“Gorgeous wall of glass view!”
Reviewed June 5, 2013

My husband and I spent three nights here in early June. We had a room on the 9th floor with a great view of the Notre dame cathedral and all of Geneva . . . The water jet and the Old Town from afar. The view was a huge highlight for us. The room was kind of 70's mod. it had a frosted curved glass wall separating the bathroom. Bath room had a tub which was a plus as most euro hotels seem to have tiny showers. The panoramic breakfast room had stunning views as well. Wifi happened to not work on the 9 th floor. I looked at two other rooms on lower floors and decided to stay where we were as the view was so fantastic. The hotel comped us one breakfast since wifi did not work. All we had to do was go down the hall and we got the wifi signal, so no big deal. Comfy bed and linens. Small tv but good enough and could watch the French open with English commentators! Yea! Nice location to town and to train station. We had a 15 day Swiss rail pass which we used to travel through the entire country. I would highly recommend the Pass. We picked most hotels near train stations. Two restaurants near hotel were chez ma Cousine and the Manor depot store top floor restaurant. Both had great food and were reasonable for Switzerland which primarily has very expensive prices for food. We took a day trip to Nyon . . . Gorgeous town! Took train there and boat back to Geneve. We would stay here again. The price was great on the weekend.

Room Tip: Love the ninth floor wall of glass with Fab views. Great room darkening drapes so no problem with s...

It's located on the same side of train station, the train noise sounds like far away thunder. Room is not romatic at all, only ok for business trip if company will pay 4 star price. I'd rather choose other nice and sweet 3 star hotels near station, lake with free wifi but cheaper price.

I don't understand why an Hotel like this has 4 Stars.
The only good thing of the Hotel is the Price/Value, it is cheaper and you discover why, as soon as you are at the reception.
I was at the third floor near the Elevators, very noisy and old room.

We spent 2 nights there in April 2013. Great location beside the main train station and adjacent to a major city transit hub. Got our free transit passes for our stay when we checked in. Front desk staff were very helpful in assisting us in using the transit system, recommending restaurants and sights to see. If possible get a room 8th floor or above. They have full glass exterior walls. Very clean and functional. Free WiFi.

If you are planning to go to Geneva for short bussines trip, this hotel is a very good option, free wifi, decent breakfast, super clean. But do not expect something execeptional, normal room, a bit noisy if you need to open the the windows. Staff in the reception, incredible Unfriendly, horrible!! Is the worst staff that i have ever seen in any hotel. In general good choise for 2 days bussiness trip.

This hotel is conveniently located to the Geneva Cornavin Railway Station, 10 minutes by train from the airport. The rooms on the upper levels are good and many have excellent views. The rooms are quite well insulated from outside noise (e.g., the railway station), but poorly insulated from internal corridor noise. The breakfast restaurant has great views. Wireless internet was free and relatively fast. I thought that the price was a little excessive.

Room Tip: Rooms on the upper floor facing away from the railway station are the best.

We arrived late and left early. We were three and had one room. Normally a room for 3 involves a tiny foldaway bed. Our room was huge with proper size beds and room for more. Plus a huge, well equipped bathroom. Very comfortable beds and good quality bedding. Breakfast was in a genuinely panoramic room at the top of the hotel - that was ok rather than great and not of the standard of the room. Very convenient location as well.
