport ticket before leaving the airport.

The hotel is easy to locate, right opposite Balexert Shopping Mall and the bus stops right there. The hotel also gave us free public transport cards for travel in Geneva. The city centre is easily accessible from the hotel via bus/tram.

The room was very basic but had all that we needed. We had a comfortable sleep and the place is ideal for stopovers. But if you are looking for luxury or on a honeymoon then this is not the best place to be.

Stayed 2 days at the hotel in the beginning of November. The hotel is close to the airport and to a huge shopping mall. City center is also easily within reach (the hotel also provided for free bus tickets during the length of my stay). Room is a bit small, but that is no dealbreaker. This is a great option for people who want to visit Geneva without spending a lot of money with accommodation.
