comfortable room & bed, room with a view. Kettle in room for boiling water, teabags & Nescafe supplied. Bathroom is compact but shower cubicle is normal size. Friendly receptionists. Hotel is within walking distance of BFM concert hall.

Very good location, it is a very cosy hotel, with good views. A litle bit too much noise and a very small bathroom. it is close to the city center, all the shops, and public transportations. I recomend it for a short trip.

Reasnobly priced hotel for Geneva, centrally located and easy transfer from airport using free ticket machine which is located in baggage claim. You are also elegible for a free transport card which you can use on bus,tram and water boats, which we used extensively during our stay. The room which I stayed in was good size with balcony with a...

Our room in Des Tourelles was a typical European hotel....old structure, dated, small room, very tiny shower and fantastic view. Staff was very pleasant and accommodating. Being on a main street near bars and the University takes a toll on a hot September night .... especially Friday and Saturday. The laughter, shouting, car noise and sirens kept us awake. It...

I spent one night in this old hotel for business issues but accompanied by my girlfriend. These two stars are of my review are dedicated to the river view (that I previously required) and for the nice and kind girl at the reception. We arrived at 2.20pm and we had to wait for 15mins to have the room ready and...

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".

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...

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...

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...
