The hotel has a great location; only 10 minute walk away from Geneva train station and probably the closest to Geneva airport (if you are taking taxi, it means you'd get there fastest - keep in mind those taxis are not cheap though)... although having somewhat dated decor, the location and staff make up for any shortcomings you may feel...

Me and the hubby always stay at The Pres when he's in Geneva for work. Staff are so accommodating and the location can't be beat. A real gem with such high standards - loved the beds so much that we have one at home now (for guests)

As a SPG platinum member, you always receive free room upgrade at check-in.Unfortunately, it is not the case in this hotel, they will charge you a lot of money for your room upgrade. Remember to ask if you have to pay anything extra before you accept the so-called room upgrade.

The rooms are very comfortable with very friendly staff. The restaurants on-site are very good, specially Beirut the Lebanese restaurant. If you get a room with view of the lake that's most ideal. At times during the Fete de Geneve it is over run by families so not the best time.
