We stayed here for three nights and absolutely loved our room and the Cornavin Hotel.
We were fortunate enough to have a room on the top floor (room 910) – we were excited by the prospect of some city views – what we didn’t expect was a wall-to-ceiling glass view overlooking the city, down to the lake and horizon views of the old town! WOW!! Spectacular views of the city 24/7 – even from bed we could watch the lights of the city and the sunrise... perfect!
Our room was spacious – the bed was UBER comfortable and faced the glass wall – it was incredibly relaxing to come back to our room after a full day of sightseeing and just flake out on the bed and watch the city unfold. The A/C was industrial (you could turn the room into an icebox if you wanted) and it was quiet as a mouse, there were also floor length black-out curtains that kept the room dark at night.
There were tea/coffee-making facilities & plenty of storage space for clothes, bags, shoes and a small desk/office area. The bathroom was separated from the bedroom by frosted glass which was great for light ambiance, but not so much for sound-proofing!
The hotel is conveniently located next to the main train station and is easily accessible from ground level or from the underground passage (which exits right next to the hotel entrance). The reception staff were welcoming and helpful and explained the conditions of the free travel passes (on buses, trams and the yellow boats) that all hotels must provide to guests upon arrival. The hotel foyer has plenty of couches and tables for relaxing (but mostly used by guests for wifi access – as it was intermittent in the rooms).
Breakfast is on the 8th floor – which is called the ‘panorama’ room as it has wall-to-ceiling views of the city – breakfast was not included in our room price (and was an extra 19CHF each) so we opted to eat outside in the cafes as it was cheaper and from what we could tell – the hotel breakfast was limited to continental options.
If we were to return to Geneva – we will make The Cornavin our first choice for a relaxing stay and we definitely recommend it!!
