the room was very clean and reasonably well decorated. there was a small but well supplied mini bar, coffee making facilities, an in room safety box, a small falt tv with 7 international channels and a lot of swiss and german alternatives.
the bed was a bit hard, but at the end you get used to it.
despite of being in the ground floor facing a busy street, few noises were heard from the street (more noises heard from the interior fo the hotel).
the bathroom was very clean but very basic, the less attractive facility in the room.
the heating system was too low for a cold december night, with a not enough warm radiator. even when waking up in the morning, the radiator was cold.
the free wifi worked well.
the staf at the reception was very polite. when i need a towell for my room (being two persons, we had got only one) they brought in a few minutes. they offered themselves to explain about the hotel small watches and watchmaking material exhibition and even they politely refused to charge me 15 sfr for my dog as he is a very small dog.
i did not try the continental breakfast as i woke up late (which can be a problem on sunday as all the bars and cafes around are closed).
the hotel does not provide carpark (which is not a problem in week ends).
when you pay for a double room in this hotel 115 sfr, it is good value for money. however, in working days price can be double, which is not value for money (the very close ramada encore geneve is a good alternative to compete).
the low temperature at the room and the aspect of the bathroom have left this hotel with a 3 tripadvisor points, instead of four.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- With 32 rooms and junior suites, the Hotel des Horlogers was entirely renovated in 2008 to resemble a small museum reflecting the long history of watch-making in Switzerland. The interior design plays on the theme of watch-making, allowing you to discover and admire a collection of over 250 tools dating back to the 18th and 19th century. All the rooms benefit from quality bedding, a minibar, complimentary tea and a coffee, free Wi-Fi and an LCD television set with a wide selection of international channels. Breakfast is served in the form of a cold buffet, and the hotel has a garden graced by a beautiful weeping willow. Located in the centre of Plan-les-Ouates, the building is less than 3 minutes away from the main Swiss watch-making district and the Geneva stadium. The Geneva International Airport and Geneva Palexpo are a 10-minute car ride away; the city centre and lake are 15 minutes away and accessible by public transportation (bus and tram). A large public park and numerous shops surround the hotel, and a variety of restaurants can be found nearby.
