Good value considering the city location.
Rooms in need of new carpets and new towels.
Helpful reception desk staff with excellent information.
Expensive breakfast so opted to go to a coffee bar 3 mins from the hotel.
Excellent transport system in Geneva with a free pass from the hotel.
Perfect for a 3 or 4 night stay.

The Rex Hotel. I booked this through Last minute.com online with a Special Deal, be aware it was not what was really advertised and I thought I was going to get.
The price was 40% discounted from the usual advertised rate which is not surprising as the hotel is in the middle of high rise apartments/housing estates and not really a clean area.
The room for a 4* was quite small, it had a very uncomfortable bed with 2 small pillows. Nice bathroom but the bath but too small to relax in. Dirty carpet and the view from my window was of a flat/corrugated roofs and a motorbike garage. It did have a safe which was a good point.
I am not sure if the grading of the hotel is correct, maybe a 3*.
The staff were very helpful during my stay.
I did not eat in the hotel so I cannot comment on the food.
To get to the main part of town for bars etc. is a good 15 minute walk down a main road which is not very pleasant in the evening. Get a cab or use the free bus/tram card they give you at the hotel.
I will add, take plenty of money. Get Swiss Francs not everywhere took Euros.
Airport to the hotel approx. 40 Swiss Francs (£27), hotel to the airport 30 Swiss Francs (£20). Maximum 10 minute drive.
Found a couple of bars near the lake The Grand Duke and The Clubhouse. Both serve an excellent pint of Guinness and Boddingtons. Well worth a look. Both have Sky sports and a game on Saturday afternoons. Beer averaged out at between £6-7 per pint.
I had an Indian for myself one evening (starter, curry, rice, nan & a drink) was approx. 50 Swiss Francs (£34).
Plenty of pizza, kebab and McDonalds in the city.
Once you have walked around the lake in Genève not much else to see. 2 days was more than enough for me. Some great views of the mountains by the lake.
Check that if you do book a room it comes with breakfast and the city tax is paid (approx. 10 Swiss Francs). Brush up on your French as well.
I took a chance on a Secret Escaped and it backfired on me, others may have had better luck.
I won't be chancing a Secret Escape again.

I reserved a room for this hotel for March 2014 via venere.com, and chose to pay on arrival. Imagine my surprise when in December the hotel takes the money out of my account! I was horrified! After making the reservation with the specific condition to pay on arrival I was so angry that the hotel had taken my money without even informing or asking me. Whether this was an issue with the hotel or booking agent I don't know but needless to say I promptly cancelled my reservation. I called venere.com to find out why this had happened and they said 'sometimes the hotel will do that to make sure you are real!' Very disappointed in the service and will not be using either the hotel or agent again.

Very nice hotel. Staff very helpful with directions. Large spacious room. Very easy transportation system in Geneva and hotel has easy walk to several different tram stops. As others have commented on this site NH Rex needs carpet upgrade but rooms clean and plenty of hot water. We were very pleased.

The hotel is OK and it is aligned to Geneve prices and standards. The personnel is really kind and the breakfast is really rich. Anyway, if you work on the other side of the lake you should keep into account that the traffic in the morning could be really messy and it can take up to 30 minutes to reach the other side of the lake

It was absolutely great stay with great price for Geneva. Hotel is situated near the centre. Maybe more hotels are exactly in the middle of town, but with free public transport card is it not important - you can travel without limitation. Bus stop to the centre is 200 m. Bus stop to the United Nations and botanic garden is exactly by the hotel (there you can switch on tram to the centre). Hotel is quiet, furniture is in rustic style and elegant. Everything was clean, people were nice, I cant find any mistake. NH hotels are globally high standard hotels with acceptable price and this one wasn´t different. Of course, just in my opinion :) 5*

Tha area is not the one that you enjoy taking a walk, no closer restaurants to hVe dinner, there is no restaurant in the hotel. The rooms are big but old. Lot of noises coming from other rooms, maybe the building structure is old and is difficult to avoid noises between rooms... Today is getting really difficult to sleep :-(
