I traveled to Geneva at the last minute and all (the good hotels) were booked. My PA searched around and found me a room here.
Big mistake. This place is worn and dated and feels very shabby. It promotes itself as a 4* hotel, it's more like a high 2*.
When you walk in, it feels like a retirement apartment building. They were very friendly at check in and werre very helpful. On this regard, I am pleased, but they know their hotel is bad.
I was given a room in the back "over looking the garden", not really, it was an apartment building with laundry hanging out of their windows. The glass on the closet was cracked and had some old tape on it, carpeting extemenly stained with all sorts of spots. I called to be moved and next room was not much better. They said "all rooms are the same".
All the rooms are very worn and dated. Must have been in the 80's when they were first done. The big problems are the carpeting is stained, there are no mattres pads on the bed (flimsy sheet on the matress), and everything had wear markes on it. TV was small and wall paper was coming off the walls around the edges. Bathtub was clogged and did not drain, hence poorly maintained hote.
you can't get a wi-fi signal in the rooms. They tell you you can pay for Swisscom but you can't get a signal. Instead you can sit in the lobby and access the inet there. It was pretty comical to see about 15 guest all sitting around on the chairs with laptops. This hotel is not for the business traveler.
The location is also poor. Far away from everything and in a residential area with no decent looking places to eat near by. You can take the tram into town, 3 block walk to the stop and then about 13 minute ride.
Breakfast was very expensive and look poor. I just had coffee and they had a hard time accomdating this request.
I couldn't wait to leave this hotel. Do not stay here.
