“Very good stay”
Reviewed July 1, 2012

I found no place to stay in Geneva centre for the night, but Ibis had a room available. The room was clean and more than spacious enough for one and the bathroom was clean with a nice shower. Helpful staff and wifi in the room with no problems. They also have a garage facility for 15 francs (per night?). Location a short drive from Geneva centre and no sounds from neighbouring rooms. Very happy with my stay.

Really quite good. Nice, clean hotel: like most Ibis, a bit minimalistic, but very comfortable. Excellent help from the staff. WiFi free and good quality. No. 14 tram straight outside into the middle of Geneva. Airport bus stops outside too. Breakfast choice good, nice food. No real problems at all. Free public transport with a complimentary Geneva card. Would definitely stay here again.

For what it is, a business hotel in business district it is Ok. Comfortable rooms. Average food although you are better to take free tram I to town and eat by the lakeside. Friendly staff. Quite expensive.

Of course this is a faceless, soulless, low end chain, offering little more than a place to crash. And the location is on the fringe of a business park, so I guess they had corporate travellers in mind. Petit-Lancy is close to the airport and well served by transport into Geneva or out to surrounding satellite conurbations, but certainly offers nothing to see or do in itself, and is a drab and charmless place.

Having said all that, the standards here are, for me, far higher than equivalent chains elsewhere in the world. It is better maintained and decorated, and more meticulously cleaned, than the Travelodges or Holiday Inn Expresses that are it's peers in the UK and US. Plus, the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. By international standards, it's quite expensive, but relative to other Geneva institutions it strikes me as offering reasonable value.

Ive stayed on and off at this hotel over a number of months and am not very impressed. Yes its clean (most swiss hotels are), yes its modern and yes its convenient being on a newly opened tram line and bus route to the airport but....like most hotels in Geneva the prices it charges for its rooms swing widely based on demand and it knows that it doesnt have to work too hard to get clients and that shows in the treatment you get from the front desk staff. They seem to have a problem with the air conditioning in the corridors which run at a temperature more appropriate to the tropics than downtown Geneva. Although free internet is offered I found that the skype connection on my phone would drop every few minutes which for me was a definite negative, combined with a poor restaurant, no gym facilities and windows that cant be opened made this my second choice to hotels outside the city, even though it was for me very convenient for work.

The hotel, in common with all other hotels in Geneva provides card that give guests free access to public transport. It does have a bar area and some limited spaces to park a car in front of the hotel (though not sure if these are time limited).

The area in which the hotel is located is not central. You need to take public transport to get to the center of Geneva or the Airport. Restaurant options in the area are limited.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are a little quieter though I hardly noticed the sounds of the trams passing in fr...

The hotel itself was modern, clean, and fairly standard. Not a luxury stay, but comfortable beds and adequate room. Very clean, with a nice, bright and compact but smartly organized bathroom. Staff was friendly and helpful. The downside is the hotel's location; there just isn't much else in the neighborhood. A couple of uninspiring restaurants, a sad mall, and not much else to see or do in the evening. Thankfully, as with all hotels in Geneva, we received cards that allowed us to take free public transportation while we were there, and there is a tram/bus intersection just half a block from the hotel which was very convenient.

I was in Geneva for the annual motor show and prices in that period tend to be higher. the hotel is well conected to the aiport (bus 23) and city center (tram 14) both with station near the hotel. the staff was very polite and of great help. we received complimentary travel cards for the public transportation for the entire duration of the trip.
