“Affordable, good location, a good base to explore Geneva.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012 via mobile

The Ibis Petit Lancy is an excellent location for anyone visiting Geneva. The hotel itself is comfortable and clean and the only thing that is missing is tea and coffee making facilities (not sure if that is a particularly British thing or not). The reception staff are friendly and speak enough English to help us folk with limited French. The shower is powerful and spacious. The beds are comfortable and a priority for us was location and we couldn't complain about this at all.

To get from the airport you can get the 23 bus which takes you straight into Les Esserts. You can see the hotel from the bus stop and it is just a mere three roads to cross to get there. Transport in Geneva is free and you will be given a pass for the duration of your stay. The transport system is amazing! Although the hotel says you are in Petit Lancy, Les Esserts is closer so use that as your destination.

Just across from the hotel is the tram stop which takes you into the centre of Geneva. This tram stop is Les Esserts and the centre of Geneva is either Stand or Bel Air. It takes around 10 minutes to get there and the tram runs from early morning until 2am.

We didn't eat in the hotel so can't comment on the food however it was priced in comparison to the more reasonable restaurants in Central Geneva. The drinks are reasonable and budget hotel next door does have a vending machine if needs be.

There is free wifi and you can pick the code up each day at reception.

We were totally happy with this hotel and would recommend it for anyone coming to stay in Geneva on more of a budget.

I liked the hotel. The room was clean and very comfortable. The breakfast is somewhat overpriced but given the hotel's location there isn't much else in terms of choice. However this is a minor issue as overall the experience of staying at the hotel was a good one.

Location fair – quite a distance from town.
Tram/Bus outside door - tickets supplied by hotel.

Spacious and comfortable rooms with good facilities for an upper end budget hotel.

Very helpful staff (as far as their English allows).

We stayed two nights and had a very comfortable stay. The room was just the right size, and the bathroom was extra small, but ok. We loved the extreme closeness to a couple different bus and tram lines, which made transport very easy. However, it was almost 25 minutes from the Geneva train station, but all things considered, it is worth it for the savings you have!

My two nights stay were comfortable, if I would say. The room was clean. TV in my room was out of work, but this problem got solved quickly thanks to a friendly staff.
The location of the hotel is a bit far from downtown, but it's near a tramway station.
And it's very convenient for travelers to get to Geneva Airport. There is a bus stop right in front of the Hotel, and you can take that bus accessing to airport directly.

For Geneva the price is pretty reasonable (I paid 115.- CHF per night), the staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was very clean, the mattress was a little bit hard but they said they will change them this summer. The rooms are soundproofed and air-conditioned, so its quiet and also comfortable in the summer. Even if the hotel isn't in the center I would definitly stay there again! By the way: you also receive a free ticket for the public transport!
