Stayed in November with my girlfriend. Overall impression from the hotel was good.
Location is far from perfect since you have to walk a pretty long distance (15min) to get to the city center, but for that you get a beautiful view over the lake for a price somewhat lower than of the competitors which are located more conveniently (Kempinsky and other).
We stayed for 3 nights and then for 4 nights and both times we were upgraded to a lake-view room free of charge - very nice indeed! Room was of a high quality, beds were very comfy (not too soft), air-conditioning was user-friendly and worked very well.
In one room (531) TV was not working at all and in another (431) iphone/ipad charger was not working as well. That was not a concern for us and we have not even asked to fix that before leaving. Cleaning was good, bath was good, may be slight renovation is required. Rooms are not completely sound proof - you can hear what is going on in the corridor or if someone is making love in the next room =) Breakfast was OK.
With all this drawbacks I still recommend the hotel and put 5* rating to it due to room upgrades, very welcoming staff and its readiness to help with everything we needed. For example we requested an extra blanket to our king-size bed and that was done without any delays.
I think for price/value that is a great place to stay, really 5* but not as expensive as other 5* hotels in Geneva.
