Along with a colleague, I recently used the Ibis Annemasse as a base for a business trip in Geneva.

The first point of note was that had we stayed over the border in Switzerland, we would have paid approximately twice the price that we paid in France, both for accommodation and sustenance.

The hotel is as expected for an Ibis. Large, modern bedrooms with good bathroom facilities and stunning views towards Geneva and the mountains as the backdrop to the rear of the hotel. The bed was huge and being at the back of the hotel, it was quiet. The rooms and reception area were cool despite the 33 degree+ heat outside and this further aided a great night's sleep.

The breakfast was a perfect, continental arrangement with a great selection.


Whilst there is more than adequate parking on site, beware that the main car park to the rear of the hotel is accessed via a tunnel with a height limit of 1.85m; we were in a Land Rover with a height of 1.97m; on arrival, there were no parking spaces left at the front of the hotel, several of which were taken up by small cars which would have had no issue parking in the main car park. To the credit of the staff, they did move cars around to afford us a parking space and on that note, the staff were excellent both on reception and front of house.

Access to Vesenaz and Geneva was simple from the hotel and a tip to save a few euros is that if you arrive via the motorway, you will have to purchase a Vignette (road tax) for Switzerland at the border crossing, however, if we had arrived at the hotel first and then made our way across the open borders (as I understand it) a vignette would not have been required as we would not have traveled on the Swiss motorway network.

Finally, we didn't eat in the hotel but did venture along the main road to find several places during our stay. As you come out of the main door of the hotel, the majority of small supermarkets and restaurants are to the right with a great Pizzeria about 5 minutes walk away and a Chinese/Cambodian restaurant directly opposite to the hotel.

Room Tip: Request a room to the rear of the hotel, away from the main road.

Excellent breakfast if ordered
No hidden parking fees, sufficient and safe parking slots
Good connection to Geneve with bus 61 (though it takes 40 minutes)
Quiet room with view over Geneve one would not expect from the entrance side
Free, but not-state-of-the-art WLAN through-put (perhaps only my room)
Multi-cultural guests
Unbeatable value/price ratio
Would stay there any time again

Corridor and room smelled strongly of cigarette smoke.
Receptionist could not direct me to the nearest supermarket (which was a 8-10 minute walk on the same street as the hotel)
I would normally recommend Ibis as I have used a few in France Spain and Italy, but not this one..

I have stayed at the hotel for a number of weeks and my only criticism is the Internet quality. It is very poor. It is not a WiFi issue just a very poor and very random connectivity issue. Most nights I can not even connect to the Google Home Page. Very frustrating and disappointing

Excellent in value in comparison to Geneva city centre prices. Checkin staff and hotel staff where all excellent. Only negative is why does it cost so much in a taxi from the airport to this hotel yet it is less than 9klm?

room ok, friendly staff. At 150€ you would expect that your free internet connection works though. When the hotel is full it takes you hoours to get connected.
Breakfast coffee: unbearable. The SAME tortilla on the breakfast buffet was there three days in a row.
