ibis Geneve Centre Gare
Ranked #37 of 109 Hotels in Geneva
Reviewed August 18, 2014

We had a brief stay in Geneva very recently and chose this hotel due to its proximity to the station. There is another Ibis (an Ibis Styles) across the road from the station - do not get these mixed up! But if you do, they will direct you correctly!
When you arrive at the station, exit and turn immediately to your right and walk along the road, past 2 cross streets and the third one you arrive to, turn right, walk under an overheard bridge and you will arrive at the hotel. It probably is about a 10 minute (if that) walk.
The lobby and reception area is rather small but not inconveniencing in any way. The lifts are very tight and 4 people standing with 2 cases would fill it up!
There are not many rooms on each floor so it is rather quiet overall!
The bathrooms are small too but the room itself is comfortable enough. It is rather basic but when you stay for only a short time, it doesn't matter when its clean and comfortable.
The hotel itself is located in easy walking distance to the lake and the old town!

Chose this hotel as we were arriving in Geneva by train and it was within walking distance. It was a good choice - less than 10 minutes with the luggage. The hotel was clean and the check in was quick and easy. The internet was free. The room was small but clean. There was renovations being done to the hotel on the floors above but there was no noise and minimal disruption. The hotel was also within walking distance to Lake Geneva and the city centre. Public transport was easy to use. As previously noted, there is a Salvation Army Centre next door but it didn't cause me any concern.

Great location. Only 6 min walk to the station. Plenty of restaurants and shops nearby. 15 min walk down to the river and lake. Wifi free and great connection for all devices. Maps and transport tickets free for your stay including water taxi bus tram trains which was really helpful and encouraged us to look around even more than we would have. Works going on when we stayed but didn't have any effect at all on us. Rooms very clean. Fantasia service at reception, really helpful. Couldn't ask for more

Hotel was within 5 min walk from Gare Cornavin (main train station). Check-in was swift! Room was spacious (we got a triple room and we were given 3 single beds), clean and beds comfortable. Wifi speed was good. Around the hotel are good restaurants (mostly Italian), and coffee shops. Guy at reception gave us a map of the city and tips on must-see tourist spots. No nearby tourist spots but close to all means of transportation (bus,tram,train,taxis).
