Had an excellent time in Geneva and this hotel is great value for a break, I booked using the hotels own website and also printed the breakfast voucher off this website for a free breakfast, which is in a rather nice room on the 8th floor where you can see the "water jet" and catherdral and mountains over the rooftops. We got an excellent deal on the hotel website for a 2 night stay (£55 a night for a double room) and got breakfast thrown in with the voucher. Geneva is not a cheap place so I was "very pleased" our hotel and breakfast was probably cheaper than the equivelant in the UK. Room is compact but very clean and I thought quite cool, had kettle and coffee/tea and a tele and a comfy bed. nice shower (no bath) usual toiletries etc.
We arrived by plane and took the train to the centre, its a 5 minute train journey and you can get a free ticket to travel if you look for the machine in the bag collection area (check Geneva airport website for more info). Easy to find the train station, the the hotel is about a 4 minute stroll once you get off the train, 3 minutes getting out the train station and 1 minute around the corner to the hotel. It was so easy from getting off the plane to getting to our hotel room as well.
To get a free trip back to the airport on the train, use the Geneva travel card the hotel gives you...you could use it around Geneva as well but we walked.
The hotel is also about a 10 minute stroll down the the lake, and is in a good district for food and drink / shops etc (as its next to the train station), so could not have asked for much more.
On top of that weather was excellent, recommend a dip in the lake and a stroll around the old town and have a Calvinus beer in the squre.
Overall, thoughly recommended.
