And well priced (for CH)

Nice room overlooking lake.

Pleasant meal, even if a bit pricy, and restaurant a bit 'stuffy', so ate in the bar as less formal.

Bit out of the way, but worked for business trip to Cornaux

I like the renovated room. It was simple (no fancy features, no minibar) and functional. In the room you find a free bottle of water and some sweets. From our room we had a wonderful view on the lake. The same view you get at breakfast on their terrace. The breakfast buffet (included in the room price) provides an excellent choice and they make you coffee, tea, eggs or anything on request.

Room Tip: Get a room with a view on the lake

We spent four days at this lovely hotel and enjoyed every minute of our stay. The place is clean, modern and comfortable. All rooms have been recently upgraded. The food was excellent as was the service. Very friendly management. I give it a very strong recommendation!

It's a nice, little hotel, very conveniently located and reasonably priced at the center of Geneva. Good for business travelers on a budget.
PS The room price includes the breakfast as well.

Someone booked this hotel for a few of us for a business meeting. This is definitely too expensive for the amenities. A few north American colleagues were very concerned with lack of fire escape amenities. The rooms were damp and musty with old furniture and linen. Toilets are just passable. Although the location is good (close to public transport and the lake), for this price I am sure there are better hotels around.

Great location and friendly staff, unfortunately the rooms are very old and expensive relative to their condition.
