Very well located near to Geneva train station. The hotel was modern, clean but basic. The rooms are small but functional, perfect if you are not going to spend a lot of time in the hotel. There is air conditioning but it only appears to go as low as 20 degrees. Breakfast is provided in a small room on the... More

This hotel is well located, within a seconds walk of the main train station. This worked well for us because we used the trains for a few long distance day trips out of Geneva and with the train so close we felt safe walking their early in the morning and we didn't have to get up too early. There are... More

Great experience. Staff was friendly and allowed a very early check-in (10am!) after I sent an online request. Price was best in town, and for a train traveler, location can't be beat. Rooms are small, but perfect for a solo traveler - couple would be fine, too, but likely would feel more cramped, AC was personally adjustable, beds had clean,... More

Convenient to the train station. Quaint it is not, but efficient it is. There was nothing wrong and it had the amenities it claimed it just wasn't warm in any way. The staff was cool, the design was cold and it was priced quite a bit higher than many other places we stayed.

We stayed 2 nights and enjoyed it very much. The room was modern , compact without being claustrophobic. Really intelligent use of bathroom and storage space. The reception staff were polite and helpful . We were given a 3 day Geneva pass which gave free travel on buses, trams and some boats. Really good choice of buffet food for breakfast,... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and whilst the location was good and we liked the styling, the hotel was let down by poor service and useless air con. The Good. 1.

First time I used the Cristal Hotel. I normally stays at the Cornavin Hotel which is managed by the same company. The room at the cristal might be slightly smaller, but except that ( and the color scheme) it's exactly the same. Breakfast is also excatly the same and the location is as convienent. so the difference: - Cristal is... More

We stayed for 3 nights in April. How expensive is Geneva? The hotel was good value in comparison to others, however it was impersonal and lacking in comfort. The young man on reception appeared severe and suspicious and this wasn't endearing. The room was modern, with blue hues and whites and had a transparent bathroom, which was interesting. The hotel...

Pleasant reception. Took short time to check in. Small room. Gets hot inside. small shower area. Rooftop breakfast Inc. in the room price. Good view of Geneva water jet from breakfast area. Very near to train station and shopping malls with many restaurants nearby. Starbucks next door. Good for short stay. Paid CH 950 for 3 nights rm 603.
