Note: I am not a backpacker and have never been one to skimp on accomodations.
My husband and I decided to take an impromptu detour to Geneva while on our Honeymoon in France.
We stumbled upon this "hotel" when looking for last min. accomodations. I figured that for the price of $140 Swiss Francs this would at least be the equivilant of a Holiday Inn. I was sadly mistaken.
The room was poorly decorated, smelled musty, felt dirty and the bathroom was below standards. I was already accustomed to the small rooms in France, but this did not feel welcoming. Yes, breakfast was included, but it was nothing more than some stale bread, cereal and bad coffee.
The location was very good (I guess that's what we were paying for) and the lady at the front desk was very helpful in showing us where to go.
I would not stay here again, but I would recommend this for students on a budget who do not mind giving up some of the comforts in exchange for location and price.More
