This very basic hotel is nicely located in the Old part of town. It is a short walk to the bus that goes to the airport and is near many shops and restaurants. No air conditioning but on our last day we discovered that they had fans which helped. Our room was large enough for a desk and a table... More

This is my second visit. The hotel is right in the old city, less than 5 minutes from even the furthest bus or tram stop, close to many restaurants, and surrounded by old & interesting historic buildings. Of course summer in Switzerland (even in early September) is an interesting season, but on hot days, most hotels tend to struggle with... More

Excellent - a great choice when in Geneva! Location, rooms, cleanliness, service, breakfast were all wonderful. And best of all you are contributing to a good cause by staying there. Don't miss the rooftop terrace!

We had a wonderful stay. Not luxurious but the bed and the room were fine and the bathroom had modern fittings and lots of hot water. Free wi-fi, the staff were very helpful and the breakfast was excellent. Best of all, you're right in the heart of the old town, with its ancient stones and streets. And hills! Also a... More

Nicely situated in the old town. Single rooms are small but neat and fresh. No air conditioning and rather noisy street outside (cheerful people, not cars) so ask for a quiet room if you need to sleep with open window. Beds a bit on the hard side for my taste. Nice breakfast buffet.

The rooms are clean and quiet, the location is superb, the staff are friendly and very helpful, the wifi is free, the showers are strong. What else, really, do you need? The prices are very reasonable by Geneva's pricey standards and there were no hidden extras on check-out. I'd certainly recommend it and will use this hotel again when next... More

We were very happy with our hotel room, location in Geneva, staff helpfulness with transportation routes and answering our questions. We especially loved breakfast and the roof terrace. Bel'Esperance was affordable, quiet, comfortable and met our travel needs. We are happy to recommend it.

You may not think first of booking at a Salvation Army-run hotel when visiting Geneva. But I’ve been doing so since I’m not a resident there anymore. The location is superb for a pedestrian visit of the city, smack at the border between the Old Town and the shopping-friendly Rues Basses. The rooms are simple but spotless clean, wifi is... More
