“Budget by name, budget by nature”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2013

In summation, not cheap enough to justify the shortcuts. Parking was available for 15 francs a day which was reasonable although you had to be buzzed in and out. Clearly security is quite an issue. Staff were pleasant and answered questions helpfully. The room was very plastic with a bunk bed over the bed head which would have been good for a couple with a child I suppose. The toilet was in a separate plastic cubicle which resembled a toilet you would find in a caravan. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable however. Tram and bus stops were very convenient - directly outside. Fine for a night.

Here's the good parts: cheap for Geneva, location is easy to reach and you get free public transport passes. Free wifi. Clean and quiet. Service is nice and friendly. Parking available and cheap.

What made it difficult for us: the first room we got smelled badly of smoke.
The second room was much better.
Mattress is very hard and uncomfortable, so that we couldn't really get sleep.
The air in the rooms is super dry, especially in either that is not a good idea.

The rooms were splendid , lovely mountain snow clad window view, friendly staff, 10 minute tram to the Center of the city, the famous fountain and the main tube station. Yummy eateries around! 15 min ride by bus from the airport to the hotel which is free of charge! Best part is the hotel provides you with free travel tickets for Geneva-train tram bus for 2 days which makes you feel really warm ,comfortable and welcome to the city!!! Traveling usually is expensive around and that being sorted out feels great!

Room Tip: snow clad mountain view room available

Geneva is an expensive city and this hotel offers good value.
Staff are great and very friendly and they even let us check in at 11.45 am!
The room is clean and has everything you need for a sleep, which is all we wanted. It is very clean and was quiet. The only thing we didn't like about it were the sheets as while they were very clean, they must have been cleaned with some quite strong detergent or starch as we both got rashes and itches.
The location is great, with a good underground car park and then a free ticket to get to downtown Geneva from the tram next to the hotel.
Breakfast is rather poor though, with little variety. Best to go to one of the nearby supermarkets and buy it there the evening before.

Stayed there for the first time. Comparing to normal ibis hotel this one is even more basic. Though very clean and personnel is helpful.

Please consider you have to pay 2 CHF for small bottle of shower gel, deposit for hair-dryer and iron and you will have sink in your room next to your bed.

This specially business oriented hotel is fitting best targets of getting a low budget night in Geneva. All rooms are the same, shower and toilets clean and fitting one person at most. Free WiFi and basic breakfast. next to a nice swiss restaurant and within a junction to all public transportation. i sleep there every month when i pass through Geneva, no need for more.
