“Excellent hotel - we would certainly stay again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2010

Our scoring says it all a very clean and immaculate modern hotel. We also took the opportunity to use the budget hotel next door for our teenage son which added to the convenience of this hotel. Use the number 10 bus to get to the hotel in under 10 mins and get off at the Balexert stop using the free pass available at the airport machine. Location is good as only 10mins bus ride to the city.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2010

Geneva is a very expensive city and this place represents great value. Its 12 minutes by tram or bus from the city centre, but the public transport system is excellent (and free to tourists, other cities should do this). It is only 5 minutes by bus from the airport.
Rooms are very large and you can comfortably have 2 young kids in the room with their parents. Great free movies/TV and internet system (and free phone calls!). Microwave and fridge in room. Furnishings are not-fancy, but durable (again, great for kids) and nice enough.
Breakfast is basic continental style, but ok. Restaurant was closed for dinner the week we were there. Large shopping centre directly across the road was handy.
For a basic hotel the staff were very helpful and consistently pleasant.
For a family this place is great, for business great, for a romantic break you may want to look elsewhere and spend more.

Simple and functional, but one of the better business hotels I've stayed in. Spacious rooms with bath & shower, large table with free high-speed internet connection (one of the few hotels I've stayed in Geneva where you actually can work if you have to ...) and all other amenities are ok. Only minus is the location, but in 10-15 mins public transportation takes you to the center or to the airport.

I like Suite hotel because it is quiet spacious, and there is a spare bed for someone else if absolutely required. It also has free internet... a must have for a business traveller like myself. Breakfast is pretty good if it is free (its continental but I like the basic bread, jam, chocolate spread, cheese, yogurt and bircher muesli). It also has a free gym too but theres not much in there... I wanted to jog but theres a bicycle and two weight machines (hardly a gym but better than nothing). Ive stayed in rooms 509 and 617 and they both were the same layout. I had a microwave, small fridge and kettle. They give you a free bottle of water, although water in Switzerland is usually clean to drink. Bed was comfy and overall stay was (and Im still staying here for another 2 weeks until I find an apartment) good. Much better than Nash and Ibis. I'm glad I stumbled across this hotel in Cointrin because its the best by far out of the 3. There is a shopping mall Balexert across the road too, very convenient if you need to do some grocery shopping (I bought some food which could be heated up in the microwave). The number 10 bus (very close by) takes you into the city too and it;s also still pretty close to the airport (about 10 mins by bus away). I don't have kids, but I think this hotel is ok for family as it is quite spacious.

Stayed one night in Geneva with children (2 yrs and 4 yrs) on the way to Crans Montana. This hotel was perfect! 4 beds in one room allowed all of us to sleep comfortably without having 2 rooms. Hotel was minutes from the airport (take the #10 bus) and across the street from a mall with a grocery store. Room was clean and had a microwave and refrigerator which was key for kids who like warm milk. Hotel overall was modern, clean and comfortable. The staff was helpful also. The only downside was it is a bit away from downtown Geneva, but the hotel provides bus/tram passes and its only ~10 minutes to Old Town. I would highly recommend this hotel!

Stayed in family room with 2 extra single beds. Good room rates via internet. Pleasantly surprised at the large size of the room. Good shower and bathroom. Free internet. Complimentary coffee and tea downstairs. Efficient and polite staff. Ideal for the airport. Opposite a large shopping and cinema complex with several restaurants. There was a taxi strike the day we departed, but bus service was very convenient to the airport.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2010

Stayed night before an early flight from Geneva.

Its a good 20 minute walk from the airport. Bit of a nightmare with luggage in the snow, It's best to get a taxi (if only 'id known - but had been told it was easy walking distance).

Reception staff were ok but are clearly used to volume of guests, and a smile was an effort.

Room was a good size for one person. Internet was free (a bonus in Switzerland) and the bed was comfortable. Modern furnishings but clearly furnished to a budget! Very clean!

Theres a good shopping centre opposite, but only one restaurant attached to the hotel. Quite expensive for what it was and not the best quality. I booked via 'laterooms.com' and was charged £9 in advance for breakfast which really wasnt worth it.

I'd try a different hotel next time I have to stay near the airport in Geneva, but it was ok 4 1/2 out of 10!
