“Renovated but kept the old fashioned charm”
Reviewed October 27, 2013

Hotel is located just above the Cornavin train station in downtown Geneva. Superb location and excellent service. Rooms and lobby recently renovated with impeccable taste, but no electronic keys. The old fashioned heavy keys are still being used just a reminder of the old fashioned charm.
Breakfast is plentiful and is a good value at 19 Swiss Francs with a panoramic view from the eighth floor. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Stay away from rooms on the 8th floor. The restaurant service starts very early in the morning and m...

Good hotel 4 star +.First the location is excellent- right next to train station - trains every 5 minutes to airport (u get a free ticket from hotel). Despite the closeness to the station the hotel was quiet. The lake is 5 minutes walk,Good breakfast. Good wifi. The only small problems were that I never managed to figure out the heating system- I suppose ifi was really cold I would have asked- and I dont like shower in bath.

Very central. fantastic views from the top floor bedrooms and also from the breakfast rooms with floor to ceiling windows. friendly staff and very clean and specious rooms.
A very relaxed atmosphere.
All trams buses and trains are just by the hotel but it is not too noisy even with the windows open although it is right in the middle of the city. Really good value for your money.

Room Tip: top floor of the hotel and even better get a corner room

The location is very good. They said they have the wifi access in the room, but I can't use it at all, because it is too weak. The staff are not friendly. It's too expensive compared to other hotels in Geneva.

- we lived in 3 rd floor but very good isolation of sound even so close to the street
- young staff was very helpful and taught us about the the way

Yep, this is the squeaky clean modern basic hotel with all you need next to the station and tram/bus stops. Price is good for what it is, the standard room is spacious and has a fridge - important as Geneva is a "buy everything at the supermarket town". Hotel has coffee and tea making facilities too. A basic meal out costs CHF 20 (Euro 18, $30) - a kebap, fries and a drink. Even McDonalds is pricey. I digress, no reason to avoid Geneva for a day or two, hotels are competitive at least, as some suggest elsewhere to keep costs down, go to Department store cafeterias and yes the good old supermarket. Avoid the CHF 19 breakfast at the hotel unless included, although strangely, the breakfast room has the best view on the 8th floor, should be a bar or something .... seems under-utilised. I would definitely use this hotel for business to save money on the more expensive hotels for a longer stay without question.

Room Tip: Get a room higher up (4th floor at least) to enjoy the view.

A hotel close to Geneva Cornavin station, at a resonable price, and quiet ... what´s there not to like.

I was a little sceptical, even though I stayed here a few years back, but for a family trip to Geneva to scout out the town, this pretty much ticked all the boxes. It may not be the newest property on the block, but everything was clean and looked after, and the rooms on the higher floors are quiet. It´s not a spectactularly generous four star, but there´s space in the lobby, and free wifi (though it doesn´t work everywhere). The breakfast room is high up so you get the view in the morning before you go out to explore. And the price (via a search engine) was pretty much unbeatable.

Room Tip: Rooms higher up are probably the quietest
