My wife and I spent 2 nights at this hotel at the end of May 2013. It was easily the most affordable hotel during that period around $160 USD, other hotels were around $500 USD per night. The hotel staff was friendly and check-in was easy. From Geneva airport take bus #23 to the Les Esserts station, you can pick up a free pass to ride public transit for 80 minutes before exiting baggage claim. Also, all Geneva hotels provide a free transit pass for the duration of your stay. The hotel across the street from tram line 14 into Geneva and two bus lines to Carouge (bus stop Tours de Carouge) a bohemian town near Geneva. Public transit runs regularly from Carouge to and from Geneva as well.
We had dinner at the hotel our first night, which was fine. There is a market, bakery/cafe (breakfast), and some restaurants nearby as alternatives. Otherwise, use your free transit pass to go to either Geneva or Carouge (15 minutes away). Wi-fi is free, at the front desk you pick up a slip of paper with your user ID and password, which is good for 24 hours. The hotel also provides walking maps, public transit maps and other pamphlets for tourists.
Geneva is not the most budget friendly city, so staying at this hotel helped. Lastly, this hotel is next door to the Ibis Budget Petit-Lancy (entrances are 5 feet apart). I don't know how much that costs, but you can check it out as well in case this hotel is not available.
