A reasonably priced hotel with a very good location near the Central Station and with a nice view of the river Rhone. The room (and especially so the shower) was a bit on the small side but it was cosy having a space inside the "tourelle".

Geneva is expensive and this is one of the cheaper hotels located within easy walking distance to the train station. Still cost around $180 Aud a night though. We Just stayed the one night and I had asked for a quiet room with nice views, and we ended up getting a nice view facing away from street and onto the... More

A bit hard to find, as there are no signs of the hotel existence. As there is no main road to reach the hotel. However, the location is very good to visit the city and the museums, at night it is noisy as it is a main street with cars and drunk people going out late at night. The hotel... More

If you exit the main doors of Cornavin train station, turn right and head towards the bridge over the river. The hotel is about 8 minutes away on foot without a disability, so location is a huge plus. The hotel is reasonably-priced for Geneva at 144 CHF for two with breakfast in June 2016 booked through a popular hotel booking... More

Booked this hotel for a 4 night trip to Geneva. The hotel is a budget hotel for Switzerland however, for a basic room, I was very pleased. I was in room 5 which was very large and had a seating area in a turret! There was a double bed and also a single. The room benefitted from a balcony overlooking... More

Small, clean, quiet hotel with helpful staff. Breakfast served in a small dining area behind the reception but it was more than adequate with fruit, cold meats, cheeses, yogurts, tea and coffee - would stay here again. Value for money and good location.

I spent two nights in Des Tourelles with my girlfriend. The most important advantages of that place are: the location (let's say it's next door to Mandarin Oriental, with great view to the river from rooms) and also the reasonable prices, as for Geneve. Easily accessible from de Seujet parking (40 CHF a day). The breakfast is rather basic. Wi-Fi... More

Good location, safe, close to train Station, a stones throw away from old city...it was perfect for my short visit. Has English tv chanels and friendly staff. Tends to get noisy if you are allocated in a room by the busy road though.

Small family run hotel, not luxury, basic services, but in a great location. The hotel is not easy to find as its part of a shared block along with a dentist and a dance school etc. The hotel shares a common access. Although the reception is located on this floor you have to go up some steep steps. The guest... More

My partner and I stayed at Des Tourelles for a couple of nights and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The hotel is in an excellent location and there's great views of Le Rhone, especially when the restaurants and bars are lit up at night. The only issue we had was that our room was quite noisy during the night due... More
