“Not bad if you're stuck for a room in Geneva”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2012

Stayed here when I couldnt find anywhere else to stay. It is in the red light district, so quite noisy outside. Unfortunately, the windows aren't very well isolated, so it is quite noisy inside.
They have clearly made an effort to make the place look nice, but it is rather dated all the same.
All in, this is still a good deal for a hotel in central Geneva, though I'd check availability at the Windsor across the street before booking here; rates are approximately the same, and the Windsor definitely gets you a lot more value for money.

Totally yucky hotel in a lousy area. Do not trust the photos they provide, it´s a nasty lie.
Lack of service and awful location is what I can say about the hotel. I booked a room that looked wonderful in the picture, but I got a shabby cell with old furniture. AVOID!!!
I know Geneve is extremely expensive, but believe me you´ll pay anything just to escape from this terrible nashville hotel.

It's a nice hotel with very spacious rooms and it's well maintained. My stay there (2 days) was very comfortable. However, if you are there with family and children, avoid this hotel, as it's in a seedy locality. It's very close to the railway station and to the banking district, so very centrally located.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are good, so you need not worry. However, stay on the higher floors, as it's qu...

If you've read any reviews you know this hotel is in the heart of Geneva red light district. The are outside of hotel is dirty, dingy and shady. However that is not really the problem I have with this hotel.

Rooms are not dirty and furniture feels like 20 year old IKEA furniture.

There is no internet, and the hotel sells access cards to some other internet provider, which would have been fine, but there was simply no way to log onto their service (waste of 20 CHFs).

Having stayed here I will make sure to never go back.

i chose this hotel because of its good price for a 4 stars hotel. it is quite far for being 4 stars at the first place. very poor breakfast(25CHF).NO MINI BAR.you need to ask for everything even the towels.the receptionist is the concierge and he does everything so he wont have the time to assist you in whatever you need.
prostitutes all over the street even early in the morning .loud voices

Room Tip: on the 4th floor

In the middle of the prostitute district. Rooms are the size of shoe boxes. There is 1 iron for the entire hotel.
