5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Slightly quirky checking in on the 4th floor but very friendly staff and the twin room we had reminded me of a backpacker hotel but it was clean and for Geneva prices it was very cheap. There is no dining room and breakfast is served in your room.

Hotel Central is in a great position in the old town of Geneva just one street away from the main shopping street and 2 mins from the Lake. It is a fast 6 min free train ride from the airport with a 10 min easy walk from the railway station. I booked this hotel based on location and price, it... More

Interesting location near lots of stores. It was very nice having two complete bathrooms in our quad room. Perhaps not the best choice for four adults as two of the beds were bunk beds, but it was affordable (for Geneva) and reasonably located. Breakfast was brought to our room. The food was fine but minimal, standard continental with no extras.... More

Switzerland is generally expensive, this was a great choice and reasonably priced for the location. Nice friendly staff, easy check in, we had booked a studio, it was a small room, but had a comfortable bed and what had to be the smallest shower cubicle I've ever seen, all very clean. Breakfast was included, delivered to your room at a... More

The location of this hotel is as the name suggests "central". It's on the edge of the old town which is lovely to wander around, there's lots of shopping nearby and its only about a 3 minute walk to the lake. We stayed in one of the apartments which worked out really well with 2 children because what kids really... More

The room is perfect for the price for what we paid for. The beds and pillows are comfortable and they also provide in room dvd player which you can spend your time with your friends in the room if the weather is not good for sightseeing.

Central hotel with great staff. My husband and I stayed here in room 39, a small room with a small balcony overlooking the street. It was clean, comfortable and bright. The breakfast was simple- tea, juice, croissants and rolls which we ate in the room at the table with the balcony door open. The food was fresh and the room... More

I've recently stayed a night here during a business trip. As Geneva is a very expensive place, there weren't many hotels to chose from, staying within the budget of our company's travel policy. Usually I would not opt for a 2 star hotel. Location is brilliant. Close to the old town and the lake, it allowed me to have a... More

When we checked in to Hotel Central we were greeted by a wonderful hostess who gave us our room key and let us know that since we were early to check in and our hotel room was not yet ready, had upgraded us to a different room that was ready so we wouldn't have to wait. Amazingly helpful and kind!... More
