We only stayed 2 nights at this place. Switzerland is pretty pricey when it comes to booking hotel rooms so £180 for 2 nights here was the best we could find. We thought it was good as it was so close to the station. I wouldn't recommend going to children as it's basically right in the red light district. The... More

Besides being noisy and on a street full of drug dealers and prostitutes 24/7, the staff stole (hopefully only) my GPS. Or in their words "we are not responsible for the things you leave in your room". Never again - don't leave things in your room if you stay more than 1 night. What you save in price, you pay...

The rooms are boring and thoughtless. The decor feels old and cheap. A upside is that it is very central to the Tourism building and the bus station/ metro rail. The staff was very friendly as well. Would I stay there again? Nope

The Admiral is a small budget hotel with friendly staff. It is clean and well run with a basic but reasonable breakfast. While the hotel is very near the train station, it is also right beside the red light district, which may be unsettling for some people.

Rooms dated and felt like a budget hotel (still100ch per night). Good location though near main station. Breakfast was poor like other reviews suggest and the boiled eggs had been peeled by someone else, yak!. Guess you get what you pay for in Geneva

Smelled damp, poor decor, small room, walls paper thin, noise until the early hours from the street outside! In the red light area so definitely not one for the kids! On the plus side, central location, 2 minutes from the train station and lake, great breakfast and nice staff.

Yes, Hotel Admiral is in the red light district, but I found the ladies who work the streets to be harmless. I wouldn't bring kids and expose them to this side of Geneva but as a solo traveler it was a good option. The hotel is clean, the staff are friendly, and the included breakfast had a great selection of... More

This hotel is in the very center of the red light district. It was super noisy and there were women soliciting themselves everywhere. The hotel is also directly next to a sex store. The rooms are very small and not inviting. I am sure they are used frequently by the ladies for sale outside. I did not stay the night... More

I stayed at this hotel for one night as I passed through Geneva. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel room itself was quite small. We could clearly hear noise from the room next to us. The breakfast was above average with hot food and continental ranges available. considering the cost of accommodation in Switzerland, this hotel is... More
