“Good stay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2014 via mobile

I was extremely nervous arriving here after reading previous reviews. But was pleasantly surprised. Ok its not the ritz but its ideal for the airport and the bus link into Geneva city is amazing.
The room was large the beds were comfy, it was spotlessly clean with plenty hot water. Theres an excellent supermarche around the corner a lovely park and a nice tearoom. And you can walk to and from the airport. The number5 bus will take you straight into the city. And you can return on the very same bus. I would stay here again.

Stayed March 2014, traveled with friends

We had booked this place under the impression (according to the description) that we would get a studio room with a double bed and garden view and view of L.G-we had two beds pushed together which came apart if we tried to be close. it was noisy, no views at all other than a view of some flats right infront of us. TV was not working. Steep narrow and dark staircase to climb. The only good thing about it was that it was spacious!

Stayed for four nights because the place I wanted was not available until four days later. Arriving in Geneva for work I had four suitcases. Because of flight delays I arrived after the restaurant next door (where all business is managed from) was closed. Access was via a steep, dark narrow staircase at the side of the restaurant and with four suitcases this proved challenging and tiring. I was approached at one point by an unsavoury looking character with a offer of help and other suggestions!! Not a nice intro to Geneva. Room was noisy, dirty, cold and basic. Although large, with a kitchenette (I took the studio option) I was disappointed. Pillows were lumpy and flat and the bed was hard. Being on the Route de Ferney traffic was constant and as it's near a busstop with four routes passing by this also was difficult.
The only positive was that it was accessible to the airport and international organizations. I hear many international staff start off here when they arrive in Geneva and use it as a base to find an apartment, often for a month or more. Hats off to you because I couldn't do it.

Room Tip: All I can say is that I had a studio room on the main road and it was not advisable

When making reservation with Hotel Trente Trois they referred me to this Residence. I paid in advance and could not cancel. This is not a place for a female! Noisy, lousy and not secure at all. The only window is a French window opening to a terrace, from where the stairs lead directly to the (very busy) road. The TV did not work and there was no remote, the room was smelly and the carpet dirty.

I stayed here for one night at the beginning of a ski holiday. Very close to the airport and our room was large by Geneva standards. Wifi available and worked fine. Room was clean and the bed was firm but comfy. You have to check in at the restaurant. Staff - at least those we could identify as such - were friendly. However, I would not expect much in the way of service. I made one call to the "front desk" - wherever that is, that was not answered. Nonetheless, I found the quirkiness charming. If I had been in a bad mood, I would have found it annoying. I would probably stay here again.

Stayed for a few days to visit the Motor Show.
Rooms were clean. WiFi worked.
The rooms are managed remotely from another site, I ended up emailing the manager to keep in touch... fresh towels please? .. no reponse.
They expected me to pay cash to the restaurant at the end of the stay, or pay remotely by card, by which time my trust was wearing thin.
They claim 3 stars, but breakfast food was bread and jam only. A request for ham, cheese, salami or eggs in addition got the response of 'what do you expect for 12chf each?'

The Hotel Grand Saconnex is a great place to stay in Geneva for a reasonable price. You check in at the bar beneath the rooms and settle up the next morning the same way. This is old Europe style of service. However, the rooms are clean, there is good WiFi, there is a bus stop directly in front of the hotel, and the price was good for Geneva. We even had a small fridge in our room. This place is near the airport, but too far to walk due to the location of the terminal, Taxis seem to cruise by in front of the hotel regularly, however, and we will definitely try this place again.

  • Liked — size of room and Evian flavored water on tap!
  • Disliked — no front desk; no lift (elevator) to second floor
