Hotel is a great position for travelers staying for business or leasure. Structure is not the top in technology but much comfortable. Size of single room is good, but the double room is great. Much space to stay but bathroom could be bigger. Breakfast is acceptable. Global evaluation is good!

The Excelsior was a great hotel with excellent staff engagement and customer service. The elevator was outdated but it was unique. The room itself was on the larger side and was kept very clean. The bathroom in my room was gorgeous (nicer than my bathroom at home!). Excelsior also had a complimentary breakfast. One of the nicest things about the... More

The staff was very kind and the service was very smooth. The room was a bit narrow, with only a single bed and a shower. The breakfast was sufficient. But the day I stayed there, the road which was in front of the hotel was under construction and that made the room noisy and dusty from 8am, so you should... More

That's a poor title but difficult what to pick. This is an older hotel and accommodation is a bit squashed but they have tried to make it a pleasant stay and service was excellent. Unfortunately they were digging up the road outside when we stayed. Otherwise, well situated. We did not try the breakfast. There is no easy parking but... More

This brilliant hotel is really authentic , we loved it, we had a huge room, right at the back. Think it was #5. Big renovated bathroom. When we were there Geneva was having a heatwave and my friends who live there told me hardly anyone has a/c, hardly any hotels have a/c - it's not usually 35 degrees! So I'm... More

On my way to Monaco to meet some friends, coming from Frankfurt, I decided to break up my trip and check out Geneva for a day. I will grant that my GPS not knowing the road out front is closed is not the fault of the hotel. However I really feel like this should be somehow addressed by them. I... More

I stayed here just one night. Arrived with wife and kiddie circa 11pm and checked straight in. The rooms are extremely dated with no aircon. However, they are Extremely clean, spacious and have comfortable beds. The location is absolutely superb for the main station (where you get discounted parking for about €7 per day) and the Surrounding streets have very... More

This hotel is right in the centre of the town, very well located. Facilities are clean and comfortable. However, in this summer the heat was unbearable, there is no air conditioning! So, if going in the summer, not the best place to be! Other than that , it is recommendable.

This hotel is in a great location. It’s a 5 minute walk from the station, which in turn is a 10 minute free ride from the airport (get a free ticket in the baggage hall and all trains go to Geneva, just get off at the first stop). There are 3 good cafes in the same street as the hotel... More

Great location for seeing Geneva. Station only five minutes away. Reduced price parking for guests under the station. Friendly and helpful staff. Our only complaint was the lack of air conditioning in the hot summer but you get what you pay for.
