I stayed here for 4 nights and felt like home. The view from my room was Mont Blanc with its snow, so fabolous! This hotel is not far from Isaac Mercier Tram Halte and Italian food are placed around. You can walk around the lake behind this place if the weather is friendly :)

I was booked into this hotel by someone who booked my business travels. If you look at some of the other reviews you will have grasped the positive aspects of this hotel. Location: excellent for railway station/airport access, overlooking the Rhone, staff super-friendly and helpful, clean. Breakfast is, well, *very* basic, but it does the trick. I had wifi included...

Stayed for three nights at this hotel and found it clean and comfortable. The exterior of the building looks rather shabby but the hotel has a great location, overlooking the Rhone and with easy access to the main rail station and also trams. The room was clean and very spacious with a lovely bay window area that had great views... More

My wife and I spent 3 nights at this hotel and we must say that we were pleasantly surprised by the hotel. The location of Des Tourelles is great. Shopping street and railway station were close, many tram and bus lines going close. Room was spacey and the room we got had a view to the river, which is sunny... More

I spent 2 nights in the hotel as part of a business travel. Considering the price, it is a very proper and good hotel. The staff were very helpful. The room was clean and cozy. As the building is old, they apparently needed to build toilet in the room, which are basically a huge plastic box. Although they are clean... More

Having stayed at a few hotels in and around the center of Geneva, I was pleasantly surprised by Hotel des Tourelles. When I arrived after an overnight flight, they checked me in before the designated time since they had a room ready. As others have said, the location is very convenient, rooms are nicely decorated and have good views. The... More

I liked this hotel a lot! First of all, it's located right to the Rhonne river and a lot of amazing sites are in walking distance. Second, it was clean and the room had a nice feel to it. The staff was friendly (their English isn’t exactly excellent, but it’s good enough - but this is probably just me being... More

The upside to staying in this two star hotel is the location and price. Located right on the river, the hotel is perfectly placed for an easy walk to the Gare and a visit to "old town". The downsides is unfortunately it is right beside a very busy bridge and the hotel has no A/C. So you can open you... More

The hotel is in an old building, but in good conditions. Room was spacious and comfortable, with beautiful view to the river. Personal nice and helpful. Location is good. Visiting Geneva you get in the hotel a special free ticket for public transportation, which we used a lot. Exiting the hotel you cross the bridge and you have there the... More
