I have been staying in Cite Verdaine for a few months. PROS: The hotel is ideally located in the old town, which makes it very convenient to commute to the city center. Rooms are kept very clean (cleaning is done twice a week, including on holidays; thus far it has been very reliable). DISADVANTAGES: However the furniture is not very... More

So far the service has been excellent. The staff are friendly and helpful. The warm welcome I received from Nadia upon arrival was simply the best and I've felt at home since I arrived. The location is convenient with most bus lines and you can walk to the train station if you want some exercise. I only wish they'd get... More

To start off Kristel and Nadia were absolutely brilliant! This apart-hotel is in an amazing location, in the heart of downtown, very near to all conveniences- be it shopping, buses/ trains, sight-seeing, getting around, dining and the night-life. I stayed here long-term and was highly impressed by the services (twice weekly cleaning) and the room was ideal with a well-equipped... More

I adore Geneva (for the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande and the Grande Boucherie du Molard, and a lot else...) and there is no better base in my view than the Residence Cite-Verdaine. For my second stay, the wonderful manager, Kristel, gave me a superb room with a wrap-around balcony... I enjoyed every moment in Geneva, and will return to... More

My wife and I (senior citizens), my son and 9-year-old grandson have just spent four days in this aparthotel while on our first visit to family in Geneva. We would have no hesitation in returning, and will when the occasion arises. For a short stay visit, it is well located, steps from the Old Town, the rooms we had were... More

I stayed at Cite-Verdaine for 8 nights in January 2014 when I was in Geneva for work. It's in a great location at the edge of Old Town, within 1-2 blocks of major bus and tram routes and within 5 blocks of major stores, including a supermarket. I was on the top floor which was quiet but sacrificed some space... More

I am amazed to read so many complaints here...but I see they are all rather old. I moved here yesterday from another hotel which has paper-thin walls and lousy - but dear! - wifi.

I stayed here for 3 months this summer and early fall (June-Sept). The location is terrific- right at the edge of Old Town, 5 minute walk to the lake, 1 block to trams, tons of shopping.

A comfortable enough place to stay in a great location, close to shops and the lake. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Kitchenette very basic, but great to have a sink, small fridge, microwave and some crockery and utensils. Not ideal for cooking much, other than microwave meals. No oven, just a cook top. A shame they didn't provide a... More
