The reviews of this place had me a bit concerned, but since our priority was to be able to walk from the train station with our luggage to the hotel, we gave Hotel Des Alpes a chance. Indeed the location isn't the fanciest, and you're not right on the water (that would have cost 4x as much!), but the rooms... More

One of the numerous hotels in the central area close to the train station. The location is excellent for travellers. There are many restaurants and shops in the area. The hotel is renovated. The rooms are nice and clean. Nothing fancy, but, utilitarian. They don't have a restaurant. Serve "cold" buffet breakfast. Adjacent to the Red Light District. Service is... More

The room was TINY and LOUD. Conversations from the hall could be heard clearly. The bed practically sat on the floor, the pillows were terrible, there was no carpeting, the view from the room was roofs covered with pigeon poop and standing water. The first day the breakfast room was horribly hot, but was better the second. The breakfast was... More

The staff was there 24 h a day, friendly, accessible, helpful. Proper room service, freindly, agreably furnished rooms, practical, with everything we needed for our comfort. Situated near the train station, a five minute walk from the lake. Very convenient.

Stayed here on a short business trip as it was inexpensive in an otherwise expensive city. It was perfectly acceptable for one night only. Room was comfortable. Good wifi connection and the hotel supplied me with a power adaptor as my standard European adaptor wouldn't take in Switzerland. The hotel is well located, close to the station and a short... More

I stayed here 4 nights in June 2016. It was my 4th time staying at Hotel des Alpes, and I will continue to go there every time I go to Geneva on business.

This hotel appealed due to its reasonable cost and convenient position. It is close to the railway station, close to the lake and also very accessible to the vieille ville (a comfortable walk or a short, free ferry trip across the lake). Its immediate surrounds are not particularly nice but a very short walk gets you to the more exclusive... More

Close to the train station is certainly it's best feature. It's a three star hotel that is safe relatively quiet and clean. It's a decent base for a quick trip through Geneva. Clean, safe and mostly quiet. If I were staying more than a day or two, I'd look further out for something cozier with a bit more charm. Helpful... More
