I booked this hotel based on other comments on Trip Advisor, but prepared to cancel my room on arrival. I was just so unsure of booking a 2* hotel. I paid about £210 for 3 nights bed and breakfast, including taxes and the free travel pass. I had a room with 2 beds in, pushed together, so assume it was...

In general, hotels in Switzerland are really expensive but this was an affordable hotel opposite the train station. The hotel is in a converted office building and can be difficult to find if you do not look for it closely. Service at the hotel was good and was shown to my room promptly. Was allowed to switch to a different...

For the record, this was the first time where tripadvisor reviews failed to paint a proper picture for me when we stayed here. Ladies and gentleman, this hotel is really a converted office building. No joke. When you enter from the elevator, you can see that there is one large central room with the guest rooms down the left and...

It was not easy to find it, because the sign-plate is small, but you should consider that it is just in front of SBB Cornavin railroad station. First impression - very cozy. Old style Chinese furniture in the hall as well as in the room. We have stayed one night in the room 9 and it was really big (compare...

There was really nothing bad about this hotel. It occupied one floor of a commerical building across the street from the train station. Probabably the closest you will find. A short walk from the hotel was a pedestrian walk with food and a few shops. There main transportation hub is outside so you can use the free transit ticket to...

The Hotel les Arcades is located in the center of Geneva, across from the train station in a busy area of shops and restaurants. The hotel is one story up from street level: ring for entry to an elevator that goes to the lobby. Parking is available across the street beneath the station; rates are 20 euros overnight. The hotel...

We stayed in Geneva on route from Italy to France. It is a good transport hub to many parts of Europe, and has fast trains to Paris (3.5 hours). Most of the reviews of this hotel already say that it has a great location, which it does, friendly service, which it definitely does, and has a great breakfast, which it...
